"You can buy a nicely equipped 1500 for $50k. Maybe less with incentives and discounts." Mine was but I have good credit too.

Perhaps wishful think on the manufacturers and dealers part. You can not force 30 million folks out of work for months (and that has to be a low number because they do not really know the total yet) and not expect it to affect sales of big ticket items causing them to go down the poop shoot. A large percentage of those folks won't even have a job to go back to.

It's not unlike the rosy picture that RVBusiness and the RVIA and RVDA are painting regarding the RV Industry. It's going in the tank also for the foreseeable future. The ramifications of this shutdown fiasco have not even begun to be felt downstream, hold on tight, it's coming. They have to paint it all pretty for the stockholders.

He needs to shop harder. There is a national market for trucks. You can have one delivered to your door. Try Dave Smith in Idaho.

Now is a good time to buy a 2019 that is brand new.

I live in the South Texsa oil patch. Lot's of new trucks on the lots and the used trucks are stating to pile up. Soon the repo guys and the voluntary surrenders will begin. Expensive trucks will be hard to sell.

Sucked into a 7 year 0% interest loan? Sounds like a great deal to me. I've been considering buying a new 3500 to replace my current dually. I could write a check for a new one buy why when I can use their money for free?

70k, go buy a 3/4 ton [emoticon]

Cars sales are way way down. Dealers are desperate for sales.

As mentioned before on this; Dave Smith has sooooo many trucks, the gleam from the chrome can be seen for miles. This dealer contributes about 40% of the county taxes.
It sounds like the dealer in the east is trying to pick some pretty plums.

Yep, 7 years at 0%?! I'll keep my money in the bank and let it work while I use their money to buy it.
