RV Sales FAQ
Below are our most frequently asked questions, if you cannot find an answer to your question please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
Just like automobiles there are many different quality levels, features, and options that drive the price either up or down. You could be looking at two very similar trailers but the price difference could be thousands of dollars between them.
One of the reasons could be the materials used to build the trailer. Traditional trailer manufacturing methods rely on a steel foundation frame and a wood stud upper structure with aluminum siding. While this construction method is still widely used in the industry, more recently, lighter weight alloys and composite materials are being used which reduce the trailer weight but these composite materials are more expensive and add cost to the final product. Another reason for price difference from one trailer to another could be the features and options found in RV’s.
The creature comforts that are available as optional items make your RV as comfortable and convenient as your home but those options come at an added cost. When comparing the pricing of RV’s from one brand to another and one dealer to another it is in your best interest to make sure you are comparing like-qualities, features, and options. All though floor plans and size are important it is imperative that you also understand the quality and options of the prospective RV’s for you and your family to ensure you are getting the best overall value and not just the cheapest RV available.
As a rule of thumb, keep this in mind; generally if two RV’s appear to be the same but one is cheaper quite often it is cheaper for a reason. It is important to understand why one is cheaper than the other. Our sales team is very knowledgeable with the differences in not only with what we sell but various other RV brands in the industry.
For seasonal campers who are not interested in towing their trailer and prefer to just leave it at a seasonal campground will be pleased to know that we will deliver and set up your trailer for you, at your campground! If you have already picked out your seasonal campsite we will tow it, block it, and set up your plumbing.
The Fall can be the best time of the year to purchase an RV. However, supplies can be limited and you may have to settle for a floor plan that is less than ideal to save a few bucks. If a dealership has past model year inventory at the end of the season, they would be more likely to sell at a lower cost. We caution customers not to settle for a unit that is less than ideal for their needs, to save money.
Attending an RV Show can be a great idea for those who know what they want to buy as well as those who are new to the RV lifestyle.
Any good RV dealership should be able to give you a fair deal on the perfect RV for you and your family any time of the year.
We most definitely take trade-ins of all kinds, on new and pre-owned RV’s that we have in stock. We even take trades that are not RV’s such as, cars, trucks, snowmobiles, ATV’s, boats, etc. Trading something in towards a new or pre-owned RV has its benefits. You do not have to go through the hassle of trying to privately sell. There are also tax savings associated with trading in. For more details or a free trade evaluation contact our sales associates.
Putting a value to a trade in that both the customer and us are happy with can be a challenge. There are a lot of factors that determine the value of a pre-owned trade. For example, age, condition, floor plans, sizes, quality levels, brands all have an impact on the final value of a price. There is also trade in pricing guides as well as standard depreciation formulas to assist us in coming up with a value for your trade.
This is something we take very seriously. Matching the correct trailer for the tow vehicle is one of the most important aspects of towing a trailer. This is more than just making sure you don’t exceed the capabilities of your tow vehicle. This is more about the safety of your family and everyone else on the road. We have in house towing experts on staff to make sure that the trailer you will be towing is within the towing capacity of your tow vehicle. For a free tow vehicle evaluation please contact our sales department
No, vehicles are rated for their towing capacity by the manufacturer of the vehicle. While certain vehicle modifications will make for a better towing experience they will not increase the amount that the vehicle is capable of towing.
Most trailers have electric brakes and require a brake controller installed in the tow vehicle. Certain trailer / Vehicle combinations would also require weight distribution for a safe tow. Most trailers are wider than the tow vehicles and also require towing mirrors. Fortunately we have an entire service bay dedicated to the preparation of tow vehicles. Contact our service department for more information.
In this day and age it is very tempting and common to buy a lot of things online. However, when buying an RV there are so many variables that it only makes sense to seek professional help to choose the right RV. Variables such as motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, and dozens of floor plans in each can make it an overwhelming process. For this reason, we have many sales professionals that are here to help you from start to finish during your RV shopping experience. You would start the process by meeting with one of our sales associates and informing them of your wants and needs as well as how you plan to use your new RV. From this initial meeting our sales associate will then show you a few potential units and demonstrate the features and benefits of each unit to help you make an educated decision as to which RV is right for you and your family.
To put it simply, we offer a large variety of the top rated brands in the industry.
