That's NEVER worked for me, (Fleetwoods, Winnies, and now a Thor owner). I always just shop for the best price, or where it's convenient. And, the best price is rarely, (read NEVER), at the same place with the best service.
Any dealership that honors the manufacturer's warranty has worked out fine with all my RV's.
Purchased and picked up our new Hurricane 34E in Florida, (indulged the kids with a maiden voyage to Fort Wilderness), and drove it home to California. It would be a royal PITA, (but fun, if I had that much free time), to return to the original dealer for warranty work, or regular service.
