They're like car dealers, none of them are really THAT good.

PPL motorhomes has a huge used inventory selection. Worth a look can get 2 yr old units at big discount.

PPL all day! Good people, large selection, wide range of sizes and styles. Great service and parts folks as well. I purchased my travel trailer there. Family members have purchased several motorhomes there as well. A bit of a drive for you but well worth it. Good luck!

I would NEVER go to a dealer for an RV. Some people only use them 2-4 times a year. You can find an 7-10yr old trailer in almost mint condition on Craigslist for waaaay cheaper than any dealer. I just drove from Austin with a sweet 32' North Trail. Its a 2011 almost mint. Stove burners never even lit. Good luck

Genuine rv in Nacodoches had great service and the best deal in the state if they sell the brand you want. Made the deal over the phone with no hidden costs or markup.

Craigslist is a joke these days to many scams. I have been looking myself I won’t buy a new one for the lease.

It will also go to Yogi and the out of town jobs.
Not looking for a second home just something nice enough for the wife. Biggest factor for her is a full size bathtub

I’ve purchased from lone star rv, the salesman was Gordon or something like that. He didn’t try to up sell or lie to me to tell me my truck could handle bigger. I knew what my truck was capable of and asked him some trick questions to see if they were the types to try to get me into something unreasonable , but he wasn’t. They were easy to negotiate with when I bought. I’ve never used their service so I’m not sure if they are good in that department.

They have been great for parts. I have not bought a camper from them.

Bought this 2015 36 Avenger with 2 slides for 12.5 last year on CL. I sold it last week for 15.5 only cuz I wanted something a bit lighter. In my experience RVs are really marked up at dealerships. It's something that in many cases is used seasonally and can be found almost new from an owner...cheap. Just have to be patient and they pop up often on Craig's List.
