Last unit I bought listed at $104,900, they started at $87,900 and after a lot of no's by me we ended up settling at 69,900. This is when perseverance with them us on your side..
Like you say it is a good deal in comparison to the MSRP but a lot of people forget or don't realize that they are still making a good profit on these units.

I pushed hard on a 2013 left over and got 42% off. Great deal and received great service ever since.

If you are hard player for your money 35% is minimum, but you have to find out
real MSRP, with all standard equipment, because many dealers "mark up" MSRP with
standard equipment as options.
Before you take delivery, take your time and make a list of warranty issues.
Good luck, happy camper ....

20 percent is normal. As much as 30 percent on closeouts and last year models.

Make your deal what ever it is on tangible equipment ( the unit itself, installed options such as slideout covers etc) do not let the dealer add value to his deal with fluff like magic lifetime warranties, exterior washes or camping packages at somewhere you will never go. Put the money you save in an account earn interest and use it to pay for repairs, you will be ahead of the game ( with exception of FR 2nd yr warranty)

Thanks for the replies. I know around 25% is good in the MH would. Figured trailers would be about the same, 2015/2016 model years.

I found a local dealer in Denver (1 hour away) who offered a no-haggle price ablout $500 more than the lowest Internet price. I took it.

BTW, which LorStas did you serve at? I got to make the rounds of the Alaska units.
