On Monday, I plan to travel to Birmingham to visit one of our clinical sites and will also make a day of it RV shopping-wise.
First stop is Bankston Motorhomes in Montgomery. This is a dealership I have visited several times but now, I'm ready to buy. The salesman I was working with (who never took me seriously) is no longer there. That's OK because some say that a chummy seller-buyer relationship always costs the buyer money.
I spoke with someone else at Bankston last week and was told that their inventory is down at the moment due to the appearance of the 2012 models. BUT .... there is an elderly couple with a 2002 B+ that are considering a consignment sale. She had little information beyond that ("um, a Dynamax .... maybe?") but promised to call the couple for details. She also promised a follow-up call the next day but I never heard back.
Next, I plan to stop at Camping World followed by another dealer visit in the same neighborhood. Although neither place has much available at the moment.
Here's an example of the size/floorplan I'm looking for. Small enough for one, big enough for two.
I'm scouring the internet, of course, and am still hoping to find something suitable nearby. Any purchase would necessitate at least 2 trips: one look-see and one pick-up. Of course, I'll have plenty of time for that sort of thing come December.
Not sure if it's my imagination but everyone's used inventory seems low right now - even Ebay's.
I remain optimistic.
