Typically, when purchasing factory direct, there will be very little discount. I've heard but have not verified that on their Class C 's that you may be able to get 5-10% off the asking price stated. I'd also like to know from those who have purchased units from them if they were able to get any amount off the published price (not really an MSRP as there is no distribution network to suggest a MSRP from the manufacturer).
That's why it may appear that the new Bentley is priced very low but you're obviously not going to get the typical 25-30% discount the way you would if purchasing a unit in the traditional dealer distribution set up.
However, for a diesel pusher which will cost under 200k, it does seem that this pusher is packed with value. I was just again scrutinizing the "standard features" listed and for an entry level pusher and it has items like:
100 gallon fuel tank
Seamless fiberglass roof
Full body paint (four color)
LED lights on electric patio awning
6-way power seats for both driver and passenger
Electric front shades
2000 watt inverter
On-demand water heater
Side view cameras
46″ LED TV in living room
32″ LED TV in bedroom
Fireplace in living room
Crown molding in living room
Decorative ceiling fixture with LED lighting
Vessel sink in bathroom
Norcold Side-by Side Refer w/ice Maker 12 cu. Ft. with water dispenser
Stainless Steel Appliances
Central vac system
Air compressor with hose
Dimmer switches throughout
I just picked out a few of the standard features listed that may or may not be found on other entry level DPs that cost under $200k.
I too am waiting for more info and some pictures of the Bentley.
ETA: additionally, I found this on another forum a few years ago from their president, Claude Donati, which says in part:
"We have three goals with this business model. First, we are saving people thousands of dollars, to this point, we have calculated a $7,100 dollar saving for each person that bought from us. Secondly, we allow our customers to have input on their unit. Items like interior appointments, paint colors, furniture style, etc.. Thirdly, we are delivery the very best buying experience possible. We are focused on the customer. Contrary to our past of focusing on our dealer body, we do everything with the customer in mind."
