As I mentioned in my first posting, I am moving up from a TT to a MH. My wife and I have settled on a 36' Journey. We are wondering where to purchase it, as we live in NC. And also, if people are so inclined, as to what we ought to pay for it. I've talked to 2 dealers and they have given me a price of $139,000 to $140,000. I was hoping to drop that significantly. Any suggestions? I have a unique situation in that I will be leaving shortly (with the new Journey) and not returning to NC for a year and a half. Service, while extremely important, will have to be done throughout the nation, not necessarily by the dealer I purchase it from.

I do hope I'm not asking any personal questions, but if I am, then please excuse me.

I'm wondering what dealers in the Southeast (or east of the Mississippi) that you might recommend?

Thanks

i can't recommend a dealer but i can recommend a journey. our 2006 is great, i think the base price is 168,ooo so depending on the options you choose minus 25 to 28%? 140,000 or so out the door sounds pretty good. good luck, Don

We bought ours from Cullum and Maxey in Nashville. Excellent dealer and excellent service. They take care of their customers. I would buy another one from them tommorrow. Give them a call and ask for WD and tell him Steve and Joy sent you.

We purchased our 2006 Adventurer from Lazy Days in Seffner, FL. After delivery we stayed in their delivery campsite for three days while a number of different techs fixed various bugaboos in the rig. (The most important of which as the replacement of a non working microwave.) They also installed our Dish TV receiver and did a number of other installations for free. When the accountant /closer (?) refused to honor a $2,000 rebate offer that the sales man (Dave Mercer) had made, he got chewed out in our presence by a VP(?) (Mr. Ward) "This is not the way we do business here" he yelled at the poor accountant. We would buy from them again. The price we paid for a special order Adventurer delivered in November last year was about 74% of MSRP.

Hope this helps

Hello DBrown,Congratulations on your decision to purchase a Journey MH. I happen to have one of those Journeys also, and we love it. As for a reputable dealer, I would strongly recommend Harberson Swanston RV in Hudson, FL. We have purchased 4 MH's from them over the past 12 years and we have been completely satisfied with them, both from a sales and service perspective. They are friendly, professional, and I have also found them honest. Drop by and see them, you can tell them Jarvis sent you. Happy RVing to you. Best wishes, J. Wood

Bill Plemmons RV in Winston-Salem sells Winnebago. I've heard good things about them and we did talk with them when we were searching for a rig...they were helpful.

We bought ours from General RV and the last 2 before it. I also liked the way Cullum & Maxey operated in Nashville. We looked there on the way to Florida and I loved the "no pressure" sales tactics.

Ended up getting it in Michigan because they matched the lowest internet price I brought in AND more importantly, they have a good service department that worked very well with me on the last 2 coaches.

I can also speak well of General RV in Michigan. Although I bought my used MH from a different dealer, they have been very helpful in obtaining parts for me. Very friendly people and seem to be customer oriented.

As you are planning a long trip away from the dealer, it really makes little difference. As with all new MH's you should plan on spending some time at a repair facility someplace to correct the warranty issues you are bound to find. I would plan that trip to take you somewhere near the factory and schedule a stop.

We purchased our 2004 Adventurer from College Park RV in Raleigh, NC. They have been in business since back in the 60's and have a lot of repeat business. Good service over the past tow plus years and if I were to purchase another Winnebago product I would get it from these folks. Tim and Jamie Taylor(father/son) are both well qualified to give you a good price.

Good luck with your decision on dealers. The Journey is a beautiful coach.
