    Works both ways. When I found my current motorhome (after a few years of looking for that exact model) it seemed a bit too expensive.

    I looked at it anyway, and literally as I looked round, the price dropped by 4000.

    There was a reason, though. Seems the dealer had been trying to sell it on behalf of a customer who had bought a new one off them, but just before I went to look, they'd bought it off him (for an undisclosed price) fixed a few defects, and dropped the asking price from "a bit too high" to "a good deal" (in my opinion).

    I claim no skill in this: I was just lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

    Who needs who the most? I always say.
    Dealers should realise that it's them who need their money more than we need their deal.
    I'm always a two offer guy, I always walk away after I name my second price.

    It will have devalued once 2019 dawns because (on paper) it is last years model. If you had turned up again in early January, they would have accepted a lower price for it.

    Judging by the prices Southdowns want for Burstner spare parts, selling motorhomes is not the best part of their business.

    Too late was the bottom line answer and it would now cost us 2K more to swap, and we are not prepared to do that!
    I do understand why as an extra incentive was previously offered via the manufacture.
    So sometimes, it pays to be quick, but sometimes maybe the powers above might be saying stick!
    Had a call today and the dealer has offered the original deal and will not charge for the damp check and hab service which our van has just had!
    I did play hard ball!
    The overall deal is now good, if I want an A Class!
