MSRP Mini-Lite options

Does anyone have a price list for the options on the Mini-Lite trailers, or know where I might find them online? Thanks!

RV MSRP doesn't work like the Auto Industry. dealers can make up their own MSRP to fit their pricing structure.

so, don't know unless you get an invoice from a dealer. FR doesn't price options, the dealer does.

After determining which model you are interested in, suggest call the dealer closest to you and RVW... Then compare prices.

Well, that makes it challenging! So, the options one might order are lumped in with the total price the dealer pays to the factory for the unit, and then the dealer sets his own price for the unit.

First time through I used a NADA guide and priced each option we were interested in that way. Second time through DH called the local-ish dealer and asked for a copy of the invoice, which had options priced out. Third time through we talked to RVW and he priced them each out for us for our credit union. Gave us 3 price references for each option we were interested in...and I found they're actually directionally correct.

Each option DOES have a price, but the price is fairly meaningless. It just raises invoice price to the dealer. They then use their own markup strategy to actually price the camper on the lot. Not much different from car dealers, but it seems that RV's come to the lot a good bit cheaper than the MSRP so they can fudge a lot more. Kinda like going to a jeweler to get "70% OFF" when they overinflated the value from the start. They are probably still making a good profit at the reduced price, or else they wouldn't be in business long. They just make a lot more money of those who buy early, don't shop around, or can afford not to care what they paid.
