I called a RV dealer in Raleigh asking about the price of a sliding tray for the storage area on my fiver. I found out the brand he sells got them. After he told me he ask about my Arctic Fox. In the conversation I told him it was about all the weight I could carry with my truck. His next words were I got a new 37 ft. with four slides. Way way over what I my weight limit of my truck.

Sad.......

But soooooo true. THe ones who will tell you ANYTHING to get a sale make it hard for the ones who try to be honest and keep folks within the tow vehicles rates...

So true, too many of them operate on the principle that there is an endless supply of new suckers.

I worked in sales quite a few years ago, selling cars. I got out of it because most dealerships force their sales people to do what this thread is all about. I couldn't work that way and sleep at night, much less sit in church on Sunday. I'm sure RV sales organizations operate the same way. The problem is, the sales people who stick with it learn to like it.

But not all are like that. The dealer I go to always asks, what are you using to tow with. That is why I stick with him and have purchased 5 trailers thru his dealership.

Kstar,
You're absolutely right in saying they're not all like that. I should have made the same statement in my previous post. When you find one of the good ones, stick with them!

You are right and there are a few good dealers with good sales paople, but they few and far between. When I encounter a pushey and dumb sales person, I leave. He is generally representing the attitude of the dealership management.

I have worked in a highly technical sales position for about 25 years now and it is amazing at the lack of knowledge of some of my competitors.
