Out-of-Town Purchase

The worst part about buying a fifth wheel from a dealer that is 100 miles from your house is the 200 mile round trip to drop the trailer off for warranty work. The second worst part is the 200 mile round trip to pick it up after the work is done.

Agree 100% Oakman. Our former dealer was 50 miles away. This didn't seem like much when we bought the trailer, but became a PITA as time wore on.

Our current dealer is only 20 miles away now. Still a PITA.
