A lot of customers have brought up this concern around this time each year. Why should you buy in the fall or winter? The answer isn’t a simple one because they are frankly a lot of great reasons to buy this time of year. Here are a few of those things to carefully consider.
Most dealerships will drastically reduce their inventory during the slower “off season” months by as much as 50%. It saves them on overhead expenses during the months that aren’t as busy. We are unique in that we don’t do that. When you come by our lot in January it is nearly as full as in July. Why would we do something that is against the norm? Because of you, our customers. You should be able to shop any time of year and find a great selection of RVs for you or your family. If we cut back our inventory then you wouldn’t have access to dozens of floor plans and models that we carry.
Another reason we do that is because thousands of workers at our manufacturers’ plants need to keep working through the year. If dealers don’t order RVs then the manufacturers have to shut down production. As an added bonus, those manufacturers give us incentives to lower the cost of the RVs. That is additional savings that we pass right on to you.
A common concern for our customers is also their budget. You worked hard to have the ability to travel the country in your RV. You want to get the most value for your dollar and rightfully so. A big perk of buying this time of year is savings. As I mentioned before, the manufacturers offer incentives for us to order RVs and keep production flowing. Many times these incentives are on the out-going model year. Why, you ask? They know that like with any retail environment we need to move the older inventory to make room for the new ones we order. This often times equates to as much as hundreds, or in many cases thousands of dollars off of an already deeply discounted price. Saving you not only on the initial cost of your RV but also your taxes and finance charges. That can add up to a lot of money back in your pocket.
How many times have you gone to shop for an RV and they didn’t have just what you wanted? Once? Twice? Dozens of times? It can really be a struggle to find the right one to suit your wants and needs. Even worse is when you have shopped in the late winter or very early spring time to find what you need for the upcoming camping season. We can always order it for you no matter what part of the year it is. The trouble is at that time or year if we don’t have what you want it will likely take 8-16 weeks to get it for you. That could be the difference between enjoying the entire camping season or just a bit of it. Keep in mind, a lot of parks and resorts are only open during the peak months from the spring to the fall.
Our customers enjoy the benefit of getting a proper delivery when they choose to buy from us. Whether its a new or used RV we go through the same process. We thoroughly inspect every RV doing any necessary maintenance and repairs that each unit needs. Everything you need to take it camping right away is prepared from the LP tanks being filled to a starter kit in the RV ensuring you have all of the essentials to hit the road. Finally, before each RV leaves you get a comprehensive orientation from one of our trained technicians. This way you can be confident that when you go camping you know where to find and how to operate everything.
What is different this time of year is that many people won’t get to use it right away. Sometimes it may be months. In those cases we will simply winterize the RV to eliminate the chance of any plumbing getting damaged during freezing conditions. We will also postpone the orientation until closer to time for use. A few weeks or so before your first camping trip just set an appointment with us to walk you through the ins and outs of your RV.
So how does all of this benefit you?
* You have a great selection to help you find the right RV for you.
* If we need to order you one this time of year it will be here in plenty of time to enjoy the entire camping season.
* When you already have your RV you can plan ahead, make reservations at desirable locations, and know that you are already prepared with your RV.
* Additional incentives save you money in many ways and saving you money is always good.
* We can set your first payment as far out as 90 days. So right now you wouldn’t have a payment for the rest of this year.
* We will do an orientation whenever you are close to your first camping trip to make sure the knowledge is fresh in you mind.
Savings, selection, and fully prepared for the next camping season. This is why so many people take advantage of our fall specials. It truly is the best time to buy an RV.
