This dealer does have a good reputation for service and I know several campers who have bought and been serviced by this dealer. And the dealers advertised prices are better than other Jayco dealers in my driving area.
I will inquire about going w/ the prodigy controller though.
Thanks again for the input. I hope to have this deal closed soon.
In your case it sounds like it's perfect for you and there is a price for that, one that dollars can't be put on. If your happy and it suits your needs then pull the trigger. You don't want to miss it based on a few hundred bucks.
As for the RV direct pricing, agreed that they may not be the best all the time, but on avg they are a good barometer that is painless to obtain IMHO. I think it depends on the unit and location your in. In both cases RVD was significantly less than any dealer within 200 miles of me. Then again we pay for "everything" here in the NE. Just once I want to walk into a dealer, car or RV and see a great deal without the haggling.
