Yeah bgum, very true about model years. That adds to the confusion in my post, i realize. I tried to keep my OP under novel length.
The official last model year naming by the manufacturer is 2019. Of course some of those were delivered in 2018 and 2020, i think. I can understand a salesman stretching a bit and calling a 2019 a 2020. But when one tells me he can order me a 2021 to be built to my specs..............well, he wouldnt answer any email after i called him on it.

This guy was with JC Penney selling appliances before he was layed off, now he is a RV salesman. Your doing your homework and now know what you want is not easily available, move on to TT that meets your needs. Less stress that way.

Wow. Is this via internet contact, or are you calling them on the phone? If you're writing to them, try switching to phone calls (and maybe ask for a manager). Every one of those dealerships has a telephone, with which you can explain in no uncertain terms that model xyz7 is the only thing you're interested in.

Maybe I should go into RV sales. Then there would be at least one honest, knowledgeable salesman in the business. [emoticon]

My wife told me I should do this as well. I told her I would not last a week [emoticon]

There is an author I know who wrote a series of science fiction books (Riverworld series) and in these books all men are "Clean Shaven" actually there is no facial hair so you never need to shave.

In one of them is a Line I will never forget.. one character says to the other: "If being clean shaven was a sign of an accomplished liar than all other liars would be as beared as Santa Clause".

So some liars (And I will NOT mention names) make others look honest.

Yeah, I started my search with all the common RV search sites and the sites of the larger dealers in the country. I am willing to travel most anywhere in the US to get what i want so i was looking from the pacific NW to Florida.

I dont want to say EVERY RV dealer/salesman is a crook as I know of 2 that i consider to be honest locally. I also dont think that trying to make the most $$ off of a sale is anything immoral at all. Thats just Business. +, I never even got to the price/quote stage with any of these dealers.

97 percent of salesmen give the rest of us a bad name.

Funny...I posted a few days ago, in jest, on the ATC forum, how we all know used car sales folks and politicians are dishonest, and the crazy lady deleted it. It was on the thread about the dishonest sales clerk, so did pertain! I know...most won't post on that forum, but I still do on occasion.
