I, by no means, was giving an endorsement of Camping World. It was just easy to grab a link from the CW page to show Corey what he should be looking for. CW is always higher than everyone else, but for us it is sometimes more convenient to make a 20 minute drive to CW to buy something now, rather than ordering and waiting.

I'll most likely order it after I get the camper in the first place so I can see just how awful the stock stereo is.

Much thanks!

The stereo/DVD player that came in ours was a Genesis 2.0. Based on what I have read on-line, it is not exactly the most reliable piece of equipment made. I could never get ours to play a DVD from the beginning. It won't even pull the DVD into the player, and if you shove it on in, you will need a pair of needlenose pliers to extract it. The radio part of it seems to work OK. I could have this replaced under warranty, but to be perfectly honest, I don't miss the DVD player enough to fight with the local FR dealer to get it done, and I'm not going back to Richmond, IN either. And besides, they would just give me another Genesis 2.0 that would quit working somewhere down the road. And note also, it is DVD only, not Blu Ray. When we went camping with our granddaughter last year, we just took a small DVD player with us so she could watch some of her movies.

Thanks for the heads up! I do plan on wiring my own setup, blue ray, 5.1 surround, Bluetooth audio. I'll make a DIY if mind sucks. This is the current system, I pick it up Monday!

They are listing HW296s for $22K+ in California! Yikes!
And two of you got it for $15.5? Awesome.
I can't really read the photo you posted of the quote. What does it say?

They want $17,900 in Utah. It sounds like they are charging full msrp there in Cali.

Sorry about that. It says $16,000 for the camper, total financed with tax, title, and doc fees is $15,889.63. I am putting down 10%.

like i said, the farther you are from the Midwest, the higher the price goes.

That's aggravating. Just tell them you'll drive east if they don't lower the price. You'd rather pay the money in gas then give it to a hungry dealer.
