I bought our camper 2 years ago through an rv wholesaler, I had payment arranged before we picked up our trailer but check was dated for day of delivery. They were fine with that. The wholesalers do not want to have to resell a camper if somebodies financing falls through or customer backs out of a sale. Most do not have a sales staff at their delivery lots so they want to be sure that once a rig arrives at a delivery lot a customer will be picking it up.
BTW, never had a problem getting service or warranty work done at another dealer either. If and when I ever decide to buy another new rv I will most likely buy through a wholesaler again unless a local dealer can come reasonably close to the same price.

Quite a bit off topic...but no a JayFlight is not a 4-season trailer by any stretch and would not be comfortable well below 0*C (32*F). You may be able to make it work in a desperate pinch, but if you are buying then buy a 4-season trailer to begin with.

ALBANY RV
Albany, New York
BUFFALO RV
Buffalo, New York
DES MOINES RV
Des Moines, Iowa
ORLANDO RV
Orlando, Florida
TAMPA RV
Tampa, Florida

All these dealerships are owned and operated by Don Strollo here in Albany,NY.When you do business with this guy expect high pressure sales,BS sales agreements and if you do end up making a purchase from this farce of a dealership you better hope you don't have to bring it back for warranty work because you'll have to jump through hoops to get them to work on it.
I purchased my TT from Johnston RV in Rochester,NY just so I wouldn't have to deal with Don and his sales team.

What I learned while on a tour of the Jayco plant was that they don't build "inventory". EVERY trailer and MH they build was sold before it went on the assembly line. Not only that but they don't ship ANYTHING to a dealer unless they are paid for in full by the dealer before the transporter leaves the lot with it. Given the fragile nature of the finances of some of these dealers I can understand Jayco protecting themselves this way. I would imagine that Jayco is not alone in this business practice.

Interesting..so the projection of their success is dependent on what a dealer either anticipates or is able to afford in sales potential

I bought from Albany RV. High pressure, after they have your money they don't know you. Never return calls. Would not buy an outhouse from those clowns. No dealer prep on unit, I could write a book. Beware.

Another jayco owner shafted by Don Strollo. I would think the word would get out about this clown and his dealership.

Make sure if things are not to your standards on the PDI write them down on a due bill. Do not transfer any money until this is written down as it will be a legal binding contract.

We bought our 5th wheel through RV Direct and took delivery through their Des Moines location. Never felt pressured in any way. The sales office always returned calls and were able to answer any questions we had. We saved over $6000 by going through them rather than going through a dealership. Warranty work has not been a problem either. I would buy from them again.
