RV Direct, RV Wholesale or RV Direct Wholesale?

We are planning to purchase a new Flagstaff or Rockwood trailer and I have been looking at the 3 wholesalers listed in the thread title. Can anyone provide any feedback on which one I should or should not choose? Based on the total delivered price RV Direct Wholesale is leading in my mind.

I considered RV DIRECT...but never followed through with it. I bought local. They didn't carry the model I wanted.

We just used RVW in Ohio and ae very pleased with the service and the price. they did not hit us with any extra charges and only pushed a little on the upgrades. They were reasonable with the upgrades I did go with.

Does anyone know if RV Direct requires full payment up front or if it is on delivery?

You could also use those price quotes from any of those 3 wholesalers for leverage with a local RV dealer. I've read posts on other sites where buyers have done that and the local dealer matched the wholesaler's price, or at least came close.

Hey, Newbie here
After much research, we read that the prices RVW were very good. We priced a few Travel Trailers around town to back our research. So we went to RVW, loaded out a 2008 Rockwood 8317SS and sent this quote to the local dealers. Three of them said they would match the price of everything listed. A week and a half ago we took delivery of our new TT. Hope this helps.

Before I make a move I will try my local dealers but I am not holding out much hope. The local dealer is about $13,000 high on a $22000 unit. Even after I factor in a couple of thousand for shipping it is still a very long way for them to move. I am still looking for someone who has experience with RV Direct Wholesalers. Any one?
