I think 30% off is a fair deal. I would get a quote from RV Direct and see what they want for the same TT. If it is more than 30% off MSRP I would buy from them or show it to your TT dealer and see if they will match the price.

On RV Trader.com in a national search I found prices on the 2012 Jayco Eagle 330 RLTS for sale ranging from $30,778.00 in Phoenix, $32,466.00 in VA., $34,104.00 in MO. to a high of $51,146.00 in Oregon. So with a range of almost $20,000.00 I'd say there was a lot of room for negotiating!
By the way..according to Jayco's website, loaded with every possible option they run MSRP $47,287.00.
Good luck and you have a great eye for quality!

I have been shopping around, for a new TT, and found MSRP's all over the map. Some models varied by as much as 15K. I wrote to Forest River and Keystone, and asked them "Why do I see such a range in MSRP?". Both responded with something to the effect: MSRP is actually set by the selling dealer. It is based on invoice cost, shipping cost, dealer prep fees, dealer installed options, and dealer mark-up. Some dealers have higher mark-up than others, some dealers mark-up only the invoice cost, and some dealers mark-up all costs.
Here is a quote from Jayco's web site: *MSRP does not include Dealer prep, Destination charges, Dealer installed accessories/options, Taxes/Titles and Registration fees.
As you can see from these quotes, MSRP has vary little to do with "Manufacturers" pricing.
It's all up to the dealers and how much profit they are after.
It was a Keystone Cougar 32SAB that I was looking for. Saw MSRP's from 45K down to 37K. Thirty percent off MSRP's would have been 25.9 on low end and 31.5 on high end. I ended up driving a few hundred miles, just to compare prices on the same make / model (same options), between competing dealers, and bought one for 24K. That's 47% off the 45K, or, 36% off the 37K, and I wasn't getting one off the lot. Mine (2013 model) will be delivered in May.
