The closest Work & Play dealership to me is 3 hours away. Since that is what I wanted, I had little choice.

I guess you pays your nickel and takes your chances. Everything seems to require a compromise somewhere.

I can see your point but you miss two things,1) if you do not live near a dealer (like myself) 2) yes you can save, and as rving gets busier by the minute a lot of folks will have to wait days or longer weather they purchased it at that dealer or not.
I have had issues will dealers doing this as many others and i took it back to the selling dealer.
So my point is "Until the manufacturers change their contracts and make them like car dealers nothing is going to change for the better!"

Buying nearby does not guarantee service satisfaction. There are many stories and I've heard from friends that many dealers make their money selling so having service done at dealers is often not the best experience. Recommendation is to find a shop that specializes in service and not selling RVs. In my area there's even a few mobile service guys that are highly recommended. There are some particulars to consider though, like a factory warranty that may require an authorized dealer to do the work, however, that may not exclude independent service so long as they're authorized/certified, and another scenario may be if it needs to go back to the factory for some major repair and you need to get the dealer involved. But not sure if this would even come into play.

I'm on my third camper from RVWholsalers since 2012. They are almost exactly 1000 miles from my front door. Best decision I've ever made. Every time I buy its like I've already paid 15-20% down compared to local prices. Better customer service than my local dealers to boot.
