Where did you come up with that figure???? I have the factory Dealer Invoice Sheet on my coach, and while you are correct about the options, there's not a 40% mark up on the MSRP of the base price. At least there wasn't on my Monaco Signature.
One thing you have to be careful of is that dealers have a habit of making their own factory "MSRP Sticker." Dealer's will add 10-25% to the factory MSRP and then try to "deal" from that. So when a dealer gives you 35% off then in reality you might only be getting 5-10% off (of the factory MSRP) I have found that a sure clue is when the sticker in the coach looks like something typed up on a computer. When I see that I ALWAYS ask to see the factory MSRP price list, it usually will have some kind of "water mark" on it.
Camping world is a good one for this, and every one I've ever looked at marks up the factory MSRP and will put their own "MSRP price list" in the coaches.
