Upgrading soon

We are new to the forum and also to Forest River, we are upgrading from a 2002 Keystone Bobcat to a 8312ss (I hope) and wanted to get any advice we could. We will probably need to buy used since our budget is 22,000, does anyone have advice for buying a used trailer(we failed badly on our last purchase). We are in Texas and looking for the best dealership to purchase from;if there is one. Also what is the best way to negotiate the best deal? I have been all over RV trader and price are all over the place depending on the part of the country. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Here is just a thought. Have you considered looking in Canada? Today the exchange rate is 35%. That means 1 US dollar is worth 1.35 Canadian. That means 22000 US is worth 29700 Canadian.

Buy up here!!

Example. I paid the same in Canadian dollars for my sabre, as they were selling for in the USA.

The 55 I paid would cost you 41...

Not sure where you are located at in Texas, but check out Fun Town RV. They have 3 locations. We have dealt with the one in Cleburne and they had the best prices and best quality. They are also very friendly and helpful, but not pushy,

Try the online wholesalers. it will cost you nothing to spec out your trailer and get a decent price. If any thing it ll get you a baseline price on what itll cost new vs used. I used Rvone and(knock on wood) havent had to use any warranty work and i would say I save enough over local dealer pricing to get any work done out of pocket
