New Mh prices discount?

Looking at new dp and wondering what % of the MSRP you should pay? Heard 35% off is great deal but really don't, any suggestions?

Depends on a number of things, such as options, when you purchase, where you purchase, the market, cash or finance, etc. We got way more than 35% off, but we bought at the end of the year from a high volume dealer.

I think it really does depend on a lot of things.... but these days 35% might be a good rule of thumb. We bought ours early in 2007 when things were still jumping and got about 23% off. Probably could have done better even then but we were newbies.

Once you decide on the make/model rig you want you might Google it and find dealers across the country who have them advertised for sale. I sent out about 12 emails to such dealers explaining that I was going to buy this type of rig and asked for their best price. Some wouldn't reply with a price via email but about half did. This gave me ammunition when negotiating with my local dealer. I paid about a 2% premium to buy locally but felt it was worth it.

Good luck

Rick

Smaller dealers usually don't discount deeply, but you may find one that is desperate to move an item and get a super deal. Larger dealers (high volume) can discount more deeply as a general practice, but these days not many are going much beyond 20-23%. I'm sure there are exceptions, though, so shop around.

A dealer will typically offer about 14% discount off MSRP and then you have to negotiate for every penny extra.

It also depends on whether you are looking at the actual MSRP sticker or the doctored up dealer MSRP sticker. Camping World and a lot of dealers will use a sticker that they make up on their computer and stick in the motorhome. These stickers are marked up anywhere from 10 to 15 percent, that way the dealer can give you a "30% discount" and make you a "real deal" on your trade in. I always asked to see the original factory MSRP (and factory invoice... sometimes they will show it to you) I've always found the factory MSRP will have a "water mark" on it.

I bought mine at 30% off the Winnebago sticker. I actually have the bank transaction paperwork between the bank & Winnebago to allow the release of the coach to the dealer. 30% off MSRP was what the dealer paid for it. When I showed the offer to my local Winnebago dealer he asked me how he made any money on the sale? Told him that wasn't my problem. My goal was to keep as much money in my pocket as possible.

Yes, ask for a manufacturer's build sheet.
