Although mine is a 2015, it was interesting to see the current pricing. I am happy with the final deal, the local dealer matched what was an excellent price and trade that was from a dealer 2 hours away. For the most part, everyone want the best possible price, many will work to that end with research, traveling (internet or road) and plain ole' dickering. For myself, so do I. I also want the local dealer to be successful, profitable so that the business remains open.
The link is useful, bookmarked for later reference

Bought a Wolf Pup over the weekend for 54% of MSRP. The referenced link matched the MSRP listed on the sheet inside my trailer, without the added "limited" package that supposedly adds $3,625. If the link is accurate, then, the dealer lost money on my trailer. That obviously can't be the case since I didn't even negotiate. I took their "internet" price because I already felt like I was getting a great deal.

Long story short, I still feel like I got a great deal.

As a former Regional Sales Manager for truck equipment manufacturers the rule of thumb was the dealer had to make an average of 22% gross profit to stay in business. Service and parts sales are where the most profit is made since that is seldom negotiated. Let's be honest, no dealer is going sell at a loss. The best deal is the one you feel comfortable with.

I think, depending on the geographical location combined with season, along with age of NOS... Some dealers will sell at a loss.. I know of five dynamax Super C MH that are selling below cost right now. All are 2015. Depending on the unit, some may cut their looses, and put that money into inventory that sells..

According to this site, my dealership is actually losing money?

That website's values are worthless. No one, including that website, knows what any dealers individual deal and costs are with a manufacturer and they're all different.

Going by that website my dealer made $400, another where I received a quote was breaking even. Another I looked at online is losing $1000.

Its good for research seeing what options are listed at etc, but as far as the dealers true cost......Nope.

and don't forget if the dealer actual does 'lose' money it becomes a business loss tax reduction.

EXACTLY! I couldn't agree more. I want a fair deal, I don't begrudge the dealer making a fair & reasonable profit. Of course, I also don't want them to make their weeks profit goal on ME!
