When to buy used

We are looking to buy our first airstream. What time of year is best to buy a used airstream. Pickings seem a little slim in mid summer.

There is no magic time. You have to be ready to buy when what you want at a fair price pops up. Thinking about it usually means someone else will get it....I looked for 2-3 years for my current trailer. Scouring classifieds and Craigslist yielded no results. I had to reach out to other Airstreamers for leads. I went to an Airstream park and left my name. Someone with a trailer called me with a trailer that hadn't been advertised. I have no doubt it would have sold quickly if it had been.

Any time you find the one you have been looking for. If you wait it will be gone. Be willing to drive cross country if necessary.

Thanks that's helpful. It has taken us a couple of years to get finances in place. Now ready and will be proactive in our hunt. Thanks

I can only say that when I started looking at used ones, I was out of luck. That was in the winter in FL. The dam broke loose in the Spring though the observation is not scientific. I saw several come on the market then.

I bought mine used about 15 years ago... I had looked and looked for a front kitchen model... which are pretty rare... and when one came available at a fair price, I did not hesitate to drive from Phoenix to Northern California to get it... Have some idea what you want... know the Blue Book values... get the seller a fair price... and GO AND GET IT... hesitate and you will lose out to someone else who will...

Watching prices and selection it seems seasonal, but that could just be an illusion. Once we made the decision to buy an AS, we got lucky and stumbled into a used one at a decent price for what needed repaired or replaced.

When we started hunting, it was in June. It seemed that at the end of summer around the early fall the number of Airstreams used started going up.

When to buy used?
When Sothaven RV has a used 2015 22 Sport, original MSRP 45,000, whose owner fell ill, and the ad says "make offer"-
Someone's gonna get a really good deal on a practically new trailer!
It was on their website yesterday, but Ontario is a long, long way from Mississippi-

Thanks, we are actually looking for a 27FB, but that would be a good deal for someone. For a good deal Mississippi would not be too far.
