rv direct anyone use them?

hello, we are looking at upgrading our present 2011 23fb and we are looking at another jayco. we are unable to get a price that we think is reasonable on the new unit. i do have a quote from rv direct that is more than reasonable. has anyone purchased a unit from them or heard anything good or bad about them? pros or cons ? we are considering a jayco eagle 257rbs or the eagle 266rks.

thanks,

max

There are a number of members here that have mentioned actually making the purchase straight through RVDirect. I can't think of one that I read where they were unhappy. Hopefully one of those members will see this thread and share their positive experiences

Another thought...we used RVDirect as a resource for price quotes on rv's we were considering. We wound up contacting the internet manager of a 'local' dealer who was willing to honor the RVDirect quote. Hope this helps. Happy shopping!!

[I] don't kno where u r located but I drove out to OK(860 mi each way) to but a Jayco 154BH from Camperland of OK. Saved some big bucks and the service was all first class. Jodi is the gal I dealt with, real honest young lady. Might be worth a call? Good luck.

thank you, those are both good ideas. 3 trailers ago we travelled 1200 miles one way to save a lot of money on the rig we wanted. the amount we are talking here is 7000.00 dollars but that does not include the expense of picking it up which fuel would account for 600 dollars plus then the camping on the way back and other incidentals.

We bought from RVDirect, the Albany facility. The unit was ready when and as promised. No surprise or hidden fees, the quote is what you pay. I tried a few closer by dealers and got the run around. The only downside I see is when you order one you pay for it or arrange financing before it arrives, so if there was a major issue the trailer is yours. . Of course if you buy from inventory you could view the unit first. But ours was all good when we picked it up. We tried it out for a night in a nearby CG and everything was peachy. I say if you can save 6 grand go for it.....

We bought our first TT (X23B) from RVD. The only negative in the whole experience was the person I dealt with in their finance dept who was not very helpful or friendly. We drove about 930 miles one way to pick up our new toy and while the planning was a bit stressful everything went without a hitch. We planned our first night close to the dealer in case there was a problem. The next morning we hit the road and spent 3 more nights working our way back to the Houston area. In total we spent 2 nights in hotels and 4 nights in campgrounds.
About the pre-pickup stress: I made a collection of "stuff" that I knew I needed, thought I needed and just might come in handy and just worried about the things that could go wrong. We picked Orlando as our pick up location knowing the road was all Interstate and pretty flat (and they had the unit I wanted). The dealer installed and adjusted my hitch, we bought a few things from their shop, did the walk thru and headed out. There was some construction on the I-12 that goes around New Orleans that left me a bit white-knuckled but outside of that the trip home was totally uneventful (except we were having a ball).
I've not had the need to visit a local dealer for warranty work (yet) so I don't know how that might go.
Would I buy that way again? Absolutely!

I bought from RV Direct, Orlando Facility. I was happy with my experience and thought we got a good price.

We bought our Pinnacle from RV Direct in Orlando also.

The agreed price is what we paid and PDI was done well.

They spent all the time needed at delivery to go over all systems and answer all my questions.

We would buy from them again.

We bought and picked up at Albany. Very easy to deal with, pricing was more than fair and everything went according to the schedule they outlined from the original purchase agreement. I tried to take my RVD pricing locally and they did not budge. I would do it again when we look to change. That's off in the distant future though, very happy with my rig.
