I haven't dealt with Colonial, so I don't know if a deposit paid to them would be refundable if you decide not to buy, but it would count as part of the down payment if you do decide to buy.

If you are asked to sign ANYTHING, read it carefully!

I was thinking it would be similar to a car in this way- I mean, they are travel trailers. And I think Colonial said most of their business is online out of state. Of course, I know nothing so I should not be making any assumptions.

We just bought a 2015 30' FC at Foley Rv in Mississippi. A great place to go for your Airstream. Bought it for $70,000. It's not a FB bunk, but it still makes me think that $85 is high for what you're looking at. Good luck!
