Dealer Ratings

What do you think about using this "thread" to post advice/observations/warnings/suggestions/praise/recommendations about Montana Dealers?
My thought is that we could have a good reference list for repair work, warranty or non-warranty in ANY part of the country, since these are mobile entities we are using.
Sometimes, it seems, we need work NOW and it would be nice to have a listing to search for recommended &/or non-recommended dealers in any area in which we happened to be. This would put all the posts in one place for easy access.
My hope would be that we would have at least as many positive posts as negative posts, so that this would be maximally useful, but only time would tell.
I don't have a Monty yet, but service all over N. America is one thing that is tops on my list when I get one, 'cause when you need it, you need it.
Scale of 0 to 10 (0=no good, 10=excellent)
Thanks.
Larry

We have purchased two RV's from Rollin On RV in Schererville, Indiana. It is a family owned dealership that handles Keystone and Forest River products among others.

Sales - 10 Their first offer was far better than any other dealer.

Service - 10 They have fixed every issue the first time and did several other courtesy items for us as well. Sadat is the service manager and at least one MOC member works there.

In my opinion, the dealer can mean the difference between an RV manufacturer being considered great or lousy. Rollin On will sell me my next RV as well - in about six years.

Lloyd Bridges, Chelsea Michigan

Sales, 9 close to 10

Service before they got their check: 6.5

service after they got their check: 2

PLEASE NOTE: we purchased almost 3 years ago. Have not been back, so, cannot report on current service. 3 years is a long time, it could be better, it could be worse.

Will we buy from them again, probably not. Will we have them service our rig, nope.

I will give them a 10. On doing warranty service. We didn't buy from them. They have been great to us. Also a 10 on getting work done quick, and a 10 in customer service. A 10 in knowledge and experience too.
