Best airstream dealer

Anyone have an airstream dealership or salesman they would recommend? The ones I have contacted so far don't seem motivated to make a sale...but want a deposit...

I bought mine at Foley RV (a.k.a. Airstream of Mississippi) 2 years ago, and have only good things to say about the dealership and sales staff, the parts department, and only one minor complaint about the service department (they let my house batteries run down below 0% charge while it was in the shop), otherwise all good things to say about the service department as well.

Highly recommend you give Karyn and Nick a call at Airstream of Spokane.
I checked out/visited three before finding them......the best.

We recommend Colonial Airstream in Lakewood, NJ. We've purchased two new Airstreams from them. Both deals were made over the phone with Lauren Botticelli as the sales person. I think they are the largest dealer in the US and seem honest. Even though it was a 10 hour drive for us...it was worth it.

Check out Eric Davis at Haydocy Airstream in Columbus, OH. Eric is the man if you want someone really into the Airstream.

I agree with Joyce and Kim. Colonial AS has treated us fairly,

Second this. Competent service staff and friendly management. This is a good place to do business.

Funny I just watched one of the videos with Patrick Botticelli and thinking of calling him. Only problem is I live in Wyoming!! Pretty far.

We highly recommend Colonial as well. Patrick, Lauren, and David are great. They got us our deal when other dealers said that it couldn't be done. We are very happy with our purchase and experience with colonial. Well worth the drive from Chicago.

It may be far, but it is well worth the trip. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable, as is his wife Lauren. Just talking to them over the phone can answer many specific questions you have about Airstreams and specific models, even if you don't buy from them. At least you could compare their price with another dealer that is closer.
For us, we bought both of ours, sight unseen. We did the paperwork and owned both trailers months before seeing either one. We depended on their integrity.
We arrived the night before our orientation was scheduled. They had the trailers ready for use to stay in behind the dealership. The next morning, their technician, Kevin, went through everything and got us hitched up. Others, picking up new motorhomes, were next to us.
This could be a nice vacation trip for you. You could even plan a stop at Jackson Center to see the factory or get any glitches taken care of.
Could be fun!
