Any thoughts about a discount on new '06?

Could anyone guess or suggest how much a dealer will discount a new 2006 Classic tt?

We do not mind travelling many miles to buy.

I found something on the internet that looked good to me. When I told the salesperson what I wanted, she suggested a new 2006. When I told her that I really didn't want to spend that much, she implied a good price could be had.

After thinking it over, maybe it would be a good idea, IF her price was fair for a 2006.

Does the 2006 Classic 25' have disc brakes? Does a 2005 27' Classic have them?

Pat

In May, 2006, we bought a new 2005 25' Safari SE for for 22 percent below MSRP. It was the best deal that we could find at the time. We made our purchase at Sanders Airstream in Alachua, Florida (near Gainesville). Several other dealers in the southeast had the same unit, but were considerably higher than Sanders. You might want to check out their inventory at www.airstream.com and see if they have any '06 units in stock that would interest you. Sanders is also a Hensley dealer, and we got a good price on our Hensley when we bought the Airstream.

To the best of my knowledge, '06 and '07 Classics do come from the factory with disc brakes.

We are not as far into the 07 year as I thought! Will probably have to up my $$$ a bit. Maybe a lot!

I checked Sanders site, but they don't have what I want listed, but will give them a call anyway.

Thanks!
Pat

There are still 2005 and 2006 25' Clasiics left on dealers lots for a price that should be far better than 2007's. maybe as much as 25% + off. Yes. they do have the disc brakes.

Craftsman is correct

2005s and 2006s are still out there and 20-25% is a good target on the 2006s and maybe even more on a 2005s. The more loaded the greater the chance of discount, options have high mark ups that allow for more discounting. Because weather is more dominant in the north, especially the north-east, dealers there may be more motivated during the late fall/ winter months.

Hi, "she implied a good price could be had," This is the bait on the hook used to reel you in. Numbers talk and B.S. walks. As in any vehicle sales, the discount you pay, is and will be counter acted by extras.
1. Financeing
2. Extended Warranties
3. Insurance
4. Dealer add ons Etc.
When you get into that last little office, called the Finance office, that is where the final price will be determined. "Well Mr. Jones, how does one dollar down and one dollar per day for the rest of your life sound?" "Fantastic, sign me up. And I won't even read the contract, since I trust you so much."
Be smart and do your home work.

Bob

hi pat...

check the inventory of www.airstreamofarkansas.com

they have great prices and will not do any bait/switch nonsense....

the new licensing agreement limits pricing info dealers can post....

but call them and ask...they are very competitive and absolutely honest regarding all deals....

cheers

Thanks all!

We went to Bates RV today, and the one we went to see was sold! We did get to see the interior, and would like to still get one like it. There might be one in AZ, 2185 miles from here.

I will call the AS Dealer in Arkansas, but they don't show any on on the net.

Don't you just LOVE the little office where the add-ons come? I try to never pay them, but did get stuck last week when we bought the Suburban. We bought an '05, so I could't walk out like I did once on a Chrysler. We wanted THAT one!

Thanks for all in suggestions!

Pat

Thanks, DFord79!

We could only find the 06 we wanted in AZ, and did not want to travel that far, so, we bought a '99 28' Excella. It is spotless. The one thing about it is, to me, it seems a LOT longer than a 25' Classic!

The $27,000 difference in cost is nice too.

We will use this one to see how things go, then look for a FB Classic in a couple of years.

Pat

Oh no, that's not true! I spoke to a dealer a couple weeks ago and asked specifically if there is a good time of year to buy.

She told me that prices are the same spring, summer, fall and winter.

She must be a great salesperson; she didn't crack a smile, or look away.
