...yes, drive, drive, drive to get to the dealer and coach selection that you want - this is a large purchase and mileage or distance or time should not keep you from the experience. yes, MHSRV south of Dallas/FtWorth is excellent - so many choices, so many floorplans models of the same coaches, etc.
Take you time, stay a few days, don't make a rushed purchase - and when you DO find and purchase the one you want, stay a few days - overnight in the coach, use the facilities, try out all the options, practice with the generator, inverter, shore power options, water pump, water heater options, and take it for a LONG test drive. They will work with you and make you happy, taking care of any issues you have or find before you leave. : )
we've purchased two coaches from them - a beautiful '15 Forest River Georgetown XL360DS(with a trade-in of a '13 Blackwood Fiv'r/Ram Truck), and later the '14 Thor Palazzo 33.3 DP(trade-in of the Georgetown)... couldn't ask for better service - would do it again in a heartbeat.
