Timing is everything

SPRING - is the RV industry's hot time to sell, so if you wait until fall, you should get a better deal on any unit that the dealer doesn't want to hold over the winter.

MODEL YEAR Changeover - Airstream's new model year starts May 15. As soon as the new 2015's are on the floor, the dealer is motivated to move the 2014's FAST. If the new year model has no magic features you MUST have, make your best deal and never look back.

If you can wait, look in the classifieds, craigslist, etc for a gently used one.. you can save that big first year depreciation too!

I was recently quoted 17% off MSRP on a 2014 27FB. I don't know exactly how long the unit has been on the lot.

If you want to know how long it's been on the lot you can get a good idea from the built date stamped on the plate on the left side (road side )of most trailers.

I'm sitting in my new 2014 25fb Int Sig at Foley RV in Gulfport MS. When I get home tomorrow we will have 2 airstreams in our backyard (our old 23 fb that we sold doesn't get picked up until Tuesday).

It's hard to imagine the experience could have been any easier thanks to the folks at Foley RV. In fact based on past experience I was expecting to need hours and I planned to stay the night on their lot (I had to drive down from Little Rock). I was finished with everything within an hour of arriving. (I'm staying overnight anyway....felt like I was too tired to drive back).

There was no haggling on the price. I offered on the high side of the 15%-20% off range and they accepted. They held it 3 weeks for me. Sent me all the papers ahead of time so me andy wife could review and sign.

They did offer a very good trade in value (before I had sold our 23fb), but I knew I could get a little more selling privately.

We bought our 2014 30 ft Flying Cloud from Foley RV too. Great folks. We had it there completing a couple of things we wanted done and picked it up about 10ish this morning. You were probably there. We are at Buccaneer State Park in Waveland camping. Great park. You should consider camping here sometime when y'all are back down this way.

We have camped in Arkansas a couple of time and really enjoyed it. I'm sure we will end up there again.

We have a lot of great State Parks in Arkansas. I'm sure other states do as well, but that is all we know at this time. With two working parents and kids most of our trips are weekends which mean we stay in AR. Our preference is to stay in the mountains (Ouachitas and Ozarks), but there are some nice parks along Crowley's Ridge as well (Crowley's Ridge SP, Village Creek SP, Missisippi River SP).
It is on my todo list to start exploring Mississippi and Louisiana.

I hung out down there growing up as a "Bay Rat" back in the day. That place got tore up real bad during Katrina. Sounds like they have made great progress getting back to business.

I agree....20-22% is doable...just need to find the right dealer that will work with you.

That storm was bad! They are doing a great job to bring this to par. The park is back and operating very well.
