As a recent purchaser of a TT, I learned a lot of stuff about pricing. 30% off MSRP is about what you can expect during negotiations. Watch out for the added fees like Dealer Documentation, PDI fees, Dealer prep fees. These can add over $1,000 to the cost if your not careful. Some of these fees may be unavoidable but need to be calculated into the true price of the TT. Also watch out for over priced hitches. You can get a much better deal on a hitch on the internet.

The RV sales business was modeled after the old car sales methods. Do your research and do lots of shopping and asking questions. You should be fine.

I always make a "drive-out" offer. I start at 65% of MSRP... and last time I paid 68% with all the taxes and dealer prep, etc. included. I'm going to do this again in a couple of months if the market comes back up... If not... I'll just keep what I have for another year or so.

That's how I buy my vehicles. I have a maximum amount that I'm willing to pay and make an offer that is less than that. The offer is always for the amount of the check I will write. I don't care how they put the numbers down on the paper as long as the bottom line is the number we agree on.

When buying a car/truck there are usually lots of vehicles available that will suit me, so I sometimes tell the salesman that we aren't going to play "the game" and that my offer is pretty much a take-it-or-leave-it one. If they come back with a reasonable counter I'll work with them IF I really wanted the particular vehicle.

Who finances RVs?
Any recommendations on finance companies?

We will be going thru our credit union. 3.6%. Isn't too bad.

I'd recommend having your financing pre-approved thru your bank or credit union. Just don't mention it during negotiations.

I just factory ordered a new Jayco TT. Got 33% off of total as ordered price including delivery costs. Not charged for any dealer prep. Only doc. fees were $80.

Uncle Sam gets there usual cut. This is a slow time for dealers and the factories. Wireman

Steve,

What "usual cut" does Uncle Sam get? Is there some federal tax involved?
