You're an idiot and your wife is right, however we must be twins as I think just like you. Sooo tempting to buy now but I don't see any point that you can make to not waiting (other than you're impulsive, don't want to wait, and want it now just like me!). LOL. Good luck with your decision.

just got my last 1099R I needed to finish our taxes. We owe $2,000 less than I had planned. I told my wife that would cover any extra cost of buying a camper now vs. later. She was unconvinced.

Only reason for getting it 'now' vs. waiting, would be if both of you had decided it was the 'perfect' unit for you, AND availability / scarcity was an issue. Or your current home was uninhabitable (fire, weather, etc.)

If that's not the case... let the wife have this one, and save yourself a lot of hassle, as the others have described.

Since you're moving where they're cheaper (on average), don't need it as a temporary domicile, plus you'll be closer for any potential major service issues... it just makes sense to wait.

Buying something you can't use right now anyway satisfies nothing but your lust for acquisition. That's easy enough to overcome for now, given the good advice by all on this thread.

Usually I wear the pants in my family, but in this case I say listen to wife (not going to say wife is RIGHT, because that would technically make you an idiot, lol). Dealing with the trailer in the middle of move is not good. Stressful enough moving without complicating things. The trailer will be available to you when you get to OH. Plus, price might be lower then.

Remember, you may wear the pants in the family but she controls the zipper !

Why would you want to loose 4 months of warranty coverage while it's in storage? It's bad enough when the shop has it for months. Wait..save on shipping fees and the hassle of getting it to you new location.

I know what's going on here. He knows (I hope) that the move is going to be a nice chunk of change, there's always all kinds of crap you need to buy after you move into a new place. He knows that trailer money is not going to be as available after the move!!!

Listen to your wife. She's trying to keep you from making a mistake. In this scenario she has the advantage, because she'll never let you forget it!

Just going with your post's title, I'd say your DW knows you best.

Iím with Kris here and my thought process too.... Save yourself a ton of stress and time and youíll never have to worry about the ďI told you soísĒ which will assuredly last for the life of the RV

Like others have mentioned, youíre likely to get just as good or better a deal in Ohio and these trailers are built in Indiana so I wold assume youíd get a screaming deal at a dealer close to the factory.

Unless you have an address in Ohio, it would be wise to wait. Aside from the objections you have already mentioned, here is another one. Taxes and plates.

On retirement, we were making a move from Illinois to Florida. DW wanted a new car for a short time before the move. We got our best deal in Wisconsin. When purchasing, we registered the car in Florida, got Florida license plates, and payed Florida sales taxes, all through the Wisconsin dealer. The Florida plates were mailed to Illinois. We trailered the car behind the rental truck. The car hauler was the only added expense and we had it to use immediately after returning the rental truck in Florida.

In your instance, it appears you would be paying taxes and registration in TX, the hassle of getting it to Ohio, then paying taxes and registration again in Ohio. You must also consider that the TT has already been towed from the mid west, sat in the Texas sun and then transported back north before you ever use it.

After over 50 years of marriage, DW and I have come to a common conclusion. For every deal we miss/pass, there is another and another. Patience is a virtue.

Here’s a principle my wife and I learned to live by after too many situations like yours: NEVER make a major decision unless you both agree. Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together except they be agreed?”

Buy now or wait?

I would contact Wana RV in Shipshewana In. They Are located about 15 miles from the manufacturing facilities, plus, when I purchased my TT from them they were very reasonably priced. I live in So Ca and the rig I purchased from Wana RV was 10k less than same unit here. Just my 2 cents worth.

Wait for love

We love our 2109S, but I agree with the people who say wait. You'll find one in OH and probably for a better price. You might even find a model you like better. Read the reviews. The sofa is not comfortable for sitting if that's something you do a lot.

The only benefit to buying in Texas is the RV lemon Law. If you buy and register your RV in Texas itís fully covered by the lemon law just like a vehicle. But the chances are that you wonít buy a lemon and it makes more sense to wait until you are in Ohio for the reasons outlined above.

I am in agreement. WAIT. Not only will Ohio offer you a better deal, I assume that you will be nearer the manufacture. Storage and traveling hassles would just add to your expenses.
