Deal or no Deal?

We are looking to purchase our first TT. Been negotiating with different dealers and believe I am at the best deal I am going to get. MSRP is $22,954. Lowest price so far is $15,062.00. Deal or no Deal?

My advice would be that if at the end of the day you are happy with the deal then go for it.

X2. It is a good deal if you are happy with both the tt and the price. Once the deal is made, DON'T WORRY about whether you could have gotten another $100 or $500 or whatever off the price. Just enjoy your new travel trailer.

Congratulations on whatever you get

Make sure you're getting out the door pricing. That includes taxes, license, prep, etc. You might want to include hitch too if you need one. Get one or two other quotes from competing dealers, on line or wherever. You then can really see how competitive the dealer you have is. You might be able to get a lower price if you can show a better price elsewhere. Also consider the reputation of the dealer and their service. You WILL have service issues and you want to able to take it back where customer loyalty means something. Sometimes paying more for a dealer that is easier to drive too makes more sense than buying long distance.

I strongly suggest you follow this. I would gladly pay $$$ for better service than I am getting now.

price the Shamrock's twin, the Roo 183 from RVW and RVDirect and use their prices for comparison.
if it's close, go with the local Shamrock dealer. they are the exact same trailers.

Service after the sale is more important than saving a few bucks. Choose your dealer wisely. Then

I've been looking at the Roo 183 model as suggested above, got quotes from RVDirect of $15,630, which was beat by Wana Rv in Indiana, they quoted $15,250. Can't find one from RV Wholesalers, but I think their price was a bit higher. Are you buying one off the lot or ordering? The prices I quoted were for ordered units. Really like this model! Good luck
