    Default If I order new Rt limited

    If I order a new rt limited and outfit it with the items I want such as hitch, control module and passenger armrests. Does that price include install at dealer? Versus, if I wait to see what the dealer gets in I would definitely have to pay labor costs on the install of any add ons.

    That all depends on the deal you make. I try to negotiate the install as part of the set up. Ask them to throw in the items.

    If you're talking about a 2020 RT I doubt you're going to get any big price breaks because the thing is going to come in a crate with nothing but standard, off the assembly line configuration and it will be a fresh new design. Everything else is going to be installed by the dealer as part of the assembly process. Build a spreadsheet with the MSRP of everything you want and have rows for dealer labor for each accessory installation and total OTD price. Have columns for various dealers so you can do line by line comparison. Shop it to various dealers to see who may give you what breaks. Remember, the quality of service after purchase can be worth more than initial price savings.

    x 2. Put all the stuff on the spreadsheet. Break everything down on labor/accessory cost. You might get them all...but is all in the deal you finally make.

    I realize that not everyone is mechanically inclined. However, the items you mentioned are not that hard to install yourself with the same basic tools you should have and carry to be able to deal with minor issues on the road. You will only need to remove some bodywork to plug in the wiring harness for the trailer lights, and the hitch slides over the swingarm and utilizes one bolt that goes through the rear axle. In the video posted by BRP at the dealer show, they made mention of the armrests being much easier to install than the previous ones. All of the Can AM accessories come with detailed instructions that include photos. You can even access instructions online first and then decide if you want to do the work yourself. You can save a ton of money.

    I have bought two new spiders. Both times all the labor was free to install accessories when purchased from the dealer. One discounted 10% off, the other 20% off. If they want your money, make them work for it. Both deals were discounted $$.. Remember if you purchase a bike that is not in stock, has to be ordered. It doesn't hit their floor plan, $$. Work the deal to your advantage. Tom
