However, that was a huge factor when we traded that TT in on a fifth wheel. We kept it local this time.
How much extra did you spend going local? For me, it would have been $3-$5K every time on TT's in the low $20's price range. If your story is the same, you basically paid thousands for a 1 year warranty. You can pay for a lot of work out of pocket, use who you want and get much better service than most dealers offer by going to an independent tech and still be WAY ahead. But, once again, if you buy from a place like RVWholesalers, you will be assisted in finding someone local to work on your rig.
