I visited a very large RV dealer. They gave me an MSRP breakdown sheet. It was printed on plain paper and not formatted like you'd expect. I went over it next to Cedar Creeks list of what was included in the option packages. The dealer was double counting items in the option packages and listing them again as as 'add on'. This helped inflate the MSRP by $6,000, I assume so they could 'negotiate' better. Frankly, I consider this lying and didn't go back. If they lie before you even ask a question then consider what they will do down the road. They also tout their service but then I read feedback on this forum on someone whose trailer had been there for months waiting for warranty work. I didn't buy from them.
