We have narrowed down our choice and are getting everything ready to purchase...hoping to make a deal here in Florida. Surprisingly, there are very few AS dealers near the Orlando area. We had chosen one but were stopped in our tracks when we heard 2 things that have happened recently regarding this AS dealer. (not sure if I should post the name, but I would tell anyone in a private post to beware) First, several longtime sales associates quit recently because they had not received commission checks due them for several months. Ouch! Second, friends drove their brand new Class C off the dealership property, were on a major highway (RT 4) when their transmission went out. This was within 30 minutes! The dealer refused to help them, said it was a "warranty issue". They were forced to call a tow truck and were told that the problem would take 3 weeks to fix. They have a lawyer now working with them, but such aggravation to deal with when all you want to do is go RVing and have fun.
It's always a challenge to know where to buy large purchases of any type. Many sales associates will tell you anything to get the deal done. I don't take plunking down nearly 100K lightly, but I don't want to be so cautious that I never go ahead with our plan. I realize "glitches" happen, but Is there any way that owners can share good/bad dealer experiences?

I'd second that recommendation for JD Sanders, asking for Ben or Ritchie. Joe

The Sanders are good folks. We bought new 2005 Safari from them. We also bought a new 2015 Flying Cloud from Dixie in DeFuniak Springs. I would also recommend them, but DeFuniak is a log way from Orlando.

I would give JD Sanders two thumbs up. Traded our 25 for a 11 month old 30' Classic and had warranty work done there.
