I hear ya Dave C, we did the same thing. I won't even consider buying here, for the attitude alone; the closest dealer to us wouldnt even talk prices over the phone. I like the American no-nonsense approach of posting prices online that are already 20-30% below MSRP (some dealers anyway) and then still able to wiggle a bit. We paid less than the posted "dealer cost" with all our options and were able to even get them to throw in a weight dist. hitch and set up my brake controller, etc, we saved thousands. Importing was such a simple process too. We will be doing it again for sure next time around as well. For us it meant driving an extra 300 KM each way.
That 13K in savings will pay for a lot of camping, Dave C!
