It was an OTD price and all lines add up proper! We even closed with the providing a hitch, equalizer. Think we did good. Now to just set up a delivery date and get thru the pre delivery done and done proper. So far a good experience. Fingers crossed.

Do not sign until ALL issues you may find are repaired. Yhe old "bring it back and we will fix it" usually results in scheduling 1-2 months down the road and possible delays after it is brought back. Amazing how they can fix issues quickly if a buyer refuses to sign until those issues are repaired.

Remember, in general, RV dealers make car dealers look like choir boys.

By delivery, do you mean deliver the RV to you as in you're not driving there and picking it up?

They have their deposit or earnest money. Reckon, I'd wait until PDI, all repairs, etc are complete (you know since they don't repair sht UNTIL someone buys it, there's a reason for that btw).
Then cut the check, hand them a bag of money or finalize the loan with them, however you're paying for it, and sign any paperwork at that time.

You're doing well by being cautious and I'd continue to do so. I'd also be towing it home myself. Then you can make sure brakes etc work before leaving with it too.

"stock number" doesn't a mean a thing!
check and record the VIN number

I special ordered my travel trailer at a dealership and also had a lot of upgrades added. I got a larger ac unit and fridge, a hot rod installed for electric hot water and special upholstery. I put 1,000 down and didn't sign any loan papers. When the travel trailer arrived at the dealership, I did the walkthrough. Then, I went to the bank and signed the loan papers authorizing them to pay the dealership and took delivery on the trailer.

i agree with the signing after all is done, completed etc. right before you take it home. Please take some time, you mentioned you only saw it once. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE SOME TIME AND GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS AS IF YOU ARE LIVING IN IT, sit on the toilet, brushing your teeth,go to the fridge, get in and out of bed, watch tv etc, etc, etc. I missed some things on a unit a few years back and traded it in within a month of owning it. Good Luck & Be Safe !!!

Deal is complete. I am very happy with the dealer. Lazy Days in Tampa. Very relaxed and did everything and anything I asked for! They had no set agenda to control the setting or our time. As the saying goes. We are happy campers!
