Why buy from your nearest dealer?
We believe strongly in fair competition and that people have the right to purchase an RV anywhere they wish. Many RV buyers are tempted to
shop far and wide for the lowest possible price often traveling hundreds if not thousands of miles to save a couple thousand dollars.
While this may seem like a good idea, our experience shows that you should buy from one of the dealers closest to you.
The dealer is the front line in delivering training, support and service to you - both before, and more importantly, after the sale. A good
relationship with your servicing dealer is an essential part of a good RV experience.
Many RV dealers cannot find enough qualified service technicians to meet the growing demand for RV service that has resulted from the fast
growing popularity of RVs. This is especially true when seasonal spring demand stretches their service capacity, both staff and facilities,
to their limits. As a result, many RV dealers give priority to customers who purchased their RV from them over local customers who purchased
elsewhere. (Most RV dealers treat “in transit” [traveling] customers differently, realizing that they’re in need of prompt service while on
vacation and they’re not a “local” customer who bought elsewhere.)
It costs money to provide a well-equipped service facility staffed by properly trained technicians. While your nearest dealers need to offer
competitive pricing, they may not be able to sell for as low as the far away dealers who realize that you will not be returning for service
and thereby putting demands on their service capacity. The far away dealers may be looking at the profit on your sale as “found money” and
therefore selling it for less than they would to a local customer.
Keep this is mind when it comes to the time to buy your next RV - the sweetness of low price is well outweighed by the bitterness of poor service.
