Hello, looking to purchase a brand new static- rules of the site dictate it has to be new and over a certain purchase price. Finding if difficult to get clear and straight answers regarding price, transparency is proving difficult to gain. We are finding the asking price is often significantly more than the RRP and can’t seem to get clear responses on what makes up the difference - double glazing and central heating are all fitted as standard in the ones we are looking at so the additional costs seem to be for optional extras such as dishwasher, washing machine etc but these do not make up the huge difference. We are thinking that there must be ‘hidden’ costs such as commission or deals with park owners that are driving the prices up. We also seem to be buying at the worst time as demand is high and have been told that manufactures can’t keep up with the demand so caravan sales companies are able to name their price. Being new to all this any help or advice would be appreciated so that we can navigate the minefield. Thank you
