What's a good deal on a 2018 Phaeton?

To our surprise, Tiffen finally updated their interiors. Looked at a 2018 Phaeton 40IE yesterday and totally fell for it. We currently have a 16 Thor Challenger gasser, but would appreciate input on this model and what a typical or good deal would be. MSRP around $340k. Thanks!

We Just ordered our 2018 Phaeton 40IH our price $347.000 with the changes and options we wanted and we were able work 27% off that plus trading in our 2016 Fleetwood Expedition . 27 % was acceptable more off would have been better of course but 25 to 30% off msrp seems to be the norm for the most part

I agree with the previous poster, and I think you probably looked at a 40IH as I don't believe Tiffin has a 40IE in their line.

I would suggest sending price quote requests to the following dealers:

Marlin Ingram RV Center, Montgomery, AL
Davis Motorhome Mart, Memphis, TN
Sherman RV Center, Sherman, MS

All three were right around 29% off of MSRP on my 2017. It somewhat depends on what options you choose.

Agree on the price but they are not going to give you much on trade, closer to wholesale as they discount their MHs.

Bob you have a point...we added, changed and deleted more than a few items on our order.....could we have worked for a little more off ? Maybe but we got a good trade in price too , and we have been treated very well so I guess I can"t complain.......now if December can hurry up and get here get here so we can pick it up...lol

If you received a good trade in price and got 27% off I think you did very well.

I sold my previous coach myself and of course did much better than what the dealers were offering. However I understand that doesn't work for everyone.

In any event congratulations, and I hope you enjoy your new coach.

Yes, I meant Phaeton 40IH. We will follow the advice and check out those Tiffen dealers. It's a beautiful coach, for sure Thanks!

And that floor with no step up in the rear is great, along with the front independent suspension, a lot of pluses on that IH

Okay we have the model designation straightened out. Now we need to work on the manufacturer's name... it's Tiffin

Haha, but I can spell Thor Challenger. May have to work a little harder to get Tiffin down, but I'm sure I can learn if I study hard!

I am in Red Bay now getting my 36LA repaired. I have looked at several 40IH's at the factory and in Belmont. They have done a great job with the chassis and the interriors. I heard discussion, because of the IH success, other configurations and options may be available in the future built on this new platform.
