Re: New Catalina Pricing

Manufacturers often have different pricing structures. THe industry I spent 25 years in, some mfg's only gave dealers 10% off suggested retail and some went as high as 40-50% off suggested retail. So you can't assume you can always negotiate a set discount.

You mentioned getting a big discount on Fords. I've alway found that the Big 3 (US) auto makers have always given bigger discounts to the dealers allowing them more wiggle room to negotiate where the same was not true with many foreign car manufacturers.
So you might easily get 15% off a Ford/Chevy but you would be hard pressed to get 10% off a Honda/Toyota.
