Buying long distance

We are still looking and a unit at MHSRV has caught our eye. We emailed them and we were told its a hot unit in excellent shape and they said the wholesale price is 44k. 25 sales people, 2 people already interested but upside down in their trade.

All the things stated seems like sales BS to me just to keep the price of an offer at what they advertise. Anyone ever deal with them on negotiations on price. I have been reading 25 - 30% below advertised should be an acceptable selling price or am I off base.

We made an offer last week in this range and the dealer would only budge 17% and we walked because we feel it was too much for what needed work on the inside. The inside needed lots of work.

MHSRV said we can give 1k deposit have so many days to see and make deal. Since we are in NM we would have to
Have a company down there to inspect which is 500.

I need advise please any help would be great


Getting ready to hit the road, But still getting answers. So thanks for the help! 2006 Winnebago Sightseer 29R Ford F53. Roadmaster Eagle 8000. 2001 Ford F150 7700 4x4. Still shopping for toad brakes. FMCA F286179

From what I've read that kind of discount is on new rigs, not used ones. I think I read most folks there work on salary, not commission. But I'm not sure. Good luck, most feel good dealing with them but work after sale is hard too get...

We purchased our RV from them, we live in AZ and flew out to pick up the RV. The person we dealt with was Mr. Robert Brake. If I was going to purchase another RV from them, he is the one I would want to deal with. I found that his word on fixing anything that was wrong was good. I think that this e-mail address is still good. robertbrakemhs@msn.com

Yeah, like UncleBilly said, I think the 25-30% is off the new MSRP.

I've never heard of getting 25-30% off the advertised price of any unit, just discounted from the MSRP on NEW units.

With used units it depends on mileage, maintenance, how old the tires are, and general condition of the unit.... carpets, paint, upholstery, etc.

NADA offers what I consider guidelines on used units but again, it depends on what other units are going for and their condition.

Good luck!!

I purchased mine from MHSRV and they were the best pricing that I found for what I was looking to buy. Negotiated my trade over the phone and gave a $2k deposit to hold until I could drive down there. Straight up dealing, excellent PDI,. Do your homework on what the market is for the type of RV you are looking at and then you can make an educated decision for yourself. On used RV's its the condition and mileage that determines the price more so than what the book might say. Once again do your homework and educate yourself on the values and you will come out alright. Randy
