RV Shopping

Updated 6/3/17 – Click Here to go to my trailer ratings page and short list.

Dealerships:

  • Rollingretreats.com: If I was to buy a used DRV fifth wheel, or maybe new, I’d start looking here. (10/8/14)
  • RVs for Less: Claim to be #1 DRV dealer.
  • Kansas RV Center: Specialize in fulltime rigs (12/21/14)
  • RV Wholesalers: Might get a quote here after rig selection. They also claim to have a nationwide service network. Here is a link where a guy reports paying $20,000 less for a Heartland Landmark than other bids. (7/20/15)
  • Haylett Auto and RV in Michigan: Produce some of my favorite trailer walk-throughs. (10/20/16) 11949870832001967505estrella_01_svg_thumb
  • General RV: Is the largest family owned dealership in the country with 11 locations in 5 states.  Wonder if that would make it easier for repair in that you would have bought it from them. (2017)
  • RVs For Less Dealership: A blog follower posted an awesome comment about the dealership. They sell DRV and Heartland Landmarks. They were easy to deal with and the couple stayed two nights in the dealerships RV lot checking everything out. They are located in Knoxville, Tenn. Which happens to be a nice place to vacation.
  • RV Nations: Appears to have good pricing on Forest River Cedar Creek and maybe lessor models of Heartland brands. (12/16/16)
  • Lakeshore RV: In west Michigan has a large selection of Bighorns and Montana. They claim no one will beat them on price. (4/2/17)
  • RV Outlet USA: Has some good pricing on Keystone Montana’s, especially the full paint legacy editions. They also stock Heartland Bighorn and Big Country. (2/8/17)
  • Lamesa RV: Multi-state dealership. Pricing looks good (8/27/15)
  • Campers Inn: Another dealership with multiple locations. I heard about it from a forum member who bought their Vilano fifth wheel here. (2016)
  • RVingPlanet.com: Claims to have all the floor plans and units in one location. Good way to check out floor plans. (1/1/17)
  • Pete’s RV: Is a wholesaler with three national locations to include Indiana. Readers say they are awesome to work with.  Sell many major brands to include Keystone, Heartland and Lower Level Forest River. And they have a service center and honor all warranties. Could this take the place of a local dealer? (7/18/17)
