From the Author
My thinking in writing this book was simple, help more people join the great RV lifestyle without having to go through all the hassles that are part of the normal buying process. It will help you both understand what your looking to buy, how it will fit your needs, and how to get rid of the hype and misinformation that is the RV buying process. After learning how to control the buying process, I'll teach you the tricks of winning the negotiating phase of the purchase. There is NO reason you can't buy ANY RV at a discounted price, if you understand how the system works and know what to expect along the way. Since I wrote the first edition almost two years ago, I've gotten hundreds of thank you letters from readers who followed the system to a happy ending. If I'm guilty of anything, it's of writing in what I call a "all the facts…without the fluff" format …no pretty pictures…just concise information written to save you hassles and money and get you out there enjoying the great RV lifestyle, not in a showroom fighting a sales person.

From providing insight of the selection process to understanding dealer cost factors, he shares all with those wanting "more for less." His popular "all the facts without the fluff" approach is refreshing and easy to follow. While helping you cut through the sales hype he gives you the information dealers hate for you to know.

If you are reading this guide, you are likely preparing to take a big step forward in your life by joining the many millions of others who enjoy the RV lifestyle. To truly enjoy this lifestyle, you must first have the means to seek out your dream destinations - an RV. At first thought, you might say, "No big deal. I'll just go buy something and hit the road. "Hold that thought!! This can very well be your first step towards a nightmare that is repeated day in and day out in every corner of North America. Simply put…MOST RVers sign on the bottom line without getting the best deal they could have. These people envision an RV as their ticket to adventure and serenity. And with this lofty dream in mind, they walk blindly into an RV dealership - so consumed by their dream that they ignore one stark reality: that without the proper knowledge of what they are doing they can easily, and inadvertently, hand over way too much of their hard-earned money to someone who may not have their best interest in mind. The purpose of this guide is to prepare you to make an informed purchase. Unlike automobiles, there are literally hundreds of RV manufacturers building a mind boggling number of brands. Most offer dozens of floor plans in each brand. With the help of this guides funnel approach, you'll be able to determine what is right for you. And then - and only then - the "insider secrets" will provide you with the ammunition you'll need to negotiate a fair price. Buying an RV is not just about what you pay for it. It's about making sure that you get what you pay for and that what you get is what you need. Buying large ticket items has always been something you should approach with both eyes open, and knowledge afore hand. I hope in your reading of this guide, that we can open you eyes wide in understanding the buying process…before you open your checkbook. Good Luck and Good Shopping - Bob"
