When I was looking for our 21SS, I started online and got quotes from a number of dealers in Indiana where I thought they might be cheaper. When I called and talked to them about their quote, they all said it a basic unit without any options. Told them what options I wanted and the price went up of course. I checked with a local dealer and a price over the phone that was the sale price. Then went into the store and talked to them and the price dropped by $1000 and got a good deal on WDH with free installation. Comparing the out of state prices and my local dealers, it was not enough difference to make me drive to Indiana.
Another thing is your warranty repairs that you may need. It not like buying a car that you can take to any dealer and get repaired. Your local dealer may repair it, but you will be on the bottom of the list to do the work and you could be without your camper for weeks! I bought my 2016 21SS last December when they were not selling many campers and he stored it for me until I picked it up this spring. I did have 2 warranty issues that he fixed right away when I took it in to the dealer and took it home the same day!
