My local dealer matched the RVW price, so I went with them. there logic was I'd be back for service and supplies which I have been.
First to be fair to the local dealer, determine the delivery cost and if your local dealer has it priced into the deal or not, some add it on after the deal. then ask them to match the RVW price, or get as close to it as they can, once you know that price you can determine if traveling to pick up a unit still has as much value as you think. At 4K it sounds good, but you will have 450.00 in gas, hotel 100.00 food 50.00, 2 most likely 3 days used of vacation time, one night camping 50.00. All of a sudden up are at 600.00 and I'm sure there are other costs, so if you dealer came down 2K is the trip still worth it?
