Purchasing from a dealer close to the factory?

Does anyone know if it's better to purchase the RV from a dealer close to the factory, as opposed to one in my state (WA)? I know I'd still have to pay WA taxes and all that. It just kind of bothers me that the rig will already have 2000+ miles on it (or whatever) even though it's brand new. I'm assuming those miles came from it being brought back here by the dealer from the factory.

And how the heck do you get that job? Wouldn't that be great?

Thanks!

It depends on what you mean by BETTER. You can probably get a better price buying closer to the dealer, but then you absorb the time and cost of getting there and transporting it back.
Then you have to worry about the warranty issues... your local dealer could refuse to service your trailer or could put you at the back of the line for service.
Generally speaking, I wouldn't worry about the miles on a camper. I don't think there are many travel trailers that have high mileage. Tires usually get replaced due to dry rot and age... not because the tread is worn down.

You pay for the transport whether you go get it or have Jayco do it.
