My local dealer lost a chance to sell 2 campers to me and my friend back in 2012. We gave them an at bat, but they wouldn't budge of their 'best price' which was significantly higher than the RVW quote.
The sales manager actually remembered me when we went back this time, and he was truly grateful that we gave them a chance to earn our business again. I made sure he understood that if he could not meet or beat the lowest quote I had (from RVW) then we had nothing to talk about. He joked and said "I remember having this conversation with you a couple years ago"
In the end, he actually beat (by just a little bit) the RVW price on my new 8239. I truly like RVW. We had a great experience dealing with them and would not hesitate to buy from them again, but I also like keeping my money local, and supporting local business.
The moral of this story is, its your money. Shop around. Don't be afraid to tell a dealer "I have a quote from X. Can you beat it?" You owe no particular dealer anything. They are out to make the best deal for them. You are out to make the best deal for you. If you can't make a deal, walk away and find someone else.
The other moral is, dealers remember, and they can learn. lol
