2 cents... Cheyenne Camping Center was my go to while shopping. Their website is clean, easy to work around and great (large) selection of pictures. There was no doubt on the product you were looking at. just a thought for other dealers looking to "learn" from a great website.

A listing of gvwr, cargo capacity, tank sizes etc is helpful but also available at the manufacturers website. A link on your home page or on a links page to the manufacturers you sell is helpful. One dealership whose webpage I visit often even has a picture of each of the managers specials for that month on he home page. They are also listing the upcoming shows they will be at. Here is there link: Country Roads RV Center - Discount North Carolina RV Dealer for Blue Ridge, Puma, Sabre, Surveyor, Sandpiper, r-pod, Coachmen Brookstone, Palomino, Wholesale Pricing, Winston-Salem NC. I really like how their website is laid out.
I fully agree with you about the Country Roads website. They have tons of photos of every unit in stock, inside and out, with all the stats and floorplans. I live near them and bought from them after researching their site. I'm not trying to convince anyone to do business with them, but I wanted to join you in agreeing that theirs is a great example of what a dealer's website should include. Every unit has the MSRP and the actually sale price, which is also helpful.

Like others, I wouldn't particularly want to be bothered unless I am actually in the market to buy. I do definitely agree with you, though, that most folks are always wanting one a little better than the one they have. That is human nature. Those who have learned to be content with what they have are blessed indeed, but most of us don't fit into that category, lol.

Just to play devil's advocate, I can see what he's saying. It's the same idea as internet advertising. Are you impressed that the ad that pops up on your favorite page just happens to be the item you just typed in an email to your DW as a gift idea - or are you creeped out that big brother is reading your email and then trying to sell you stuff?

Tomato, tomato (boy that doesn't translate to typing).

Personally, I was quite annoyed at the Roomba ads on every page I visited - but I can see how someone would be just fine trying to sell them what they were looking for if the price was right.

But what if I got an email saying - hey - we know you want a brand new Class C with quadruple slides, solar panels and bunk beds made from the couch, and interior dump switches, and we'll trade you for your current RV plus $.

Hmmmm....I can see the attractiveness in that. But it'd probably still eek me out.

But I'd tell my wife of the email - I'd at least run it up the flagpole to see if it'll fly.

But still eeked. Happy with my new camper, but a little bit eeked.

Like lots good professional quality pictures & if have a video hate the rush through that are jumpy (leave the site fast). Like to see specific features.....& layout

Having said that I buy locally at my small dealer !!! 4 employees.... Not found a better price & love the personal service. Only looked on their internet site one time. Its is basic.... Ordered ours from them, they do not keep alot of larger trailers in stock & just 2 fivers. But sell alot of campers.........
I'm old school no smart phone mines pretty dumb. Just makes calls (thats what a phone is for)????? Don't like to be bothered unless I want to be...... Delete most email ads & do not even look at them..........

The only thing I do not like about Country Roads site they use stock photos not necessarliy the unit described.



I'm in Bassett VA, Country Roads in Lexington NC does have a very good web site, their attitude & customer servce is not the best (just my opinion.... were not very customer friendly to us but I will not get into that here). But I used their web site against them as knowing their price I got a much better deal locally (so did my son & his wife).
