Something I found out at the factory. Since ALL Berks are FBP, the Diesel Division "eats" the cost of the FBP. When you go "Deluxe" (e.g., the Labyrinth or Redstone custom paint jobs) FR adds an additional $1.7K to the MSRP.

I am sure FR would love to sell a Berk in primer - saves them money

Considering the fact that Lazy Days tends to be higher priced than many other dealers I would think you could pick up an XLT for somewhere near $250 or even less. That does make it very attractive.

$250 would be about 30% off list. Sounds reasonable.

Ok this is very minor but a pet peeve of mine. How does any company get away with a fuel surcharge. Fuel is at a ten year low and they get off charging for fuel. I'm just not buying and that's the reason.

Phil, I just found a couple of MSRP sheets from my dealer in Indiana and there were no fuel surcharges, so that charge is probably their estimated fuel cost for delivery to a particular area. They probably figure why should they eat the cost of transportation to more distant areas.

First they hit you with a $1,190 "Freight" fee and then a $197.00"Fuel Surcharge"? All the delivery services I know , fuel is included in their charge to the dealer.

Hey Subsailor, mind sharing what your "Freight fee" was?

I bought at Lazydays at -33%. You would be better off negotiating over the phone between two or more dealers.
