we saved over $4000, even after trip costs on a trailer with a similar MSRP.
we paid $14,500 for a brand new Roo 23SS.
the cheapest we could find out here, for the same trailer, was over $19k.

I did not know that they inflated prices out here. We are new to the game and did not have much to compare to. Just freight alone on the invoice was over $1000. That seems steep.

If any of you are planning on coming into Canada with your RV, just for your information, formaldehyde in your black water tank treatment is a no-no.

Western dealers like to make a profit on the shipping costs, along with profit on the trailers' costs.

You will always get the best deal from a high volume dealer that is close to the Goshen - Elkhart area of Indiana, since that is where a large number of fivers, TT's, and pups are made.

Alright I know I'm switching topics but can anyone get me the link to this shower that's awesome? I'm going to order it. Hopefully the install isn't too terribly bad.

I found mine cheaper, but we have the brushed nickel finish. The install is less than fifteen minutes.
