The dealer wants me to take ownership to avoid a fee for having unsold units on the lot. I have read here that I pretty much lose my power once I pay but I can see his issue as well. Thoughts? BTW I did download the PDI checklist and am using it as a guide.
I'm with Roovader, I would want to see the water system and everything else operate or I am not buying anything. All you need to do is search this and other boards for plumbing issues from the factory on new trailers and how they are found "at the campground". Make them fill the freshwater until it is overflowing out the fill and vent, fill the gray tank until it backs up into the shower base and the black until it backs up in the toilet above floor level. Then check for leaks. They are supposed to test all of that prior to your PDI as none of it is tested at the factory. Do you trust them?
Is the dealer telling you he would not re-winterize it for you which would cost him about $25 to do or less? What would they have done if you were taking delivery in January? To me that's like buying a new truck and it runs out of gas before you get off the lot
I don't know what is up with an "unsold unit fee"? I have never heard of that before? Is that what he is calling his interest on a floored unit?
