Oh no! That's the expensive way. You can buy Kirkland's brand at Costco or Scott's regular is good, too. You certainly don't need RV toilet paper.

I take Camping World with a grain of salt. I found our Dutch Star at a Camping World. It had just came in on a trade. I did my due diligence by checking out the coach using other resources. Been very happy with my purchase.

Always and this means every time....Get the VIN in any communication.

It is required in much advertising and usually is seen in the bottom of the add.

Get the vin and an expiration date for price.

If no down payment to hold then they can sell at any time for any price so before booking a flight to see be sure whatever it is will be there.

If a new unit at a dealer chain that are "company owned" the deposit and paperwork may be possible to start anywhere even looking at similar unit on different lot then fly to do unit specific stuff later.

If you had a quote with a price on a vin and the vin was on the lot they would need to honor it.

No vin in your quote and they can claim that one was sold but they had another one just like it but it is more...

I just bought a 26' class C from camping world. It was a freedom elite and I called around to check on prices for four winds (same RV different name) and no one could touch the price camping world was offering within 10k. It wasn't old stock either. they had to order it in. 2017.

That said the deal went smooth but you just have to look out for the extras. They way they present the warrantys is actually VERY impressive. The warranty talk goes on for a while. I declined all warrantys. They put everything in payments. Hey this is only $10 more a month type of stuff. Ask to only see real prices and worry about payments later.

O and if you really want to get their panties in a bunch call around to a few places for financing yourself. That did NOT go over well with them especially when I didn't want the warranty.

Big reason I don't get the warranty is I hate waiting for a service center to work on my rig. You can loose a whole summer. I just fix it myself and enjoy my time.

We paid $129K for a 2014 Fleetwood Excursion 2 years ago (a leftover). So your$130K price for the Palazzo is probably in the ballpark for a year old leftover for these "entry level" DPs. You're in peak season now, so bargains might not be as easy to find. Obviously lots of anti CW opinions here.

I love my diesel, but in a smaller coach like the 33'ers I'd probably go gas if I could do it over again. Well, actually if I could do it over again I'd skip the smaller coach and go right to the 40' DP I have now
