New Buyers

We are in the market for a new Class A gas 30-34'. Considering Tiffin, Newmar and Fleetwood. Is 25% off list a realistic objective?
I've been warned that if we buy from a dealer out of town that getting warranty work done locally will be very difficult.

It's realistic but not guaranteed. Your local dealers may not be willing to discount that much, but somebody will. 15% off MSRP is pretty common, but you will have to work hard and/or shop around to get 20-25%.

Some dealers don't give very prompt service if you didn't buy there, but others run a professional service shop that handles all comers on an equal basis. Hard to say what the shops in your area do, but that's a risk. If you can get a better price out of town, take the quote back to the local guy and see if he will match it, or at least come closer.

That (25%) is just what we got off on our 2015 Allegro 36LA. But, we had to look. One dealer wanted $10K more for the the same coach. We walked away & kept looking. Glad we did.

We got ours for 21% less. Over the months of shopping for best buy and best coach for our needs, we realized that the bargains were less available with certain models, depending on how many are actually available out there. We didn't want to wait for 3 months to special order, and there were very few around, so the dealers aren't quite ready to bargain so easily near us.

What I also discovered was if I was willing to travel far, I could possibly get a larger discount. And willing to travel to smaller towns with less buyers the price was a little better. We didn't do that, as we wanted the dealer close by. Getting too old for excess headaches!
