    I called all the dealers listed on the BlazeKing zip code lookup and they said they never sold the BlazeKing. Weird. Called BlazeKing and they suggested I call their distributor in Nebraska. I'm about 1.5 hours south of Kansas City, KS. Can anyone suggest a great place to buy a BK Princess Ultra?

    If they gave you the number to the distributor, try it. Somebody just ordered one and is having it shipped directly, because there is no dealer near, but I don't remember who.

    I already called the Distributor in Nebraska. They are looking into it and are supposed to call me back...but no answer yet.

    It could be that the intention was to have that Nebraska distributor hook you up with a local retailer that actually buys stoves from BK.

    I had the same problem. I wanted a BK, but couldn't find a dealer nearby at all.

    I had the same problem, there were 2 dealers listed in TN (I am in Alabama, both were 150+ miles away) but both said they did not sell Blaze kings. I went the route of ordering one from a distant dealer. I would NOT do it again. Blaze King will recommend you NOT do that either. If you cannot get local support I would suggest buying a different brand.. While I am VERY happy with the customer service that BK ultimately provided me, and the stove is performing very well now-- I cannot say I would take that chance again. I am NOT anti BK in any way, I just want you to hear the flip side of the coin. Good luck with your decision.

    Personally I drove 2hrs out of my way to another state, saved over 700.00 compared to the closer dealer. I am very happy with my stove and would make that run again any time as the dealer I worked with was excellent and reasonable. I understand this was a new model stove, but no reason for the local guy to jack up the price that much. It's his choice, this is America.

    So I am not the only one ! We had that problem too when we where looking for a stove but not just BK it was everyone. We ended up calling dealers to see what they had in stock and ignoring the websites.
