I would never pay a PDI fee....MY dealer Keystone Mega RV Center charged absolutely nothing and everything was perfect on delivery day..Clean and no leaks. I have found a few things that were missed by both manufacture and dealer but were fixed in minutes. they are still human after all..PDI fees and Doc fees are just line items on a Bill of sale to make pure profit. I will never pay them.

You pay them weather there listed or not. It's an additional profit but you negotiate it all. And what ever price you pay it's still in the profit.

Glad to hear all was the way it should be, however the PDI is in the MSRP. Some dealers do add another fee on top of that.

No. My price was either the same or lower than the other 2 quotes I got and all the others were adding a PDI fee on the bill of sale as a line item on top of everything else.
My dealer added nothing.
I have no problem with them making money but to list it as an item on the bill of sale is crap IMO

I have a 2013 Jayco 221 and it has 5000 miles on it. Only two issues have been a false carbon monoxide alarm and the attachments that "bolt" the TV the brackets came loose from vibration. Very happy with it after 6 months.

In reference to the tires, it wouldn't surprise me at all if some unscrupulous dealer took the radial tires off the unit and put it on a different unit, then put the bias ply's from unit 2 onto unit 1. They probably assumed the original owner wasn't diligent enough to notice, and might have been right.

Like has been stated before, RV's are assembled by hand by a crew who is in a rush to meet production quotas. Minor mistakes are going to be made. The dealer should be catching those mistakes. They make pretty good money per sale and do very little work to get the sale. The least that a salesman could do is personally inspect a camper before the buyers arrive to pick it up and ensure that obvious things are either fixed or documented for the new owners.

Jim,

Finding out some of the TT's unknown history explains a lot...., sounds like you got a "like new" used TT!

Tires, and average use of a trailer

I simply can't imagine folks purchasing a trailer and only camping once or twice. We started with tents, each kid was in the tent before a year old, with the exception of the fourth. Went from tents to used pop-up, new pop-up, used trailer, and recently ordered a new trailer.

I know the tires on my current unit dry rotted after sitting while preparing for and going on a military deployment. Things seem to go down hill from lack of use sometimes. Hope you enjoy the new unit.

We have just returned from a weeks camping, and enjoyed the unit very much.
We feel that it will serve us well in the future.

We are pretty close to our Max Trailer weight for the 3.7 Ford, but it handled the load very well, and we averaged above 10mpg. while towing.
