Buyer Beware

Posted 05-24-2012 at 11:01 PM by bgc44a

A few months ago, my wife and I decided that we needed to step up to a class A motorhome, from the 25' Class C that we have owned and enjoyed for the past 12 years. We decided that it would have to have full air ride, and a diesel pusher. Because of the mountain passes and the National park roads, we need one that was a maximum of 34' in length. About a month ago we were talked into buying a used Class A Gulf Stream from Albany RV, Albany NY. The salesman told us it was a 36' unit, but after all that was only a couple of feet over our limit. Well, it was a beautiful motorhome, so I signed on the line. There were a few things that were defective, but we were assured that they would all be fixed, before we picked it up. That was a month ago, and the defects are not yet fixed. After many phone calls they finally took the unit into their service shop a week and a half ago, and as of this writing, one defect ourt of about a dozen have been resolved. The name of this outfit is Albany RV, and they have a dealership in Florida and one in Iowa. Be warned about these people, they know nothing about RVing and they don't want to know. All they care about is the sale. So if you want a trailer to park up at some lake so you can go to it on the weekend, or if you want to get a motorhome to drive up to the lake for a few days, that's good. But if you enjoy seeing America and driving great distances, stay away from these people, buying an RV from them is like buying a car from an Amish car saleman.
