Question,
Should a dealer be allowed to use a RV that was ordered and is on the lot waiting pickup as a sales unit to show prospective buyers?

IMHO I don't think they should without prior approval from the owner's. Now, using the term "owner" implies you have bought the unit. If you have just put $1,000 down on it and have not completed the transaction or are awaiting financing...that may be a different story. This to me would be a "gray" area but one that could be cleared up by a quick conversation with dealer. I do not imagine my dealer would do so without my consent. Again, JMHO

I go along ith tator447 on this. We did the paper work on ours and completed the contract and they locked it and put a sold sign on it prior to a show. They have to prep it and tweak some issues but technically I bought it so they took it off the market so to speak. Had I given them a couple hundred to hold it and haven't signed for it it could fall through for them so they have the right to show it IMHO.

We paid 5k down and it has been on the lot for a couple weeks and I am hoping it is locked up. Still can't figure why they were 3 weeks out to schedule a PDI.

Once you sign the bill of sale and title papers it is yours. Prior to that it is their property.

Art is right. You don't own it until the deal is complete. The dealership can do what they want until then.

However, we let people look at our unit all the time. Don't really see the difference between that and the dealership showing it. If something were to happen the dealership would have to fix/replace it any way.

Using that logic, the dealer could drag the unit to two or three shows and have hundreds trape through it.....I guess technically it isn't yours until you transfer title.

What about a new car? Same thing: Belongs to the dealer until the title is in your name.

Yup, I agree.
I guess the other side of the coin is, if you don't like them doing it.
Get back the deposit and buy another unit. Then I bet the dealer is going to claim it is your unit the day you put down the deposit and they special ordered it.
However, I own a business where I supply goods to many customers. Once they purchase it I consider it theirs. Even if I have to order it. Even when they are on a net 30 payment. I think the customer would not like it if I walked into their place at 29 days and said "hey, wheres my stuff".

I personally wouldn’t want them showing my trailer after we made a deal. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />



However I wouldn’t have a problem showing everybody the trailer myself.



??.come on in?look at my new rig!!
