28DS Purchase Questions
First off, a big thank you to everyone that posts information on this forum. We have done a ton of research into MHs and this forum has been a huge help.
We are looking at purchasing a 2016 FR3 28DS. We really like the coach (we have been to a couple different dealers in central Ohio to look at them in person a few times) and it has everything we want. We were originally looking at used but the price difference is small compared to all the improvements they have made over the years. We plan to do a lot of dry camping (we go to a lot of dirt track and NASCAR races) with some campground trips when we have time.
A couple questions I was hoping for some feedback..
1) Did anyone purchase an extended warranty if the dealer offers? I see a lot of small problems on here that I think I can handle with all the info here. I just didn't know if anyone advises the extended warranty from their experience.
2) Is it worth haggling with a dealer to get some accessories installed instead of trying to knock a few bucks off? This will be our first RV purchased new and I wasn't sure how most dealers are. We stopped at a couple CWs and felt like we were just another warm body thru the door. So we are leaning towards a local smaller dealer.
3) We are upgrading from a 1989 28 ft Coachman C class (huge upgrade we know!). Looks like the opinions on driveability are mixed on here. Is there a huge difference in handling compared to an older c- class?
Any other advice for first time potential FR3 owners is greatly appreciated!! Also any other feedback in regards to the 28DS as well.
Looking forward to becoming FROGs 🐸
