i'm sorry i hit the wrong tab. i didn't mean to send.

i don't mean this to be negative but... all the responses to your inquiry dealt with only the customer aspect. frankly IMHO "if you build it they will come" is a fair statement. the business as you've described is wonderful. i know i would prefer walking in to a dealer like this one.

there is so much to consider. the real key as i see it is "DEBT". there can be so many surprises on any given day that while you think you have enough cash that day comes along and whappp! something major and your empty.

think about your building (place of business). i don't know where you are but you wouldn't put in skid row or an economically challenged area right. so you know you will need an up scale location. remember that 250k building i mentioned. well i know places that the dirt costs that much. the building you speak of won't be a pole barn either. the mechanical for this building, shop air supply, sprinklers, potable water, sewer & backflow prevention. OUCH!!!

one other word of advice is buy more dirt than you think you'll need. remember you may want to expand. if you're land locked you'll be facing a move.

well that's enough sour puss. i wish you all the best of luck. if you try hard you'll succeed.

Thanks Much!
