When you bought your new TT...

Did the dealer include televisions? What extras did you ask to be included? I just would like an idea for what I can ask for. I'm looking at a 2016 unit and the price is pretty firm.

TV's were included with the 3 new trailers I bought. Ask for an electric jack, two batteries, and two 7gal propane tanks.
Buy a good hitch, such as a Blue Ox Sway Pro.

My Keystone Bullet Premier came with a 42" TV and I didn't negotiate for any extras; although I wish I had asked for a slide topper.

Any options you get the dealer to include....you are really paying for them as part of the deal. Figure out what you want and make an offer.

We've already been given a price both with and without our trade and we've also been told how much they'll give us for the trade. We've also been told that this price is pretty non-negotiable. The model we're looking at is a 2016 and I think the price is decent, so I'm okay with that. I do know that he'll include the electric jack. I will need to ask about the batteries and propane. Thanks for the replies. The hitches/antisway they sell are Equal-I-zer brand. I've read lots of good things on here about Blue Ox. How is Equal-I-zer quality? Is it worth purchasing the Blue Ox elsewhere?

This is the second TT we have had our Equal-i-zer 1000 on and it has performed flawlessly on both. Easy to hook up and disconnect with the use of the power jack. I assume it helps with sway as advertised but I try to keep my weight in check and speeds reasonable anyway to minimize any sway.

Love my Equalizer.
If you're happy with the price then go for it.
Personally if I'm buying vehicles and the dealer tells me the price is "haggle free" or non-negotiable I walk. There is ALWAYS room for negotiation of some sort.

Yes the Blue Ox is worth it. My son has an Equalizer. I watched him grease it the other day to quiet it down. He wishes he had bought a Blue Ox instead.

Enjoy your new trailer.

Mine did not come with a television, and I didn't try to negotiate anything else in. I liked it fine as it was (added a couple televisions later much cheaper than any dealer would have). The price was 47% off sticker for a unit that hadn't been built yet, so we got to pick the colors and fabrics.

The standard answer is not negotiable....but unless you have 25% off the MSRP, they are not as low as they can go. You can ask your bank what your trade is worth wholesale.

WOrk from there. Come up with a number that is workable for you with the dealer being left profit on both the sale and the trade. A dealer is going to try and separate you from as much money as possible.

We couldn't be happier with our Blue Ox Sway Pro. It's easy to hookup/unhook, quiet, backs up nicely, and is built to last!

Battery should thrown in for free. The trailers break away switch won't work without one.
The TV is either a standard or if larger than standard an option. The TV will be listed in the brochure if equipped.
I've never seen a battery listed on an MSRP sheet.

I have purchase two RVs so far and both included propane, batteries, and TV in main living area. The TV in the bedroom was an option on our first RV. I had the hitch thrown into the deal for our first RV. Like others have said I wouldn't make a big deal about the TVs you can get them much cheaper online. The other stuff I would consider standard equipment.
