Gee, hard to answer that!
It depends on where you buy it and where it's made!
Our DSDP had 2,200+ miles on it. Nappanee IN to Seattle area WA.
One DSDP we just looked at had over 4,000 miles since it was a year old and had been to several shows.

Ours had about 3,000 on it. The warranty didn't start until the day it was sold to me and went out 36,000 miles from the 3,000 or so that were on it.

Generally the Cummins engine gets really humming around 15,000 miles. Ours is getting noticably better mileage since we reached the 13,000 mark.

920 miles.

Forest City, IA to Hamburg, NY

If the coach has more miles on it than factory to dealer, it was taken to shows. At shows 100's of shoppers tramp trough the coach. I would expect an additional discount on a coach that was used as a demonstrator. Occasionally loose accessories disappear when the public walks through the motorhome at shows.

Mine had 79 miles on it. Of course we picked it up at the factory. The chassis got the dyno test, then the house was added. Then a drive on the highway and around some back roads ending up with a test on the skid plate.

There are a number of companies who contract this service to the manufacturers. They are normally CDL holders because they are driving commercially. I don't think they receive factory training but the manufacturers all have their specific requirements. The guys I've met seem pretty professional.

Well....maybe!
The driver that delivered ours picked it up right before a long weekend, drove it home (damaging it in the process, he claimed it was vandalism) and stayed at home over the long weekend. He was supposed to pick it up and head out to the west coast immediately So delivery to us got delayed by a week for painting of the damaged area.
