We bought a 2015 8286WS from RvWholesalers in Ohio this year. Had it built for us with everything we wanted. The MSRP was $49,400 and we got it for $29,600. With tax, license and delivery the out the door price was $35,500, the delivery being almost $4000 of the price.
I would recommend at least looking at a wholesale dealer like that so you can at a minimum use their pricing against your local dealer.
I wouldn't recommend a dealer like RVW to deliver a rig to a first timer because you will not get a walk through upon delivery. But as we have been camping for ever it was a good deal for us.
