Fair price?

Looking at a new 2016 Berkshire 40bh with upgraded 380h motor. Dealer says I'm getting a steal at $201000 at 3.99% with 10% down. Is this a steal, average or bad price?

Thanks

It depends on if you are willing to travel or not.

When I was looking for ours in 2013, the best deal I could get locally was $205,000 on a 390BH-60. I looked online and started calling making offers. While I was talking to one salesman he told me there was a $10,000 rebate available also. I ended up getting one in Seattle for $149,900. Well worth the time and cost to fly in and drive back.

Check on the internet and make some offers. All they can do is tell you no.

I agree with badman, it's does require however that you find a motivated dealer. Your best pricing will be on a unil that is 1 model year old that has not left the lot. This is how I buy all of my vehicles .... why not let the dealer eat that first year of depreciation.

You will get a better price from the internet. Most of those sellers are volume dealers and make their money on moving product instead of worrying about how much they pocket on each sale. I agree with the above, if you can travel, to say Dallas, I'm certain you will get a much better deal.

sirozz - I have gotten 33% off of MSRP, plus an additional what I thought a fair price for my trade. I did travel 1,000 miles to buy and was exactly this time of the year in 2011.

Timing your buy is crucial. This time of the year is great and also at the very end of the month (like now). Also a full-moon (LOL).

I do not understand the "2016 Georgetown 350XL". If the price includes your trade, it is not good.

I agree, if this is the price without a trade, your getting a 33% discount, which, IMHO is a fair/'good price. If your trade is included, the deal is less than optimal. You should be able to do better, the 30-33% is where you should be BEFORE any trade consideration/negotiation!! You should also research the trade-in value of your unit and demand that you receive this price minus the cost to correct any issues that need attention on your unit.

I paid 200k for 2015 40BH + they through in vent covers and the best dish system I could find and a real oven. I bought in October of 2014 at Hershey. The next day a local dealer offered 10k more off if I would ask for my deposit back.

As far as trades I took the time to consign my older rv to another dealer and did well. Trading in anything and you get hammered
