autokraft, Hitchhiker has the right strategy. That's basically what I did about 6 weeks ago. I walked away from the deal when they said "no" and got a phone call from the sales manager the next day wanting to deal. Hang tough and good luck. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thanks for the advice, I'm not sure 65% off MSRP is realistic though. I won't be financing it through the dealer (other means) so I'll be basically walkin in and paying cash. I've been there several times, looked it over and had the dealer go over everything several times so I'm familiar with everything. He spent about two hours with me on saturday so he know's I'm serious and not a dreamer. I may wait another day and make an offer to put the ball in his court. I want the coach but I don't think I need it as bad as he would like to sell it.

We'll see, Thanks again!!!!

I believe you might have misread the post. The suggestion was 65% OF the suggested price--not 65% OFF the price. 35% discount sounds about right to me for a one year old new coach. We bought a new Alpine in Jan. for 27% off suggested price. They had only gotten it on the lot in Dec.

Good luck.

Autocraft, it never hurts to low ball them on your offer "35%" off MSRP. You can always come up but ya can't ever go back down. Another approch to added value on a deal is GOODIES, extra window awnings, satelite systems, aluminium wheels, extended warrenty and such. My experiance is they always throw in something, and they get it way cheaper then you can get it for.

Ed-Deb, I was thinking at least 30% myself and full tanks, (Fuel, propane) Its new but it had to depreciate some since the 07's are out. I'm not looking for the deal of the century but I would certainly think it would be cheaper than an 07. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>


I wouldn't go with less then 30% off on a one year old MH. (The dealer will look at it as a year old model if you were trading it in).

As others have suggested, start at 35% and be prepared to walk away. If you just have to have this unit then start at 35% and work down to no less then 30%. Then think of some things you want added (i.e chrome rims, fuel allowance, full propane and fuel tanks, sewer hose, etc.).

If they want to sell it rather then wait for a full price offer, they will eventually make a deal that is reasonable.

Thanks again, I was going to start at 35% and go from there. We'll see what happens.

This has been a very helpful site. I'm really glad I stumbled across it. I will frequent this often and help someone else out if I can. This is great!
