This dealership has been in business since 1964 here in Columbia, SC and do a lot of business so I know that isn't the issue. Thor notified them that the Jayco products/ business is being taking away from "mom & pop" dealerships and being referred to the bigger establishments- our dealer said they were told by Thor that parts and warranty issues will now have to be sent to Camping World in Columbia.

We just bought our camper in 2014 and NOT looking to trade-we have had some minor issues, covered under warranty, and our dealership was just letting us know of the new changes.

Warranty issues will have to be addressed by Camping World in Columbia, SC, our dealer has a few Jayco's on their lot that they will sell, but not sure if they will continue with sales for Jayco since Thor's decision

Hmm.
I don't think a dealer can get much smaller than our local one.

Does this dealership sell other brands or just Jayco?

Just so no one is deceived by the "Jayco Factory Direct Parts" this IS NOT Jayco.

The registrant on that URL is:
Registrant Name: David Skogebo
Registrant Organization: World Wide RV
Registrant Street: 4660 E Main St.
Registrant City: mesa
Registrant State/Province: Arizona
Registrant Postal Code: 85205
Registrant Country: US
Registrant Phone: (480) 832-5600

Jayco should (and probably will) file a Copyright infringement and get that URL taken down.

I also suspect your dealer is telling you a fib to cover. I'd bet they have been cut-off for non-payment of bills or have had too many service complaints.

I do know that Jayco has a double standard for service complaints. They ride the mom-and-pop's for every little consumer complaint, and completely ignore complaints about Camping World dealers.

But I bought my trailer from a "mom-and-pop" that has a tiny lot near Atlanta yet sells Jayco's right and left. I seriously doubt Jayco would cut their nose off to despite their face. In addition they could probably be sued for restraint of trade if they did so.

Thor's legal dept may just be enforcing "the exclusivity clause". Many RV manuf don't allow multiple dealers within a 50 mile radius of each other. Had a freind look at and buy a Grand Design in Tampa FL at the RV show, but they had to get it from the dealer's "other" store near Orlando. It could not be purchased from the Tampa location because another dealer had the "exclusivity rights".
