Not sure if you're talking about MSRP or listed sale price.

Different regions have different pricing structures. Generally, as you stay near the factory, the prices will go down. At least part of this is due to freight. For passenger vehicles, the freight is uniform. CA, CO, and CT will all pay the same freight on a new Honda Accord. This isn't true for RVs. The farther the dealership is from the factory, the more it will pay in freight. This, along with options, will affect MSRP. Identically optioned trailers in OH and WA will have different MSRPs due to freight.

There are also market-specific price drivers. For example, in CO, the prices are much higher than in, say, MO. As a general rule (general, not 100%), as you move west past the MS River, prices will go up (for both new and used).

When I bought a used PUP, I drove to eastern KS to purchase. Six years later, I sold it in CO for exactly (to the penny) the same as what I had paid. This year, I drove to IN to buy a trailer.

Good luck.

The closer the dealer is to Indiana, the cheaper they can sell it.
Out West, that trailer would be higher than your Texas price.

That's why drove from California to Chicago and back to pick up our new HTT.
Saved $4k even after trip costs.
