Are you assuming that the price shown on a website is the price you pay? That isn't the way the RV world works. Make an offer for any rig you are interested in and see what happens. If you are going to finance make sure you have your financing lined up. Most of the dealer loans interest rate can be easily beaten.

Thats actually our plan. We had figured on checking with our bank this week anyway.  We were talking on the way up about what we might get in lieu of a drop in price such as a weight distributing hitch, backup camera etc...  IF we go back to them next weekend, I also be playing the angry and about to walk away role.  The only other rig they have that we might be interested is outside our dealing range.  Asking is 23k and I see NO way to get them down where we might be comfortable with the length of the loan.  16k is about our highest price right now.

Welcome aboard! Dealing for an RV  is pretty much the same as dealing for a car on a dealer's lot. The salespeople work on commission and so they make more if you pay more and as such, they never come out with their best price at first. The entire purpose of a commission program is to reward those who make more money for the business. In nearly all instances, a new RV will start with a price that is at least 10% above what they really can sell for and most are closer to 20% or greater. That means that for $16k you should be able to buy something that is initially priced at $20k and for sure one that was listed as $18k. Some dealers will discount as much as 30% but by no means all. There are a few dealerships that price at the amount that you will be expected to pay without bargaining but that is very rare. In the north TX area, I know of only 2 dealerships that operate in that wan and neither one has any commissioned salespeople.
