Our experience with the Fife RV in Tacoma has been ridiculously un-pleasant, to say the least! For starters, my husband and I knew exactly what we were looking for when we called, and we knew Fife had it, in fact they had two.
As we began the "negotiation process" with Steve Rademacher, he had the audacity to proclaim that he "deserved to make some money off of the deal", before he had even spent any time assisting us. Apparently he deserves to make a commission just for answering his phone... Then he asked my husband if he knew what it felt like to go to work and not get paid for it, (yes, he went there!).
After that phone call we were pretty adamant that we were not going to do business with them, and trust me if there was a comparable coach available we would have driven across the US to get it. BUT there wasn't, so back to Fife we went, reluctantly.
Trusty old Steve finally quoted us a price we could agree on, with $1000 down. We made the plunge. We called to confirm and drove the 2.5 hours to get there after work, in rush hour traffic.
When we got there we were informed, that the unit we wanted, had been sold. Steve was going to be gracious enough to let us look through it anyway. Are you frickin' kidding me, you couldn't have told us that on the phone!!
So we waited, (I'm about to implode at this point). When Steve returned with the keys his story changed, and supposedly the deal fell through, (I'm having a really hard time taking this guy seriously right about now)!
We did the walk through and the brand new unit is a wreck, locks are busted out, stereos have been pulled, doors are crooked, and so on. Steve assures us that all of that will be taken care of when we pick it up.
Done, we're ready, we'll take it! Suddenly the down payment had increased and we needed $5k to put down. Not a big deal we'll swing it. As Steve is writing up the paperwork the price miraculously increased another $3000. At that point my husband had enough he was tired of Sneaky Steve's "used car salesman" tactics. His tactics paired with the behavior of cocaine addict could not be trusted, we had to walk away.
Too bad everyone lost out on a good deal today because of a horrible salesman.
