Should I be Scared??

I came home from work yesterday and the DW tells me she was surfing the internet during the day...She tells me that she found an Eagle 355MBQS 5er at one of the DFW local dealers. She then proceeds to ask me if we can go "look" at it this Saturday. Any advice?

It sounds to me like you already know the answer. Just sign and the enjoy your new 5er.

Don't be scared. Just let her know that when your done at the RV dealership you will need to make a "quick" stop at your favorite truck dealership.

Know what your current trailer is worth privately before you sign! They are going to offer you 6-8K less than the sales price is my guess, so prepare you and your DW for the realities of this. Have a game plan in hand and I would also get a quote from RV direct just to have as a benchmark for what a "real good deal is". If you don't go in educated IMHO it is a huge disadvantge to you when your at the table talking numbers. I am usually the one doing the "looking" but DW knows I do my homework so trusts my decisions.

Also I see in your sig you have a Mega Cab, extra short bed. That is going to require a sliding hitch to clear your cab and possibly some bags to handle the pin weight. Tons of options there so also do your homework as they can get expensive.

Engine and tranny are fine, just the springs need a little more beef like a 3500SRW IMHO.

My 2 cents to make it more enjoyable.

Y'all crack me up...and to top it off, are full of great advice! Got the RV Direct quote in hand and have the estimates for bags and slider. The only reason I'm hesitant about the deal is that I got the 5 yr warranty from dealership for free when we purchased BHBE. I hate to give up that piece of mind.

That's another bargaining point. If the warranty is transferable you've got yet another.
Enjoy the new rig!

Dan, didn't you just get done upgrading? That's some serious two-foot-itis!

My DW is on the hunt for a boat. Deal is her Xterra has to be able to tow it (not really that big a deal, it towed our old boat like a boss). She's hesitant to separate herself from the cash though. I'm a bit less "conservative" on that front. Carpe Diem! Can't take it with you! Spend it up and live your life to the fullest!! You only get one go 'round!

Edit: And I believe that was post #2001 for me! Woooohoooo!!
