Is RV Direct Legit?

I am negotiating with my local dealer and he is saying the price RV Direct is giving me is bs! He says they bate and switch. It's 3k less then what they are giving me and it has the elite package. Please advise? Thanks

They have numerous dealerships and several people on the forum have bought from them. Also, they are not the only dealership that does on-line sales under a different business name.

Can't speak for RV Direct, but thervexpress.com is legit in the price they quote you. The only down side is the drive back to Middleberry Indiana to pick it up, but the drive back to AZ was nice. I used them this year to, order my new 5er. Was happy with the price but had a couple administrative glitches I had to deal with after taking possession.

If you want more info feel free to PM me.

Thanks everyone the local dealer just gave me what I wanted. It's still a higher price but I would rather keep it local and not drive 40 hours if you know what I mean.

We bought our first TT (X23B) from RV Direct. We had a good experience. never needed dealer warranty service. Some dealers will not service a rig bought elsewhere. I expect your salesperson doesn't want to price match. Their general discount is 30% and some buyers use that as a negotiation tool.
The downside is there aren't many pickup locations (they are regular brick n stick RV dealers) so you may have to travel a bit for pickup and getting warranty, service may be an issue. We went from Houston to Orlando to get ours, made a mini vacation out of it.

Yes, they are legit and potentially worth $3000 in savings. I was fortunate to have a local dealer order me a trailer with the options and colors I wanted for about $300 more than RVDirect quoted me. Saved me from making a trip and I have a local dealer. Wasn't worth the drive for $300... it would be worth it for $3000 though...

I believe they are - my dealer matched their price for the trailer, but did add in their delivery and prep charge. I felt better about buying local anyway.

My local dealer wanted over $4k more than rvdirect.com/RV One and wouldn't budge (first price was $6k over!). The local dealer has a "free" warranty and used that as justification. My research led me to believe the "free" warranty bit was a revenue generator for the dealer and not a real benefit to most customers.

As far as RV One, so far so good for me. I just received notification today my unit is estimated to be off line August 28. I've had good contact with the salesperson. I'll update more experiences as I get further down the road.
