Nobody pays MSRP, (unless they see you coming). It seems like dealers can establish what they want. It is the bottom line price that matters. We had a great experience and saved a pile of dough buying from RV Nation in Ohio, and traveled 1300 miles round trip to pick it up.

We did the same with RV Direct. Dealt with them by internet, they are in Albany NY we are in Texas. Took delivery in Orlando FL, 1200 mi one way from Texas. Stayed in FL close to three weeks camping from Orlando to the the Keys, camped all the way back to Texas. Turned our delivery into a 5 week camping trip. Would do it again and would buy from them again.

I bought from rvw a year ago. Would do it again too. But depending on your location, Cheyenne camper sales in Iowa has a similar or better price and seems better to deal with to me. I wasn't able to buy from them at the time, but will definitely give them a shot for the next one.

I bought from RVW. Pick it up next week. I shopped all over the net. I ordered one that had more options than the ones on the net and they still beat other prices. Haven't received it yet but I've talked to them several times and they are real helpful. I have also bought some things from their online store and their prices seem real good. Ordered Monday and got it Thursday.

Bought my QBOK from RVW and had delivered in NOV. Saved $12k vs local dealer. Decent experience with them. Had some issue/confusion early in process. D. Durnell of RVW dealt with quickly and rectified, would buy from again if price is right!

I have not bought from RVW, but would based on most of the positive stories I've heard and Dave Durnell's presence on FRF helping their customers who posted problems.

That is, I would buy from them if the savings were significant enough to warrant giving up my local dealer, who has very good service. When I bought our current camper, RVW was only (very) slightly better than my local dealer so I couldn't justify buying remotely to save a couple of hundred $'s.

He said that he had never been beat by price by anybody west of the Mississippi. I said " well now you have and by about $1500" then he tryed arguing with me about it ? Ok, whatever, I know how math works. That really tee'd me off.

I think others have had good experiences, but mine wasn't the best.

I had a similar experience...they were $2000 - $2500 more than the 2 local dealer quotes that I got. In addition the guy called me constantly and even several times after I told him he was higher.

Just bought from RVW last week. Their price on a 2015 Sabre 33RETS was $5k cheaper than my local dealer who had a 2014. The local dealer's MSRP was only $3k higher than RVW. When I told the local sales manager the RVW price, he told me to buy it and that he couldn't even get remotely close. We'll see how they do with prep when I pick it up next month on our way to Alaska.

We bought our Rockwood from RVW, saving us $14k from what the local dealer was asking for the same unit. We had ours delivered, 2000 miles. The experience was great. Zero problems with the trailer so far.
