I could have saved $500-600 US when I purchased my Designer by buying out of state, but I would have spent that much going to get it and bring it home. Buying locally has allowed me to have warranty service performed while on my home base site. The dealer comes to me to do the work and yes I do tip the service manager that does the work. I would spend more than the tip amount in fuel to tow to the dealership not to mention having to unhook my utilities and hook up. Buying locally is worth a lot to me, of course this depending on having a local dealer that goes above and beyond as I have.
Another reason to buy locally is if you have the Jayco extended warranty. Yes I know an outside company actually administers it for Jayco, but if you have work done under this extended warranty the deductible is $100.00. If you have the work done at the original selling dealer the deductible is $75.00. I have enjoyed this $75.00 deductible several times most recently last week.
