2015 Jayco X18D - first time buyer

Hello,
New to the forum, and my eyes are going crosseyed reading up on everything!! We are researching buying our first trailer and are set on the X18D for our family. We are in Canada, but the best pricing seems to be coming from south of the border What is a good price on new 2015? RV Direct is quoting $16,604 (including power package, 2in lift kit, and underbelly protection). Problem is the pick up in Iowa, heading that far East is not an option for us. Dealer south of the border from us is quoting 18,500 for the same. Are these good quotes? We thought it was a good idea to buy in the fall - is this true? Or should we wait for early spring?

Finally, if there is no budging on price, what 'extras' can we ask for them to throw in for us?

Thanks in advance.

Remember to factor in the exchange on the dollar as well as the Warranty. Dealers are not going to be doing back flips to work on your trailer if it needs repairs...at any time. They work on their own costumers units first.

That $18500 in US currency is $20500 in Canadian money, add in the cost to bring it across the boarder including paper work and fees and the difference in savings need to cover this plus plus before I would considered buying south. Go to a dealer in Calgary and let them bid for your business...

it is only 220 dollars....there are no other fees. paperwork is as easy as going to the store for milk.

Just did it in June. Fortunately for me the rates were only 10percent

X18d

We bought a brand new 2014 X18D in Feb. 2014. I shopped extensively online using RVdirect to get quotes on the units I liked. When the time came to make the deal, I took the quote from RVDirect to my local dealer and used it as a negotiating point. In the end they got within $500 of the RVdirect price and I decided that for that amount it was worth it to buy local. I was fortunate that I could have driven to the RVdirect Albany facility in 3 hours to pick up that unit if needed. I would shop the price around to multiple dealers if you can and see if you can get their price down. I wouldn't expect to get them to match it, but they should get close. Then you have to decide how much are you willing to pay to keep it local?

We do love our X18D! We towed it from CT all the way to the Outer Banks this summer (best trip in years), and are towing it all the way to Disney in February!

Good luck!
