Consignment Recomendations in Florida

Hi All,

After reading a Airstream Article (Sutton), it recommended selling your Airstream through a Consignment Company with a good website. I rather like this idea because they may be able to get me a better price and handle all the important details.

That being said, can anyone recommend a consignment company which they have had personal experience. Prefer anywhere in Fl, but will diffinately consider other area.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks much.

Freedomrider,

Hello....Mike Carter with RV Specialists is a good option for Central Florida. He came to me as a recommendation from Orlando RV (Airstream Dealer). Mike does their overflow warranty work when they are booked up. He has been in the business over 26 years and has done work personally for me. His main business is Mobile RV Repair, but he is well connected in this area. PM me if you would like his contact information.

Best!!

Warranty work authorized by the factory? Not a dealer? Be careful. Never heard of a dealer subbing out warranty work, unless he is authorized to work on the appliances by these mfg.

Thanks for your responses. We are still looking for a consignment option. It is always good to have options for repairs when you are mobile,

Thanks again.

In 2010 I consigned by Class A diesel to RV World in Nokomas, FL just South of Sarasota. They had it sold in 11 weeks. The major advantage with consignment to a dealer is they have the ability to take a trade in. The disadvantage is financial, they get a cut so you get less. I was happy with RV World as they stuck to the agreement as I did.

Consignment Recomendations in Florida

I bought from the following dealer.

A to Z Motors
Vince Cardinale
925-914-9199

He is located in Calif., but he has a lot of contacts in Florida and across the country. Give him a call, he may be able to buy your unit, or sell your unit.

Warranty repair

When Avionstream said that he was weary of a dealer that pushed off warranty work, I figured that he must not be from Florida. Tampa told me that when my batteries on a new Serenity failed 3 days after picking it up that they could not possibly look at it until February(3 months off) that maybe I should take it to Camping World.
Amazed me!

Again, I don't think that a dealer can sublet warranty work,unless it is an appliance, etc, that has its own non airstream warranty. Be careful.

Sanders in Alachua would never do that to you, referring to the batterys. They are in Florida and I have lived here for forty years. Just be careful which dealer you choose. There is a difference.

I could not find the article from Sutton you are referring to so do not know what it said. Unless there is some reason you can not sell your Airstream yourself I would list it on this sites Classifieds. I have sold 2 and bought 2 on here and am very pleased. If you price it right people that can buy will buy. Give it a shot before you lock in to a dealer.

Agree
Sanders is a very good and honorable company. We purchased our present Airstream from them. It is a family dealer and I know several others that have had good service from them.

Additionally we sold our Airstream here in Classifieds in just a few days as several of our friends. All transitions were good sales. Give good evaluation, information and lots of pictures in your ad. Put your phone # in for easy access. Non of us had any problems w the buyers or the sales. A good rig goes very fast.

Thanks all. After giving it some more consideration, is seems like a no-braineer not to list it here first to evaluate the response. It is good to hear others have had very positive experiences.

Thanks again.
