What is a good price for a 2013 Wildcat 312BHX?

What is a good price for a New 2013 Wildcat 312BHX.
It has the outside kitchen with it too?
Trying to find a good price point for negotiating with the dealer.
Thanks in advance!!

I went to a couple of whholesalers and found the "best price". I didn't expect my local dealer to meet or beat it, but I did want them fairly close.

And, to preempt the posts... A "good price" is one that you're willing to pay and are happy with. :-)

To be completely serious- I want to get the best price, but I don't worry myself with what my neighbor pays.

Ependydad,
I understand what you are saying, but I'm trying to ensure that I am not getting ripped off.

Contact the wholesalers, as they usually give you their best price. Then phone around the country to some of the bigger dealers, some advertise on ebay. That should give you a good idea.
Prices change, so asking people on this forum what they paid may not provide an accurate picture.

yes, just get a price from someone like RVW. their prices are always the lowest and are used for shoppers to compare with.
RVDirect is also used but not sure if they sell Wildcats.

it would also help if you posted your locations, so that members can refer you to certain dealers.

If you are anywhere near Minneapolis, check out Coates RV.
That is where we bought ours, and they matched the wholesaler's prices.
Plus, nice to deal with a family-owned dealer.
And they have one in stock!

Check out www.couchsrvnation.com . They sell Wildcat and they were way lower than our local dealer on Silverback. Sometimes local dealers will get close to the wholesalers prices.
Remember that the local dealers are not required to do warranty work for units that they did not sell.....like car dealers. Most will do the work but after all of their own customers are taken care of.

Didn't end up with a wildcat, but was quoted right at 30k for a 312BHX last winter. I'd think somewhere around 32k would be pretty good.
Good luck

Thanks for all of the help gentlemen. I had been able to negotiate a new 2013 (early build) 312BHX with the outside kitchen to $31,800.
I just needed a sanity check.
Thanks again!
