Chrysler "affiliates" are either employees of suppliers to Chrysler or members of (usually) outdoor recreation organizations like Tread Lightly (advocates for off road driving) or Access Fund (mountain climbing). You join, they give you a secret number, you give that number to the dealer, he gives you at worst 1% below invoice plus $75. You can often negotiate even better because the secret number gets the dealer a 2% of invoice credit from Chrysler. I just ordered a new Jeep for about 3.5% below invoice with the Access Fund number. If there are consumer or dealer rebates on a specific model you get those too.

Edmunds.com has a wealth of info including invoice prices, rebates, etc.

Check out Truecar.com. It shows you best and average sale price and will put a bid request out to several dealers. I got a price $4000 less than my local dealer for trade in and new Ford purchase with 0% financing.

Mojo, I saw that site when googling something, and it gave me a "truecar estimate"...looked MUCH better than what I had thought before

With all of these tools, I can get some real solid prices in hand, then "wheel and deal" further if I decide.

If I get lazy, Ill try and find a bit higher mileage TV (say 50-75K) on carmax with their excellent warranty...but so far im not impressed with their pricing for these various models - not terribly bad options though for some diesels...

Thanks for all advice so far you all....Im feeling much more prepared...now I need to get the time to go drive a bunch of them and figure out which I want...I am no where near convinced on which TV I want/need....1/2 tone, 3/4 ton, gas, diesel....I just do not know yet....read ALOT on forum about this topic and I am dizzy

A prediction:
PharmGeek will be a rivet master before he gets a trailer and...
PharmGeek not hold out till next year...
In just a few weeks, at least by Labor Day, PharmGeek will have a 2014 Airstream and a 2014 tow vehicle.
I know how it is. I planned to wait a couple of more (or 20) years. I traded after putting new tires on the other trailer and filling up the propane tanks, neither of which probably helped the resale value, but may have helped the trailer sell more quickly.

Once you do all your research and feel comfortable that you have determined the appropriate price of your target trailer, remember the key issue in negotiating:

You are not negotiating unless you are ready to walk away from a higher price than you know it's worth.

Indeed it is - starting to lose sleep with excitement

Between now though and buying a TV and TT....I will obsess this daily until I have answered every question in my head.

I plan on doing alot of TV test driving next week...I will be off on 6/24 and 6/25 and kids in daycare so I am going to furiously test drive every make/model TV and consider all options there.

Than in mid July, I will pin down which AS model/layout we will settle on.

Then by November, will look aggressively for a nice one on a lot and try and get a good deal. If no luck there, special order for spring (although I just read in another thread that they are not doing any mods that are not stock in build due to high volume )

And there you have it..literally the above writing is on the wall

Not to complicate things further, but...
Our local Ford place has several 2013 F150 Supercrew XLTs for $26,333 or so and a couple of 2013 F250 Supercrew XLs for $30,000.

oh wow...dang!! as list sticker?? If this is the case, I would consider buying there perhaps even next week....that is way below the edmonds, truecar and such other estimates...I could bounce offers off local dealers with these numbers too

They are selling these on Carmax used with nearly that price ????

Look on Kirk Brothers Ford Greenwood, MS website. Mthere were 3 F150s and 2 F250s lined up with that price on the windshield in yellow numbers. Maybe they are having a sale or clearing the lot for the 2014s. The F150s were XLTs which are pretty loaded except for leather seats.
