I had a very, very good experience with RVD. They are very responsive to both price and technical questions. The person I worked with was returning a massive amount of emails to me on days she was off. I am the person who likes to spend my money locally with businesses just for the personable service. So we were looking for a 334RBTS and went to our local Jayco dealer who would not budge on the price which I thought was odd given the econnomic climate, especially selling RV's!! Contacted RVD who came back with a price of $8,000 cheaper for a rig actually that had about $1,000 more options on it so we were saving $9,000. The local dealer said go ahead and buy it from RVD, we aren't selling the coach at that price. So I said well can we at least talk about me supporting local business, etc, response was we sell at MSRP or we wont sell. Ok??? Jayco I hope you are reading this about one of your dealers in Pa.

I happen to work in sales for a global manufacturer, covering (9) dealers in 10 states selling very expensive products, so I think I know a thing or two about sales. Obviously the local dealer makes money on preying on customers who simply don't know any better and write the check. I work too hard for my money, went with RVD where I was treated like royalty by a person I never met or ever will meet in person. Who cares that I had to drive 5 hour to Albany NY to pick it up, I saved $8,000. Now I take it back to my local dealer who just had to do warranty work on it! Of course I made sure the RVD decals are very obvious.

I went to Buffalo RV and they couldn't believe that RV direct was giving me a better quote. Sad part is, I would be picking it up there if I ordered. I'm so happy that I had somewhere closer that didn't give me any troubles about matching the price.

X2 my local dealer came in at $30 higher but were hundreds of miles closer than RVdirect. The only thing they did was request a quote like me to make sure I wasn't full of BS. When they verified the price I gave to them they didn't hesitate for a minute to get me within $30 which saved me a ton of money if you consider the round trip cost to the nearest RV direct dealer.
No one can argue with your approach and for buying local. The sad truth is most local dealers won't come anywhere near the online price. Figuring in the low trade value and hi new TT price, I saved $5000 [net of cost of 900 mile round trip to pick it up] by buying from an online dealer.

Here I am coming up on my 2 year mark and am scheduling my first trip to a dealer for warrantee service before the warrantee runs out. Going to get the front cap painted [faded] and a couple of other minor issues addressed. If it wasn't for the cap issue I wouldn't bother even taking it in. Point is that in my opinion, purchasing an RV is about getting what you want for the best price. Workmanship of the manufacturer you choose is miles more important than worrying about the guy down the road who might get you in a few days faster if you buy from him. That guy will earn my business by selling at the best price and delivering good service if I bring in a product for repair.

Too many local dealers want to prey on "locals" who are too lazy or old fashion to shop for a better deal elsewhere. The stuck in the mud local dealers are going to be toast soon anyway because the younger generations pretty much buy everything on line. The ones that survive will be the ones who learn how to do business in the new world.

Just picked up our new 28 Bhbe from Tampa RV and bought it from RV Direct. Both RV Direct and Tampa RV were great. I saved over $2,500 just took 2 months to get it. I was able to get the Camper the way I wanted it also. It was a great experience and would do it again. We went to Camping World and talked to a few other dealers and found they knew very little about the campers. I knew more about the campers buy doing research on the internet. The people at RV Direct were professional, helpful and knew the Jayco products they were selling.
