Dealers love it when you do that, but thats how you find out.
I find walking out and saying NO always helps out. May take a few days but it makes em sharpen there pencil.
or in the case of my dealer, he gives you the price he can live with, if you don't like it he will shake your hand and thank you for stopping in. I have tried to trade all 5 of the rv's I had in the past 5 years and nobody, from Lazy Days to camping world, to any of the smaller local dealers varied by nore than a few hundred dollars on values, it was just a waste of effort and days, even if you find a better deal at a wholesaler , good luck with your service as local dealers do not have to service it.
