So what have people paid for Roo's

I know it varies wildly but I want to know if there is a recurring price in the market that they settle at.

I have been quoted these prices by my local dealer and I want an idea where I can go with them, I have prices from the wholesale type place already. The prices look a bit high but in Canada they are higher but not that much more, I have no issue buying local and with exchange it will be higher but...

19 $21k
23SS $23k
23RS $24k (show special)

Back when the Canadian dollar was at par or even worth US$1.02, you could easily save $5,000 or more by buying in the U.S. Now that the Canadian dollar is south of US$0.90 it's less attractive but still worth getting a quote from a reputable U.S. wholesaler to use as a negotiating tool with your local dealer.

IMO, paying extra to a local dealer should only be considered if they have a good reputation for after sales service since the trailer purchase may get you in the shop faster when you need it. Otherwise, weigh the cost of travelling to a reputable U.S. wholesaler vs. the savings.

If you purchase in the U.S., try to make it a holiday and camp not far from the dealer for a few nights after picking it up so you're comfortable there isn't anything big to be fixed before heading home.

Good luck with your decision.

I'm in Canada. The prices are $8 K to $15k higher than if you bought in the US. I bought last year at this time and saved $12k buying in the US. I gave Canadian dealers a chance to compete but they couldn't even get within $5000 of what I paid in the US. A Canadian dealer told me my US price was cheaper than his cost - he actually offered to buy it from me !!! Lol. I work too hard for my money so I had to buy in the US. The difference is crazy.

Ya I hear on paying too much.

Well looks like I need to work the dealer over then, I don't want to be rude and stuff but so I will be very straight with him and just say look here is what I can buy it for can you get close.

For us the difference in price is doing it or not doing it, if we cant get the trailer we are happy with then no point doing it right now and we will just wait.

The dollar is still at .90 so the trailer will be more but we are about 7-8k apart, I can also work my trade in as well, tell him the cash I have to spend and my trade, put any number down you want for values this what I have to work with can you do it.

Prices back east are better too so I may explore Ontario for a dealer to work with.

Last January we bought our 233s for around 18.6 from All Seasons in Muskegon before prices went up. We added the oven, extra vent fan, electric jack, and convenience package c. It gets hit and dry in Washington and the 13.5 keeps everything fairly cool if we are in the camper in the hottest time (can still feel heat come in from bunk ends) of the day but is perfect at night.
