Chuck, you don't say what price coach you are looking for. If you are looking at lower price coaches you will need to work through the dealer. If you are looking at high end coaches, though, you may need to work only with the factory. My coach, Foretravel, no longer has a dealer network. If you want a Foretravel you will buy it directly from the factory in Nacogdoches, TX. The exception is the Realm, which is only sold by Motorhomes Specialists. I believe Newell is also a factory-only company.
