I'm from Canada and been looking at this trailer from rv wholesalers. 10-15k$ savings from anywhere else I've looked. MSRP of the the one with all the options i want is $40000. There quote to me is $26000. It will be worth the 2 day drive to go pick it up.

Yea i agree with that kind of savings. How bad will Canada tax you when you cross border? Good luck on your purchase. Kelly Tussing took care of me there. I plan to return in a couple years for a fifth wheel.

Tax will will be 5% + a $200 import fee. But our dollar is over par right now at $1.023 so I save there again too.

Wow! that is a big savings. Will they also take trades? Also, what about any warranty issues that might arise?
Thanks

Not sure about trades but they have service partners through out North America. They have 3 shops here in my town that will do warranty work. Go check them out at rvwholesalers.com. They'll answer any questions you have better than I can.

10x, I had a warranty issue and a recall on my camper. I took it to a local dealer and they did the repair. Forest River paid for them both, once I got reimbursed, the other they paid directly. Rvwholesalers service network will assist you with it or you can do like i did and deal with forest river directly. Most dealers give priority to those who purchase from them, but I had no issues getting repaired. Like SWA said they will answer all those questions for you. That's the only disadvantage to buying out of town and dealers hate the wholesalers. But with that type of savings, I'll do it again.

Please clarify - you had a warranty claim, but had to pay upfront and get reimbursed?

Wincrasher,

I had a repair that was covered under warranty, however the dealer I took it to for repair did not want to wait to be paid by forest river. I wanted my camper back rather quick so I told the guy I would pay for the repair. The warranty guy at Forest River was awesome. His words to the dealer were do what ever it take to make the customer happy. I had my check from Forest River in a week or so. It was a minor low cost repair so I had no issue with it. Delears in my area don't sale my camper so when I never get asked why I didn't buy from them.

All good information. What sort of gear does it take to get this beast right at the GVWR of 8000(+/-). I have a Harley and a KTM that I'll be lugging around. I figure that and the water and fuel and I'm probably at around 7400.

How does the Forest River rig compare to the other one (I think its an XLT 276).

How are the support elements like the HVAC, pumps, and other contributors to a solid rig?

BG I tow with a my xlr with a suburban 2500 and I have a Harley and Golf cart. I don't have the fuel station option and I try to limit how far I tow a full tank of fresh water. I get it as close to my campsite as possible when dry camping. My ac and heat both work well. The only thing I would change is more ac vents in the garage area, but I've heard the same from 5th wheel owners.
