UGH, day before a holiday and I might have found a deal...

Was looking around on Autotrader and found a 2015, 136 HR with 30k miles. They're asking $21,800 for it. Only one pic on the website, but has a clean Carfax(If that means anything)

At that price I could afford to upgrade anything that didn't come from the factory.

Good price right? Or am I just fooling myself???

AH crap, just ran the VIN and it comes back as a low roof model. I'm guessing the dealer screwed up

Fooling yourself? On price I don't know enough to say.

BUT... "At that price I could afford to upgrade anything that didn't come from the factory" ?
If you've read though many posts on here you might think about that statement, as many have found tinkering with things on a PM hard. Hard to get parts from RAM or getting anything aftermarket to connect up. Not impossible but it seems more of a challenge than a lot of other vehicles?

Good Luck though! PM's rock!

I guess now is a good time to be buying the 2015's...

I've come across a few pretty good/looking deals like those, then I read the fine print and my excitement goes away. These prices usually include "all applicable discounts and rebates". The problem is that I don't qualify for several of the rebates. There was $2000 rebate if you currently own a competitors commercial van. $500 active military discount. $1500 prior customer of this dealership discount. $1500 rebate when financed through dealer at 6.9%. $500 midwest resident reabte. etc. etc.

It's not the same at every dealer, but at many dealers the actual rebates listed are only applicable to a very select few individuals.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2015 2500 HR with the diesel. I really didn't want a white van, but just seems like the other colors are hard to find. This is at a local dealer.

First price they threw out was $32,500. I'm going back down there this weekend to see what the final number will be.

Wish me luck!

You are at the sweet spot. Save more and you are golden. Save a lot more and get it painted sandstone metallic!

I saw that too, I think someone pointed it out earlier. I was dead set on one I found in NC, but ran into the same thing.

This is just price less the $2000 Ram rebate that's out there for anyone. I think I'm getting a good deal. I'll know more this weekend.

We drove down and checked out the van last Saturday and took it for a test drive. Thanks to this group I knew what I was getting in to and what to look for

I wish I had the patience and $$$ to hold out and have one built, (I really love your sandstone colored one), but $32k for a 2500 diesel is just too much to pass up.

Going to get it Saturday morning.

They came down to $31,500 for it.

Getting excited now! Time to start ordering crap on Amazon

Is this for a camper conversion or something else?
