Negotiating a 2017 Sunseeker MBS 2400W.

My wife and I are looking at a 2017 Sunseeker MBS 2400W. The regular price is $112,585. Sale price is $91,499. The salesman told me they're aggressive with their pricing this weekend. How much room do I have to negotiate? What is a good price for this RV? The dealer has two others on the lot. Thanks, Frank

The list price on my Ford E450 based 3051S was ~$111,000 and I paid $79,000. So that should give you an idea of what yours should cost.

Another good way to tell is to look at your model on You'll see dealers selling at cheap prices and you can know what pricing to ask for and to have examples to show the dealer.

I just did search and found a number of them around $79k.

Try for sunseeker or for foresters. You can add options to match the rig your looking at

I don't believe the pricing is all that aggressive. Although it was over a year ago, we paid in the low $80K range for our Forester MBS 2401R with diesel generator and most options.

I bought a brand new Forester MBS 2401W in December for $79,900. It was on the other coast but was $12,000 less than dealers in my state. For $12,000 I said "I'm on my way!"

The dealer in my town only sells trailers but has been quite responsive to my warranty issues (LP regulator didn't work with temp in the 30's, it leaked a little rain due to torn slide seal, etc). He fixed everything without complaint.

The deals are out there for $80k, you just have to keep looking and either be willing to travel, or use that price as leverage in your area.

If you are willing to travel, I actually sent a request for quote to about a dozen random dealers all over America. About half of them responded including the $80k dealer. The deals are out there if you dig hard enough!

For those who don't know, the "W" model is the most expensive Mercedes Benz Sprinter (MBS) model due to it's full side slide which we love! It affords a walk around queen bed, bigger bathroom, etc in a 25' motor home with a turbo diesel V-6.

That's only 19% off of list price. You should be able to get at least another $10,000 off of that price.

We bought our 2400W in January at the RV show in Cleveland for just over $76,000. It came with all the bells and whistles, including two TV's, a grill, a vacuum, and an outside hookup for the grill. I love it and we are taking it across country in July. It doesn't have a diesel generator (it's propane), but other than that it pretty much has all the things we need.
