Dealership Buying Experience-Solera

I am cocked on a Solera 24 R and am getting ready to pull the trigger and buy. Appreciate any info on your buying experiences (Pros/Cons) to help in my purchase. I am now in the negotiation phase on pricing "Out-The-Door." Seems the price is much better out-of-state. I would like to buy at my hometown but looks like I can save an extra few thousand or more by purchasing out-of-state. I hope I can get my warranty done locally. Your thoughts please. Thanks in advance.
Respectfully to All,
Zama

it would help if you posted what state or region you're in, so that some can recommend dealers near you.

i think he is referring to the OP's other posts, critical of FR and Solera.
and that he paid $71,000 for his Solera, with all options from RVDirect.

Zama had many critical thing to say in other posts (post wise to bclemens).

i was giving him a price quote from rvdirect so he could compare price.

although rv direct is not always the lowest it's usually in the pack at the lowest figure

I got my 24S from RV direct and I can't complain, everythings working good and the price was lower than anything I could buy locally. Just wish they had come out with the 24R before I bought the 24S.
