RW 2306 - Ordered!!!

On Saturday, 1/17, I placed my order for a 2015 RW 2306. Got pretty much all the options (Murphy bed, cherry wood, raised panel refrigerator, oven, electric tongue jack, electric awning, rear ladder, oyster exterior). The only option we didn't chose was the stainless steel appliances, which the salesman told us really only amounted to a stainless front on the microwave (stove remains black). I'm really excited, but I'm dreading the 7-8 week wait...

My question to other 2306 owners - did I get a decent price? I know it's all relative to how comfortable I am with what I paid, and I'm comfortable. Just curious if I left money on the table. I ended up at $19,500 - which includes the $1155 freight charge. This dealer doesn't charge a "prep" fee, although I know most dealers do - and I'm sure there's an allowance in there somewhere for it. Price also includes a "starter kit" of hoses and such.

Congrats on the new camper. We have the sister camper, Flagstaff 23lb. Didn't realize these models now have a ladder. Enjoy!!

Can't help you with the price we bought our 2012 used in 2013.

Not a 2306 owner but you could always cross check prices with rvwholesalers.com or rvdirect.com option it similarly and they will email the price, it is an easy way to check as they will generally have one of the better prices going.

Just sent in our deposite today. We also got everything except the stainless and we were out the door tax title freight and everything at $14,530. We ordered from a small dealer in central Michigan. He has been the best to deal with. RVW were terrible to deal with. The price was $2000 more and the best interest rate they could get me was 5% higher than other places! The best they could get me was 8.9 if I bought the extended warranty. Now they just keep calling with a better "offer" everyday. But I think we did good on our final decision.

53flattie, you're good. I paid more than that for my 25KS. Similar unit, slightly larger. There's always someone who paid less, and plenty of folks who paid more that you'll never hear from!


Hope the time flies for ya, and enjoy it!

Congratulations! Ours does not have a ladder, either. But we love it!

Best thing to do AFTER you make your purchase is don't compare prices; you'll only get your feelings hurt. (been there & done that)

That's odd.... Your account of RVW is pretty much exactly the opposite of my experience. Beat my local dealers by several thousand and got me a competitive rate. I could typically save .25-.5%, but usually had to go shorter term to get it. Of the 10 or so local dealers (within 100 miles or so) I've been to, only 3 or so acted like they gave a rip if they even sold you a camper. The rest acted like they were doing you a favor by being there and letting you on the lot.

Good points here about not comparing prices after the fact! That price Todd got is pretty amazing...

At the end of the day, I felt like (based on the wisdom here) going with a good local dealer would pay off in the long run. I might have been able to beat them down by a few more dollars, but I was afraid it would 'cost' our relationship later. Hopefully I won't have any issues with the unit, but if I do, I like knowing that the dealer is not going to look negatively at me.

Having a good dealer that you feel comfortable with is important. A lot of the post here complaining about warranty issues are because of the dealer and how they respond.
I have purchased 2 travel trailers from local dealers and both time could have saved a few bucks by going with a out of state wholesaler. Twice I needed some minor items repaired on our first trailer and the dealer took care of it quickly and with no hassle. That was worth it to me.

Enjoy the new trailer!
