Confused :/

Hi there recently signed papers for a new tt. I am wondering what your bill included?The dealership I am dealing with told me I have to pay the cost of the tt plus tax. $299. admin fee. $150 financing fee. $20 tire tax. I would also get 15% of accessories. I called three other dealerships. One of them charged a $199 admin fee. The others didnt. I am being hosed for being a woman? Also I heard the admin fee was to fill propane tanks battery and paper work. Any info would be appreciated

We are all the victims of the "shell" game. It's easy to offer a bottom line price when you add in operating fees for anything and everything when its contract time. Everyone from car dealers to tire dealers do it......on my list of "Optional Equipment, Labor and Accessories" on the contract..."Aluminum Rim Swap, Fill LP, Clean, Pre-Delivery Inspection, Install WDH, Install Brake Control, Demonstration, Lien Fee $5, Doc Fee $129, Processing Fee $3"

Is your DMV on their anywhere? I think we had to pay $100 just for new plates. Plus the registration fee. Maybe that's it? I would ask them specificallly what the admin fee covers. Ours came with both lp tanks filled along with a fresh water hose, some black tank blue stuff packets, sewer hoses, adapters and some other little things, but that was just part of their "customer care" package or whatever they want to call it. They include it with every trailer purchase at my dealer.

Documentation Fee (Calif) $55
Vehicle License Fee (Calif) $279
"Other" $8
(we did not finance - no fee)
(as well as Calif Sales tax - no getting out of that one and in our state happened to be way too high)


We get 10% discount if we choose to purchase supplies through the dealer

Although we took our rvdirect quote to Richardson's in Calif (of which they honored that quote), we did all the paperwork through Indiana RV Connection down the street from Jayco in Middlebury (owned by Richardson's) when we picked it up 'from the factory'. I'm not sure what the admin fee is, but if it's the new trend, I'm guessing we will see it when we go to 'upgrade'

I should mention my dealer "threw-in" a Camco RV Starter Kit (5 gal Bucket) w/ cleaning supplies, wash, hoses, septic treatment....etc. I also receive a lifetime discount card worth 10% off any parts purchases.

Really don't get dragged into the weeds on charges, the actual out-the-door price is the one you need to shop around with. I asked dealers to provide the final price, I went with the best deal and that was RVDirect.

The dealer starter package is, at best, slightly better then junk. Cheapest slinky, cheapest fresh water hose, etc.... That's hardly a bargaining chip given a trip to Walmart could get you the same stuff for $15.

We delt with our local Jayco dealer and recieved alot of extras, discounts on things we purchased like deflappers, extention cord. Got a great deal for the trade in, he installed the new hitch on our truck for just the cost of the hitch and no labor fee. He gave us the plate from the old camper just to get us home..we do all the DMV paperwork ourselves. No fees, just the price of the camper after trade in, tax and thats it. Double check everything....
