All depends on the make/model and what type of RV you are looking at but that seems about right.. My Coachmen that I ordered built the way I wanted it is as follows:
MSRP $57,587.00 Invoice $39,715.00 which is 31% discount to get it to cost and a 45% markup (exactly what you said).
When I did it stripped down, Base MSRP and base Invoice, it was still at 31% so this particular model has 31% across all options.
Not only that but I'm paying $39,200 for it Out the Door (no sales tax in my state) with all the extras thrown in (starter kit, TP, all water/sewer hoses, water pressure regulator and voltage regulator).
So clearly even at below invoice, they are still making money otherwise they wouldn't sell a unit below cost that is brand new straight from the factory. I'm sure they are getting rebates and kick backs that are not advertised like the auto industry.
