Purchase from factory?

Has anyone here purchased directly from the Thor factory? I am looking at purchasing a Quantum PD31 this year, if the price and experience has been good with other RV folks I am willing to make the trip to Indiana. I'm not a big fan of CW which has bought up about every dealership here in Virginia. Luckily there is a local RV repair only facility in Fredericksburg with pretty good reviews for repair work if needed.

Thor does not sell factory direct.

You can purchase close to the factory at Total Value RV. They are the closest dealer to the factory. A few owners on here have purchased from them and have reported well (we did not purchase from them). Now that I've mentioned it I'm sure a few will pop on here describing their experience.

Purchasing from them means your new RV will only have a few miles on it when you pick it up as well.

After having the experience of buying a large fiver new and the lack of support from that manufacturer, I'm never going that route again.

However, if someone simply "has to have" a new unit I would think buying from a dealer in northern Indiana would be worth it. I really don't want to buy a new coach in Florida that has 1300 miles on it by a transporter. I've seen some of these guys blasting down the road at 80mph pulling a toad or trailer. No thanks, if I'm paying for a new RV I would like to break it in a little differently for the first 2,000 miles or so.

Drove to Elkhart from central VA last month to pick up our new rig from Total Value. Very pleased with the deal and the dealer. Stayed out there for the factory tour and to sightsee. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
