Ohio dealer questions

We are in the process of looking to purchase a class a moterhome in a year and 1/2. We have started at area dealers in western ohio lower Michigan and eastern Indiana and Cleveland rv show. 5 dealers only 2 even bothered to send a salesmen out to talk to us we want to see and walk through everthing our budget is 200000 for a new or used but having troubles finding places to go
Any other ideas of where to look in the ohio area?
Thanks

Try talking to Chris Anderson at Mount Comfort RV just east of Indianapolis if you are interested in Newmar coaches.

Avoid General RV if possible.

We bought our coach from Paul Sherry. A couple of takes. Did most of the deal remotely - telephone, email, fax etc. The good news is Mike Sherry (General Manager) is tuned in to working this way. When we visited the physical property, everything was straightforward.

Now the best news - and please pay attention. Paul Sherry's service department is run by Jake Shell. Jake and his team may be the best kept secret in Piqua, Ohio. Never 1 problem with him, always direct and on point.

You can find low prices lots of places but you will struggle to find service this good. IMO.

Try Midway RV in Grand Rapids, MI. The only problem is they are having a really good sales year at least on used. By the time that I see a used unit that is interesting it is sold.

To each his own, I guess.

General rv was one of the few that would give us the time of day. Paul Sherry said here's the rv's go out and look. Had many questions but no one to answer
Clayton. I looked at Mt comfort and they have a few newmar coaches to look at. Not sure about them but will research them

Thanks

When shopping for our RV, we'd narrowed down the candidates and we were fairly certain of the RV we wanted. What remained was the discussion between us to make certain what we thought we wanted was what was in the motorhome.

So yep - we wanted to go through the RV by ourselves. We did have questions and we got answers. We preferred the being left alone and not pestered or feeling high pressure. That is exactly what we got. We got a great price and at our pace.

This worked for us and was the preferred climate for buying. The best part of story about Paul Sherry is the service IMO and experience.

We bought from General. They were great on the sale side, but not so much on the warranty work side. Took many trips, long time, constant calls, even had to resort to a nasty post on their FB page.

As you are learning, everyone seems to have a different experience with their dealer. Some dealers are good at selling, others are good at service. Once you decide what you want coach wise, then start your shopping for dealers. User forums for the brand you are interested in are great places to find owners recommendations on which dealers do better.

Don't be afraid to buy your new MH from someone out of state - maybe even several states away. There's no real advantage to buying locally unless you have an excellent dealer on both the sales and service side.

luvlabs - spot on. Finding a solid sales and service business is rare. So the caution I'd add is find out where to get service that is convenient. I have to drive 180 miles 1 way but the service is great. Reading the forums, the biggest and most contentious point is service or lack thereof.
