Ok to get a Leftover?

again brand new to this so pls help. Any reason to stay clear of one sitting on lot for 8 months?
Of course we would demand full inspection but anything else??

Either order ''16 Northpoint 38FLFS (front liv room) or get same deal on a '15 Pinnacle 36FBTS(lg bath) that better suits us & seems like better built unit.

Pls help asap- Thanks Norm & Dee

I'd say no. A lot of RV's sit on lots for a while. When we were buying ours, they had TT's that had been there for months. Nice floorplans too. I think as they sell, they order more and maybe they don't front the older model. Everyone wants the "brand new shiny" ones that arrive. Maybe the floorplan is not a heavy seller. I know a lot of people like the bunkhouse models and they sell like crazy. It seemed we were the only people out there NOT looking for a bunkhouse and we ended up with a beautiful trailer. Or the color combo is not as desirable as others. Alot of circumstances can keep an RV on a lot for awhile. Most times, there's nothing wrong with it...just happenstance. Just inspect thoroughly.

If they mark the price down for being a 15 and its what you want I would say go for it, provided of course the inspection is satisfactory. Not at all uncommon for dealers to have leftovers on the lot, they usually price them to sell...

We saved a ton of money and got a great interest rate (not marked up from the bank to the dealer) by buying a '13 model after the '14's were on the lot.

The dealer was motivated to sell, and the camper was just about exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have gotten this much camper by buying during the current model year.

We bought a leftover 11 , 351rlts a few months after the 2012's came out. It had been on the dealers lot and we even looked at it 6 months earlier.
It was marked way down and has been a great buy.
The 2 year warranty starts when you buy it.

I would buy it from our dealer, that is the critical part of the equation, the dealer. Dealers order units based on what they hope may sell, or it may have been ordered for a customer who backed out.

We bought ours a show. It was a model year leftover and almost exactly what we had been discussing for years. My wife told the salesman."This is it!" We'll take it." two minutes after entering the unit. He was amazed. We saved a bunch of money and have had zero regrets.

I bought my Designer as a leftover 2010 after the new Pinnacle's were announced and the Designer series was discontinued. I liked the floor plan, the Designer was much much better equipped than any of the new Pinnacle's......No Question For Me!

5+ years full time later I'm still happy with this decision.

What makes the Pinnacle a "better built" unit?
I have been in many 2015 Pinnacles at my dealer, but in no way do I see any difference between my 2016 North Point and the Pinnacle, besides the heftier price tag
In fact I notice better in my North Point. The under side of the bedroom floor is foil wrapped.. The basement storage is better.. The roof material is rapped around the edge. Doesn't have a rear cap, but that's not worth an extra 10k or more $$ to me. The fridge is better. The ground control 3.0 is better. The battery compartment is better. The steps are better.
