We live in Winnipeg and are off next weekend to Minneapolis for their RV show. It's an 8 hr drive so weather will be a determining factor. Looking for new 5er and hope they have some of the models we are looking for on the floor. So far we have only been able to see most of them online. We go to the RV show in Wpg each year and if your interested in 5ers it's a waste of time! mostly bumper pulls.
We might buy in the US but the Loonie keeps dropping, down 10% in the last year. Ouch! A bit concerned about servicing as the Cdn dealers are real knobs when it come to units purchased in US. One told us outright they won't service them. Kind of short sighted in my opinion

Charli, they cannot refuse warranty work on a brand they sell, plain and simple. They may not give priority, but they cannot refuse, contact manufacturer if they give you this crap. Having said that, I would never let that sway my decision anyway, as with the $$ I save I could pay for work off warranty and still be way ahead. I did buy when $ was at about 97 cents , so definitely worth pricing out and seeing if dealer will match. Remember if you buy off the lot, then they bought the trailer at par or close, only a factory order will be more $$

Chicago does love its sport teams! Your Jets are looking much better these days. Could be all the former Hawks?

looking to buy Schultz or just 'browse'?

Charli ( 2 posts up) says they are making the drive down from Winnipeg to hit the same show.

We are at the Minneapolis RV and spent 5 hrs looking. DW had to tell me to close my mouth a couple of times cause I was drooling. Lots of great RVs to look at. Saw the Columbus 320rs that we fell in love with online. Looks just as good in person. Talked to the finance guy and we may go back tomorrow. He offered us reasonable $'s on our trade and said if we give him $200 deposit we can lock in our price and still back out anytime and get our money back. If we sell our unit in the mean time we just take it off the deal. The price was around $45k for the 320. Got a price from RV Wholesalers for a similarly equipped unit for 42,500. Given the distances involved this deal makes more sense and perhaps we can get them to come down a bit. DW loves to shop here so if we have to come here for warranty work she won't need any convincing.
Going to a dealership in the morning to look at the Mountaineer 331 and Cougar 333. The Mountaineer is close to the Columbus but a little pricier.
We'll see what tomorrow brings.
