Turns out the dealer can get a much better interest rate than I can as a private citizen calling the bank. A full 1.76 points lower! So I negotiated a fair trade in for my current travel trailer and a great deal on a new 5th Wheel. So I pulled the trigger and ordered a 2019 Forest River Salem Hemisphere 286RL today. Only thing I changed on it was instead of the 10.7cf residential fridge and inverter that's a power hog when boondocking, I got it with a 8cf RV fridge that runs on AC or Propane. I should have it in 5-6 weeks which is fine since we aren't booked to go camping for another 10 weeks.

I would suggest a trip to Indianna to tour some of the factories before you buy. It will be very informative and they are free. I had a 2007 FR Silverback that we liked for some time. We ordered a new one in 2016 and purchased it from a dealer in Ohio that was a high volume, lowest price. Saved major $ and hauled it home ourselves. Another major $ savings. Spend some time at RV Dealers and shows searching for the floor plans you like and the amenities you want. Don't accept anything less than what you are looking for. It is generally a large investment. Most dealers are hooked up with reasonable nationwide lenders so if you aren't locked in to one at home, don't worry about it.
