Well here you are, Our recently acquired TT.
There is a story behind this purchase that will sound both unbelievable but also crazy however I assure you it's 100% truth and proves if your persistent you will prevail.
So last year my wife and I go out looking at Travel trailers...We must of looked at 100 with my wife only really liking 2 or 3 of the floor plans. It was a very frustrating time for me because she is VERY indecisive and I just wanted to buy something already.
We stumbled upon a new 2011 Holiday Rambler Mintaro 32RLS at a local new RV dealership.... My wife fell in love with the twin slides in the living room so we inquired on purchasing it that day. The dealer said the price on the unit was $21,299 with an MSRP of $29,677, But he couldn't sell it right away because it was going to the big RV supershow at the fairgrounds later that afternoon. (It was the only one he had of that model) He went on to tell us we could go over to the fairgrounds that weekend and buy it from there.
So the next day we headed over to the fairgrounds, 60 miles away. We walked around looking at all the different models and floor plans not finding anything else she liked so we went back to the Holiday Rambler and begun the purchase paperwork. Now the price has jumped to $27,500 at this "So-Called fair grounds SALE" I got angry at the jump in price over what the dealer told me just one day earlier on his lot so we leave. He tells me he'll call me if it doesnt sell at the "Sale"
Three days later (Wednesday) a salesman from the dealer calls me at work to let me know that the unit didn't sell at the sale and is now back on the lot here locally. I explained to him that I am not very happy with the price increase at the sale and he told me that they have to do that to recoup their costs for participating in the big RV fair ground sales...
Regardless it isn't good business in my opinion.
He tells me they will let me have it for 19,900 if I still want it. So the following Saturday my wife and I went over to buy it.... We get there and find out they sold it yesterday, Friday.
By now, we're over this TT purchase and ready to just move on.
So fast forward a year and I'm looking through the RV trader when what do I see..... The same exact TT we tried/wanted to buy one year ago. I was able to verify the VIN from the Buyers order still in my email from a year earlier....
I'm thinking....Now how Ironic is this.
The people that purchased it on that Friday, 11 months ago, traded it in to the RV Dealership right next door to where they bought it from. I was able to talk to the people and they confirmed they only used it 4 times for a total of 9 days..... It is still pretty much brand new.
So I now have the TT we wanted so bad 11 months ago.... It's crazy how things work out but the best part of all..... It's absolutely crazy what just a year does..... I just bought it for $13,000!!!!! 11 months ago it was $20,000.
