I paid before walk thru, and had no problems. HOWEVER. I would not recommend this practice. The dealer I was purchasing from had been in business for longer than I have been alive, and I'm a retired banker. Also the dealer has numerous other sales with our family, so there was a high level of trust.

I can understand a request for down payment but never would pay upfront before I have inspected and are ready to finish the paperwork. I rather would walk away....
There is more fish in the sea. A dealer can go in receivership without you knowing it.
Then you loose a lot more...

I bought a starter unit and when we went to pick it up, the dealer was in complete turmoil due to the fact that everybody had just wrapped up a major show. Needless to say the PDI was kind of a joke, but the flip side was they had the TT all hooked up, cleaned and ready to go, and handed me the keys to my truck with a "thanks, all ready to go,see ya"

Funny thing was, I had not even paid for it. I had to basically say, "uh...I believe we have some business to finish up." Long story short, I could have got in the rig, and rolled right out of the dealership without even paying for it.

Thinking on what ALJO said I got pretty lucky to have had a smooth delivery and virtually event free first three outings..considering I paid in full before delivery.. also just winterized my first time on my own..yikes everything ran pink though after diddling with air locks in the line for an hour! But ALJO is right..even though Jayco does not accept the sale until you sign off..dealerships can go into receivership and that would be big trouble

In 11-14, we pd $3K down upon ordering a 31Ds greyhawk, but got the RV dealer to agree to refund the downpaymt if we decided not to take it; they checked with Jayco and were told that was OK, because they figured they could still sell it (only difference was an overcab bed, not ent system.

We ordered a new one at the show and only put 20 dollars down then when we went into the rv dealer the following week we put 500 when we signed order ... Didn't finish paperwork and paying until we picked it up . I figure once it is payed in full what is their incentive to make sure it gets delivered in a timely manner

I paid in full but they had to wait three weeks for me to pick up as I already had other plans being in a condo at the coast. I figure if your that paranoid about the dealer then your dealing with the wrong dealer.

If you must pay before the walk through/demo because of their policy etc just have the dealer write up something stating "any repairs needed will be made by the dealer to the cust satisfaction prior to taking full delivery/removing from dealers lot or result in full refund" and have them sign/date it. Bought ours used w/ cash and the dealer did the walk through afterwards with no probs found thankfully. Good luck!
