Analysis paralysis. A common problem with too much info. As Ben Franklin or some other famous person said: a man with one clock knows the time; a man with two clocks is never sure.

A stopped clock is exactly correct twice a day.

Trust a man who is searching for truth, but shy away from one that claims to have found it.

But it's good to know that there are at least 2 dealers people are happy with. Sounds like you can't go wrong with either one. Go over to RV.net and read some of those reviews...Oy Vay.

IMO, as long as they carry whatever brand I'm after, I would buy from RVW in a heartbeat. The fact that ddurnell watches this forum and has proven helpful time and time again is enough for me. I know people personally who have bought from them and I have friends of friends who have bought from them.

Ohio Dealers

After searching for more than a year looking at dozens of makes and models we often returned to Couches RV. Nation. Ray Crain kept in touch and responded to our questions and selling price of the RV''s which was thousands less than others. No pressure to purchase! We traveled over 600 miles to take delivery of the RV in August 2015. Everything was ready when we arrived and about three hours later (after thorough instruction and inspection) we were on our way. When the time comes we will most certainly contact Mr. Crain and Couches Trailers. This was a very good experience!

I talked briefly with RVW did not like the conversations. Saleman couldn't tell me any more about the trailer than the website Did. Did not want to do cash. Only knocked off 500 bucks if I financed through them. Nothing if I paid cash. Salesman told me cash doesn't talk like it used. That's amazing as it talked wonders when I bought local Plemmons RV. It knocked just over 5 grand off a 15k trailer.

What exactly did you manage to get for under $10k?

2012 Catalina 271bh. I was looking at a new Catalina at RVW. Apple's and oranges but he didn't budge 500 bucks. I NEVER pay sticker.

RVW gives everyone a good upfront price; kind of a no haggle price; I like that. Is that the price you are calling "sticker"?

Did you compare RVW to the local dealer for a new one?

That $15k initial asking price (sticker?) seems about $4k to $5k high... a standard tactic.

I was all over the $1500 RVW discounted to finance for a year. And knew the number they gave me was $7k below any local dealer; and cash meant nothing.
