Price negotiation

I understand every dealer is different, but is there an average percentage that you can expect to get them to go down on the price? We have bought and negotiated cars, but new to the TT world. When paying in cash do you immediately process a certain amount off in your mind ~ then negotiate that?

We would like to walk in one step ahead, so I appreciate opinions/advice.

Thank you!

Look at this thread, good info on price negotiations:

https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2360

I started out by getting pricing from RV Direct and used that as a basis to get pricing from my dealer.

BTW, I might add I also used Indiana RV Connection, They are located in Middlebury Indiana, the same as where the Jayco factory is. I don't know if they are a "factory outlet or not, but I also got very good pricing from them as well.

If doing cash no trade expect price to drop a lot depending on year and model.

I bought mine at Keystone RV in Greencastle PA. which is not far from you. I got my brand new 2014 X17a for 13500 which was 600 less than quotes from Indiana.

When I called them about the unit,willing to pay the advertised price of 14000, she said she would go and she if she could do better for me. I didnt even ask.

I saved over 6000 from buying it locally.

We are looking at a x254. I just realized this is a new model, so I don't have a whole lot of comparison to use other than out of state prices. A local place has it lowered to 22,900 and that is $100 cheaper than what I can find online so far (out of state).

Thanks!

Check tax rates if buying out of state you might not be saving anything when u do that.

This may work for some trailers but I would expect more on others. I bought mine the first of June and the MSRP was 20300 and I bought it for 13500 plus my dealer (Keystone RV Mega Center) didnt charge anything for PDI, DOC. Other than tire levy and temp tag I was out the door for 13526.
