Good price on 2019 or 2020 Mini Lite (2509S)?

I've been shopping around for a 2019 or 2020 Mini Lite (2509S) model. I haven't yet spoke to a trailer supplier to talk pricing. But seeing some prices on line, I'm wondering if they will give deals? What would be a good price to pay for this model? If some of you wouldn't mind stating what you paid for your trailers?

Thanks in advance,

RJ

Also get quotes from RVW and RV One, two of the biggest RV online dealers. They both have sticks and bricks locations.
Many get quotes from them, to shop with.

I drove from Denver to Wana (IN) for my 2504S. Easiest transaction of any car, truck, or RV I've ever purchased. Great price. Super easy. All paperwork ready to go. No fees.

So, I just send quote requests to RV One in Albany and Buffalo NY. Here's what I got via email.

Albany NY - 2020 Mini Lite - Sug Retail: $34,784.55 - Quote Price: $26,952.00
https://www.rvdirect.com/stockmodels...ocknum=AT34326

Albany NY - 2020 Mini Lite - Sug Retail: $35,486.05 - Quote Price: $27,518.40
https://www.rvdirect.com/stockmodels...ocknum=AT33167

Still waiting to hear back from the Buffalo location.

Anyone have any idea if this is good pricing?

Here's one I found around Pittsburgh for $22,995.00

Thanks,

RJ

Price quotes sent to me by RVDirect include a factory freight charge to the site where you pick it up. I'm told they don't have a Rockwood site near the factory, so the delivery charge is unavoidable. Including gas, a couple of hotel nights on the way there, and a few campground nights on the way back, it will cost me less than half of their charge to pick it up myself at a site near the factory, e.g., RVW or WANA.

I found the quotes for a custom order picked up from RVW were 1000's cheaper than a similar order picked up from any RVDirect site.

I talked to RVW a couple of weeks ago and I got the quote:

2020 2509s Rockwood with the following options:
- stainless steeel package
- 15k btu AC upgrade
- Extra maxx air fan
- thermopane window
- heated holding tank
- slide topper
- power tongue jack

basically almost every single option i could think of:

Here is what they said to me:
"On Sale for $25,654 - $2,000 Discount for financing with us - $1,250 Manufacture rebate that ends this Wednesday (7/24/19) at 10:00 p.m EST + $295 doc and title fee = $22,799"

By the way I ended up buying from a local shop, which was able to almost match their price + shipping/frieght costs. The local shop told me that Rockwood is planning up increasing the pricing for the 2509s (maybe all minilites) by about 500-600 bucks... the increase is supposed to go into affect next week.

Wow, that looks like a good deal. Where is your local dealer? I checked my local dealers website and they have one in stock, but it's not the color we're looking for. We'd like the white/gray color. Guess we'll keep looking.

My local dealer is in Massachusetts. Yeah I wanted the white exterior, pebble interior myself. I had to have my local dealer special order it.

BostonRV,
I'm in Mass.also. West Bridgewater about 15 miles from you. My local dealer is Rousseau's RV in Lakeville but his price seems a lot higher. 2509S - $ 26,000 - $28000.
Is there another dealer near us who is more willing to lower the price a little bit?

I'm still trying to talk my wife into the trailer idea again after a lot of time away from camping. ha.
Still praying.
Thank's Boston

Rosseau's is the one I got the good price from. I basically paid around mid 25k. I had them try to price match RVW, they came pretty close if you throw in the freight charges I would have incurred.

I will DM you with some additional info in case you decide to go back to them!
