We just purchased our 2014 Lacrosse 327RES at 33% less than MSRP, and had the dealer throw in the weight dist/sway control hitch.

I did what Lou mentioned - I contacted two different online "wholesalers" to establish what a bargain basement number was.

I also did what MillerTime talked about and ordered my unit. I was able to contact 3 local dealers and have them price fight on exact units (exact model, completely identical list of options, etc.).

Just got our XLR a couple of weeks ago and they started at 30% and got them down to 32%, that was as good a price as the online wholesales.

My SolAire Tavel Trailer MSRP was $42,000 and I bought it for $28,000.. about 33% off MSRP. I have seen the model like mine without the slide out kitchen on dealer lot's a few times asking $32-$34k. They threw in a pack of Lynx Levelers, starter kit, folding step stool, etc..

Thinkin I got a pretty decent deal.

I got mine for 38.5% off MSRP. Although mine was a model that they only had one of and it didn't have the candy-coated front with the cool boy LEDs. I'm fine with it though because I wanted to cut down the hitch weight some anyway.

Of course you're talking fifth wheel here so I'm not sure on those but I bet it would be a little less of MSRP, maybe 5% difference.

We've always got 25% on motorhomes, and anywhere from 30-37% off on the towables. We've had better luck with special orders since they are in / out to the dealer and won't sit for a month on the lot. Not sure if this has been mentioned, but a lot of dealers mark their MSRP up, to make it look as if you're getting XX% off the MSRP. They can pretty much name what they want. If you're lucky, you can get the actual MSRP from the manufacturer with options that you want. I noticed in the last several months that our dealer quit posting the MSRP sheet from the factory like they used to. Now you can just see the options. So, I'd be willing to bet they too are jacking up the retail to give you a "deal".

A good deal = When you are happy, and the dealer is happy.

If you don't have a trade in, see how low they will go and/or how hungry they are for that week to make the sell...they will only say no...but to your surprise, maybe yes to a 35-38% mark down

I've been pricing the Roo 21SSL. Checking close to home and spanning out if I don't get the price I'm looking for. So far, Denver and Colorado Springs dealers aren't willing to budge. Probably something to do with the time of year. Then the story about how popular this model is.

The guy in the Springs was a little rude with his reply. He lost a customer forever.

I was at Costco yesterday and saw that you can purchase RV's through them. I wonder how good a price they can get. May be worth checking out
