Did I Pay Too Much?

Hello all, been lurking this forum for a while now and would appreciate some good advice. Just put down a fully refundable deposit on a 2019 Viking TT 16FB. I paid $12928.51 + taxes title and reg = $14300 out the door. Dealer sheet says MSRP is $15887+$1926 Freight = $17,813.
Now I have a case of buyer's remorse. Did I pay too much?

You will get many post on this subject. I have found that someone will always say they can get a better deal. What really matters is do you like what you got at a price you are happy with. That's all that really matters, enjoy your camper and don't sweat the small stuff. Happy camping.

Seems like a decent deal given the MSRP vs. actual sales price. I suspect you are just worried about the investment, it is a big first jump/obligation for just for a leisure activity, to start with. I felt the same way, but now I'm more concerned about the tow vehicle

Indymule is right on. If you're happy, it's a good deal.

MSRP is a fantasy number and totally useless to base anything on. Personally, when a dealer starts talking delivery and dealer prep I walk out the door. Check out the prices on rv trader and remember there is always room to negotiate. Do your homework.

The thing that matters is that itís what you want. A few dollar here and there donít matter too much when you setting by a campfire enjoying the evening.

Spot on advice. I also agree with the post that once the purchase is complete it's time to stop shopping.

I have to agree. Check out online and see what's out there. I didn't do all of my homework on ours but we did get a good deal.

Here's more info that can help in your decision making process. It helped me decide if I got a reasonable deal. MSRP is a fantasy number.

Below is the NADA value of the 2018 TT you're looking at, base with no options. Gives you an idea of what the TT will be worth in a year - just another bit of info to consider with any purchase.

I agree with everyone who told you to stop shopping. If you're happy with your purchase, stop stressing over the price, and just go camping!

If that price is OK with your budget, Buy it and go camping. Rather than spending time wondering if you paid too much, spend your time deciding where to camp next.

I think the bottom line is you didn't get ripped off.
Anything I could find online from disgruntled employees suggests that the dealers pay anywhere from 40% to 50% less than the MSRP. We will never know what they actually pay, it's a well guarded trade secret.
With some very rough rounding the dealer paid $10k or so, all in. He made a decent profit.
Price vary widely depending on the time of the year, how much competition the dealer has locally, proximity to where the trailer was built(shipping charges) and how long the trailer has been on the lot.

I shoot for 30% off of MSRP on every RV I purchase. You didn't do too bad. Hit the road and enjoy your RV.
