That price is probably good only if you finance thru them.

Thanks for all the great advice everyone!! I will definitely plan to look at some dealers in other cities nearby. Also, I have been on RV Trader and have really been able to pick out some features I want in a TT. Used definitely seems like a decent option if I can find what I want close enough to us. Thanks again!!

For a first ever RV buy used. Start small and used. The cheaper the better.

This is BY FAR the best advice !

After a couple of trips start making a list of things you would want in your next TT, assuming you don't want to just chuck the whole idea !

If you’re on Facebook and haven’t already, check out the FB page "RV Pricing and Values" before deciding and buying. Be sure and read the Pinned Post before asking questions! David may be able to help you save some $$$.

If you are looking for a TT that is head an shoulders above the rest, at the same price, there are none.

Like buying a Ford, Chevy, Ram or a host of others; each has its features and followers but in the end they all do what they are designed to do.

My advice is to rent a TT similar to what you want to buy for for a week or so. You will learn a lot before you spend the big bucks. Buy a used unit.

That is what we did.

Also, keep in mind that millions of folks use and are quite pleased with the so called "garbage" being built. The industry builds what the public will buy.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

Depends on the CW. So far, ours in Hendersonville, NC has done very well for us and our extended family.
That said, I still try to buy stuff for the camper from locally owned businesses.
