X2 what the others said - I would definitely check out a new dealer. And, like others have said, we DO have a dealer review section...

What state are you in? If you are close or willing to drive to AL I have a great dealer I can recommend!

Document everything now so that you can present a case if he tries to pull anything or you want your deposit back.
A deals a deal and trying to pull the back end negotiations has always been a breaker for me.
I think the OP said in post #3 he got his deposit back.

I just believe this is one of those deals that just didn't work out. I'm sure he'll find a better one down the road, and probably be glad he didn't take this one.

His info under the avatar states he's in Casselberry, FL

I'd stay FAR away from that dealer. What did he expect you to do? Up your offer to the point it'd get HIS butt out of hot water and pay off the loan for all three? Or am I still in the early morning brain fog stage?

Yeah, we need a :thumbdown: icon for inside the body of messages.

RV Direct also sells Roos and Shamrocks in Florida.
i think their "stick n bricks" dealership is in Orlando.

they have some of the best Roo/Shamrock prices in the country and compete directly with RVW.

Thanks Weezer...missed that. That would be a 7+ hour drive to Anniston, AL. I just checked on the net, and they have a 2013 Roo 23IKSS in stock. Since it is a 2013 (and the 2015 models will be coming out in a few months) you might be able to diker with them on price. When we bought from them, we made initial contact via email then drove down to look (only 1.5 hrs for us ) and everything else about the sale was handled via email. When our unit was ready, we drove down, they installed the Reese, ran us through a very extensive PDI, and then we did a shakedown overnighter at the KOA that is right next door

Next morning as we were getting ready to leave, a tech came over in a golf cart to check up on us! No issues except I said I had done something wrong and had broken the connector on our Black & Grey tanks Tech said hang on and was back in 5 min with replacements, installed them and said "must have been a manufacturing defect no charge"

Yeah we love this dealer

Gosh! So sorry to hear the news. Our threads were like mirror images until this happened. That just stinks. Especially since you had to make mods to your TV.

Picked up ours this morning and everything went smoothly. This is our first RV purchase and I couldn't be happier with the way everyone at the dealer treated us. Great experience from start to finish. He has another new 23IKSS (2014) on the lot looking for a home. You said you make it up this way sometimes... hint hint.
I found that their prices were as good as the internet dealers and since they are just a half an hour away it was an easy decision.
I hope you can find another one soon. I could tell from your posts that you were all very excited for the new rig.

Well at least the TV is ready to go when you do find the right one. You will! Good luck!

So sad about the story, but there has to be a reason Karma was protecting you. Let us know when you get one!

I dunno. I would consider it a very good day. You didnt get taken by a shyster dealer. You got your money back, and you don't have to go through any of the headaches of trying to get the legalities squared away.

Had you had a cashiers check, you can bet your bippy that it would have been AFTER you took deliver and the check cleared before you found out about the title problems.

You dodged a HUGE bullet.
