Well, after trying to deal down Steve Caseys and Camping World (CoSpings) on an Outback 298RE, and making offers on both, which were more than enough to cover delivery from Ohio, I was declined on both. I did make offers to both Windjammer dealers and was given their best price, which was about $4K at least off from Ohio.
And we wanted some specifics on the order, we were not given a warm fuzzy on the delivery date. However, RVW told us they would substitute what we wanted on one of their current orders, so they got our business (and at least $3K off the best price to settle for a camper without the desired options from a local.)
I was also told more than once by the sales associates, that buying a camper was about comprimise. Well, if the price would have reflected it, I may have been more inclined to comprimise.
I tried to give them my business, but I'm not going to give them an extra $3-4K in extra profit. $1 or $2K, if I can get what I wanted is ok, but not just to provide them with the ADP (additional dealer profit), which is a term associated with auto deals.
Now, I'm sitting in Sidney Ohio overnight, getting ready to close a deal on what I originally wanted. I will overnight about 5 miles from RVW to fully check out all the systems and if all goes well, be on my way down south for an extended week to have the grandparents get together with the grandkid.
