From my past experience somewhere around 30% is pretty good. RV's are hard to price due to the lack of invoice data found on the net. Dealers charge as much as a person is willing to pay. The auto industry is much easier to research, you can find invoice prices on them all over the place. We negotiated down to what amounted to about 35 to 36% on our last purchase. Where ever you feel comfortable with the price would be the best deal for you...

Typical answer is 25%-30%, some get even more than that off. It's getting to be the end of the season so maybe dealers are more motivated right now.

Some people also get a hitch thrown into the price or work to get the truck setup.

I would try for at least 30% off MSRP. Maybe more if there are a lot of them available seeing it is late in the season.

I agree......................... but it also depends on how popular the model is and how long it has been on the lot.

Remember that dealers set their own MSRP so the highest percentage off may not be the best price. One dealer may say MSRP is 40K and another may say 35K for the exact same unit.

Mine was roughly 40% off msrp but it was a current model year at the end of the year with a couple weeks of negotiations over the phone almost 300 miles away and I had to get it off the lot before the months end.

Being this close to the end I'd wait if I were you.

Just bought a 2016 Tracer Air270. Dealer seemed pretty motivated to sell (2017's were starting to come in) and I got it for a little more than 35% off their listed MSRP with minimal haggling. (We actually liked another camper better, but the dealer agreed to my price and it was too good to turn down).

I bought a trailer in June that was manufactured in 04/2016 . MSRP was $37,000. Dealer was asking $28,990 without hageling. I got it for $27,990.
