As a prior poster noted, the MSRP of RVs seems to be a completely made-up number. In the not too distant past, almost all RVs were sold at 30% or more off the MSRP without much arm twisting by the buyer. Usually the dealer advertised price was 20-25% less than MSRP and price negotiations would start there. When Covid hit, people realized that RVing was a great, safe way to avoid being imprisoned at home. Demand skyrocketed and dealers were able to sell everything on their lots for MSRP or close to. The B van market saw particularly dramatic increase in demand since B vans appeal to a demographic which has high disposable income, and #vanlife became even more popular. These new buyers were willing and able to pay what was being asked. Now the pendulum is swinging back to more normal market demand, but there continue to be supply shortages due to interruption of global supply chains for components. Since supply is very tight, prices have remained high for good quality, low manufacturing volume units like PleasureWay, where demand exceeds supply. Fall and winter typically see a steep fall-off in demand for new RVs, so there may be better buying opportunities later this year or early next. It would be smart for any new buyer try to gauge the level of supply on dealer lots, and how long units have been sitting in inventory, by using RV Trader or something similar. That can be an important tool for determining the amount of leverage they have in price negotiation. Good luck and happy shopping!
