I bought from RVW. I got exactly what I wanted, at the best price I could find. There was no "pressure" (how can you be pressured over the phone, anyway). I was asked if I wanted the extended warranty. I declined and that was that. My saleman was helpful and courteous.

I would go back to them for any future purchase.

How can you be pressured by phone? The same way as by email or in person. By telling a potential buyer that the deal was only good until the end of business that day and that the buyer needed to ACT NOW and doing the same over and over after each question was asked by phone or email. Also, by calling and leaving messages and unsolicited emails stating the same.

I'm glad you didn't experience this Tim but please don't diminish others who have. Obviously myself and the +1's to my post are not making it up as we have nothing to gain by doing so. Just stating our experiences...

We bought from RVW in Lakeview and took possession of our Heritage Glen 282RK in June this year. Our sales person, Cyndi Fowler, was very attentive and accommodating every step of the way. We spent hours with her when on site looking at inventory and worked with her for a new 2016 build from the factory. During the sale and build she answered emails promptly and always with every detail of information we expected. We followed up every phone conversation with email verification on what was discussed to be sure we all understood what was agreed on, also to have a complete paper trail.

Since taking possession and during our first trip out with the new unit, we've had a few warranty issues and have worked with Laurie McCullough in Warranty. Sometimes a response back from her is not prompt and we have had to take the initiative to stay on top of it with repeated calls or emails (our preferred for a paper trail). We have found it to be necessary to be informed and armed with our research on each issue to keep the process going for a satisfactory resolution. Part of this could be that she is the only person handling warranties (a guess on our part based on conversation). While it's irritating and frustrating at best, we've found this to be true on most any product/warranty issue.

Regardless of what one is buying, the sale is as good as the agent's sales tactics, communications and how the buyers expectations are met. One person's experience may not be the same as the next. First impressions mean a lot and one must go with their gut and be informed with what they want to determine what's good for them.

Couch's were great to deal with. Bought my first "new" TT there in 2014. No BS just good people. I would recommend them highly.

RVW were great to deal with, no issues or pressure. Yes they asked if I wanted things, but said no and that was it. I think people have a huge variance on what they call 'pressure'. Delivered to Canada, saved a crap load vs local.

Another happy RVW customer here. I'm on my 3rd TT in I guess 4 years now and all deals have been very smooth and easy. Tons of family and friends have purchased during that time and all have been well taken care of.

We were very happy. Flew in the night before. They brought us to hotel and to dealership in the morning. Had the walk through and were on our way at lunch time.

We just purchased a new columbus 377mb from RVW. As this is our first RV I did at least 6 months of research including going to the RV show in Hershey and spending a week in Florida visiting many different dealers. When you go to the dealer review section of the forum one dealer really stands out with all positive reviews. You guessed it, RVW. And the owner, Dave Durnell is also very active on the forums and reached out to us several times. As for the salespeople, I did prefer one over the one that I originally talked to. But compared to other dealers I talked to, night and day difference. And no pressure whatsover. The finance guy, Dallas, did recommend some add ons that we are considering but no pressure. They even talked me out of a couple of options that I really didn't need and they explained why. They could have easily made more money if they hadn't. And thats why we live in New Jersey, bought from RVW in Ohio and having it delivered to Florida. If you'd like to hear about our salesman experience, PM me.
