Dealer Games

I ordered a 29RKS about 2 months ago. The new rig is finally in and we are picking it up tomorrow.

When negotiating the deal they informed us about a $199 prep fee and a $499 doc fee. I understand these a very common and impossible to negotiate. We negotiated a very good deal IMO for the camper $21k.

I requested the PO today so I could finalize financing with my credit union (2.29% for 59 months). On the PO they snuck in a $59 DMV fee. And there reasoning is for title and registration. Even tho Iím not having them register it. (They still have to deal with the title, which is $35 per the dmv website).

I assumed all dmv fees would have been included in the doc fee.

What are your thoughts? Am I over reacting or should I play hardball and refuse to pay that additional fee that was spurred on me at the last minute?

Appreciate the advice.

Just pay that and move on. Not worth an hr on the phone.

At this point its moot. The prep fees and such are bs. Our local dealer does not charge these fees. Make sure they fill your lp tanks for free and give you a battery too. That should all be included. Also make sure they give you an adapter to plug in at your house and the stabilizer jack wrench is in there.

If I were you Iíd ask them to apply the cost of the new battery towards two 6V Trojans. Or just ask for the $ and drive straight to Costco for two 6V.

What are the benefits with the two 6v’s vs the standard?

I think you win the dealer with the most fees contest!

A 6v has 210 amp hrs. Wired in series it gives you 12v at 210 amp hrs. One 12v has maybe 75 amp hrs. Even if u buy two 12 and run them in parallel that gives you 150 amp hrs.
