It is all marketing. I would say that rv manufacturers have far more margin than the typical auto manufacturer does. If you se an rv with an msrp of 150k, I would generalize that the selected dealer could sell it at 100 to 120 and still make money.

My rv had a msrp of 110k when I bought it in 06, and it was out the door @ 88 with all taxes and fees.

The cost of the Rv was 76k.

I used pilot a couple of planes for a BILLIONAIR, yes with a B. A Boeing 727 and a DC-9. Always was asked how one could possibly own 2 AIRLINERS. I would ask them, "if you had say a $1,000 would you spend 7 dollars on 2 cars? Its the same ratio, just add 6 zeros! To some its chump change. More power to "chump change" as it paid my bills for several years.

Whatever the cost, I can't see buying new coach with a 12 month warranty.

Value is in the eye of the purchaser.

Doesnt the editorial staff read articles in their magazine to see to see if they make sense. And to have an add farther in the mag to contradict what was written. Makes me wonder about the magazine itself !

When searching for your next great RV... always look at Motorhome Specialist (MHSRV) to see close to what you SHOULD be paying... and then look at any Camping World or Tom Raper to see what you should NEVER by paying.

In our last year of searching we found that going to MHSRV always gave us the best indication of what all those other inflated dealers COULD be discounting. I'm sure MHSRV has built in a little padding, but they have prices listed lower than just about anyone else out there. They're pretty up-front about their pricing as well... so you don't get that screwed-over feeling after visiting a regular dealer who tries to give you some insane sob story about how they've squeezed about every ounce of discount out of their pricing and they have to "at least make a little bit of money to cover expenses."

We almost felt like we had to take a shower after visiting mot dealerships. Many of the sales people I found to be extremely nice and very helpful... but they can't control the dealership pricing.

I'm not one of those "love to dicker" kind of guys. Give me a price -- be reasonable with it -- and let's make a deal. But it seems that all the dealers (and manufacturers) like to show off these unrealistic MSRP prices so that their horribly inflated dealer prices seem like some sort of a discount.

When you see a rig at Camping World for $220,000... and then you see the EXACT same rig at Motorhome Specialist clearly marked for $125,000... you can't help but get a bit miffed at the dealers who are more than happy to take advantage of anyone not smart enough to do their research.

I'm perfectly fine with people making a profit -- a good profit. But there is a difference between making a good profit and taking advantage of someone to such a great degree that all the sales people high-five and drink victory shots as the "suckers" are leaving after having over-paid considerably for their new rig... while the sales guys make fun of them for being so ignorant. I've actually seen that happen. Walked right out the door never to return. Horrible.

I have yet to figure out how camping world sells any used rigs. I looked at a couple last year. They were beat to crap and so over priced it wasn't even funny. I had to tell the salesman good luck putting lipstick on those pigs. That's the quickest I've ever had a salesperson walk away from me. I bought the rig I own now for $70,000, put $15,000 into it. NADA value retail $119,000 wholesale $86,000. I'm a happy camper.

I wasn't put here on this earth to judge others by what they have or how they spend it, it's their business, not mine.
