    Price increase

    Just received a call from the salesman who made the order for our new GD Momentum 395MRS. He is telling us that with the increase in price from GD, that the Momentum price has gone up roughly $10,000! Now our Momentum is due to come off the line on May 3 (Monday). Now our agreed upon price is no longer valid and we will have to pay the additional money if we want the Momentum! We do have paperwork stating the price we agreed upon when ordering, but wanted to see if anyone else who had ordered their Momentum had this issue. We placed our order the first of Feb. and was give May 3 date of completion. Where do we stand with this order? My thoughts are NOT to pay the increase and see what happens. We did put a large deposit down when we ordered and this is to be a cash deal. Is this even legal? Need some advice please! Also, the dealer knew we would be paying cash for the RV and we put down a $10,000 deposit. Our Momentum 395M was ordered on Feb. 10, so well before the price increases came about. This is a dealership in Arkansas. I have posted this on Facebook GD Momentum page, just wanted to see if anyone else has run into this situation? Thanks.

    Price increase

    The dealer can be as unscrupulous as he wants and sounds like that is the way he wants to go
    If you signed a Bill of sale is best but even if you just placed a deposit still is a legal offer
    An offer,acceptance and consideration is binding
    But how far do you want to take it with such a crap dealer?

    Well like I said the dealer doesnít have a leg to stand on and I would be firm with them but if they still say the old deal is void I guess retaining a lawyer will be needed
    That is why I asked how far you want to take it
    Do you have a signed agreement?

    It’s a big lie period. The price on your unit did not increase. They are straight up trying to steal from you.

    This will probably be of interest to you....

    Notice>> 7% price increase effective today. All retail ordered units in their system are price protected, but moving forward, everything is now 7% higher.

    I would be calling Grand Design and asking them to reach out to your dealer.

    Yeah, an offer signed and deposit cashed should lock in the price. Don't budge unless you're willing to hold the dealer in breech of your written agreement which in most states should then require a refund in full of all deposits paid.

    There's no such thing as "no refund" if they're not abiding to the letter of the agreement.

    I thought once a sold unit order - i.e., with a customer name on it - was placed, GD holds the price at the time of order. Now if you are buying a unit the dealer had ordered for retail stock that may be a different animal unless there's an agreement with a down-payment.

    Contacting GD may be your best option. IMO, the dealer is trying to "push you out" of the deal so he can sell it to someone else for more than he sold it to you for. You will need to fight to hold on to your position in this rig. The rig went into production because you created a demand for it. The dealer used your funds to secure this order. Backing out of the deal is exactly what the dealer wants you to do. Your choice, Fight or Flee. God's blessings, Frank.
