Base for negotiating is 30-35% off
the MSRP if it's new year model (check WIN #), if its current year model (second part of the year) you
try to do 37,5% off the MSRP).
Good luck ....!!!!!

Try Everything is 20-40% off retail plus monthly specials. In May of 2014, I was able to save 38% on my 2014 Solera. The savings were well worth the trip!

We bought a Coachman Freelander and after much shopping and calling around ended up buying it for 35% of the MRSP Build Sheet without a trade in. With a trade in 30% is a fair price. If they don't accept your offer just move on. A Salesman or Sales Manager are going to shoot you a good line of BS that they don't have that kind of mark up and play poor mouth but believe me they have at least a 33% mark up or perhaps more with the factory incentives. I know for sure after having bought over 20 Motorhomes.

I am new to RV-ing but just bought a 2014 Sunseeker on the Ford E450. We paid $67,999 Canadian dollars or roughly $82,000 U.S. The original price I'm told was $130,000 U.S. I think you could possibly make an offer at $10,000 less but as I say, I'm pretty green behind the ears.

We bought our 2016 Sunseeker 3010DS on the E450 chassis in January of this year on a unit we ordered last October. We got most of the bells and whistles including the automatic leveling system (could not live without that) and the dual recliners instead of the sleeper sofa. List price was $102K and we came in just under $70K. Love the unit, love our dealer AND love the back up from Forest River on a specific warranty issue. I know of at least two dealers in Ohio (ours included) whose pricing is conducive to buying there.

Thanks for all the great information. My wife and I looked at three other RV dealerships over the weekend and noticed some RVs now use the Ford Transit diesel. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of Ford vs. Mercedes diesel? Does the Ford have the same fuel economy and pickup? Would the Ford be easier to service because there are more Ford dealers across the country?

On May 5th I purchased a 2017 Forester 2401R MBS for $82,900. We ordered it with all the options. We are now on our maiden voyage to the Great Smoky Mountains. No problems so far.

I bought mine with about every option and paid $80k. Granted it's a 2016, S floorplan. I would have considered a Ford Transit chassis, but it's not offered in a floor plan I was interested in.
