I’m going to leave my original post up (below) because there is a lesson here (to me primarily!). It was originally titled, “When Your Local Dealer Isn’t Very Good”. In short, I judged the book by its cover. Well, I finally stopped into that small dealership in Nashville and started a conversation that has gone on for several weeks now, culminating in me today putting a deposit down on a factory order for a 2020 [email protected]
400 BDL. What they lacked in inventory was made up for with what had to be the nicest shopping experience I’ve had on an RV. I asked the salesman if he could work up a quote for an order, knowing full well I would be waiting weeks, months, for a camper. I was pleasantly surprised when he came back and said the dealership already had two 400s on order, and he called the factory rep to see if they could change the order they had already submitted to match my order sheet. The factory said ‘yes’. My camper will be rolling out of the factory on August 1st, just 5-6 weeks after placing the order! Oh, and by the way, they are breaking ground for a service center and larger dealership lot. My local [email protected] dealer has had the same single 400 on their lot for 6-9 months (and only one other 320), and I’m concerned they don’t care too much about the brand. They don’t have a local service shop either. I know we are encouraged to buy from our local dealer, but quite frankly I’m concerned the local dealer isn’t up to par on sales or support. We really want to get a 400, but the prospect of a long-distance dealer seems equally as bad as trying to do business with the local who may not support the product very well.
