motojavaphil Posted March 29, 2016 Report Share Posted March 29, 2016 We are slowly moving towards the purchase of a new RV, something with slides, and are leaning towards a fifth wheel configuration although nothing is ruled out. In our search I have noticed some things that would really help. I humbly make these recommendations to dealers and folks wanting to sell. If anyone would like to add to my list please feel free. 1. Advertise your price, not call for price. I know you want me to call but there is no way I will call, a definite turn off. 2. Specs, such as length, weights, slides. I cannot say how many times I have looked at something only to have more questions than answers. What is the GVWR, hitch weight? 3. Know your product! There is nothing worse than talking on the phone or visiting a dealership and either knowing more about the product than the sales or not getting information. 4. Honesty, I cannot stress this enough. People investing $1000's of dollars in a quickly depreciating asset deserve better than BS, lies or myths. Immediate reason to walk and stop all communication. 5. Dealers, screen your sales staff, train them about your product and insure they have the personality style to interact with people. We had a salesman upset because we came in to look, taking him out of the queue. Never will buy anything from that dealer! Professionalism comes to mind. 6. Advertised trucks online. I have seen dealers fail to indicate the engine, gear ratio and bed length of their supposed HD product that will be moving very heavy stuff. Certainly we can do better! Just some thoughts. I recognize some are sales ploys but I'd rather deal with someone upfront who knows their product. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
