We just bought out TT towards the end of August its a 2012 Shasta 21' bunk house. After owning it for a week we had to take it in to get a few things fixed under warranty and when went to pick it up we saw a 2012 Shasta 27' bunk house for $3000 less than we paid for ours. It was originally $7000 more. We kicked ourselves in the butt for that one. This is our first TT so live and learn I guess. When we decide to replace this one down the road we will be shopping in early September that's for sure.

We bought ours last November. Prime Time had a promotion of $3,800 of free upgrades at the time. I believe they have another promotion going on now, but I'm not exactly sure what it is.

We camped once after purchasing the tt just to check it out. I spent last winter learning the tt. I went over everything and also added a few mods here and there. I now have most of one season of camping in the tt and I believe all the "new camper bugs" are worked out. I will go over the tt next month and then take it to my dealer before the warranty runs out if I find anything wrong.

So buying last November has worked out well for us.

I bought end of Sept and I believe I saved a lot at season end. However, I also sold for less, so it balanced out. Storage not an issue for me as we are on seasonal lot and get to store it there year round. In the long run, I saved more than I had to discount though. I'd do it again. No way I would buy spring or early summer.....premium demand.

==========================================
That is exactly when we bought ours, and I haven't seen anyone get a better deal.

Big mistake to go back and check prices, lol. After you buy an item never go back and check the price weeks later because it will most likey be cheaper. Happens with RV's, computers, cars, etc.

I think your right end of Sept. early Oct. I had a great deal on the exact one I wanted but unfortunately my life situation has changed a bit so I will have to wait until next Sept/Oct....

Keep shopping. You never know when a deal you can't refuse will present itself.

If you plan to buy from a dealers existing inventory, buy it when you find the one you want. Most dealers will agree to leave it on the lot until spring if it is during the winter months.

If you plan to buy using a factory order, delivery time will likely be 8 to 12 weeks, so waiting until spring is not a good idea. Additionally, good deals can often be negotiated on "factory orders" as it is a "flow-thru" for the dealer with the sale compete on delivery of the RV - i.e. on the dealers lot from the factory, PDI and prep, and then immediately off the lot to the buyer. Saves the dealer money.

Don't forget that if you order a camper now, it will likely be delivered on roads covered in salt, and your frame and undercarriage will be rusty from day one.

I bought our unit at the beginning of Sept. The dealership agreed to store it for free all winter and our warrenty doesn't start until we take possession likely the beginning of May. It will also be insured while on their lot by them. All of this and I also got them to come down to my price.
