Dandy RV in Anniston AL can't tell the truth!

Carrollton, Alabama 12 comments

We bought a used RV "as is" from Dandy RV in Anniston AL three years ago knowing it had some stuff that needed fixing.A bad title wasn't one of them, however.

After owning it a year and not receiving the title, we got a letter saying we needed to get it inspected by a police officer to verify the vin number. We tried several different officers, local, county and state, and none could do it. They told us it had to go back to GA where it was titled before and they would straighten it out. We contacted Dandy RV where we bought it from, and they said they would do whatever was required to make it right.

They said they would help us out on the gas since we lived so far away, 150 miles. Due to a engine failure, we had to wait another year before we could take it to them. They again told us they would help out on the gas, pay one way of the trip for us. We carried the motor home to them and left it for two weeks for them to get it inspected.

When we went back to get it, we were told, "No gas. We put $40 in to take it to GA and back and we're not putting any more in." It took more than $40 of gas for them to go there and back! And if that lie wasn't big enough, we asked them about a used RV that they had listed on their website. We were considering trading up to a newer, larger model.

It was listed for $10,000 on the web site, they said they would trade with us for $14,000! Liars and cheats I tell you! I would not recommend buying anything from these folks! Oh, we got our title three weeks after we got back home.

I've never done business with ANY dealer that doesn't check a title against the vin on a vehicle BEFORE they take it in on trade or try to sell it.They may have a big fancy lot and showroom, but the people running it are not very smart or just want your money.

DANDY SOLD ME A SPORTSMEN 2505 AND TOLD ME IT NEEDED A ROOF PATCH AND THEY TOOK CARE OF IT AND FIXED IT.LITTLE DID WE KNOW THEY JUST PUT DUCT TAPE ON THE ROOF AND CALLED IT FIXED.

THEY ARE A TERRIBLE DEALER TO GO TO.I WOULD NOT TRUST THEM WITH MY LAWN MOWER!

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO TO OPELIKA RV, THEY ARE TRUSTWORTHY!

Dandy RV in Oxford has been great!They performed a factory warranty repair for me for a model/manufacturer they don't even carry.

I can't say enough nice things about them.

When it come to used RV purchases, though, I think every transaction, whether with a dealer or through private channels should be handled as "buyer beware".Admittedly, it would be difficult to spot a lot title issue, though.

Good to know that this is an issue.I assume when you buy "As Is" you also aren't guaranteed that the title is clear?

If so then lesson learned.

If not then Dandy should have had that settled before the unit was sold.Which is it?

Customer service was not what I had expected at Dandy RV.The PDI guy

in the service department was horrible.

Rude and fast talking. When you ask a question, it made him irritated. Felt like cattle being herded thru. Was really suprised by this.

This was our 2nd unit and probably our last.Salesman never even thanked us.

DANDY RV IS THE WORST RV DEALER IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA.NOT ONLY DO THEY RIP YOU OFF, THEY ALSO HAVE VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

EVERYONE THAT WORKS THERE SEEMS TO BE VERY STUCK UP LIKE THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE CUSTMER.

NOBODY IS BETTER THAN ANYONE IN GODS EYES.I FELT VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AT THAT PLACE AND WILL NOT EVER BE GOING BACK!!

I have purchased 2 rv's from Dandy R V and have had wonderful experiences over the years! I am sure they cannot please everyone- as some people never can be "happy"- must have been some other issue except the camper. Get out more and try to enjoy this life you have.

Here is an update to my complaint about Dandy RV.After they read my complaint on here, they did contact us a month later and offer us $100 to partially cover our $300 in fuel costs.

I accepted their offer, so I can say they made good on what we were told originally.Just wish they would have done this when we were there and we probably would have done business with them again.
