new from northern Virginia

Looking to upgrade from a class C Forester to a class A 2013 Winnebago Vista 35B. Any pros/cons? Also, any tips on negotiating the msrp of $140,500?

Thanks in advance for any info or guidance

Welcome to irv2. Hope to visit that part of the country next year as our son and his wife are, as we speak, on the road to Charlottesville where she has accepted a position with the University of Virginia. We didn't get one as large as what your looking at, but we did buy an '11 Vista 26P in November and with very minor exceptions, mostly the placement of the living area chair, we are very happy with the unit. Have only done a couple of trips and with what few miles we've put on it, we're getting 7.5 while towing the Focus and 8.5 without.

Hi cid817, welcome to the forum. If your selling yours and buying outright think in terms of 25-27% off msrp.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes & info. We have decided to wait and keep what we have. Maybe we'll reconsider in a few years when retirement is closer. However, the 2013 Winnebago Vista is SWEET! Bath & a half, big shower, bunks for the grandkids....super nice! Our current 2011 Forester is nice & we've done a lot to it. Would like to put a slide in the bedroom for closet space. Anyone have any experience having that done?

Welcome to our forum! Having a slide installed sounds like an expensive task...MSRP is just that! When I purchased my RV at a Good Sam Rally everyone was selling for thousands/tens of thousands off of the MSRP so with that I would walk away if they do not want to deal down whenever you decide yo buy!
