One thing I learned in startup-land: the faster you get to "No" the better so you can focus on the next potential "Yes". The only thing worse than "No" is "Maybe." That's why you thank people when they say "No."

As Foiled-Again noted, this salesperson doesn't seem to have learned that yet.

Friend of mine wore "normal" clothing.. Rubber boots, suspended overalls and khaki long sleeve shirt. Drove a beater truck. He was 59 years my senior.. I was 21 he was 70. We drive to then walked into a Ford dealership around 10AM. By 10:15AM papers were signed, money changed hands (cash) and we drove out in a new truck.

I learned a lot from Mr. Fred,,, thank you, Sir!

Peace and Blessings..

Good God I've never seen behavior quite like that. My family's in boat sales so same cast different script but I can't say I've seen a dealer act like that. I've heard of it, but only from shady used car dealerships.

Also I second Colonial AS and just once again must plug Toscano RV in Los Banos (about an hour south of San Jose AFTER TRAFFIC lol). They're not nearly the size of Colonial but they've always been great to me and everyone I've sent there. (Plus through family I'm well aware of dealer cost on every AS model so I've always paid a fair price. And the one thing they have on Colonial is they definitely give a better trade in value).
