I find it interesting when I purchased my Pace Arrow in 2001, Fleetwood and others were offering a rebate an almost all models that were sitting on the lot too long. Now that I see sales are down accross the board for RV's including layoffs at many of the manufactures. Why havent't the manufacturers offered an incentive program to purchase. Maybe the RV sales are not so bad after all.

Rebates tend to make the good time better and boost market share. My guess is the manufacturers have cut their purchases of components to be inline with a reduced total volume of RVs they will sell. This means they are in a situation where if they guessed right, they will sell all the units they have purchased components for. Supplier lead times are long. There is no need for rebates.

Maybe they are just maintaining a wait and see attitude thinking that many RVers will eventually come around and buy a new unit. On the other hand, Itasca is offering $1500.00 towards the price of gas or to be used as down payment on its Navion brand.

There are rebates but many go to the dealers and not the public. Foretravel is paying for your fuel for one year. Monaco has up to $10,000 rebates running right now.
