Good news, Bad news!

Received some good news and some bad news from my dealer today. The good news is that our 2011 2304 Mini-Lite is sitting in Elkhart Ind, waiting to be picked up. The bad news is that because of the high cost of fuel they are having trouble private drivers to deliver them. Not sure if I would want to go pick it up myself without it being checked over pretty good.

picking up trailer

Your dealer should be "checking Out " your new trailer. Last fall when we found ours ,it was on the west side of Michigan, in muskegon about 230 miles away ,(slightly used )but a great savings vs new. They said it could be brought to my house for $250. I had bought a brand new truck and wanted to get around 1000 miles on it before towing . so let THEM do the inspection . if you have or can make the time have them demonstrate and explain take a camera or video and note pad. good lucl !

are you serious??? with all the profit they make on what we actually pay the dealer when we buy a new trailer, that should be no problem for them. ridiculous,-- thats part of their job , is to get the trailer to you! i hope it works our for you, that is frustrating!

The really dumb thing is that we were just in the area a couple of weeks ago visiting our son in Middleburry, right by Elkhart. Oh Well!

trailer pick-up

I am new to the rv stuff , i assumed most people pick up their rvs from the place they bought it from. Usually being local purchases. Mine was worth the trip having saved about $7000. being 1 year old and slightly used.

I live in Elkhart and everyday I see dozens of units headed out of town, last night at Meijer there were 2 Rockwood fifth wheels and a Kodiak in the parking lot - the drivers were getting supplies for the trip. I would question your dealer.
