Buying a new Class A diesel pusher
Permalink Closed


In the process of researching a purchase.  What information can you all give on the real skinny of offering a purchase price?  I've got the new car purchase down pat.  Research dealer invoice on specific model and options (it's out there), and then offer $200 over invoice.  It's worked perfectly for the last 3 car purchases.  Is there such information available on motor homes?  I would tend to doubt it since there's so many manufacturers out there.  Am I going into the sales office unarmed and merely having to stab at a price hoping that I got the best deal I could?  Interested in your experiences and insights.

Thanks,
Kirk

Welcome, Kirk. I've not seen anything like what you describe for a car for an RV, but I've seen several places that the final selling price will be somewhere in the 70-80% of MSRP. If you have a trade-in you know that the dealers can play some real games with the numbers. Remember, too, that some dealers may need to more inventory much more quickly than others, and therefore are willing to make a bit less. Brands that are only sold from the factory may not offer as much off MSRP, but then make up for it by offering more for your trade. I don't know that for a fact, since I've never purchased a new MH.

Enjoy the hunt, and be sure to post some pictures when you get your new coach.

What you should know before you buy a Big Rig Motorhome!
We want to Share what we have learned the hard way:
The two manufactures that combine to make your coach take virtually NO responsibility for each other product!!!
Most importantly “Almost No One in this country is qualified to work on you coach or Chassis”!
Our experience talking to and working with Newmar Service and FCCC that there are very few places with competent service people.
Getting Coach Service: Newmar factory Service is excellent but it takes 5 to 6 to get an appointment The only other choice for quality service per the Newmar Service Line is the Dealer in Ft Myer, FL or the one in Tucson AZ.
Freightliner Service for your custom Chassis: Only Freightliner “Oasis Service Centers” “450 Freightliner-branded service locations throughout North America, including more than 90 Oasis Network dealerships” see www.fcccrv.com/parts-and-service/

Just a thought. RV's depreciate with enthusiasm. You might consider one that is a couple of years old but is in "like new" condition (it can save you A LOT). Don't fret over miles on a diesel pusher ... they'll go for hundreds of thousands of miles. Do pay attention to the tires, they usually "age out" before they wear out. Good hunting.

This thread is 5 years old.  Since it has been "revived," keep that in mind with any comment that one may wish to make, especially to the original poster.

It may be that the original poster has already made their purchase or has decided to not purchase at all.  I say that because the original poster has only made this one posting to the forums and hasn't logged back into the forums since November of 2013.  Thus, with such inactivity to the original poster's thoughts, this thread will now be closed.
