I remember you at the FB group. You were crying and complaining about the RT lithium and voltstart. LOL How quickly you changed the tune and pretends that nobody would know.

FWIW, the wife and I appreciate all the comments here.

Anybody want to play Price is Right? What do folks think is a reasonable price for:

A brand new RT CS Adventurous XL ordered from the factory today with Warp Core (1600 & 600), underhood generator, undermounted A/C, induction stove, Alde, drop down cabinet in the back and headboard? If MSRP is listed at 162K, what kind of price is "fair" from a dealer on such a Class B?

Traditionally, 18% off sticker has been considered a max discount from Roadtrek, but I am not sure if that still applies after the Hymer takeover.

If you could get to $135K you would probably be doing pretty well.

Sample here,

Current Inventory/Pre-Owned Inventory from Lake Region RVs Inc.

When a dealer says a RoadTrek has a September build date from a slot they've already ordered, is that firm or no? From what I understand it takes a week to make a CS from start to finish. Just wondering if a "build date" is firm or if that will be one of those delivery stories I've read about where it comes in late.

From what i have read on various forums,
you need to add 6 to 8 weeks to whatever date they promised you.

Unless they have a built one on the lot or in the pipeline, which I doubt you will find one with your spec. Not an XL. Not with 1600AH. Nobody likes to hold expensive inventory.

Good to know. It's a fluid business I'm sure. By in the pipeline, do you mean the dealer has already ordered the unit and it just hasn't been built yet?

I'm guessing you meant an already built one that is in the delivery pipeline. It must be the build dates that move around rather than the delivery process. That makes sense.

Yes, dealers are committed to sell a certain number of RV every year. Otherwise, they would lose their franchise.

They would order the most popular models with the most popular options, for their lot.
If the inventory do not sell, they have to give a discount to move them, and no wise businessman would like to do that.

between 15-20 is reasonable. i got 15 percent off list in 2015. could i have gotten more-possibly-but unlike this dealer who was 30 minutes away.-who had a good rep in service-the next dealer was 2.5 hours away.

I can't believe the number of posts i see that say-i need service and my dealer is 5 hours away-when they have one close but didn't have as good a price. although there are no service guarantees my dealer has never kept me waiting more than a week-and within a couple days if they think it's something they can handle quick.

build date means 'nothing' with Roadtrek. Jim Hammill told me a date-i got it a month later-lol

I think you're confusing me with someone else. I'm not a facebook subscriber.
