I am in the early stages of shopping for a new Class A. I have visited 2 separate shops of the same dealer and found VERY different experiences. One salesman couldn't even tell the different models apart, which I could see from just having looked at them online. I have found this website: www.rvpricebusters.com.
They do quotes via e-mail and the prices are at least 25% below MSRP. (Including delivery to my door and a 7yr bumper to bumper exclusionary extended warranty!)I'm not sure if the local dealer can or will match that price.

Has anyone bought via the internet or from out of state? Have you tried to get service at a local dealer? I wonder how gracious their service would be if I did not by the coach from them. As always, I appreciate the wealth of information and generous opinions offerred by all...

I have bought 2 dps in the past 2 yrs off ebay ads. I personally inspected the vehicle before payment was made..they were both as advertised! Dealer service is no problem when needed, although I much prefer NON dealer service when possible...go for it..just be sure of what you are buying

I have owned 3 Holiday Rambler Motor Homes and got them from 3 different dealers in 3 different states (Florida, New York and Georgia). I price shopped. I live in Florida. We have had no problems getting service from other dealers. The only down fall I can see by crossing state lines to buy a new MH would be a hassle if you had to deal with a lemon law across state lines. ( You would have to hire an atty in the state you got the motor home from etc.) But I don't think all states have lemon laws for MHs. Your engine is usually warranted by the engine mfg, and not the MH mfg, so this should not be a problem area. My advice would be to price shop. But keep in mind, you will have to take the MH back for warranty work, so pick a MH that has a lot of dealers or one close by. Holiday Rambler
(Monaco) has a repair facility in Wildwood Florida that fixes all Monaco products regardless of where you got the rig (and does a good job). s/Toby

Toby - Thanks for the tips- I happen to be looking at a Monaco Knight as one of the possible choices. The salesman and their promotional literature (and what I read on the forums) seems to state that they have excellent customer service!

Footdoc- "Sugar Gliders" - Awesome! - I was SO close to getting a pair, but my wife doesn't like small animals.

Contact Bretz(Rick) RV by telephone or internet and they will order your Monaco(most likely below the 25%).
