I agree, with 'Protagonist', Airstream of Mississippi. Easy to get to is always a plus. I have driven in NJ before. Compared to that, Mississippi is 'Wide-Open' spaces
There is a fella in the service department, 'Gary' and he knows hitches! He helped me adjust my Equalizer hitch for the new 28 International. We adjusted right down to the quarter inch rise or drop! It was perfect for the 845 mile drive back home to Virginia. It did not require any other adjustments. I have had my hitch for 7 years and we checked the torque on the bolts. You want a perfectionist when working on a hitch. Gary knows hitches !
Decent price, had the trailer we wanted, not to many surprises on the trade. Call Louis and tell him his friend in VA recommended him.
Have a good one!

We had great experiences with two Texas dealerships. One was in Fort Worth and one was in Buda, outside of Austin. Camper Clinic II in Buda had a large selection. We ended up purchasing our 2014 FC in Buda because they had the floor plan we needed when we wanted it. Fort Worth knew we were shopping in both places but the floor plan we wanted was on order and not due to arrive at their dealership until late June. We needed it to prepare for our extended trip in July. We will be passing through Casper so wave if you see us on the road!

Either Airstream NW (Seattle/Boise is closer to you) or Colonial. We bought from Colonial from Denver, CO. Easy drive at the time of year for pickup.

If you haven't seen all of the models or know exactly what you want it is worth a trip to Colonial or ASNW in Seattle to see nearly if not all models in one visit.

Lots of folks travel across the country to deal with Colonial. We are repeat offenders there and highly recommend them.

We towed our last Airstream (23 FC FB, which we bought new at a dealership thirty five miles from us) back to Colonial for some reason or other. ;-)

In my opinion, they are simply the best all around Airstream dealer in the nation.

Bought mine at Toscano RV in Los Banos, CA. Salesman was Michael Scott who was knowledgeable and not pushy. Service department is excellent. No complaints whatsoever.

There is a major Airstream event in Gillette, WY going on right now. There is a dealer from Mesa, AZ as the "selected" dealer of this annual event being held there. There will probably be a sampling of nearly every new 2015 model on site.

Switz,

Do you know the name of the event or have a link to a website with details?
The only Mesa, AZ Airstream dealer I know of is Desert Autoplex. They are a new dealer in the area and they do not have any 2015 models yet.
Would other dealers be bringing the 2015 models to the show?

I'll second Eric Davis at Haydocy Airstream in Columbus, Ohio. Very fast growing dealership.

He is very close to the factory, so a tour will be included in your visit, compliments of Eric!

Got appreciate that he has a model of his folks airstream in his office he took trips in as a kid! Not too many dealers as invested as him in the lifestyle.

I am buying from Colonial, they literally saved me close to $10,000. Well worth a cross country drive from California.

Evidently a lot of west coasters buy from the. Ship the tow vehicle east and then fly back to take delivery....

+1 on Colonial.

Oh, I forgot to add the one thing that helped us the most. We couldn't decide between FB and RB twin on our FC. We went to get the FB and looked at the RB as they were bringing it up from a back lot. We really liked the RB so they left both parked side by side and then left the area, telling us to take all the time we wanted to look at both. That was immensely helpful and we ended up with the perfect choice for us, the RB twin. So, if you are on the fence for one thing or another, you might think outside the box for help in deciding. Good luck!
