Default Dealers La Mesa and Motor home specialists

Has any one dealt with either of these companies. We are going to buy our first B (used). We are talking to these two Dealers r now because they have the Roadtrek we like. One is in Alvarado TX and La Mesa has several locations. Any other hints as to the process is appreciated.

Is it the 210 Popular you're interested in?

Isn't the 210 in TX a 2015 model?

Yes. There are 2 one at each dealer. But reviews for born dealers seemed negative. I was wondering if anyone has dealt w/either. Just looking for advice. Thanks

When I read reviews, I look at why they are negative and then decide whether they will affect me.

For example, I passed on one dealer because the negative reviews said they would agree to a price and then when the customer showed up, they wouldn't honor it or they would pre-sell the RV without holding it for a customer they knew was on the way.

On the other hand, negative reviews about service were non-issues for me since I was buying from a dealer I would never return to for service.

Just be ready and willing to walk away if the deal you've agreed to isn't upheld or if the rig has issues. You can tell them you won't buy unless the issues are fixed and tell them you will stay in a local hotel for three days, but no longer. It's your money.

LaMesa (at least in FL) adds on a $1K "dealer prep fee. I got most of it back, because LaMesa had to replace all 4 tires and the inverter after the sale.

Was this a new or used coach? I assume the inverter was replaced under some warranty but who warranties tires on any RV, used or even new for that matter?

Big prep fee but it sounds like they did a thorough inspection. Thanks so much.
