RV dealers are the link that the RV manufacturer has with the public and the buyers of their products.
RV dealers can be found around the corner, in the next town, or online.
There is a need for RV dealers to promote, sell, and provide customer service for potential RV owners and current owners because of the continuous popularity of the RVs among old and young alike.
Types Of RV Dealers
- Sometimes the dealer is a wholesaler, with no middleman in between. These RV dealers are often “hand selected” to promote a certain make of RV. They may offer makes from other dealers on a limited basis or as used RVs, but the main focus is on the single manufacturer.
- Another kind of RV dealers are the type that offers a number of different models from a number of different manufacturers.
- Still others may focus only on used makes and models. Whatever dealer you choose to purchase your new or used RV campers, you should feel comfortable and satisfied with the level of service that you receive.
You need to do little homework, when you decided to purchase motor home (Used Motor Homes) from a RV dealer. The following are the important things of consideration, while purchasing motor home from RV dealers.
Tips for Choosing RV Dealer
- Find out the background of the RV dealer. Sometimes, RV dealers are sold and the great customer support that used to be there under the previous ownership disappears when the new owners take over. So be careful when dealerships have changed hands not too long ago.
- Give a call to the local Better business Bureau and ask about the number of complaints filed against a RV dealer. It will be a good decision to choose another RV dealer, if there are several complaints.
- Take the advice and recommendations of an experienced RV and motorhome owners in the area. There may be local RV clubs that can help you learn more about the dealers in your area.
- If all else checks out like you want, make a visit to the RV dealer and just walk through the lot and service area to get your impression of the way they run their business. It could be a sign that the RV dealer doesn't have the best service personnel if they seem to have only a few service techs and they don't look very busy. So even if they take your coach in and try to fix it you could be making several returns just to have the same problem repaired.
- Also just see how you feel about the overall impression that you are left with at that RV dealer. Sometimes, it's something that we can't even quantify, but if you just don't get a good feeling there, it may be a good idea to look elsewhere.
One of the common complaints in the industry is that RV dealers are much more interested in selling you their recreational vehicle than keeping it serviced properly after the sale.
But you can help minimize these problems by doing some advance homework before they arise by choosing RV dealers that will continue to support your motorhome long after the sale is completed.
