Looks like they're under 30% MSRP... Good deal to me. If I were you I'd tell them I'd give them $34000 now, out the door.

Good luck!

jayman, I got a 33% discount on my 2016 23RLSW I have on order. The 2017 model will be out soon.

Personally I would try for 35% on a 2015 model. Prep also seems high. My shipping costs are about $3800 to SoCal.

It's your call and what you are comfortable with. Wireman

Looks like a good deal especially if it truly has $9000+ in options. It's a 2015 so they are wanting to move it. Pull the trigger

Jayman don't price the Coleman Tent Trailer to low because someone might wonder why?
The time is right to sell now because many are looking. Just be patience it will sell.
In the winter I put 15K on mine and moved to 17K a month ago............it sold after a week for the price I wanted. Don't they say you only need the right buyer.

About the delivery charge: For that price you can pick it up yourself in Indiana and have a nice vacation too.

I was actually wrong on the price they were selling it for...it was 33,996 not 34,996 as I stated earlier. I've been debating this all day. 30+ grand for a trailer. The sales manager just called to give me final details and I know he was waiting for an answer for the go ahead...I just couldn't pull the trigger....lol!!!

Jayman, I know the dealer as we bought a White Hawk from them one year ago. I remembered they posted the invoice of each unit and see that the Eagle you are looking at doesn't show one but a 2015 White Hawk does. And, the destination charge is $3482.00. Looks like the standard.

Good luck with your final decision. Good folks at the dealer, though.

Price seems decent. As for the tongue jack, It isn't hard to swap it out, and you can probably get a lot better jack for about the same, or a little more than what the dealer will sell you one for, unless they throw it in the deal.

Our last trailer I replaced our old power jack with an Atwood 4K robofoot model. While I didn't use the robofoot, I was very happy with the Atwood. Never seems lacking in power, with ~920lb tw.

What wdh are you looking at? Look for one with integrated sway control. Reese Dual Cam, Reese SC, and the Equal-I-Zer 4 way system are all very good models. Make sure to get the correct rated wd bars for your trailer once it is loaded. As a comparison, our 910lb "brochure" dry tw is about 1400lbs loaded, ready to camp. Also plan on re-adjusting the wdh once the trailer is loaded, ready for a trip. The dealer adjusts the wdh to an empty trailer. Follow the links in my sig for the how to.

Good luck!!!!

X2. We paid $3000 to SoCal.

If dealer is calling you, you are probably in a good position to squeeze a little more from that lemon.

Those "options" might be listed as such, but to leave the factory without them it would have been considered a "special order". You pay premium for those "options" now, but you will be told that they were "base" when the time comes to trade the unit in. Destination fee seems high. It seems like the dealer has a mark-up on that, even though it's supposed to be a direct pass-through cost from the factory to the customer to offset delivery costs. For a left-over 2015, the dealer probably has a factory incentive to get rid of it, if it's on consignment. If its NOT on consignment, than the dealer has an out of pocket expense incentive to sell. Either way, it looks to me like you may be leaving too much money on the table with the proposed deal....

Ask the dealer if they'll install an electric tongue jack at no extra charge. Sometimes, a dealer will "sweeten" their deal with add-on's like that. If they will, I'd jump on it! If not, it's still good deal. You can pick up a decent tongue jack for under $200, and they're easy to install yourself (don't ask me how I know).

As for your old Coleman, I guess I'm one of those folks that feel my time/convenience are worth a lot. I'd let the dealer take it in trade for the $5K they're offering.
