Mr. Sutton: We ALL negotiated the best price we could when we bought our RVs. Your best price is the price a given dealer is willing to sell a given unit on a given day. You have shopped around already, and found that some dealers were not willing to negotiate to your liking, and then griped about having to travel elsewhere to get a BETTER price from a dealer who won't worry about your nagging them with after sale problems. I would venture a guess that the last time you bought much of anything you negotiated without knowing what actual dealer cost is, and found that there is NO negotiating on many big ticket items. I have a friend retired from RV sales, and am aware of what dealer cost is generally. but dealers often get special pricing, often do not, so there is no firm rule on dealer cost on a given unit. Go buy yourself a Sprinter cutaway chassis, take it to a coach builder and have it custom built, then take it to a paint shop and have custom graphics applied, and maybe you'll be satisfied with having negotiated the best price!
And this is my LAST post on this thread.
