Fun with RV salesmen

Anyone have a strange or humorous experience with an rv salesman?

I had one while bargaining on price. At the last minute when we were within a few hundred dollars this salesman abruptly raised his offer $20,000. I got up and walked out.

Haven't dealt with a 'salesman' since 2001
I purchase via Internet and only go to dealer to pickup

Did have an Auto Salesman giving me the 'boss won't authorize that' line
So after couple of up went across the street and purchased a car then drove it back across street....pulled up in front/honked horn and gave the salesman a wave

I stopped and was looking once when I had time to kill. While trying to explaining how one unit was built way better than anything else, the guy was jumping up and down o the shower and slamming cabinet doors as hard as he could. it was hot and I said lets walk back in and talk about it. We sat at a table and I asked if he could get us a water, and when he left to get it, I walked out and was gone.

We were looking at a used motorhome that was advertised as "In Like New" condition. The salesman proudly pointed out that the coach had been checked using their 101 point checklist that doesn't miss anything. As we walked up to the coach I pointed out the rubber blade on one of the windshield wipers was ripped and hanging down. He said "I'm sure out mechanic saw that and is ordering new blades." I looked down and saw water inside the turn signal housing "I'm sure he has ordered a new turn signal lens." The battery compartment was a corroded mess "Oh a little water will wash that white stuff right off." Then I pointed out that is looked like the inside tire on the rear dually was flat and it looked like it was damaged.

Inside Sharon found a dead mouse in one of the cabinets below the kitchen sink, and the carpet looked like it had never seen a vacuum cleaner in its life. Sharon announced "there is no way we would buy this coach" and started to walk outside. In a finial attempt to lure us back the salesman said "sure she needs a little TLC here and there buy you can believe me the rest of the coach is perfect".

We left never to return to that dealer again.

Is this thread for funny salesman stories or odd customer stories? I'm not entirely clear on it at this point.

I went to one dealership and really confused the salesman. I should not had done it but could not resist. I asked him to spell the word "RV". He couldn't, so I went some where else.
