You'll also find "list price" is extremely variable from dealer to dealer. RV's list price doesn't seem to follow the same guidelines as say a new car or truck.

Agree with all the posts. Minimum should be 30% off the MSRP and you start dealing from there. Best to go at the beginning of new year model and deal for last year's model on the lot. It's new and you will probably get even better discount. No dealer will sell at a loss.

Another way to look at what it means to the dealer when you place an order for next years model is that the dealer will be able to book a sale with zero inventory cost. In my case, the factory had advised them of additional incentives for the new year model so they could keep the production crews busy during the winter. I ordered in January, they built it in February and it was ready on a Wednesday, my dealer had his driver pick it up and I got it on Friday.

As far as the electric stabilizer jacks, I have a 2016 21RBS and after taking it out twice, the front electric motor went out. It made noise, but nothing happened. I was actually at the storage place picking it up to take it to the dealer for some other warranty work. I just added that to the list. After 2 weeks, the dealer was still waiting for "Authorization" from Forest River to replace the motor. After 3 weeks, I was able to pick it up. Pretty slow service since the electric jack was the most complex issue and no other parts were required. And as far as cost, list was around $24,000, marked sale price was $18,500 and we got it for $15,700...We just went to the big RV show in Pomona Ca last week and saw our model there. Their list was $24,995 and the big RV show discount price was $19,494.....I guess they list them high because there are those people that will walk in and pay full price.
