Remember this is just like buying a new car. Almost no one gets the same deal. The "best deal" or "best price" is ultimately up to the buyer. When you feel you have received a "deal" or when the value of what you are buying exceeds the prices.....that is when one says yes and agrees to buy
Car dealers and RV dealers operate the same way. And they stay in business like this:
They sell a few units at huge profits and take advantage of people
They sell alot of vehicles at fair profits
They sell a few at cost and make no profit
...and occasionally they sell a few units below cost and lose money.
The few they sell hat huge profits usually equals what they sell for cost or a loss. 90% of their income comes from fair deals dealing with fair customers.
I bought at RV Wholesalers just like many other people. Just like everywhere...the best deal is up to you and what you feel is "fair" not based on what someone else paid. I would have paid more if I was face to face with a professional salesperson who treated me politely and valued me as a customer. One who showed me the value of what I was buying. Remember you buy the service, the salesperson and the product.
Buying at a dealer's cost or below cost is not for everyone......It takes time(shopping and researching) and some negotiating skills.......and some hurt feelings at times.
