Hi, this is great if it will work for some people, but if you live or work in California you have ten days to change it to California plates. [plus taxes]

buying an airstream

I, too, have fallen for the International 27FB. I have wanted an Airstream for years. Here is my dilemna...I have a deposit at the dealer on a 27FB Serenity...I would like opinions on the resale value of the Serenity's light wood interior vs the darker wood in the other International models. I have found a couple of used 2009 International models and would save at least $10,000 by purchasing a 'like-new' used model. Can anyone advise me on the benefits of buying from the dealer vs saving the money on the used model? Also, the light vs dark wood question is important...thanks!

To get you started on gathering some of the info you are asking about, just go to the very top of this page and on the left hand side click on Forums. After you get there just page down to the Heading Dollars and Cents and pick your topic, for example, Buyers Guidelines and you will be able to read for a long time on the things you are asking about as far as whether to buy from the lot or order.
I ordered but, many prefer to buy off the lot. I'm sure you will get or read a lot of opinions on that subject.
As far as which style of interior, You could start out at the Forums page again and page down to the International section and discuss that with people that have already made the decision you might get more answers or you can just read about what has already been discussed. At least that is the way I would find out about a topic. Or, just try the search button near the top of the page and type in any subject.
Happy searching!

Serenity is a new interior. I doubt anyone will have info on resale value between the two interiors.

You did better than me. I paid that for a 2010 25' FB International CCD.No inverter.



Guess I got bent over.

We purchased at Out of Doors Mart in NC and got hit with the sales tax when we registered in Michigan.

Thank you Bluto and Aquabud. I ended up buying a 1985 Excella 31' that I nabbed the day it hit Craigslist...local, too! I took a bottle of wine to the salesman who so patiently helped me with new models...he knows that if I ever buy new I will purchase from him. (I also promised to show him some good fishing spots ;-)) The Airstream that I bought is in excellent shape. I would like to replace the carpeting (Konecto or cork?), research a more comfortable sofabed and perhaps replace the built-in cabinet next to the fridge with an antique table (for dining, work, etc). I will do my homework and research all the forum articles. Thanks for your help!

Glad to hear you found what you wanted so quickly. It sounds like a nice find. Some people on here look for years to find that perfect trailer. Your very lucky!
Those 80's trailers hold up well too. Good choice!
