One big thing you've got going for you is that Berkshire is carried by Go there, select your model and options or select an in stock model, and request the price. Within a few minutes you will have a very good price, which you can use with your local dealers.

I just did this, yesterday and today, and completed a purchase of a Sunseeker Class C. Two dealers beat the RV Direct price, and the third came close. On the particular model I bought, if RVD's MSRP is to be believed, we got prices which were 38-40% off. I think that's on the high end of what might typically happen, because I think our model had a lot of fluff built into MSRP for some reason.

PS: They don't care if you are a cash buyer. In fact, they would rather finance you, and sometimes you'll get a lower price that way.

BTW, we have the same color scheme as well. Phil57 too. I think his and my serial numbers are like 6 apart.

True! Although Iove my color scheme and wouldnt trade it for any other. Even have thought of accenting the black by ditching the wheel covers and going with black powdercoated rims with chrome spiked lug nuts I will let you know my serial # so we can see if we are closely related as well HaHa. And I have been busy with mods making it just right for our family. It has been a good experience overall. Randy and Andy at FR have been a big help and a pleasure to work with. Plus we found a local self employed Master RV Mobile Tech guy for service that has been great so I will never have to deal with a substandard dealer again.

That ain't no lie!
