Expected discount off of MSRP for special ordering an ORV

Hello all. I wish everyone a happy holidays and hope all are well.

We are looking to order a travel trailer after the New Years. We keep our stuff a long time, so I am inclined to special order it so as to get whatever bell or whistle we'd like. Plus, with the non standard experiences in the RV industry this 2020, many of the dealers say a special order is faster that waiting for a dealer restock.

We live in CO and expect to mostly do boondocking and national forest campgrounds. And, we'd like to capitalize on the ORVs ability to stretch your camping season into the early winter.

Knowing that the RV industry is very generally a "25-30% off of MSRP", what do you consider as a discount for an ORV from MSRP?

Thank you in advance!

Alan

From what I'm reading on the Internet, a lot of RVs are backordered and difficult to come by. It's also said that RVs are selling so fast the dealers aren't willing to discount because they can get full price.

I don't know if all that's true or not but that's what I've been seeing and hearing from other boondocker's around me.

I spend my summers in Colorado and lived in Teller County for over 30 years before I went full-time and I'm finding a lot of boondocking spots in the National Forest are full or pretty crowded during the summer.

The discount you are talking about typically applies to RV's.. Not Travel Trailers..
You will be hard pressed to get much of a discount...........

Check with Holiday RV in Poncha Springs. They gave us a pretty decent discount although admittedly that was before the pandemic.

Travel Trailers (TT's) are RV's (Recreational Vehicles).

I would to go Rvtrader.com or RVT.com and see what folks are asking. Then knock a little more off of that. There really is no standard although 25-30% seems to be pretty normal. Good luck.

Also ORV does small batch builds so there is no difference between getting one off the lot vs speical order. Once you decide on which model and trim level you want the number of options is rather limited. IMHO the best boondocking series is the BackCountry as they come standard with both solar and a generator. Next would be the Trail Series.

Ok....will do! That was where we discovered the ORVs initially. We happened to stop there while driving by about 3 yrs ago. We were just looking at that point, but really did like the ORVs and Lance's that they had.

Ok...thank you! I will check those 2 models out! I think when we found one that we really liked 3 yrs ago that it was a mountain timber ridge or so.

We ordered our '21 Back Country 24KRS from Holiday RV in Colorado. Got 16% off MSRP. Was happy with that considering the market conditions this year. We picked it up in late September.

That is awesome! We plan to order something in January. We aren't really in a huge hurry as our backcountry boondocking spots don't tend to open until June-ish; depending on snowfall. That doesn't mean we can't head towards UT earlier, of course, if it is ready earlier. It would be great to have a dealer "somewhat close"; Poncha Springs is only about 3 hours from us in Ouray.

BTW the production schedule is already set for the coming months - most dealers know the schedule and have placed orders against it. So I would find a dealer and get that schedule so you can plan accordingly.

Ok....thank you. That is strategic info to know.

I just looked on rvtrader at the Holiday RV here in CO. They seem to be fairly well stocked. Of course, the keeping their inventory details squared away with rvtrader is a factor too.
