I shopped at dealers with-in a 7 hour drive, looking for the best deal keeping in mind that the dealer has to turn a profit too. I ended up ordering a 5er and getting 34% off the MSRP and with a trade involved.

I own a business myself and I thought this was fair for both sides. I could have fought more but then if I ever needed anything they could have screwed me over.

I am a home builder and I keep to the premiss that if I can build stick built homes for $125.00 a sq ft, RV trailers are built for half of that lets say $65.00 a sq and that's high.... Average 40 ft Trailer say with the slides 370 Sq Ft X $65.00 is roughly 24K than i ad a 38 percent manufacturer markup $9,120 gives me give or take 33 34K and thats where I start... I take the attitude hey you can only take MY money from me.. The dealer can not take MY money from anyone but me... However I can find that item from 100 different dealers if I want to.. All they can say is no... Works For Me PS Those numbers are not custom high end builds..

I got about 30% off what showed as MSRP when buying our Jayco recently. Price wasn't as low as going to Indiana, but I don't have to travel a couple of days there and back to pick up the trailer so I think the price differential was very reasonable.

A few years ago we were looking through some new Wildcats. Since these had just been delivered, the dealer invoice was lying in all of the units. Made for interesting reading.

When I bought my new unit a few years ago, I priced one from RV-Wholesalers and then used this as the price for my dealer to beat. Although my local dealer advertises that they will beat any deal, they did lots and lots of whining before they agreed to match it.

Something similar happened to me but too late. In 2004 my wife and I bought a unit from Forest River, it was listed (MSRP) at around $21,000 and we ended up giving $13,500 for it. After we got home with it, I found in the trailer the actual factory papers that stated the dealer cost of $8500.

I got 29% off the MSRP when I bought mine in November. I didn't have a trade because I sold my old one. I didn't need financing so they didn't have to deal with that. As far as what is MSRP. Look online and see what the going price for the same unit is. Mine listed for $62,000 before the second air and W/D combo. I bought it for $45,000 with the second air and W/D installed. If you figure the sales tax that you will save on the other $19,000 I saved another $1,500. The cheapest I found the same rig anywhere was listed at $44,200 without the second air and W/D. The cheapest I found any MSRP is $60,940 but it didn't have all the options listed that mine has. If you wait much longer I would assume the spring prices will go into effect and they will go up. Good Luck.

About 49% off on a close to year end model that had been on the lot for about 9 months. You can get Heartland MSRP sheets on the Heartland owners forum.

There may be 2 MSRP's.

The factory and the dealer.

If you are working with a reputable dealer there will be no confusion?

When we ordered, through emai, our unit the breakdown was just like the factory - we cross checked.

The MSRP's that some refer to are sitting in the unit on the dealers lot.

Just be aware.
