We bought local. The pricing was middle of the road (not the best or worst) and the dealership was right down the freeway a few miles. In retrospect, I could have saved a few thousand by looking further away, but the unit was the one we were looking for and it was right there. Now that that we are considering upgrading to a fifth wheel, I find their pricing to be rediculously high. I also feel that they don't stock enough Jayco's and that Jayco is seriously under represented in the Houston area. When we finaly decide to upgrade, I will seriously consider the wholesalers because their pricing and selection is unbeatable. Not to mention the customer service experience has been less than desirable with the local guys.

Amen. Especially the part about being underrepresented.

Saved a considerable amount scanning daily for what I was interested in being at a price that couldn't be beat. Drove a few hours to get it and feel it was well worth my time. That dealership I found over purchased what they thought was going to sell well and had a couple left to purge for new models to come in. My gain.

Local...

I got a quote from RV Direct but the local dealership got within $1000 of that price. I "might" have been able to drive 2000 miles each way for $1000, but maybe not. Had there been a 4-5k difference that would be a different story.

We bought local after CW matched RV Direct pricing (plus added delivery to make up for more miles). I would have driven to save some money, but not sure exactly how much the difference would have needs to be.

We're fortunate to have a local family owned dealer who's always been competitive with others we've looked at. The rare warranty issues have been dealt with quickly and if it's an issue I choose to address on my own, they've offered guidance and tools if needed.

Bought (ordered) local, but traveled 1500 miles to Orlando to check out the model I was buying. (Well I was going there anyway, but made the special trip to RV dealer.. lol!)
I wasn't going to order w/o first seeing one up close and personal.
Waiting for January/February delivery.

250+ miles to the Harrisburg RV Show, where we ordered it. Then, once it came in, 225 miles to the dealership outside of Philadelphia, where Jayco shipped to. The funny part is that there is a Jayco dealership 15 miles from my home, but I've purchased two new units from them in years-past, and they screwed-up both orders...
