My dealer is going set my hitch on my new truck for free because I bought the camper 3 years ago from them. My friend bought the same camper on Craig's list and they charged him $35 for his.

Best price I could find on an Equalizer hitch plus ball was about $525. I made a deal with CW to sell and install for $700. Worth it to me, even if it only takes them an hour.

CW has a per hour labor charge of $120. I think that is insane.

I too bought my hitch prior to PDI. I showed up and asked them to install. Recall they charged $100 or so. After about a year I wound up tweaking it a little. Also discovered several bolts needed tightening after a few trips. This was for the X23B.

That's low - around here the Hourly is 175-200/hour at most RV shops, if your not doing mechanical work on a Motorcoach it's high dollar - mechanical rates run right at 105-120/hour.

We were just looking at a new TT this past weekend. The salesman stated that if we did purchase, he would ensure that they transferred my hitch to the new unit at no cost to me. The cost would probably be hidden in there somewhere, but he pointed out that they would do it and not charge me.

Throwing an hour's billable time in the deal for no cost doesn't impact the salesman's commission, it's just good business. The tech gets paid if he's billable or not and if you don't interrupt billable work it doesn't cost the dealership anything extra. When trading in my X23B I gave the dealership the hitch (upgrading to a 5th) and my brake control. Sales guy said that they could use "free hitch or brake control" to sweeten the deal for the next buyer. I got what was, to me, a good price and the dealership was easy to work with so I let that stuff go.

Well, I got the 23MB today! I brought in all my WDS equipment and they set it all up and didn't charge a thing. My suggestion to those that are buying is to tell them you will purchase the WDS on your own and bring it in for them to install as part of the purchase. Just my 10 cents. Hopefully this helps others.
