What are typical new trailer dealer discounts/

Hello Everyone,

Buying my first horse trailer. What are typical discount for dealers who sell new horse trailers? I just want to have an idea of what I can expect to get off of the first price the dealer quotes me.

I am looking at 2-horse bumper pull trailers with tack room (7000lb with 2 escape doors and seperate tack room door) in Maryland.

Thanks,

If you can buy straight from the manufacturer do it ;) I just got a brand new all aluminum 2h slant load with tack room for $6,995! It's an Eclipse and they're out of Somerset, OH so we just went down and picked it up. Saved us $300 in shipping fees to a dealer, and the dealer marks them up to about $7,900.

As far as discounts for NEW trailers, I wouldn't expect much...the guy we talked to was going to offer us $500 off, max -- they don't make enough off the brand new trailers to justify too much.

Try to find one that's maybe a 2009 or 2010 that's only been lightly used, then you can maybe deal in a $1k discount or so.
