Buying over the internet from dealers in Indiana? Good or bad?

I have found a couple dealers in Indianna that have the best prices by $15,000- $20,000 cheaper. Has anyone done this ? Did you fly in for the inspection (PDI) or just take a chance that they did the inspection and corrected any issues? Thanks for the help

We custom ordered from Tiara Sales in Elkhart (Deb) and got along great. We drove to pick it up and stayed in there yard for a few days and checked everything out. We were very pleased.

I bought from:

Durnell's RV Wholesalers
(877)877-4494 X190
Fax: (937)843-9300
The Original RV Wholesalers - RV Sales, RV Parts, RV Dealer, RV Super Store Dealer, 5th Wheel, Forest River

The first time I saw my trailer was when they delivered it.

The driver that delivered my trailer showed me work the slides. I have figured everything else out by reading the manuals or studying on the internet. I had 2 warranty issues in my 1 year warranty period. A leaking fresh water tank and a CO2 sensor. My dealer helped me get warranty replacement on the tank done locally. The CO2 sensor was replaced by the sensor manufacturer. My trailer is a Forest River. Forest River takes responsibility for the parts of the RV that they put together. Everything else is covered by the company that sold the part to Forest River (tires, chassis, suspension, stove, etc.).

Since my warranty expired, I have had a tire blowout and dealt with the Canadian distributor of the tire. I currently have a issue with the suspension and am working with Lippert (who sold the chassis to Forest River).

A neighbor bought an RV in Indiana and took delivery there. The unit turned out to be a major lemon with unfixable structural issues.

Turned out the Lemon Laws in Indiana are very protective of the RV industry and he had no success there. Finally the factory stepped up and gave him his money back.

His lawyer had some previous experiences with Indiana Lemon Law and advised him to never buy an RV there. He said if you take delivery in another state, that state's laws would apply. I haven't verified that.

I would at least pay a guy to do a private inspection. And make sure the report with the findings is worth any repairs. I bought one that was 30k below market...found later the slide leaked had to rebuild the entire slide, and floor.
