Up here in Manitoba, when we bought our Flagstaff two years ago, the local dealers wouldn't even come close. I offered them $2000 more than my 'all-in' cost of picking it up in Minneapolis, and they refused.

I wanted desperately to buy local, but I wasn't going to pay them an extra $4000 for nothing. And my 2-year warranty is almost up, and I seriously doubt I will use it, so I made the right choice.

But I went to the RV show this spring, and they had signs up everywhere about buying local, and their prices were quite competitive. I guess they finally realised that being stupid and greedy wasn't working.

If I was buying today, I would give them a second chance.

I tried to buy local also. They all said good luck getting warranty. One dealership was rude and couldn't believe I wasn't going to pay them all the extra money to buy local. Why is it a crime to try save money. It shows u how much money they are making on the price of a trailer. I don't feel sorry for them.

We purchased our Sabre 31RKDS in 2010 by way of internet from Cheyenne Camping Center. We saved $$$ even after paying for delivery from Iowa to our front door in New Mexico. It is a hassle to get warranty work form local Forest River Dealer, they will fix problems but slowly. Good thing our fifth wheel did not need major fixes. Also Cheyenne was more than willing to send me replacement parts for me to install which I had no problem with that. It is still worth the savings. Would do it again which we are looking at a Columbus 320RS.

We had bought a Keystone Cougar High Country Last July 11th..We got our "best Price " from a dealer 250 miles away.. A dealer 50 miles away (saleslady ) said our unit would be the last in line for other rigs brought in for work purchased at their dealership !! I called KEYSTONE..They said to call General RV in MT.Clemens Michigan..25 miles away..And they have been doing a wonderful job ..Sorry that they (General RV) didnt have our Exact model of 5th wheel to begin with ...
