About RV Sleuth
My name is Bill Arthur. My wife Teri and I live in Washington State, up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. (Lots of beautiful places to go camping around here!)
This site started a while back when Teri and I went shopping at an RV show. I talked to several salesmen, even the sales manager, before I realized that, yet again, the salesmen had me totally outclassed.
And why wouldn’t they? They saw people like me every day. On the other hand, I’m just a poor yokel who buys an RV once every 5-10 years.
But something changed that day. I left the RV show determined to do research and figure out the RV sales process once and for all. I’m still relatively young, and will probably need to haggle over RVs a few more times in my lifetime. (Among other things, Teri and I are planning to go fulltime soon.)
For better or worse, I get a bit obsessive when I want to learn something. Anyway, this site is the result.
My Goal: To Have the Best ‘RV Buying’
Resource on the Internet
I’m not there yet, but we’re off to a good start!
All the information here comes from research I’ve done and information I’ve obtained from RV industry insiders. Among them is a former RV dealer with 35 years of experience in the industry: we talked on the phone for over three hours, and he told me step-by-step how to buy an RV for close to, or even in some cases below, dealer cost. (And I recorded the conversation.)

Oh, and one more thing…
If you use the info on this site to save money on an RV, please tell me about it! It will make my day. I’d love to add you to my list of RVers who have saved thousands!
Have fun RVing!
