Post Newbie here

Hi all,

Just thought I would say thanks for all the advice i found here. Looking at buying our first TT and thought it would be good to read thru some of the posts here at this site before I sign a check.

Glad I did, makes me feel like I can make a much more informed decision.

looking at a new Jayco 287BHBE, 2014

I have the dealer at about 26% off the sticker price, don't know if I will get to the full 30% but we will see.

Thanks again for a great site.

Keep working them we got over 30% on ours and it was a new build not dealer stock, get a free quote from rv direct and compare the two that will tell you how much more room you have, we did not buy from rv direct but used it as a price guide for leverage

Still working it, have another 5% off, that would be around 31% total if my math is right.

Welcome to JOF. Mark up on RVs is high. Even at 31% I bet the dealer is making money.

Welcome - this is a great site to learn from. We just bought our 2nd new Jayco, the first from RV Direct and this one from a closer dealer.

Well we did it, have it home now. We were able to get the price we wanted and a few extras like upgraded sewer hose, clear 45 deg elbo, wheel chocks, water hose, ect.....

They were still smiling so I don't think we were to hard on them. Were able to by local, less that 12 miles from the house.

Thanks for all the help here, this is a great sight for us newbies. I am sure I will have lots of questions as we get a chance to use our new home away from home.
