New RV what must Haves to add to deal

Hi My wife and I am taking the plunge and buying a new Newmar Canyon Star. We are newbies to the experience and life but think it will be the best way to see the US 6 months out of the year. Before I start the negotiation I would like to get a list of add-ons I can use for the deal and during the negotiation. So far my list is the following but any input on more or if I have something wrong would be great. Also any advice for the 2014 Canyon Star would be welcome.

1. towing & braking
a. Blue Ox Alpha tow bar & car Plate
b. LSL Products Toad Charge
c. SMI Stay-In-Play DUO
2. surge protector: Progressive Industries EMS HW50C 50amp
3. Tire Pressure System: EEZRV TPMS 515 - 10 sensor system(RV 6 + toad 4)
4. water softener: SoftCell
5. All weather vent covers
Thanks in advance

The list is a result of reading recommendations on the site. Did not see any threads with it pulled together concerning an initial purchase.

None of those items are Newmar options? Are you somehow trying to get the dealer to include these items with the unit or provide discount on them?

Yes, maybe wrongly I assumed it would be better to package stuff I needed or wanted at the time of sale like you do on a car for dealer added options.

You might be able to get the dealer to give you a "bulk discount" % off if you buy all from them & have them do the install. Most of that stuff is sold al-a-cart but it never hurts to ask. If they've got an accessories showroom, just take a stroll through there & you'll quickly find a whole bunch more stuff (sewer hose kit, water hoses, camp rug, chairs....etc.)

Our dealer threw in the sewer/fresh water hookups, Maxx Air fan covers, and a "gift card" for their parts/accessories store so we could get a few freebies. Nothing close to towing setup, tow bar, etc. Of course, it never hurts to ask...but those are pricey items.

If dealing with some of the larger dealers that have full service bays you might be able to negotiate the installation of perhaps the tow plate and braking system or the Progressive Surge.They will most likely not throw in the hardware. It is certainly worth a try.

I think I would try to get the biggest discounted price for the MH first then get a discounted price on accessories. Also unless you are paying cash for the Rv do you want to finance accessories with the Rv.

Thanks for the advice. Probably did not explain myself well enough from the start. I am paying cash for the rig so the list I wanted to put together was everything I could think of I initially needed and put it in the deal to negotiate an overall price. Looks like I am going to go to Winter Park RV I will post how the approach worked out, if at all.

Thanks for the clarification! I think negotiating for discounts on those items is a good idea. (I initially thought you meant "dealer freebies". DUH!)

Try to get them to install dually valve stems. They are solid metal valve stems that are long enough to reach from the inside dually to the outside dually making it easy to add/check air pressure.

Dually valve kits for Motor-homes, Busses and 6-wheeled chassis

Do not accept the extensions that screw onto the original valve stems.

Are you dealing with Orlando RV on Fairbanks? I've been dealing with them for a month on a used coach. They have been pretty good right now but are starting to get a little hesitant to live up to their side of the deal. They have been selling 140+ units a month and are a little overwhelmed I think. Let me know how you make out.
