What is the normal discount off the MSRP on a new Newmar?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'm sure folks will be chiming in soon with more recent information but when I bought my new Itasca Ellipse in 2007 we paid about 24% under MSRP. I've heard much larger and a few smaller numbers lately.

Good luck.

Looks like your zeroing in on a new one. My opinion is 20% but that fluctuates with dealer, model, price. Higher priced ones with a floor plan that others don't like but you do, might creep up to 24%. Having said that, I feel a need to preach! I suggest a look at a 3-4 year old used one. You save a lot of money because the 1st yr. depreciation of 25% is used up. Remember, every dealer has to make a 5-10% profit, the salesman needs his cut, the shipping, dealer prep, flooring cost, etc is all fluff that comes with the new price. If you have a $160K budget, you could easily get a $300K model that is 3-4 years old. That is my experience and my opinion. Good luck on your choice.

I understand the difference from MSRP to dealer cost is about 35%. That said, consider when buying a new RV the difference is the dealers profit. Did they earn it?

Most dealers will offer 10-14% discount as their deal. You may be able to get up to around 25% with some dealers at some times, but don't expect to get it easily or from every seller. You will have to negotiate hard to get the max discount.

If you have a trade-in, it's hard to determine what is "discount' and what is actual trade-in value unless you know the wholesale book value of your trade. What the deal is actually giving for the trade is wholesale value - anything above that is part of the "discount".
