Just me, do the math. Check out the link below.

You might want to look into ordering your unit now Primetime has a $4500 tourning package for free on the tracer models . Check out their website.

Ok so here’s my dilemma, the Tracer 3150BHD is our dream trailer. I found a good deal on it with a military discount and such. The dealer is less than 2 hours from home. They have a less than spotless sales reputation but I can hold my own on that end, but they have a VERY BAD reputation for service work and especially warranty work.
The next closest dealer is 6 hours away and $6000+ more expensive which would put it out of our price range. Does warranty work HAVE to be done at a Forest River dealer or can any RV service center do it?

I hope you aren't basing the price on the dealers listed price. I went back and forth with my dealer 3 or 4 times before I ended up with a final price of $14k less than MSRP and $10k less than their original posted "sale" price.

I had the choice of 2 dealers, 1 that was 30 mins away and another that was 2 hours. I went with the dealer that was 2 hours away because of their stellar customer service record where as the closer dealer didn't have a good record.
