What did you pay for your Wolf Pup?

I paid $10,500 for my 2017 Wolf Pup.

I bought it in April 2016, but it came titled as a 2017 (don't know why).

I'm just curious what others have paid. I haven't met anyone who's paid less than $15k. And that has me pondering how the dealership I purchased it from sells them so low....

We bought our 2017 Wolf Pup in June and paid 10, 500. So the same as you.

Just finalized on a '17 16bhs for $10,900 out the door. Last one out of 6 that I watched sell over the last 10 days so I wanted to grab it instead of waiting for restocking.

We paid $11.9k for our 16BHS, which was reasonably competitive with the few other Wolf Pups in the area. We're headed out for for third trip this weekend and really looking forward to it. So far I don't really have much in the way of complaints. Do any of you have any likes or dislikes worth mentioning?

Edit: Side question, what tow vehicles are you guys using? We have a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder, with the 4L V6. It's rated for 6000lb tow capacity and 600 tongue weight. It tows it decently on flat roads, but I don't know that I'd feel comfortable heading up a mountain with it. I think we're probably gonna start looking for something bigger once we start branching out more.

We pull with a 2013 honda pilot. Tow capacity 4500. We went over some steep and gnarly hills recently and traveling slow and steady did very well. As for complaints, none. Added hooks near entry, and dorm room cubby next to bed so had a place for books, etc.. Other than that, we are completely happy.

By the way, we did add lips on the dinette seats because we wanted another bed. I'm not sure why they weren't there to begin with. Everyone assumes you can turn the dinette into a bed but without lips for making the surface flat... anyway, that's the only strange thing we found.

Our price on a 2016 FQ16 was in the same range. We've been on four trips so far and are reasonably happy. This camper has much less storage than our old 25 footer. I added drawers to the foot end of the queen bed support which makes a big difference. (photos coming soon) It also did not come with a medicine cabinet or mirror over the sink so I installed that as well.

We are pulling it with a 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada. It does fine though you can tell it is working a bit harder when you have a head wind. I'd not like to try it in the mountains.

Hmmm, I feel pretty lucky right now. My wife and I bought our 2015 Pup Labor Day weekend of 2015. We paid $8,500. Towed it off the showroom floor. We had a Trailblazer Ext 4.2 liter V6 at that time. Rated at I think 5,000 lbs towing. It towed it around Ohio just fine. We towed the Pup to South Carolina and I was worried we wouldn't make the trip after going up and down some of the mountains in West Virginia and Carolina's. Trans was running hot and we had Semi's passing us on the up hills. So I bought a really nice shape low miles Silverado 2500HD. Now I barely notice the camper weight. Just out of curiosity, would anyone be interested in a Wolf Pup group? Then we could compare mods and stuff?

A Wolf Pup group might be fun.

Just finished our first Camping trip with the new Wolf Pup bunkhouse and we love it. I'm already made a half dozen mods and I will post a thread with the best. We tow it with a 2016 Canyon midsize truck. It tows great but you do need mirror extenders as the truck is much narrower then a full size. I don't think a weight distribution hitch is needed as the trailer only drops the truck about an inch and a half.

A canyon is a nice size truck. Looked at those for my wife. They are bigger than mid size used to be. I bought the weight distribution when I had the trailblazer. On short trips i sometimes don't use it with the Silverado. On long hauls I do for the safety factor and the sway bar. For mirrors I had extenders. They vibrated a lot. So for $100 on eBay I bought full size truck mirrors that extend out when I tow.

I purchased a 2017 Wolf Pup 16BHS about 4 weeks ago for an amazing price only one problem, I'm still waiting for it. I'll post my price once I receive it, but it's lower then anything I've seen here.

Picked up 2017 Wolf Pup over the weekend and its got a lot of changes compared to the 2017 on the lot. Might be considered a 2017.5

Exterior: Color (Two tone), Blue lighted speakers, power awning.

Interior: USB Ports for charging (both top/bottom bunks, and Queen Bed). Stainless steal Appliances, New Fabric pattern and solid color valance above windows.

It might not be an amazing price, but the dealer certainly can make you feel like your stealing it...

$9,300.00 on just the right day at my local dealer.

I must say, I love the color scheme and changes, but what if I didn't? I ordered a 2017 based on the one on the lot, and this one is very different. The 6 USB charging ports scattered around is an update Me and my son love! Leaving for first trip this weekend.

Wolf pup cost

I paid 10,500 in March 2012 - wolf pup 17rr. Came w/TV - place in Indiana. I installed solar panels, inverter, battery bank, 30lb propane tank & 12" memory foam mattress. The mattress was so heavy I added gas shocks to the bed.

The pup looks sweet I find it interesting that different regions have different set ups and availability. Our pup has a full bunk wall and two usb ports. They are awesome because the work even if dry camping. As for the 17rr, I've never seen it heard of it. It wasn't a choice unless it's a toy hauler and then I'm not sure it was called that. Anyway, the upgrade sounds nice but really what if you wanted the one you had seen. Anyway, still love ours and we can't stop taking it out. Still have one more trip to do before putting it away for the winter. We're in Oregon and the rains will come soon.

Thanks, we really love it. When it arrived, sales called me to let me know, and I heard the hesitation in his voice... "It's really nice, looks very cool, has a bunch of upgrades", as if he thought I wouldn't be happy with the change in appearance and different fabrics etc. sounded like he was selling me the unit all over again.

I was a bit worried what I was going to see when I arrived, but was pleasantly surprised. It's a bit more contemporary, more modern styling and less patterns.

That's a nice looking Pup. I find interesting as well how they all seem different. I did start a group for Wolf Pups if anyone is interested
