Sometimes they do that to get traffic in and then tell them its "sale pending" and try to sell them something else !

Thanks for the reassurance...I thought so, as I've seen some on the lot like that, but it still makes me a bit nervous.

My DW and I are looking to get a new 5er for us and the family. We really like the 36qbok by sabre. The dealer is asking 49900 for it. Looking for some tactical advice on how much I should offer and pay and what other have gotten theirs for?

Thanks

Fully warranted !
ITS a sales tactic used by a lot of stealerships !

When we were looking for our latest 5th wheel I at a dealer that had 4 units we would have considered buying .........
They were listed online as NEW arrivals come in and buy today with low apr.
As I just work Down the street I checked in on it the day after the Internet sale went up ....
4 were customer ordered and 1 was sale pending .

It depends on options etc...what is the "listed" retail price? I have found you can typically take 25-30% off of the retail price. It can also get a little confusing when you have a trade, is this the case? However, that price does sound high...I think the range for a base model should be between $37K-$42K. I reccomend getting quotes on line from RV Wholesaler, Tom Raper etc..and asking the dealer to match or get close..

My camper is still on the dealership's website (with incorrect specs at that) as "for sale". I've owned it for almost 7 months now.

Even better- I called them cold and custom ordered the rig. They didn't list it on the site until they got it there and took pictures of it. (Shrugs.)

There weren't any signs that they walked people thru it. I don't care after that... :-)
