Default Purchase

I have e mailed Trailmanor and asked for a local dealer. They do not have any in stock . I asked if they were going to be at Atlantic City RV Show with a rep now answer. If I can not find one local and Trailmanor Company will not be at any shows . My options are done. I think we will look at something else.

I had the exact same problem. I live near Virginia Beach and the nearest dealer was almost 6 hours away. So, I looked at a lot of youtube videos but found that I wanted to see one in person. I went out to the TM website and found that there is an owners area that shows where chapters are. http://home.comcast.net/~tmtrailblazers/

I contacted my local area and was put in touch with an owner less than 15 miles from me. The owners were kind enough to spend more than an hour showing me their trailer and telling my wife and I all about what it was like to own a TM. My 2015 is now on order. I would encourage you to try to do the same.

Thank You. We were on vacation for 4 weeks and during a bad storm I was setting up my pop up the people that were next to us had a Trailminor. They set up in no time and when they pulled out in the morning we could not get over how much time they save. Wonderful product hard to purchase one.

Campersam, let us know where you are. There may be someone in your area that could show you theirs. This forum is filled with friendly people, who, if they knew you were nearby, may offer to show you their TM.

Do you know what size you may be interested in? That would be a start.

It's worth the hunt and the little frustration. If you were in Ohio, I would be happy to show you my TM. But I'm sure there are people in PA, NJ, NY, CT area that will offer to have you look at their's. This may give you a change to see the various models and lengths. I would put up a post "Would like to look at a TM in the PA/NJ/NY/CT area" Most owners have much pride in their TM's and enjoy sharing it.

We joined this form to get our questions answered and understand the pro and cons. Then we had to travel about 200 miles to find a dealer that had two TM's and we liked them. After we found what we were looking for we traveled 600 miles to buy one. After buying our TM, I have seen several post where TM owners have showed other people their TM's. Wish I would have know this when we first wanted to see one. It would have saved 400 miles of travel.

First year of use: We are very happy with our 25 nights under the stars and about 8K miles under tow.

I know what you mean, we really had no intention of buying a new one but for months I kept checking the website for the one dealer in GA just in case a used one popped up. Dealer was a large RV place in the Atlanta area and I don't think they ever showed more than a couple in stock.

I just went out to rvtrader.com and looked in PA for TMs. There are only 3 used ones. That might be a good place to start if you have not done that. There is one new 2014 at Snydersrv in Salem, VA (a 2720QB) that they advertise for $22,999 that you might want to go look at. The dealer I ordered mine though (Buddy Gregg RV in Knoxville, TN) has 3 new 2015 ones as well.

I have a family member who lives in Ohio!
I have asked dealers if they go to shows or have a rep there to answer questions. Nothing----- not a thing---- So my wife and I found a 2007 3124KS and we are going to look at it Saturday. The dealer has had it from last year. They took it on a trade and nobody knows about Trailmanor!!! We found people that had one on our trip and lust loved it. If Trailmanor would start to show people what they have it would take off. I can not tell you the cost of pulling a fifth wheel with a truck / Acadia with a pop up = Big savings and I do not have to keep a truck! Come on Trailmanor get it together owners are more help than the people that make them. If I was going to visit someone to see Trailmanors I would meet up with the owners and meat everyone than going to the factory. That is the real backbone of the company. Good honest people that like the product and help people that know nothing like me. We have owned campers for 35 years now. We started with pop up and got a trailer and got bigger trailers and then got fifth wheels. The Trailmanor ie in a class by itself!

Also show up on CraigsList just have seen some dealer spam the same unit in multiple locations Can tell after a while. Often a dealer who does not want it can be a great place to make a deal though wonder how someone who does not know them can warrant one.

Is the dealer a Camping World franchise? They have some incredible tie-ins with the Good Sam club.
