I visited MHS when I bought my previously owned Damon Outlaw in TX (but bought at another dealer that I do not recommend).
My opinion is their business model is the future of MH sales. They move inventory in high volume, so they can offer more inventory and better prices than many other dealers...BUT you still have to make a good deal on your own.
A local (to you) dealer would usually be your service center, but that is not required and you will seek out a Factory Authorized Service Center that you like for Warrantee issues.
If you are planning to buy in TX and bring the NEW rig DIRECTLY to Cali, you should research the details about what the DMV will say about that...the coach must have a 50 State SMOG Certification (even Diesels!) See: Before Buying a Vehicle From Out of State - Be Sure You Can Register It in California FFVR 29
If all checks out, the dealer can issue a 90 day temporary Texas registration for your trip home...then BE READY for the Cali DMV to collect SALES and USE TAX!!!! Moon Unit Brown (our Esteemed Gov.) will get you
As far as picking the model that is best for you...you gotta do the picking. Try to see the model you like in-person. Everyone is different and that's why there are so many models and styles out there. Take your time and find the coach that YOU like the best!
Best of luck
P.S. Gas rigs are cheaper at purchase...and now much cheaper for operating cost too - have you seen the price of Diesel lately? But a gas engine will be expected to last about 25%-50% less miles before major service.
