Hello everyone

Hello everyone,
My name is Roger I just wanted to say hello to the community and thank you guys answering so many of my questions. Although I never posted a question I did search quite a few topics and found many good answers on this forum. My wife and I just returned home from Vermont Towing our brand new Rockwood 2205s. We are complete newbies to camping and travel trailers. We actually put deposits on two other trailers before settling on this one. We were hoping to stay local because of warranties. We put a deposit on a 22 FbS Flagstaff at a dealership about 14 miles away from my home. Then we found one in Pennsylvania (Keystone) which was $4,000 cheaper but somewhere between 7 and 8 hour Drive. On this forum we discovered that the Rockwood 2205 s was basically the same trailer as the Flagstaff 22fbs. We searched and found one under four hours away. Country Camper of East Montpelier was very competitive and slightly beat Keystone's price. For us it was a no-brainer less then a four hour drive. And saved over $4,000. One good thing to report both of the other dealerships refunded our deposits just as they said they would with no questions asked.

Sounds like you did your research and it paid off. $4,000 will pay for a lot of campsites.
Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forum.

Thank you. Once I realized the cost of sales taxes and everything else I still had to purchase besides the trailer itself I had to go back to the drawing board and find a better deal.

Thanks. I tried to negotiate something more local. The salesman and dealership in RI seemed like really good people but they were not able to even come close. Since I plan on traveling all over the country Vermont didn't seem so far.
