The RV Business Magazine articles must be like published fishing reports, old. All the RV dealers in our area had empty lots all summer but are now wall to wall new units, squeezed in like valet parking.

It took a good bit of negotiations thru several dealers, but I landed on a Momentum 28G locally for a price I'm happy with that I'm picking up next week. Thanks for the input!


I just looked up the floorplan. That's a real beauty. Nice.

What kind of toys do you plan to haul? It looks like there's plenty of space from front to back, as long as your toys aren't too wide for the slide.


Thanks.. We wanted the open floor plan for our Kayaks but the toy hauler for my Indian Springfield. We also have a Rincon as well that I like to take out.

Background: Just purchased a 2021 TT.
My shopping experience: Found the best deals from wholesalers, but
RV Trader was my go-to place to compare new/used rigs.


What exactly is a "wholesaler" ? I thought all manufacturers only sold through retail dealers.


You are correct. The "wholesaler" tag is a marketing term. But, like RV Wholesalers for example, they deal in high volume sales, therefore getting better pricing from the manufacturer.


Exactly, a marketing ploy. However, there used to be some internet based dealers that were great.

About 12 years ago I purchased a Crossroads Cruiser from one of these dealers in Ohio. It was 1000 mile drive from my home in Texas. Price was about $7K less than the best deal I could find anywhere locally. They also could offer a better price because of their low freight cost from the factory (being very close). All units were special order so they had no money tied up in inventory. Folks willing to travel got a great deal.

All that stopped a couple of years later when local dealers started losing business because of pricing, and having customers buy at these remote locations and then bring them into local dealers wanting warranty work. Manufacturers started cracking down on internet low pricing, and as a result, we also now have policies (supported by the manufacturers) where non-selling dealers do not voluntarily have to work on trailers.

All good things must come to an end..............
