Thank you all for sharing your thoughts. The purchase has been a learning experience and I'm absolutely certain it's just the beginning.

Our dealer would have charged something like $1k-1,500 to deliver our tt to Cali back in 9/09 (can't remember the quote now). We used the $$ to drive back, pick it up from Indiana, and camp for 3 weeks coming back home. We are retired and could do it (and gas was cheaper then), but if we didn't do it that way, we would have had to pay that extra fee for it to get to Cali.

I have heard some fee's upwards of $3500 to get larger RV's to the West Coast lately *sux*.

Please share what destinations charges you've seen on your past RV purchases?
When we bought our truck in Summer 2009, the economy was taking a dive. We wanted a certain truck with specific requests and our dealer was desperate to make a deal and was willing to meet our 21% off MSRP. Our ultimate choice happended to be the only one in Cali and about a $300 transfer away. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to go get it at that particular time, so we opted for the dealer to get it.

Someone's gotta pay for the transport from the factory/etc and ultimately the dealer isn't going to want to do it, so make sure you get the vehicle purchase above 20% off MSRP or the RV 30% off MSRP minimum. Oh Lord, then there are the stinkin' taxes and state fee's..... I know, another thread LOL

Our unit is being delivered with no listed charge on the contract. But it's less than 300 miles. One reason I didn't mind driving a thousand miles for the pickup was our local dealer wanted $1800, not to mention thousands more for the same unit. We've now got $1800 to use for the pickup trip which will become an opportunity to visit friends & relatives along the way. As far as delivery miles on your new unit, I'd clear my mind of that so you can pick up your trailer with a smile. Save your high blood pressure pills for a real problem.
