Designed for today’s smaller trucks, the Travel Star is lighter than comparable fifth wheels while boasting convenient features, like a residential faucet with pull-out sprayer, ample storage and Tuffshell vacuum-bonded laminated sidewalls.
The Sticker Price (or MSRP - Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is the retail price set by the factory. According to AAA, the Sticker Price is marked up by an average of 13.5% from what the dealer paid for the vehicle.
This is what the manufacturer theoretically charges the dealer for the vehicle. While this price includes manufacture costs, such as regional ad fees, it does not include discounts, incentives, or holdbacks (money allocated back to the dealer upon sale). These considerations make the dealer’s actual cost lower than the Factory Invoice.
This is the aforementioned Factory Invoice, but with the holdback taken out. This is essentially what the cost is to the dealer since he will be given the holdback money in the future.
The FactoryPricing information and Bottom Line should be used when negotiating with the car dealer. For a no-hassle experience, FactoryPricing recommends buying from one of our Certified dealers found on our website.
