Tampa RV is my closest dealer. Unfortunately, I disliked the high pressure sales pitch, the salesman called me three times at home in one day!
So I visited the Ft. Meyers dealer, liked their low pressure sales, and was ready to buy from them. My downfall is my trade in, which is low miles very nice MH. They offered me below NADA "Low retail" against full retail on their Airstream.
However, when I went to their web site, the unit I was looking at had the price crossed out, meaning it would sell for lower.
For me, they wouldn't budge a penny, and only wanted to tell me how I was wrong about everything.

"You'll save $3000" really meant, "We'll sell you this 2017 for list price which is $3000 below a NEW 2018."

Case in point. I was hoping to bring up the Good Year Marathons as a possible negotiating point. Would they swap to Endurance? Or give me a better deal on Endurance? Their answer was "There's nothing wrong with the Marathons, people who have blowouts don't inflate their tires properly. Don't believe what your read on the internet."
If I was the salesman, I'd say, "Maybe we can work something out, let me see what it would cost."

So far they won't budge a penny, even on the $8 tire disposal fee.
But if I walked in with no trade, they'd discount the new AS by about 20%.
So I walked away disappointed.

I'm going to visit Tampa RV again today. It should be easy. I know exactly what I want, and I only want to hear the "out the door" price. Otherwise, they can play all the slight of hand tricks they want.

Wrapping this up by connecting this thread with the one where the OP tells us how it all worked out in the end to his satisfaction.

Today I listed my "Trade in" on RV Trader.com.
I should have done that a year ago. Then if it sells, I can walk into a dealer with no trade, and get the "real" price.
