We are looking at buying a pop-up camper. We've been using the one my husband's family bought in 1969 so we think maybe it's time to upgrade. We have looked at Jayco, Fleetwood, Rockwood, Starcraft, and Viking. The Fleetwoods seem to be the most well-made but are a bit pricier than the others. We did not like the Jayco or Viking at all. We found a 2004 Fleetwood Mesa (new) and the dealer is asking $9300 which includes air, canopy, hot water heater, all the standard stuff, TT&L, and the brake system (whatever it is called). Our budget starting out was $7000-$8000. We offered them $9000 and have not budged from that. Then, he called back and said he had the same model in Oklahoma City, which was priced at $7988 plus the brake thing and TT&L, which would put it at just about $8900. Is it valid to assume he would bring the unit from OKC to Dallas and do dealer prep? Wouldn't it be easier for him to just sell us the one in Dallas for $9000? Are we reasonable? The Mesa is the same as this year's Valor. Does anyone have other suggestions? We haven't been able to find a used one. We like the size of the Mesa but have also considered the Cheyenne and Santa Fe. We rented a Tacoma last summer and it was good; the Mesa is just a bit bigger.
