Yeah, kind of a long story there. They quoted me a great price to lure me from another dealer. Right before I gave my deposit they mentioned a 1200 dollar pdi.

After going around and around they cut that to 500, which put them only a few hundred higher than the other dealer. I was exhausted, I need their help constructing my equalizer, and wanted to be done. As you can see it has been nothing but good times ever since!

Honestly I just consider the total price and don't really care how they want to break it out...even if that means itemizing a pdi.

Maybe it is good delivery day will never arrive...it promises to be a mess.

PDI charges are something that dealers use to get back money after offering a low price.
Other dealers just include it in the bottom line.
My dealer, House of Camping, never charged me separately for it, yet still gave me one of the lowest prices I ever saw for a Roo.
They even assembled and set up my Equal-i-zer for free, even though I bought it from RVW.

Yeah, I know most include it...but at the end of the day you are paying a total price and I wasn't willing to take the argument further. I felt like the final price was within a few hundred of where I wanted. It wasn't worth spending another day of driving around over a couple hundred.

Had I known the adventure that would follow....maybe I would have thought differently.

McGeorge's did that for me too and helped me get a brand new TV after taking delivery so I am pleased with them

I feel your frustration! My patients didn't last that long. After many, many months I told them to keep it. Got online and found my Roo in just a few days.

Trust me...if I didn't believe it would lead to a huge battle on my deposit I would. Another dealer close by has a 21dk similar in options in stock...in fact they have several. Same price.
