Smile Pricing on Caravel

Should I even consider to deal for a new Caravel?

They said their best offer is a couple of thousand dollars off from MSRP as this model is new and demand is very high. I have not pulled the trigget yet because I read in this forum about 15-20% discount... Thank you.

I looked at a Caravel 20FB in the Seattle area and was told the same thing. Im sure the price will come down in September and into the fall. Id rather get a better deal than jump on the first round of units produced at a higher price.

You'll probably have a hard time getting a great price on a Caravel right now. It's all about supply and demand, and right now the demand is high and supply is low. If you're able to wait you'd almost certainly get a better price this winter.

Welcome to the forum!

As others have said . . . supply and demand . . . better discounts on a new model in a few months . . . also . . . better not to buy a new design/model when it first comes out IMO.

Have you considered a gently used 20' Flying Cloud? Best kitchen in any model until you get to 25' IMO. What length Caravel interests you? They are quite different [16/19/20/22].

Good luck,

Peter

Thanks. We probably went to the same dealership since I am in the region. Yea, I think I will wait until Fall-Winter for better deal.

Thanks! We are looking for 19' FC or Caravel. (this is due to my towing vehicle: Volvo XC90)

I expanded to my search to dealership in Oregon (about 4.5 hrs away) and they gave me a pretty good deal on 2020 Caravel they have in the lot. Thank you.

If the Oregon dealer doesnt work for some reason check with the Spokane dealer. While they are a smaller dealer they are very price competitive. And all around great folks as well.

Are you willing to share how much off MSRP they gave you? Also, congrats!
