Unbelievable, I assume the buyer will win but what will the dealer do to the RV before he takes delivery?

This has a 20+ page thread on the RV.NET forum. The buyer is a forum member over there. It's quite a story to follow. Guess he's picking it up the weekend.

I would like to read that - couldn't find it, however. Which forum?

So in one day the bees took over and they had honey? ...something ain't right here bee lovers.

I see that the dealer now has done the right thing and is going to honour the deal.

I have been following this story as well. I am looking forward to reading what happens when he finally takes possession of that trailer.
