Right Time To Buy ?

We are doing alot of research and interested in a 2014 new model. Has everything we like. It's discounted some, is there a time of year, it's best to buy for biggest discounts ? This model has a tub and we have had trouble finding those with a tub. We are empty nesters, but look forward to a few decades, if possible, of camping with our adult kids, and grands. We figure this is the 'best time of our life.' So we want to make the best choices.

We've looked at used, but just haven't found exactly what we like.

The two tt's we bought new, we ended up "ordering" because we wanted certain options or interior trim color. On our currant hybrid RV (2013 Aerolite) we started in June 2011 when the new floor plan came out as a 2012 model. Didn't like the price that was given that included a trade. Waited till the local RV show the following Jan. and was given about the same price on the same unit from the same local dealer. Ended up contacting a dealer 2.5 hours away for a phone quote that was 50% out of pocket than my local dealer. Yes, my local dealer wanted $19k plus my 2005 tt. The other dealer (2.5 hours away) wanted $9800 plus my 2005 tt.

Ordered a 2012, but gave my a 2013 when I went to pick it up after it's 6 weeks to build. Took delivery March 2012 of a 2013 Aerolite 232ES.

Without a trade, I think you have more wiggle room in your negotiations.

Both dealers I worked with were giving my $6500 trade value. Ended up selling my 05' for $8500 on Craigslist, so I just paid the difference.

If you have found the one you like and the model is scarce I would say you have answered your own question.

If you know it is scarce and hard to get you can rest assured that the dealer does as well. Get the best deal you can and buy it before someone else does. What is a year of use worth? - PRICELESS

The right time is when you find a RV that you are totally pleased with, has all of the options you want, and the price is what "you" want to pay. That can all come at any time of the year.

Right. Have looked alot online for this model. Finally found it! And if someone doesn't have it, they just want you to look thru their inventory, which is fine. But now I can't find anything I like as well. Thx for the tips.
