Best Way To Deal

Pretty much have a brand and model in mind and a few must features. Will dealers deal more on in stock or ordered models ???

Thanks Jim

Always in stock, especially this time of year. If it was February you might get the same deal on a "made to order" model because that is when dealers are ordering them by the bucket load.

Best Way To Deal

In stock, and look for the year model 1 older than what's out. New models hit the dealers in June (I believe), so like this year the 2015's came out in June, and all 2014 models then begin dropping in price a LOT. We picked up a 2014 Puma a few weeks ago for a GREAT price, why? It's a 2014 not 2015, and it's August, sales season is winding down. 2014 models that are left will continue to drop like a rock, so my advice is look for one of them. Still have full warranty, and typically are identical model to model to 2015's. Hope you find a great deal!

Actually it depends upon the dealer. Understand that it costs the dealer to put an RV on his lot and the longer that it stays the more he needs in order to make a profit. On the other hand, when you special order an RV the dealer simply accepts delivery, has a tech go through the "make ready" process and then he delivers it to the end user and has very little invested in that RV. As a result, completely honest dealers will sell for least when you order a unit, unless they happen to have something that they are stuck with and are willing to just dump.

My experience has been that we select the RV that we want and then contact several dealers in about a 200 mile radius and give them a list of exactly what we want and ask for a price. We find that usually gets the best price from either a special order or, when a dealer just happens to have a recent delivery that fits our requirements. I have been buying RVs now for more than 35 years and this has worked for me.
