    no-one makes a loss, the bigger retailers will all be on a rebate scheme and/or buying bulk lots and/or end of model promo's. They may even have better trading terms for the caravan shows (60 days instead of 30 days).

    example: The retailer guarantees to purchase $10m per annum (only 200 units per store in the case of Auto-One) and Waeco sells them the stock at 40% less RRP. If the retailer meets this target, the retailer with receive a rebate of 10% (give or take). The math is simply a big win for the retailers head office (the individual outlet gets a little less margin but wins on cashflow) and the manufacturer moves containers of their product.

    Waeco and manufacturers similar will never undercut the major retailers as this will put themselves into a venerable position against their competition and possibly lose that retailer if they can't make enough margin.

    That's an expensive way to carry a spare tyre. Just place the tyre across the 2 rear bars and use 4 eyebolts and a ratchet strap.

    Yep, I went into my local Autobarn and they didn't have any in stock but ordered one with the discount for me. $1026 for the 2128mm platform and backbone. Was an extra $30 freight but i was fine with that.
