That was not my experience in shopping for DP's at all. Perhaps it's the price point or luck, but if you buy a few year old unit from the original owner that paid $300K+, don't be surprised if it is like new!
I narrowed in on a specific model/floorplan by shopping around. My early shopping (online and in person) was not geared towards purchase, more a research exercise. Once I found exactly what I wanted it was GAME ON. I would consider a coach that met my criteria from anywhere in NA. BTW, I found when talking to dealers far away, once they learned I was going to have to travel great distances they seemed very honest in their disclosures.
I bought private party and it was awesome. Great price, great rig.
