This question comes up fairly regularly in various forms.
Shop around and as others have said, consider out of state dealers. Consider factory orders as well as dealer inventory.
Then the question you should be asking yourself is, "How much money do I have to save to make it with the extra wear, extra weathering, and extra hassle?"
A trailer out on a lot, exposed to sun, heat, and rain for a year or two will have some deterioration of the clearcoat, caulk, A/C shrouds, window gaskets, painted areas, electronics, and upholstery. Nothing serious necessarily but it does affect the ultimate life of the trailer.
I ultimately passed on a "lightly used" trailer that was two years old once I figured out I could get a new one for only a little more money (5% or something).
