General ?????

I just back from a trip out west, Idaho "class reunion" and I didn't take my new TT, but was think how does Forest River gets all this units to the Dealership, I did c a couple of units hook up to TV with signs on them saying in transit. I can't believe they're all like this, that would b a lot of mile on the tires, just wondering.

That's a good question - sort of like why is the sky blue...

I've heard that some are towed out on their own wheels and some get shipped out on a flatbed. Our dealer (west coast of Canada) said it costs $4K to get each unit shipped from the plants in the eastern US to the West Coast.

I have never seen a trailer being shipped, but perhaps some being towed by pickups out there are actually in transit??

Good thing that it would cost waay too much to ship an RV from Asia otherwise the Chinese would have flooded the market by now.
