I bought ours on Air classifieds! Only drove 1200 miles one way to get her. miles of smiles. I wouldn't have it any other way.

We found our Classic at Woodland RV right before the Lansing International. We think we lucked out.

Found my Quiksilver Bambi on ebay. I had been looking for almost 2 years. Turned out to be less than a mile from my home!

We found our Argosy on Craigs list in Baltimore. Wasn't looking for an Airstream but fell in love with it.
She is all original, though we plan on updating a few things. We have had her 11 months and taken her to Georgia twice. Can't wait until the next trip.

Found ours on EBay, bought it from Best Preowned RV in Houston. Delivery to Michigan was included in the sales price.

Marilyn Pyle was wonderful to deal with.

Midwest purchase

I purchased my airstream in MO. Although I had found one that I really liked in FL. and another in TX. both were already sold when I called. When I called about the one that I purchased and found it was still available, I started on the 300 mile journey right away. I paid ernest money that night and returned the following day to take it home. I love my 34 ft. '95 Excella 1000. It was a great purchase. After towing it over 5200 miles and spending several weeks in it, I would not take my money back for it. It is now part of the family. I want to thank Airstream Forum for helping me find my dream home.

I found both of mine on Craiglist. I am still able to find some good deals but I need to behave myself because I don't need another one.

We got ours at the Reading RV show from DJ RV (no longer a AS dealer).

Marketing is a great thing....

The brochure said...."There is no time like the present" So we took the leap.

25 years of camping -- back packing, tent, Motorhome, and a couple of trailers.... finally we upgraded to an Airstream. Our Safari has been great. We have all over the Eastern US and Canada.

We got an incredible deal buying our baby at the RV show
-- We bout it new, but as a left over model -- some $20,000+ less than a comparable model today (ours is 4 years old).

We bought new a 2008 in late 2007 from a dealer in Denver, a dealer I would have not gone to if I knew then what I learned later. The salesman at the other Colorado dealer lied to us and then went to answer the phone and never came back. If there is a next time, and we want a new one, we'll go out of state.

Hi from GA. . . Found our 05 Safari at Oasis RV in Tucson, Az. Flew out, looked at it, bought it and came back with my truck 4 weeks later and drove her 1744 miles home. Excellent experience with the gang at Oasis which is now just a service center with some consignment AS's on hand. I would recommend them to all. Previously I bought my Scotty MH in Santa Fe off of E-Bay. Never seem to find what I'm looking for around here. Regards, Craig
