Is there any place that the Mothership publishes the current Suggested Retail Prices for the things they sell? I understand not putting them in their catalogs, as prices can change several times in the course of a year, and I know they do not do Internet sales, but it would be nice if potential buyers had a general idea what they might expect to pay when they go out looking. Some dealers might not particularly like this, as I know a few of them seem to add an extra markup (perhaps shipping expense?) because when I visit several stores, the prices are all over the place on the same items. However if shipping is the reason, break it out as a non negotiable item, just like they do on automobiles. I really don't think that the current suggested retail prices should be such a deep dark secret, as it almost appears that some dealers are price gouging their customers, which is bad for everyone involved. The customer is smoked off when he discovers that he has been taken advantage of, BGE looks bad because it looks like they possibly condone such acts and the dealer that did the gouging loses a customer who will be sure to tell all of his friends what a poor place to do business that is and possibly besmirch BGE in the process. Internet posting of said prices on their website could be updated in a moments notice to keep abreast of changes that occur as time passes.
