The new models generally come out in May so this really is more of a mid year situation. I still see most dealers of motorhomes start at 25% off and then you can negotiate off that number. They still need to move product and if it's on their lot they are paying interest on their floor plan.

Does anyone know if this figure of 25% discount has varied significantly over the last twelve model years due to market demand or pricing practices? That is, if NADA shows an MSRP of $100k, is it reasonable to assume that it originally sold for $75k?

There was a 2014 model on the floor at a local car dealership last month. It feels inherently wrong to call it a 2014 when it was built, purchased and on the road by July of 2013. Where can I buy a 2015 RV this year?

That's a very good question as to the change, if any, in discounts over the past few years. I have a pretty good feel for what it is today and has been for the last few years, but before that I have no idea.

What makes the purchase of a 2014 model RV today even more strange is that the chassis could be a 2012 chassis and the tires could even be from 2011.

It is pretty much impossible to determine exactly what someone may have paid for a unit when they originally purchased it. You could probably pretty safely assume that they SHOULD have paid about 30-38% less than list. Even that info can be skewed pretty heavily by trade ins.

If our purchase is any indication, then yes it is. We take delivery next week and our purchase price was just a tad more than 30% off MSRP. I just had to do a bit of back and forth to get there.

As far as used go, it doesn't really matter what the first owner paid for it. Use your own math for what you think it should of sold for, then discount your price from there on what you think its worth today. Again, buying my 2011 Georgetown last July/August salesman and I were 14K apart. I went up 2K, he came down 12K. Deal.

As far as the market being up this year, that is true. However the big jump in numbers is for TT and other pull behinds. Up to July the nation wide figure for total class A sales was like just over 1700 units, which represented something like a 12.5% increase from last year. They'll deal just as Orangepeel stated. Finally, according to my dealer this is the busiest time of the year for them. A lot of the sales activity is upgrades from currant RV owners.
