Price Question

I know from reading on the forum that 30% discount off MSRP is the way to go but I have yet to see a dealer in my area go less than 20% on a 2012 or 2013 and I live in south ga and have contacted 4 different dealers. That being said one dealer still has a few left over 2010`s that he has discounted 35 % off MSRP is that fair or should it be more since they are 3 model yrs old ? I have sold my current travel trailer so we are looking even harder. Thanks for any advice.

Try a quote from RV direct then approach one of your dealers to see if they will do better. If not then maybe a trip to Orlando is within your future.

We got about 31% off a 2012 model in August.

We got pretty close to 30% off MSRP in the end as well. The initial price they gave us was about 25% off MSRP. We negotiated in the WDH and a year of free storage at their facility, figuring it's all semantics. Ultimately it worked out to about 30%. We went in with our "wildest dreams" offer, figuring their counter offer would be the price we were looking to pay. We were all satisfied in the end. (I crunch the numbers and then make my husband do the dirty work)

Sometimes you do have to drive a bit...I passed up about 10 dealers on the way to mine and got a really good deal. Keep calling - you will find one that wants to deal.

Since the 2013`s have been out since May, the 2010`s are 3+ years old now. The markdown would have to be really impressive to start out with a "new" 3 year old trailer. The tires have already aged as well as the sealants. Some dealers will not budge much off MSRP, I tried one that would only come down about 10%. Ended up going with RV direct, ordered exactly what we wanted and got a factory fresh unit for over 30% off MSRP.

Last winter we got about 30% off a brand new 2012 model.

They would have to be almost giving away a “new” 3 year old TT, for me to consider buying it.

I live in southern Michigan and the best deals on Jaycos in this area is at the rv connection in Middlebury, Indiana. They are located 2 1/2 miles from the Jayco factory and seem to be consistent with 30% off msrp. You can go to there website at www.yourrvconnection.com and pick out the unit you want with any options you would like and get a quote in a matter of a few hours.

IMHO don't get all hung up on % off MSRP. MSRP wildly manipulated by the selling dealers. Some places buffer MSRP to include a PDI/Dealer Prep charges, other include delivery of the trailer while some have both and others have none. All the matters is you feel comfortable with the deal. If you are solely focused on getting the "best deal" then all you can do is try to negotiate at several places and see what you get, then compare to RV Direct and other Internet wholesalers. There is always someone who will be able to buy better than you because of the specific curcumstances around thier situation...at the same time there is always someone who will do worse.

If you are financing, be sure to bring your own financing don't rely exlusivly on the dealer provided options. We financed, had our own prearranged, didn't tell the dealer but wanted to see what they could offer. Thier best options was 2 pts higher than what we had already arranged.

One good thing about the Jayco website is you can "build and price" any RV they offer there. So actual MSRP can be determined. Not all manufacturers offer this feature which puts you completely at the mercy of dealers when trying to determine actual MSRP.
