We "purchased" our 2014 Sandpiper April of 2013 from a dealer in the Corpus Christi area of Texas. We got very good price and were happy with that. Now having said that, the pdi was less than sparkling and we basically read all the manuals after and took notes during the pdi. On our shakedown we were lucky to be parked by very nice folks that gave us some good direction on several items.
During the one year (we were not offered the 2nd year, nor did we we know about FROG) warranty a few items needed to be addressed.
We were not pleased with the work nor the attitude of the service people and have had furthur work done at the international rally in Goshen by the factory techs and Sandpiper factory folks who absolutely know their business IMO.
I would be reluctant to take anything to our purchasing dealer unless it was at the point of a gun.
As far as Fun Town and their locations, my contacts at FR have told me corporate puts up with FT and their shenanigans because they order alot of iron from them and periodically send techs from Indiana to Texas to train their folks for various reasons.
