It doesn’t hurt to make an offer and see what they say, just be polite but firm, and don’t be afraid to walk if it’s more than you want to pay.

When I was shopping in 2018 I compared dealer prices all over the Internet then drove 100 miles to a dealer that had exactly what I wanted in stock. There was a price on the windshield less than what I saw in my research and I asked if that was their out the door price. The response… “No I think that’s not right” and they dropped it another $5K for 35% off. By comparing prices from all over I had a close idea what I should actually pay before going to a dealer.

While it's not 2018 anymore the process is the same. You have to run comps. What is the exact same unit selling for everywhere else? Call dealers that have the exact RV you want - anywhere in the US and ask them their out the door price. You might be able to negotiate a bit from there but you'll soon get an idea where the sweet spot is. Maybe your best deal is 1500 miles away. Might be worth it to save a few grand.

This is also a negotiating tool. If an RV dealer close to home has your unit you can tell that XYZ has it for a lower price and you're willing to drive there to get it. They might match the price.

When comparing comps you have to keep in mind that an RV out west made in the east is going to cost $3K more for shipping.

Thanks for the responses. These are all excellent advice. It's similar to what I did the last time I bought one and I got the best price I had seen anywhere. Maybe someone else got it for less, but probably not much less.
