I have the PDI list put together but won’t send it to the dealer until we have a yay or nay regarding financing.
I took a picture of all the tires DOT codes and the tire code dates are as follows. All 4 tires were manufactured either the 12th or 13th week of 2001. That’s right, 2001!! Seriously?? 11 year old tires?? How can 11 year old tires look so good?? Doesn’t matter, Ronda and I had decided not to use the tires as a negotiating tool to get other work done to the rig, however now that I checked the codes there is no way we buy this rig with the original tires on it, no way!
I wrote my salesman and explained to him that we can’t accept 11 year old tires. We’ll see what they say tomorrow, plus I still have a lot more to look at to make sure this is the rig we want. The good thing is, we don’t NEED this RV, it would make a fantastic upgrade but only if the deal is worthy. The salesman has already told me they won’t replace the tires for the price they are selling the rig at, my response will be 11 year old tires are unacceptable, period. Also, I will not buy the rig without a proper inspection and I told them I’ll pay for the fuel and inspection but there is no deal without it.
We’ll see how this plays out tomorrow.
