Dealer Pricing

Is the average cut off for dealer pricing 30% from MSRP? When I picked up my trailer they forgot to remove the manufacturers info. I got to see how much they paid for my RV. I ended up paying them 25% over their cost which was 30% under MSRP.

Needless to say it was an eye opening discovery.

Eye opening indeed. You should be getting lifetime Christmas cards from your salesman.

I paid right at 65% of the MSRP price. That's after shopping all over the world and comparing many of the "wholesale price" dealers. I'm happy.

MSRP looks like they are made up by the dealer. I too saw the dealer invoice and I paid 30% under what the dealer said the MSRP was, but the dealer only made 6% over invoice.

Yes dealers set what ever MSRP they want. They can vary by thousands for the same exact unit.

If you search the web you can find invoice price sheets, not always the model you are looking for though. When I was shopping I found this site to use as a reference:

Paid 71% of Retail price. I guess I left some $$ on the table.

The most important is how you feel. I am happy with what I paid also.

X2. We paid 65% as well. And then only after shopping around for countless internet hours, comparing Dealer Internet prices, and then negotiating the best deal between dealers. Definitely a Win-Win for us. Happy indeed!
