The 30% off MSRP is a good target but I think a realistic target is 20-25% which is what to expect as RV show prices. I got 31% off on mine but it is through a well known low price online retailer, which I'm lucky enough they have a brick and mortar 2 hours away. But my true local dealers were at 20-23% with negotiation.

Have you taken delivery yet?
Another factor in if you got your money's worth is the treatment you get by your dealer. Did he give you a thorough walk through and explanation of how everything works and how to maintain it? Was he pleasant? Will he be reliable in dealing with any issues?

If yes, and if you are happy with your trailer, then you truly got a good deal.

Are you Ok on your payload? A 32 is a lot of camper for a half ton truck. Take a look at the sticker on your driver door frame of your F150, it should have a weight highlighted in yellow. This is the total amount of people, stuff, hitch and tongue weight your truck can carry.

With my F150 and 26' camper I am right on the edge with payload, so I can't put much in the bed of the truck.

I just load the rear of the camper instead of the bed. It pulls really well

That doesn't mean you aren't over the gvwr of the truck, and possibly the rear axle rating. How much does the family alone weigh? As mentioned, what is the yellow sticker payload amount?

It wouldn't hurt to take a trip to a CAT Scale to see just where you are weight wise. If you do decide to stop at the CAT Scale, follow my signature link for the how to to get all the weights. Will want to weigh 3 times.

And be very careful not to load to much in the rear of the camper. It is possible to lighten the tw to the point which will cause sway from having to light of a tw. Regardless of what wdh w/ sway control you have.

What are your wd bars rated for?

If you do upgrade your wdh with the dealer I wouldn't pay anymore. You can buy them online for 50% less than what they charged you.

Trailer $21,000.00
+Tax/tag/prep fee was about $3000
+$1000 for the WDH (equalizerhitch)
And I know but I bit on the extra 7 year warranty(9 years total with Jayco warranty) with a $100 deductible with lodging insurance for $1,500. I think they suckered me out $1500

My out the door price was about $26,495 with everything above. How do you think I did?
Hey I just put a down payment on one, about 15mins ago. You definately did not get ripped off... We will pick it up Friday. Lets talk numbers and options, I'll PM you. I did end up getting the "Elite" Package" and also the "Thermal" package, but only after also putting a deposit on the same unit without those two options at a dealer 20mins away so they battled it out... in the end we used the "oh, we didnt realize it didnt have the Thermal Package" to get our deposit back... not really sure that is really needed though... doesn't add much that you couldnt do yourself using rigid foam and some Great Stuff Foam to enclose the under carriage, and would probably be way better...
