:angry: I had *hoped* RV sales people where not comparable to the car salesman I have met. I went to look at an RV with my husband. We REALLY liked it, love at first site!!! The dealer proceeds to tell us everything is in excellent working order, they check everything, etc. I told him I would like to bring my mechanic (also my brother :laugh: ) to see the unit before we made any final decisions. The next day, my brother checks out the rv. Turns out, (please keep in mind I am mechnically retarded past the point of starting a car) the rv had oil in the radiator, needed all new brake lines, and was leaking tranmission fluid. There were other things too but I don't remember the specifics. My brother thinks it may have either recently blown a head gasket or was about to. As we were leaving, the salesman asked us what we thought. I told him we thought the rv was going to have serious mechanical issues soon if not now. The salesman seemed annoyed that I was armed with this knowledge. Back to the drawing board. In your experience, is it better to buy from a private owner rather than a dealership? Sorry this was so long. I am getting discouraged.
