We just signed for a 2012 Sabre 5th wheel today, factory build because we wanted the thermopane window option. I brought along a quote from RVW with all the options we wanted and was pleasently surprized on how close the dealer came to meeting their price, within a couple hundred bucks. And I have a local dealer to do any warranty work if needed.

Should we pay their sticker? (17,600)
Do we haggle?
Can we get extras free before signing?
What are some other $$ saving tips before signing?
Thanks!!
Their sticker price tag is their starting point. If you are willing to pay full asking price they are willing to accept it. This is just like buying a car.

We decided to hold off and make the repairs to our flagstaff 829bhs we own.

Just need to replace the 2 axles... (both bent..one worse than the other)

And only one of the 4 wheels seems to be braking when I apply the brakes.

It happened with previous owner. They had a blowout and traveled on 3 wheels for abit. I can visually see that the one axle is bent. Took it to camping world and they said both needed replacing... ill replace both while under there.....might as well.

There is totaly room to haggle. I recently made a post asking if others thought our dealer was screwing with us. It has tons of great info and recs from other members for someone looking to buy an RV. You can read it here Is my dealer screwing with me?
And FWIW, RV Wholesalers quoted us a lot more then what we paid from our dealer so they aren't always the cheapest.
