But do yourself a favor and check out the 26rr fir only $400 more. I just bought a 26rr from them and had it shipped to Florida. I was originally working up a deal for a 22rr but switched to a 26rr after I looked at it closer online

We purchased our TT through Camping World's website. I live in the Seattle, WA area and we did some window shopping in Vancouver, WA while on a trip. We found a TT close to what we were looking for, but could only get the floor plan of the Rockwood 8310SS we had fallen in love with from the factory. There are no Rockwood dealerships in the Seattle area. While camping on the Oregon coast I found the TT we wanted on-line at a Camping World website. I thought that IA meant Idaho and pursued the sale. During the process I realized that it meant Iowa, 1,800 miles away. We still worked with Tom Finnegan of Camping World of Cedar Falls and got our TT delivered. We were pleased with the price and the dealership. Buying through CW also gives you some great perks, along with the sale. They were very accommodating and provided many photographs and assurances to this nervous purchaser who was buying it sight unseen. Warranty, however, is only through other Forest River dealerships, and not through CW as I had assumed. All in all, it worked well for us.

Camping World in Fort Meyers FL Honors forest river warranties And FR works with them, in Fact I'm not sure if there's a brand out there they won't do Warranty work on .

Thumbs up Bought Flagstaff 27 RLWS in NY

We bought our 2014 Flagstaff RLWS from RV Direct in Albany NY with no regrets at all.
We live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts but couldn't find the floor plan or the options we wanted at any dealers near us. We even tried to purchase it from a dealer in Rhode Island that sold Flagstaffs but they actually refused to order it and blew us off.......they wanted to sell what they had on the lot only. (Ironically they lost out on 2 sales, ours plus our friends that were with us who were prepared to dump up to 80G's on a new 5th wheel.)
Price was not the issue but we where pleasantly surprise at the savings we got as well as the options we could choose dealing with RV Direct.
It was a little strange to say "I bought a new camper all on line" though.
Warranty work was a fear I had BUT I had little issues that I took care of only because it would have cost me way too much money to take to the nearest Forest River dealer anyway.
After waiting for the "build", we spent a weekend and drove up to Albany to pick it up and the rest is history...........

Online buying from another state

I believe if you sell your old RV, you will come out much better than trading one in. The dealer really does not want your old one unless it is almost new. He isn't going to be willing to lower his price on the new one you want either, if a trade is involved. I sold my old Holiday Rambler(94 yr. model) for what I paid for it six years ago, $6000.00, I am sure the RV dealer would have offered me that or more, but he would have lowered the price of the new one by $14000.00. Hope this helps with your decision.

X3 on TerryTown RV, Grand Rapids, Mich., Very good to deal with (Priced better than local dealers and they had the floor plan we wanted). Very thorough PDI and patient with us (me). Hope this helps!
P.S. We drove from Kansas City to purchase out TT!

X2 We live in Colorado and traveled to Cheyenne Camping Center. Saved thousands over what was available locally.

Thanks
As for the trade issue a dealer should be giving you nada no matter where you go, so buying out of state is getting to be very normal with the internet being what it is today.

So you also need to do some homework on your rv you own now before you get to talking with the other dealer, and it is getting common to do this of deal over the phone also. Just get all you ducks in a row before you call them.

Hope this helps and Happy camping

I went to Ohio for my 26rr. Suburban rv, Mansfield Ohio. Tom is great to work with has best prices also. I live in east Berlin pa. Was worth the seven hour trip. I did not do a trade in but sold mine outright. Remember if you are traveling out of state to do a trade in it's going to cost you money to get it there. I crunched numbers and priced it accordingly locally and sold it within seven days. Even with gas as cheap as it is it still is going to cost you around $500.00 to get it out of state if seven hours.
