With the hot market for trailers and other RV's, what kind of discount can be expected now? 35%, 30%. 25%.

Is the dealer’s lot full of TTs? If it is, 35%. If his/her lot only has a couple, very little off. Make an offer. Worse case...”no.”

I got 36% off but mine was a 2019 when the 2021 models were already shipping so a huge YMMV. Others I was looking at were around 20% and dealerships said no way to additional discounts.

It depends on where you are shopping. I lived in Oregon forever and it used to be a great place to buy, but recent events there have caused great demand for anything which can serve as affordable housing and supplies are stressed. People I know are reporting new RVs are going for MSRP or higher.

That said, I recently purchased in Lubbock Texas and demand is a little softer in this area. A month ago I bought a new Heartland Sundance for 30% off MSRP in a cash deal.

We looked all over our state and border states for our the RV we wanted. MSRP was $54*** with an average of $40k for dealer "bottom line". We found a place in the midwest for $34k plus $2k for delivery. should be here Friday.

Whatever you see on the internet regarding discounts are to be taken with a whole lot of grains of salt. I would fully expect if someone posted they negotiated a 90% discount on a new Prevost someone would quickly post that they negotiated to get theirs for free.

Why would this subject be any different than any subject?
Do folks not get 30% + off sticker price? Or did you just get hosed for full price and a little defensive of it?

I've bought many vehicles over the year and have gotten big discounts on some and paid way over sticker for others. I was always more concerned with getting what I wanted than squeezing out the last dime of discount. I sure wouldn't walk away from an RV I wanted because the dealer would only take 20% off their asking price and some random stranger had posted on the internet you should either get a 30% discount or walk.

It can also depend upon the popularity of a particular floor plan. Bunk units are really really hot. The ones that move fast will be marked up over the ones not moving...so to speak. Bear that in mind.

I got mine for like 29% off but what does that mean when there is a $4800.00 "upgrade" package that is on there but then taken off...from the factory? So, how do you calculate from that. IF, you take that off and go with the "factory discounted" price, then I got like 22% off AND that was a very good deal. I have an Aspen Trail 2340. Our unit flies off the lots now days being sold before they even hit the dealer lots in many cases after people peruse one that has come in just before it goes out. I'm noticing the longer rear kitchen units not moving at all... In fact at both lots I'm checking, longer, seemingly what would be more expensive units that are not bunk bed units are as much as a couple of thousand less than mine...

The price on these has jumped dramatically over the last two years from like 21K to as much as 38 to 42K on RVInsider (not discounted pricing). It looks like MSRP has jumped from around 28K to 31 plus K. They have recognized the popularity and so have "improved" them with power jacks, power lift in front, 30 gallon propane tanks and a few interior changes like a 7 ft fridge from a six and stainless sink, fantastic fan etc. It isn't 4K worth of upgrades though. And it has a nice 2K capacity...

We got ours for 23.5K and ALL the others within two hundred miles are going to 26K so I guess I can't complain...unless it has problems...
