I hate to say this, but I have wondered about that for a while now. There have been a few "suspicious" occurrences along the way that set off my "spidey senses" but I am just making notes, and setting them aside as coincidental for now. I might also just be a little paranoid after what I went thru with my local dealer, but because of these instances, it is also the reason why I have contacted Jayco directly at times to verify the information I have been receiving.

So I appreciate the heads up. Hopefully, they aren't leading me down some "path" because I happened to hurt a salesman's feelings by not just taking whatever numbers they placed in front of me.

But with that said, now that little guy with horns sitting on my shoulder is trying to convince me that the owners of this "group" have enough pull with Jayco that they have somehow convinced Jayco themselves to push back my trailer build as far as possible and Jayco themselves are complicit in all my issues getting this trailer!?!? Or worse yet, they never even submitted my order?!?!?!

NOW SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!?!?!

The dealer with the unit you want has that rig financed at his local bank on a floorplan loan. It takes him time and paperwork to "sell" the unit to your dealer. He's only going to do that if he gets compensated - AND - he probably also wants a little profit. All that cuts into your dealers margin. Then add the transportation cost . . .
Just doesn't happen.
Still happens in the Auto industry occasionally because the manufacturers STRONGLY encourage it between dealers. But the dealers will still fight it.
I have come to that conclusion as well.

Naw, I don't think that is necessary at this point. I currently believe that my current dealer is doing whatever they can to try and make this unfortunate situation as palatable as one can expect. Am I frustrated? Yep. Am I anxious that something else will go wrong? You bet. Do I currently blame anyone at this dealership for any of what has happened? Nope, and knowing what I know now, I actually think they are going out of their way to help where others might not.

I'm also sorry you are having to go thru all thus mental anguish. I hope us reading and following your logic and thought process can learn some lessons. An educated purchaser can set the tone for the purchase.

I have to be amused at the visual of you sitting in a room with all the little guys on your shoulder and all the littler guys laying outside who are giving advice that does not help much.

Anticipating a good ending for you.

Thanks Norty!

Just know that the feedback from this forum has been outstanding and has helped me cope with all this more than I think I could ever repay, but I will try. Even comments that appear on the surface to be less helpful in finding a resolution, actually reinforce my decision in regards to the direction I have chosen to take going forward.

I also hope that if what I am going thru, helps another to somehow go into this whole process with a little more "enlightenment", they can avoid what I am having to deal with.

As for those little guys on my shoulder, it's my way of just bringing a little light humor into a situation where there is none. To do otherwise, is just asking for things to get worse. But let me also note that in case anyone is worried about my sanity, all I can do is to quote Sheldon Cooper, "I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested".

Biggest lesson I learned from this thread is to order the trailer 6 months in advance to when you'll need it.
