What are you ordering?
We've ordered two Newmar DSDP's and bought many others over the last 55 years I've been RV'ing.

When we ordered ours we first worked with a dealer, then had to get prices from the factory for the extra work. At that point we worked with the regional rep and got drawings direct from Newmar to approve.
Don't know about HR and how much customization they do. We had walls removed, pocket doors removed, upgraded counters and a bunch of other stuff. About $35,000 in 2002 $$.

Buying an RV is a lot like buying a car. If the dealer doesn't have what you want in stock, he should be able to price out the unit with the options you want. He should have books of fabric swatches so you can also select the interior decor you want. Once you agree on the final price (discount from list, trade-in value, etc.), you give the dealer a deposit and he orders the unit from the factory. Make sure you have some sort of financing in place either on your own or through the dealer before you hand over any deposit because you will likely loose the deposit once the order is placed and you change your mind about buying.

When the new unit comes in, go through your pre-delivery inspection to make sure everything is right before handing over your down payment, signing over the title to your trade-in (if you have one) and signing the final papers.

Go to a dealer and work up the options for the rig you want. Get them to quote a sales price and then you decide whether to buy there or try another dealer. If you want custome features or mods, the dealer can contact the factory reps to work with them and you. Any HR dealer can order exactly what you want from Monaco/HR, so you still want to shop for the best pricing and a dealer you are comfortable with.
