Red face Dealing on Airstream at Colonial Airstream in NJ

Question for anyone who has dealt with Colonial Airstream...we have talked with the GM and gotten a cash quote. Do they offer their best deal up front or do they negotiate? How would you proceed...we're fairly new to this Airstream business!! Thanks for any info/advice!

Colonial is active on Air Forums. Maybe you'll get your answer from them.

At this time of the year, and depending on the model, you should expect to pay 15 to 20% off of list. The more expensive and slower selling models would be at the high end of the range and the smaller less expensive ones at the lower end.

They tend to be competitive, especially since adventure northwest came into market. They don't tend to vary, 15-20% off retail, then not much movement.

Used, that changes things. Make them an offer. Three things can happen, either they take it, make you a counter offer or they don't budge. It is no different than used car sales.

That would be for clearance 2015s, right? Surely not 2016's. Though the OP didn't specify which. Certainly the heat is on to get rid of the 2015s.

Foley RV in Gulfport, MS beat Colonial hands down on a clearance priced 2014. I didn't even have to haggle, their first price was way less than Colonial and they were much nicer to deal with IMHO. Plus, I didn't have to go to NJ.

Too bad you missed out on a trip to South Jersey. The garden part of the state.

We bought ours used at Foley. Ron is great to deal with. I recommend them whenever I get a chance. When we were looking at new one's I had my target set at 20% off MSRP though.

Reliable RV. They only show one new AS trailer, 2015 FC 30 twin. They show 13% reduction at $79k. 20% would put it around $72k.

I went to check out a 2015 25rb twin at this dealer this summer that was sold just to get an idea about twin beds. The salesman volunteered the selling price $63k from the $78k MSRP.

Not sure why they don't get any more AS in stock. They are a multi-manufacturer dealer so maybe the Airstream line is not in their best interest, yet they sell all they get in.

We bought our 2014 Eddie Bauer from Colonial around Thanksgiving of 2013 and got slightly over 20% off. It was the then current model year. I would expect that a "year old" new model would have yielded a slightly better discount.

But since OP has clarified he/she is talking about a used unit, I would say that all bets are off. Make an offer and see what happens.
