The usual percentage off the MSRP could be anywhere from 20%-40% off depending on your dealer, when you buy, and what you buy. The bigger dealerships can usually give a higher % off because they carry a larger inventory. We ordered our Berkshire 38A from MotorHome Specialists in Alvarado, TX and we were very happy with the dealership and the deal we got. They beat the local dealership's prices in both trade in amount and sales price for the coach. Then when we got to the dealership to pick up the coach, the dealership gave us a loaner car to use for the 4 days we were there. That was a totally unexpected surprise! We are extremely happy with our Berkshire but if we ever did decide to upgrade (to another Berkshire, of course) we wouldn't hesitate to buy from MotorHome Specialists again.
The higher dollar coaches usually have a higher percentage off as an enticement to buy. And the "end of the year" sales will sometimes offer better prices.
Sites like RVTrader.com are great for comparing prices and inventory. And ordering our coach was important to us because we didn't want our coach in the general "test drive" population. Ordering also allowed us to get the exact color combination we wanted.
Good Luck with your RV search,
