Everyone's advise above are good. Normally, a dealer will match or better the price at the shows. Don't get sucked in with all of the hipe. Markup on RVs range from 43% down to list price. So there is a lot of wigle room. If your not trading anything in, you can make a better deal. Go talk to your bank or Credit union. They make a better deal than the dealer. If your going to pay on time. We used this formula on our motorhome and negociated a price off the sticker price (38%) and then worked a deal to trade in our 5th wheel at high whosale price. Then we ordered one the way we wanted with the interiors and options that we wanted. If they bulk, just tell them that you will see what the other dealers will do. I had figures from dealers in Ohio and Florida that would match that discount so our dealer knew we were serious.
