Q. Why do prices vary from one dealership to another?
A. RV Dealerships are different than wholesalers, which can operate under different rules regarding pricing. Without service departments and less customer focus, wholesalers have unique benefits regarding pricing, but often come up short on their customer service and customer satisfaction. RV dealerships often use the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price MSRP as their price point. and each dealership has flexibility based on the unit's purchasing price from the manufacturers. As with any product, there is a markup from the manufacturer to the dealership price based on a number of variable factors. RV units also come with an incredible number of options based on the RVers intended camping use of the RV including boondocking or off-grid packages, solar charging and battery upgrades, and a number of other options similar to auto purchases to keep in mind when reviewing your new or used RV purchase price.

- Remove your truck tailgate and plastic bed liner - If left on, our RV Technicians will remove and attempt to place your tailgate in your truck camper or vehicle, but this is not advised. This could lead to potential damage to your truck camper, your vehicle or the truck bed door in transit. Additionally, when placing the truck camper in your truck bed, if a plastic liner insert exists it creates a dangerous situation as it could mar your truck camper and cause it to move around while in transit. We recommend a rubber bed liner to maintain the bed and ensure a safely situated truck camper.
Q. Why does it take so long to get my new RV? When I've purchased a vehicle from a dealership, it takes less than half a day to drive off with my new vehicle!
A. When picking up your new or used travel trailer or truck camper, there are many factors which lead to a longer than expected experience at Princess Craft of another RV dealership:
- Packages & Add-Ons - The type of unit, appliances and add-ons being installed are the major factors which contribute to the time it takes to get your unit prepared.
- Pre-Delivery Inspection - This process which starts in the days prior to your pickup with our PDI or Pre-Delivery Inspection occurring, is completed only when we have your tow vehicle or truck to confirm all connections and hook-ups are operating as expected.
- RV Demand - Interest in purchasing new RVs has skyrocketed across the industry and we are doing our best to keep up with demand at Princess Craft. RV manufacturers are also doing their best to keep up with varying shortages and production delays, which impact RV dealerships and customers directly.
