Why buying an from an RV Dealership means NOTHING!

No you should not be hesitant. Do or do not, there is no hesitation. To paraphrase my boyhood next door neighbor, Yoda Stepanek. You didn’t know Yoda was Czech? Well he was.

#2: I don't believe any new vehicle I ever purchased was warranted by the actual dealer. For my truck, the warranty is from Ford Motor Co., not Sunset Hills Ford.

#3: The manufacturer wanting to move the case to the state where they operate from is quite common.

Okay, I shouldn't weigh in because I haven't watched the YT video. I wouldn't give them the satisfaction of garnering an extra "view". So, I may be way off-base with the following thoughts and I apologize in advance if I am.

Not having watched, I can only address the topic which appears to be people who are INSANE (sorry to shout, I'm just quoting) to buy from an RV Dealership. IMO crazy or not is irrelevant in the case of Escape because you are dealing direct with the manufacturer not an RV Dealership.

That direct access communication, in a nutshell, is the overriding, exceptional, reassuring reason why we are choosing an Escape. It's a privilege and a pleasure to be speaking direct to an RV manufacturer and working with them, directly, to craft a personalized RV.

Call me INSANE if you will.
