looking at "rvtrader.com", the price appears to be a fair price. BUT the way this dealer has done you, i would at least have it checked out from nose to tail by someone other than them.

Hey Everyone!


I was busy all weekend and this week with last minute training. =/

Good news is we finalized the total price of 52,500 out the door 57,900. Tomorrow I am meeting with a RV Mechanic who is going to do his own inspection and let me know if he finds anything. It turns out that the dealer manager is nice, it was the finance guy who was trying to rip us off. Its weird because this dealership has been around for over 60+ years....I personally think there are a few bad apples in the bunch! =/

Thank you all for the advice! You all have made it easier for myself to sleep knowing that I am being set up for success, all thanks to you all!

"it was the finance guy who was trying to rip us off"...hey no harm, no foul....he was just doing what he is paid to do....maximize profits for his employer.....and you stopped him...good lesson for all.

And the manager or owner of the dealership supervises them, and sets the "tone" for the entire dealership. If the integrity of one segment is questionable, the integrity of the entire dealership is questionable IMHO.

Gap insurance if priced right makes sense if you finance and can't afford to pay the difference between insurance claim and note value. But then again, never finance a depreciating asset.
