I guess I have to wonder why any RV salesman would be confessing to the world why he does what he does. Seems counterproductive.


Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

buyer beware. its common knowledge that a dealer is lying if his lips are moving......... remember though, your truck can pull anything on this lot.

Great reason to stay away from purchasing any RV. Just a waste of money.

These articles are just "click bait" to promote the people/businesses running ads on their site. I know many RV salespeople, many are my friends and I would trust them more than someone who publishes an anonymously written slam piece. You can replace RV Salesperson with anything, Car Salesperson, Pharmacist, Doctor, roofer, mechanic, anything. You make up your own mind who you want to deal with and if you feel good about it you win. Nice try Mac or whatever your name really is.

The figures the author wrote are made up just like the figures on most MSRP sheets. Not something I would give much credence to.

Looks like someone took all the gripes people have about salespeople and molded it for the RV industry and published. Wouldn't surprise me that they will soon publish articles about cars , homes and any other sales occupation.
As said before click bait.

Seems legit, I've bought many cars, trucks, and RVs over the past fifty years and have seen all of those tricks.

That sales person may be manipulating customers but I didn't notice any lies to the customer. All successful sales people learn how to manipulate customers.

I've often thought about being an RV salesman for real, because I like rv's and talking to people about rv's. The problem I would be to honest and therefore either have small paychecks or fired.[emoticon]
