Best RV has a pretty bad reputation on the Internet.
do a search on them, on any RV forums and you may decide to buy from someone else.

i shopped there back in 2006 and, by the way i was treated, i refuse to buy anything from them, even a $1 part.

I've heard rv dealers are all bad when it comes to any or all warranty issues .. I just wanna be sure I can get every option included when buying .. best rv offered me $16500 for the 26tbss full power option ..

i suggest getting some prices from places like RVW or RVDirect and compare.

that's what i did and found that they were $5000 cheaper on a HTT with a MSRP of only $20k.

16500. seems like a very good price. I haven't had any problem with the dealership. I didn't deal with them in 2006 . I had looked them up on BBB. At the time their issues were resolved. That,s better than I payed. Is that with the leveling jacks? tv?

I bought a the same camper back in Feb full power and best deal in Georgia was 17500. Love it so far, only issues have been having to get the roof replaced due to a tree falling thru it. Now dealing with the dealer on stuff they messed up on.

I purchased a 26tbss from Best RV in February, 16800 no power option. I have not had any service needs so I don't know how they are on that but if you buy from them negotiate the battery and full propane tanks in the deal that is extra. Lock your wallet in your truck during your walk through because they include a trip through the store, tell you installation is free for all you buy during the walk through then jack the prices up. I was straight out lied to when told my drain hose from my old trailer wouldn't work on the new trailer, then they tried to charge me double for batteries when I wanted to go with 6 volts ($300 each).
