Lazy Days: Are they a good dealer?

Looking to buy within the next month. I'm willing to go to any dealer in the U.S. that will give me a fair deal and stand behind the product.

Is Lazy Days a good dealer to work with given I'm a 10 hour drive away?

I bought one from the Fl dealership about 7 years back and was really pleased with the deal and treatment

Haven't bought there but all the employees I've talked to were polite and professional.

They do something right as they have 283 (two hundred eighty three) service bays. Huge selection, like a BIG RV show.

I bought my fleetwood bounder from them in 2008.You do not have to leave until everything is fixed and repaired to your satisfaction. My wife drove them crazy but they were great.Will check them out next time I needs Motorhome and I had to drive 25 hours.

Just drove from northern PA to trade our 2009 Winnebago for a 2012 Anthem. Great experience, VERY professional.

I came SO close to buying my Phaeton from them. Everyone I dealt with was really pleasant and easy to work with. I've heard many great things about their service as well.

We were there today looking at a new one. Didn't end up buying. But they are very impressive with the story they tell about the company. And yes, they have a large selection.

Be sure you talk to some other dealers before making the drive. They run their sales department in a way that they will make as much margin off each unit as possible.

Never bought there before, but will definitely allow them to be a player in our choice.

We are from Indiana but ordered ours from Lazy Days Florida. They gave us the best price, glad they did. We flew down to get it on Dec. third. Stayed a full week in there post delivery lot for free as we learned about all the systems and took the drivers course. They also installed the Blue Ox tow package and SMI brake system on our toad. Did a great job. We will use them for service if we are any where near Tampa when needed.

No, no and no again.

We bought our RV new from them, and if they was the only RV dealer in the world, we would give up RVing.

Once you have partet with your money, they couldn't care less about you or any of the many promises they made when making the sale.

You need to check out Motorhome Specialists in Texas. Their prices are a minimum 25% off of MSRP and have an incredible selection. They are the largest single location RV dealer in the world. Also, for used RV's check out PPL in the Houston area. Very good prices on consigned units.

I bought my coach from them almost 3 years ago and would buy from them again. They were very professional and informative and made sure that I was satisfied before leaving their lot.
I bought from Diane and "General" was very helpful in explaining the workings of my coach since he had one like it.
