20% off msrp

Do you guys think it is fair to ask for at least 20% the msrp of your unit?? I will be talking to my salesman tomorrow. Of course he was off for the last 2 days...I really need help with the finance part of buying stuff....one of my biggest weaknesses.....I am easily pushed over

Ask for 40% off MSRP. Seriously, it is not uncommon for people, including me, to get 30% off MSRP. The salesman will likely blow a gasket, but at least he will know you are not a pushover.

Try for 30, can`t hurt. And make sure the MSRP is legit. Go to the Jayco website where you can ''build and price" the model in question with the same options. Freight will be extra. Some dealers add padding to the MSRP with things like prep fees, etc. Beware of this as well.

Get a few online quotes to give you an idea what other dealers will do. Then you can use that to try and help with getting a better price. Or to make sure you already getting a good price.

RVDirect will email you a quote and you don't have to talk to anyone. That's how we got the ball rolling. We got quotes from a few dealers we found online and some dealers mentioned on here but I can't remember them all now.

I'm like you, mesue. Hate to negotiate. Maturity seems to have "turned" me tho. The bride said she was just short of embarrassed when we were buying the 5er. Like the prev suggestions, angle for 30%, don't start there but work to get there. When you feel you've gotten all you can, angle for some add-ons like slide toppers, hitch or pin box upgrade, upgraded slinky (I like sewer solution), $xx credit to the parts department ( giving you $1500 in "stuff" or service might only cost them $500).
And always be ready to say "no thanks" and walk if you just can't get to where you want to be (you may get home and have a call telling you "ok", but maybe not). Don't let 'em shame or guilt you into paying more.
If you make the deal don't accept any add-ons at closing like prep, PDI, fabric coating, sealant..... It's just a way to get more of your $$$.

I apologize for the rant.

30% is a good starting point. It also depends on which model (the humming bird is a fast seller. )
which model and which region are you purchasing from?

If the model you want is in stock and is ready to go, theres a value in that as well.


Keep us all informed and updated.

For negotiations, start at 50% off list and be willing to wait through the sales rep visiting the sales manager 4-6 times. Increase your offer by 1/2 of the amount the dealer increases at each round.


Bring a shill to talk to the sales rep while you have time to consider their latest counter.


They will make a profit or they won't sell the unit.

I just brought home my first RV yesterday, it is an entry level model so things may change with price level, but I think paying 65-70% MSRP is totally realistic, and even better deals are out there if you are patient. I will tell you that we shopped for a long time and visited a lot of dealers and watched internet prices. Take your time and if the sales rep isn't willing to play ball find another dealer.

I got 42% off, Check RV direct for an idea on price, then talk to your dealer. Just be sure to compare apples for apples. Our friends got a price from RV direct, went to our local dealer showed them the price, they came within 1k of the RV direct price, plus threw in a few items, They got a great deal on a beautiful 5th wheel. Good luck to you!
