They are good people. I bought my second trailer from them. Awesome experience. PDI was not rushed.

The only reason I did not go back for our third is he did not carry Pumas.

My brother bought his RV from Wana. Found very few issues during PDI.

this is an excellent point. We purchased a 2020 Cedar Creek out of state with all the options we wanted and at a price we were comfortable with. Once there we found out some of the "factory standard items" were missing. Found out they changed the 2020 configuration mid-model year. We still purchased the rv even though one of the items was the second a/c unit. Happy with the fantastic fan in the bedroom which also gives us more light. We try not to camp anywhere where a second a/c is needed...if that hot we'll stay home.

Can someone advise me to a reliable and helpful RV dealer?
Thanks.
We need to ask where are you, Im in western NY (Buffalo area). The last time I purchased a new unit I actually drove to a smaller dealer in Rochester just over an hour away. I dealt with a couple of the local dealers, the last unit before this was nothing but a nightmare, the dealership had internal fighting going on over the lemon of a unit I had purchased from them.

At this time with the world of sites like this and the internet you can get some pretty good information about the dealers themselves, I was told on this forum that every camper will have something wrong with it, its what the dealer does for you that makes the purchase and any flaws manageable. READ, READ your warranty and have a full understanding with your dealer before you sign anything. When picking the unit up DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT take ownership until it is 100%, this puts pressure on them because they want the units gone as soon as they get them, if you take it with issue you will get the run around.

I'm apprehensive about these online, deliver to your door dealers, not that they don't give you a great price it just makes getting warranty work done trickier and adds another level of BS.

Service departments are often booked months in advance so warranty service will take that long regardless where you buy. My advice is a ruthless pre-delivery inspection and be prepared to DIY anything discovered later. If you need a plumber to stop a toilet from running or change a faucet at home you're not gonna be happy with a camper or so-called warranty service. These require preventive maintenance well in excess of what your house needs.

When looking at campers at "local dealers" check the build date on the data plate on the left side. You may be surprised to find some built two years ago and still unsold. Just saying. The big "wholesalers" don't seem to have any more than a month old as their inventory turns over so quickly or in some cases, like mine, the trailer was delivered to me days after it was picked up at the factory.

I bought my trailer there a few years ago. Their internet prices are legit. Put the down payment in with pickup scheduled for 3 weeks later. They were busy going to RV shows so it would take awhile to prep, etc. When I showed to pick it up they said they dropped the price $1k at the latest show and I was entitled to that price. Can't get much better than that. Have never had a reason to take the trailer in for repairs so can't comment on service.
We bought our 2021 16FQ at Willow Street location last June;do agree that their internet pricing is very competitive and honored. They also update their website frequently so units are marked sold if so but always best to call(they do return calls/txt) ahead to check availability.

I was going through the same thing looking for a 2608. Ended up finding a dealer with a good price and ordered one with all of the options I was looking for. Put the down payment down over the phone and should be ready late April or early May. Time will tell
