Factory stores are no cheaper than independent dealers.
When a trailer manufacturer owns a factory store they still have all the same overhead costs that an independent dealer would have. This includes buying or leasing a building with land, staffing, equipment, tools, insurance, & utilities. Factory stores with “factory direct pricing” is an illusion. They can actually be more expensive since they have to absorb more of these “fixed costs” on their one product line. Also, independent dealers are typically locally owned, keeping your money in your community!
