I paid 132000 plus TTL for a 2014.5 two months ago. That's a good price.

I know some folks are a little uncomfortable with threads discussing how much we paid for our AIs. We all want the best deals for our purchase, but there are so many variables affecting a discounted price, not the least being the dealers location and overheads. I can’t see how a fancy city-based Mercedes Benz dealership can have lower overheads than a rural RV dealership.
My first Airstream was a Flying Cloud - new old stock - aka a “leftover” that I bought on eBay. The price was fantastic and at the time I was really happy about it. But the dealer was on the East Coast, and I’m in Arizona: I had to pay for delivery charges and they were not trivial. Then after it was delivered, I had the usual shakedown issues, and I found out there were no approved Airstream travel trailer service dealers in AZ at that time.
Moral of the story: it’s not all about money!

Congratulations, Teamaron!

We financed ours, then began making double oayments each month, which will have it paid off in a couple more years.

Instead of double payments, have one patment amount put directly to the principal. Unless this is what you meant. Cuts the finance charges way down. Jim

If you own your own home, did you ever consider taking out a Home Equity Loan or reset your mortgage? Many times the rate is much lower than what you will get on your loan for the motorhome. I have a Line of Credit Mortgage at 2.25% for over 5 years. Better than I can get on any motorhome loan. And it's a mortgage so it's deductible.

Can you elaborate on the way to write off a RV loan unless it's on a HELOC like Bikerbill mentioned..

If you use a HELOC or any other mortgage instrument to purchase your RV and run into financial distress the lender can foreclose on your home! If you get an RV loan and run in to financial distress they may take the RV but they can't touch your home.

2nd home interest is tax deductible.

Yeah, but you could still live in the RV

Not sure if the IRS would buy a RV as a second home but one could always try. Unfortunately I'm already using the 2nd home option.
