I purchased my last TT, a 2018 Palomino Puma 31BHSS, from RVW, in April 2018, in the exact manner described. Yes, in my experience, the discount is legit. Not only did they find a better loan rate than anyone I could find, but they passed a huge savings on to me. I made the 8hr drive to Ohio to purchase, because I was able to save over $6K from what local dealers were going to charge. I negotiated my whole deal over the phone and through emails, and they had the trailer set up exactly how I wanted on my scheduled pick up date. I have had nothing but great service from them before, during, and after the sale and I will definitely start with them the next time I’m ready for a new camper.

p.s. I also negotiated with Wana RV, because they have very competitive pricing as well. In my case RVW was willing to undercut a deal I had negotiated with WRV to get my business.

Not a bunch of how the take the dealer for a ride nonsense, but basic business principles to level the playing field for the buyer. There is a lot of established business practices that are employed to move the buyer's focus without them realizing it. And surprisingly, the "high - Low" negotiating game commonly works against the buyer. Even the discount for financing thru the dealer, the customer almost always ends on with the short end of the stick.

As good of a buyer as one thinks they are, they probably can learn one heck of a lot from these videos. Salesmen and dealerships, generally, are not sleaze mongers. They just have established tactics they employ to move the buyer off balance and maximize their profit margin. It is just business. These videos just help level the playing field a little. Good for newbies or seasoned RV'ers.

I don't get any cut for recommending this. I plunked down the $97 for the course and I am so glad I did. One of the best expenditures I have made in a while. I even find myself going back and reviewing different lessons in the series. Good learning for buying any high ticket item, not just RV's.
I woulda got that course for $77
