Thanks so much. I think the trip is worth it. I've been on the phone with RVW for a year, with the same sales person. I even had a chance to visit them a few months ago. They seem legit, bare bones dealer. I guess that's how they keep their prices so low.
The other dealer, Lazydays in Tampa (4 hour drive) seems top notch, first class, camping facilities, driving/towing courses, etc. They would offer a lot of services after the sale. But I agree with most of the comments here, in the 2 years we had our HTT we only needed to see a dealer once for a small minor part that I picked up myself.
I now live in an area with only one dealer (camping world) and they do not even carry the Wildcat brand. But they carry other Forrest River products, so pretty sure they would do any warranty work if needed. So really the "local" option is not even an option. It's the choice between a 4 hr drive or a 14 hr drive to save $3500-expenses, or $2000 to have it delivered by RVW.
In the end, I've made up my mind, by the wife is not looking forward to a "mini vacation"
