If I understand how it works, if your PA dealer has a desirable car to trade with the TX dealer for the one you want, it works much more smoothly. In that case, both dealers still have to pay for incomimg/outgoing freight but they can work out a package deal and might pass the cost saving on to you, or even eat it.
However, if your car is only coming one-way, they are trying to pass the cost on to you. I think you can bargain that down to at least 50-50 or maybe better. But, if you beat up the PA dealer on the selling price, they might not budge.
