Ordering vs on-the-lot 26BHS

I'd like to buy a 2015 26BHS with fiberglass sides. In the case of a 26BH, I've seen that buying one on the lot from OrlandoRV is about $1,000 less than ordering one (on the lot, the 26BH is about $16,600.) I'm thinking about waiting until one like I want is on a lot, with the hope of saving. Advice? Thanks!!

You might want to talk to a salesman and see what they say. If you know EXACTLY what you want, you can walk in and find a salesman and offer an easy, but smaller, commission. If they won't take the offer, let them know that you want a particular unit and will buy from whomever can provide it.

You have the luxury of being close to Orlando. You can buy online from RVdirect.com and pick it up in Orlando. I am sure local dealers are aware of the nearby wholesale dealer and would be willing to work a little more on the price.

Get a quote from RVdirect.com priced the exact way you want (with color options you want too, for that matter) and see what it is. I got a quote for 36% off the MSRP. That seemed pretty good to me...

I think Orlando RV is the RVdirect dealer in Fla. Get a RVD quote and see if you can get it for even less. I'm pretty sure that's the dealer we picked up our 23B from and they made us very comfortable.

I did get the impression that RVDirect was effectively the internet sales side of OrlandoRV.

You say the price of the unit on the lot is a thousand cheaper than something ordered. It sounds like you're willing to pay what the dealer is asking. I may not have all the story here. Is that thousand dollar difference AFTER negotiation? You sure need to negotiate. Often, 30% off MSRP is doable. Many do better. If you get an RVDirect quote and show it to a bricks & mortar dealer, make sure their offer is for the exact list of options.

My understanding is that RVD has "relationships" with a few RV dealers around the country that act as delivery agents for the purchases. I think the inventory that RVD shows you is what is in stock at each of the dealerships. RVD does the work in terms of closing the deal, financing etc and the brick and stick shop (Orlando) just does the delivery and gets near-wholesale for the unit but didn't have to do any sales work.

My dealer was much more motivated to sell units on the lot. When I asked about ordering a unit, they just handed me the Jayco MSRP sheet and said to click the options I want. Prices as printed with freight costs already filled in, no negotiating. They were helpful, just not motivated to bargain at all. The stock was a different story. I guess it all depends on the dealer.

Don't get the "ordered" price thru your local dealer. I used RV Connections in Middlebury In [2 1/2 miles from the Jayco factory]. You plug in the model and options and they quote a price in less than an hour. Unless your dealer is discounting end of year stuff on the lot, you will find the online price many thousands lower. Don't buy the local dealer BS. Make sure he understands you will go elsewhere if he isn't willing to negotiate in good faith.

If a purchase is made thru rv direct and picked up in Orlando, can my local dealer decline to fix any warranty issues? I am concerned about this? Orlando is three hours away from my home in south Florida.

Thanks,

Mike

Any Jayco dealer can do any Jayco warranty work. Doubtful they'd ever try to deny it because it's easy guaranteed money for them. If they tried to give you grief, I'd contact Jayco and get them on the dealer.
