Personally I think the dealership keeps them longer when they are under warranty so you can’t use it and possibly find more warranty issues .

I did the same thing last fall. Took it in for some warranty work. A few items they could complete and others they got approval from Keystone and I brought it home for the winter. They are ordering the last couple parts and I have an appointment for April 11. They are going to repair it while I wait, they figure 2 hours, and I will bring it home.

This is at our local Camping World, NW of Minneapolis. I cannot begin to tell you how good the service has been from them.

While there may be a few that do that, none of the dealerships I worked at did that. Didnít have the space, and had too much work to do already.

Seems I have the opposite problem of most folks. We are snow birds and live in a vacation area in upstate NY. We do little or no camping during the summer. The DW doesn't like having the rv parked in the driveway all summer so when we come home if I have service that is needed I schedule at the dealer and tell him "no hurry" hoping I can get some free storage there. Of course nothing has ever taken over a week.

As for damage, one year while in the south I discovered by tire wear that I had a bent axle. Dropped it at a local dealer for a fix while we went home for the Christmas holidays. When I came back to pick it up they embarrassingly told me when they went to move it out of the bay they realized they had left the lug nuts off one wheel when it came off damaging the J-wrap and fender. They of course fixed it on their dime and it now looks like new.
