A 25 to 30 percent discount is standard. NOBODY pays MSRP. And I mean nobody. So, the equalizer is your trade. As in any vehicle transaction you pay a price for trading. But, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just decide what your time is worth and then decide if want to trade or sell it yourself.

Also, you have to decide if you can finance the transaction if you hold your current vehicle while you buy another one. Many people can't and have to trade. For some people though trading is just a convenience. And as in most transactions, convenience comes at a price.

My advice? Travel to a big National retailer like Lazy Days and spend a few days or a week there looking for the perfect deal. You'll find one and the transaction will be EASY!

I agree a 2012 will be your best option, we looked at a 2012 new and one just exactly like it that was used 2012 that the owner had for sale at the same dealership on consignment the used unit was 20k more than the bran new one, because of the dealer discount. the poor guy had gotten into financial trouble and was asking his pay-off on the used one that was only 5 month's old. He must have paid full retail and the dealer dropped his price to move out the remainder of the 2012's

Yep, I've seen used rigs that were on the market for what the owner paid originally. They list the MSRP (sticker) price and then their asking price as though you're getting a deal. Might as well buy new in that case.
