Local dealer that was an hour and a half south of me

took a week to be delivered to the dealership after it was released from production and then It actually arrived at the dealership on wednesday March 2nd -
Took a week to PDI, install the Grab Handle and (2) two Max Air Covers and then setup a appointment because they were also installing my hitch as well.
I had a few small issues and gonna call the factory about the Storm Windows cause they just cover the existing windows and makes it to where you cant open the windows

That gives me a little hope. Since RVW is a few hours from the Rockwood plant it may take a day or two to get there once released. I'll just have to push them to prep it if I think I will be up against our trip dates. Thanks and I hope you enjoy the new TT. Other than the screens, anything else you find wrong or need fixing.

screens were ok - the issue I have is the storm window option makes the windows un-usable unless I remove the storm window itself worst design cause I was thinking storm windows just meant they were double pained glass - wishful thinking - going to be calling the factory about how to remove them if I can

only issue's I saw on my unit were a few nick's in the cabinetry, a foot print on one of the piece's of wood under the seat cushion for the dinner table and a few grease marks - other then that I couldnt have asked for a better looking trailer to be delivered to me

our order was placed via a local dealer (almost 2k less than RVW) just this week. we were told 8 weeks for delivery but could be sooner.

Great. What state are you in. My buying experience was the opposite. I shared RVW's price with 4 dealers including the one I bought our 2010 from last May. 2 would not even offer a quote as they could not compete and the other 2 were over $2k more. None of these dealers were local either(all 2 hours+ away). RVW is 7 hours. So an extra 10 hours in the Truck was worth $2k to me. Glad your local dealer was competitive but looking at RVW's price I can see why noone could touch it. They deeply discounted it.

I noticed one thing when I bought my trailer - if they deeply discount the trailer - look at the options prices cause after comparing a few places for the trailer they were very close but what seperated them was the options price - that is where they are making there money - not so much on the unit itself.
I also realize they are in business to make money - but not to make a killing of me though if I can help it anyways LOL

I live in Wisconsin and sent my model number and options list to two rockwood and two flagstaff dealers all are wihin an hour from me. I informed all who I sent it to and asked for their best price. two dealers where well under RVW's price so it came down to faric choices as one was a Flagstaff and the other was a rockwood.

I hope you did as good as you think. Even though RVW has a low price listed, I was still able to knock off an additional $2,500 off that. Had I not gotten the extra $2,500 off I would have had all the dealers competing at that point and of the two that did give me a price one would have beaten RVW'ers.

The only reason I am going from a Rockwood to a Flagstaff is the fabric colors. My DW liked the colors better on the Flagstaff. (I did to, but don't tell her!)
