    We have just been to our local Swift dealer and we are very interested in the Bolero 684FB.
    I am a little disappointed in the discount offered and wonder what other Funsters have negotiated.
    The OTR price including the Vogue Pack is £55960 and they are offering it to me for £53453. Thats only £2507 off. I work that out to be aprox 4.5%.
    Am I expecting too much or is that a good discount.
    I have to bear in mind that there are very few of these about now and will have to wait until June to collect it. I haven't done the deal yet so would appreciate Funsters advice.
    John.

    I think your answering your own question here... If it's a popular or rare model then the dealer may have an upper hand..
    Find at least one other dealer who may have one and play one against the other.

    My last new van I bought in December, called all the dealers who had one in stock and almost everyone came back with what seemed a standard 10% off list.. Lucky for me the was a van still at the factory and i had two dealers trying to sell it to me..
    One offered 10% off, the other a lot more and he won :) !!!

    Thanks for that Tonka.
    I have phoned a couple of other dealers and one cant supply and the other is struggling to locate one.
    As you say, I think he has the upper hand and will easily sell it to someone else if not me.

    If you order a new one/buy display model (should be made good to new standard at manufacturers cost) at the NEC Motorhome Show (October) then can get manufacturers offers as well as dealer discount playing one off against the other there(y) The offer is usually an accessory pack & worth (retail value) between £1000 - £3000. There is a NEC show early this year but don't know if same offers as in October as that is when most new models are launched.

    Amazes me that people expect a dealer to give them a high discount and yet they will demand 100% red carpet treatment in the future.............

    Less profit leaves less for service........................... can't have it both ways, do you get a discount in Tescos or Waitrose unless they are past sell by date.

    We negotiated 15% off our new Swift
    If you don't ask you don't get!
    It's all about price conditioning, simply explain that your budget is only £X and see what the say
    Thek will offer to meet you half way between your offer end their asking price, but stick to your guns - and always remember the golden rule
    He who has the gold - makes the rules

    No offence meant Peter but you cant blame a bloke for trying ;)
    I did, in fact, call at Johnscross yesterday but was told you are no longer Swift agents so could not help.

    Peter, I'm intrigued......
    What '100% red carpet' treatment would a prospective buyer get by paying maximum 'retail' price for a MH from a dealer than they would buying the exact same van from another dealer at £1,000's less?

    I suspect that a dealer who has been hammered on price is unlikely to go the extra mile at service time.

    From my experience JC have gone out of their way to be helpful to me and haven't charged me for little adjustments that I asked for.

    If I were a dealer I would charge in full at service time those customers who demanded the biggest discount.

    What goes around, comes around...

    And that was their offer without me beating them up. Happy with that(y)

    Possibly an import and with the way the euro is against the pound today, sterling price to dealer has dropped
