Well if its the RV the your really want I would not pay more than 40% off of sticker (list) price.

But offer them like 45% less than sticker and see what you can get.

Dont bother with the extendend warrentee (esp. if your handy). But if you do get Ext. Warr. dont pay more than like $1000 or $1500 for 4 or 5 years. They will start out around $6000 but quicky drop the price. And many of them are not worth much since they will find a why to weasel out of repairing it under warrantee.

This price saving you get up front will justify the poor quality .... alowing you more money for repairs etc, and making you feel better about paying a few hundred (or more) for repairs in the first year(S)of owner ship.

If at anytime you getting nowwhere with your price negotiations... stand up and tell them you will think about it. You will see how quickly they WONT let you leave the building. I did that twice until I got the price I wanted for my Axis at CW. Plus I had them thow in $100 CW gift card since the Fuel tank was on empty and a 39 inch smart TV!

Also DO NOT PAY THEM one Penney until AFTER you do your walk though. Spend at least TWO hours doing doing it. Check the operations of EVERYTHING and ask them lots of question. Then expect to LEAVE the RV for a few days or WEEK until they compete the repairs (expect to find repairs).

You might have to leave a deposit but DONT pay a penny until everything that you can find is as good as it can get. They will fix things quickly before you pay them. But once you pay them and drive off the lot you will wait WEEKS on getting stuff fixed/

And always expect a few things more to be repaired a few weeks later. That way your not upset or disappointed.

Overall quality is about the same with ALL RV's IMO. But you need to catch the major stuff in the first year.
