Take a good look at "your" camper when the dealer gets it back.
If it passes a thorough inspection/walk thru TAKE IT!!!
The one -that's supposed to come later from the factory- might not OR it might have different options or flaws.
Or it might not show up for weeks!!
Unless you've got buyers remorse and changed your mind I vote to take the one you bought in the first place!
Be careful Dan, you are about to be overcome by common sense. Where is your killer instinct and righteous indignation?

Look at it from the other guys view. They were ahead if you. They got the correct camper in thier mind but dealer did paperwork wrong. If i was other owner i would make dealer fix paperwork and I would keep the camper they first gave me.
Besides i already made mods and packed that camper by now.

This is what I was thinking as I read the thread. What about the other guy who now has to give up the camper he just got. Even if he hasn't done anything or loaded anything in it, he walks out each day, beams with pride and thoughts of just when he can get out and use it etc...

All this sue happy crap is really depressing. At least there's a few reasonable people here, like Ky Dan and others, that can recognize an honest mistake and not call their lawyer on speed dial and demand compensation.

These things are towed from factory to dealer, so what is another 250 miles? Nothing. It's not registered, so it hasn't lost value yet. It will w hen it is registered, just like every other RV in existence.



Me, I would probably wait for the next one. Since you didn't do an inspection on this one, you don't know what the deal is. And this way the new owner maybe can keep this, dealer registers it, and everyone's at least content.


Happiness is getting what you want, content is happy with what you have or get. Sometimes being content is just fine.

Be glad they caught it, and be glad they are giving you options.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
You will be judged the same way you judge others.


I’ve never heard such ridiculous suggestions in my life as some I’ve read on here- particularly the ones about getting lawyers involved. Must be a sad way to live always looking to be compensated for every perceived wrong that happens to you. To the OP- give grace to the dealer and thank him for owning the mistake and being honest. Ask them to reach out to the other owners and thank them for taking care of your camper for you. Check it out thoroughly and let the dealer correct any issues you find. Then go camping and enjoy your new trailer. I can promise you this route will be less stressful and by far more rewarding than getting some ridiculous demands met.

Mistakes are made. Those that make them don't always have to be held accountable/rectified by lawsuits.

Agree. Why try to put the screws to someone who made an honest mistake? We all make them at some point.

I love the way some on this , as well as other forums, automatically go to the most extreme response to what may well be a minor problem. "Get a lawyer!" "Demand something unreasonable!" "I would demand_________fill in the blank"


Fortunately cooler heads prevail. Good luck with whichever camper you get, enjoy the tripand leave the stress at home.

Bruce
The dealer should have their own notary on staff. The only time you would have to leave the dealer and go to a public notary is if you purchased the trailer out of state.

The dealer caused inconvenience to more than one customer because of their negligence. They should offer compensation to those customers because of it. Like a $100-$200 generic Visa gift card. That isn't going to put the dealer out of business, it's going to make for happy customers, and the dealer is going to write it off on taxes anyway. Its just plain the right thing for the dealer to offer to do.

The dealer is 100% legally obligated to correct the mistake. There was no chivalry involved in their coming clean about it.

Why put down other people’s answers? The final sentence in post #1 was “What would you do?” Some people say forget about it. Some would ask for compensation. Some say get a lawyer. There is no wrong answer. People are just saying what they would do. That was the question, wasn’t it?

Because it's the new American way. From dawn to dark our TV's blare how if we were "wronged" in any way we "may be eligible for substantial compensation".

Lawyers push this with millions of dollars in TV ads so the idea of suing for anything has become commonplace.

But it is a trailer not a truck. No comparison there....... apples and oranges.......


But to answer your question yes I would still take it I put 500 miles on my truck in less than a week. No big deal.

Just inspect and get anything fixed. 250 or 500 miles is nothing. Our “new” 5th wheel was towed from Forest River in Shipshewana IN to Ocala Fl. That is over 1000 miles. There are no odometers on travel trailers so when you go to sell it it does not matter how many “miles” are on it at all...

Get it ready to camp... good weather is coming...

X2... mine was dragged 1000+ miles from Elkhart County, IN to Valley View, Texas -- and not very gently, I presume!

This is a mistake, not negligence. No one got physically hurt. Inconvenience is not negligence.

They got the wrong trailer. The correct trailer was written up, but the wrong trailer was pulled and prepped and sent home with the buyers.

I've never heard of going to a notary when purchasing a vehicle or RV. And I've bought a lot of vehicles over the years. And a bunch of trailers.

Transposition of numbers is a common human error.
