Online buying from another state

Any preferred dealers you like vs others. Wife just fell in love with the 22RR floor plan and am investigating some online dealers. Local is just too much mark up here in Pa.
Ones I see are The outpost RV in Indiana , Specialty RV Sales in Ohio...........I know I'll get eaten alive with a trade but just checking my/her options.

Terry Town RV in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Ask for Joe Anderson. Tell him Luke sent you. +1 (616) 375-0938

All of my local dealers within 300 miles couldn't come within $3k of his price.

Outpost RV gave me a great price on a 19RR and was easy to deal with. But just before I sent them a deposit check, a 19RR showed up on Craigslist locally. Never registered, brand new for half of retail.

House of Camping, outside of Chicago, gave us a great deal and were fantastic to deal with.
so great, that we drove 4000 miles RT to get it.

FR found us local dealers that would do the warranty work. never had any issues except having to be at the back of the line. i just dropped it off for warranty work during the winter and got free storage, till i picked it up in the spring.

I would suggest that you try to sell your current RV privately rather than trading it in. As you said, you don't get much on a trade in. My experience has been that you should be able to get at least $3000 more selling it privately than you'll get on a trade.

In addition to Bikendan's recommendation, members here seem to like RV Wholesalers, Wana RV, Cheyenne Camping Center and Jeff Couch's RV Nation

Outpost in Indiana gave us the best price when we bought our new Wolf Pack a few years ago. Never a problem with warranty work either. That being said, when we went back to upgrade to a fifth wheel, they strongly discouraged taking our TT in on trade. They are nice folks to deal with on new campers, as they are very close to the factory, but do not want your trade.

We traveled to buy each of our TTs. By far the better experience was with Cheyenne Camping Center. Both trips saved us thousands over local prices. So far no warranty issues. I will admit though, it is a bit of a crap shoot. After reading some of the threads on here, I think we have been lucky.

Terry Town RV in Grand Rapids, MI is where we traded in our old TT for what we wanted and got a great deal on our new one.

They had what we wanted and were easy to deal with.

We found the best trade in value and deal on our new to us RV in Michigan and live in NJ. We traded in our TT for a Class C, I knew what make and model I wanted so I did internet searches all the time.

Trying local dealers and not having any luck; I found the one I wanted at Haylett RV in Coldwater Michigan they do extensive videos of their units on YouTube. They were super open and honest during the whole process.

Drove out 12 hours to do the trade, new unit was as represented by pictures and video; drove back 14 hours (wrong turn and traffic jam from a bad truck accident added 2 hours) the next day after spending the night in Coldwater, MI.

I would just sueggest that you get a good vibe from the dealer, and they are willing to take good pics and videos for you.
