What did your 8528ikws cost?

Sorry if that is a rude question. Just trying to get an idea of what I can expect to pay. Our local dealer (Calif) has a "sale" price of $37,000 on a Flagstaff 8528IKWS Diamond. I don't have a clue as to what a starting offer might be, nor what a average or reasonable price would be? Curious as to what folks have paid. Thanks for your help.

I used a couple of the online Wholesalers as my pricing point to figure out how much the local guys should approximately be paying/making and picked a fair price just above that for local negotiations.

Thanks. I have been checking online asking prices. However MSRP seems to be a way high artificial price. Dealers seem to quickly lower this substantially making me believe they can go much lower. Just want to feel comfortable that I got a fair deal and they made a fair profit.

I do have a trailer but am selling it myself.

I have a 8289ws rockwood, looked at the add for big daddy, looks just like my unit, without the Diamond package I paid 32,000 out the door. even the same floor plan. I would see if they are willing to put some Marathon tires on D rated. It will come with trail express I bet. Pure garbage tires, also get the $150.00 2 nd year warranty from the factory, they will probably forget to offer that. My suggested retail price was 43,000 dollars. You will pay more just because it is California, I live in Virginia.

You can typically get 30% off MSRP (including options) if you fight dirty (Use the internet - RV Wholesalers and RV Direct quotes FIRST).

I appreciate all of the input. We have decided to go for the Rockwood 8289WS or the Flagstaff equivalent and have begun shopping price with the three dealers with whom we have made prior contact. So far we have two initial base price quotes from dealers (waiting for the third), $35,500 and $37,695. This is for the Diamond package with a 15,000 BTU A/C. I'm hoping to get a lot closer to $30,000. I'll post the final result. Of course I'm open to suggestions! One other thing, included in the above prices are about $3800 in transportation fees to get the rig to Calif. what will be added to the above will be about $3000 in sales taxes and about $400 Calif license fee. If only the grandkids didn't live here! :-)

Sales Tax and lic. fees will kill you in Calif. I lived in the Bay Area for 25 years, when I retired I had to move to Virginia because of that reason. If you get to walk out the door at $35,000 with tax and lic. YOU WILL BE GETTING A GOOD DEAL. The Rockwood would be a little cheaper then the Flagstaff but they are the same units, just different names........Good Luck we love our 8289WS Rockwood..
