Always offer a low number to start with. You can always go up. Also, a cash sale gets their attention as there is less paperwork.

Welcome to the forum where there is large amounts of factual information and opinions. You will soon learn to discern the difference.

I was recently given a sales price of a sold unit that equaled 18% off MSRP. I guess this information was supplied as a suggestion that the dealership I visited was willing to make a sale.

First post. Just a quick thank you to those who contributed to this thread. The info provided here gave me a good deal of confidence going into the negotiations for a new 2015 model. I ended up with what I think is an OK deal (19% off MSRP given the time of year) on a 23D Signature from the local dealership in Missoula, MT. I was able to leverage the slightly better offer from the mega dealership in Boise to work the "local" dealership down. The sale went smooth and I pulled it off the lot this last weekend.

I have been looking at 25FB and 27FB Queen bed Airstream units. There are still some 2014 units out there on lots with limited color choices. Just curious to what extra discount could be expected over the 18 to 20% that is possible on 2015s this late in the model 2015 year. Thoughts?

Thanks Mike

Try Dixie RV dealer in FL...he had some pretty good deals on 14' models I believe. For 15's I haven't seen higher than 20% yet...but AS Adventures is having a sales contest in May so they might be a good place to start the discussion now.

Thanks for letting me know about the May sales drive. I would like to buy in the next couple of weeks. If I can't get a 2014 with a larger discount I may end up with a 2015.

Mike

I think now could be a good time to be looking. AS has their annual dealer mtg at the end of May/first of June, and some dealers will be trying to get their sales up or keep them up prior to the mtg.

15-18% seems to be the off US MSRP range, for new, current model year and in-stock, prices get higher as you move west. Add 5% if you're west coast ?

If it's a use twice and return like new, technically used say 3-6 MO, take off 10% off above,

If it's new last years model closeout take off 10% (or more), don't know how soft the prices really are are on these unsold 2014. (especially with the ducting on the 2015 25'+)

Unusual or unpopular configurations seem to garner an extra 5%-6% off

It's a starting point. I'm sure everyone but me got 88% off and new tires for their TV thrown in.

The motorhome/SOB space seems to have 30%+ off list across the board. More like bragging rights ... so people can say they have a 350k motorhome !

list prices will go up 3% when 2016 sheet comes out and adjustments to list for northern peso will be made

Thanks timhortons for the detailed reply. I have narrowed the search to two units a 27FB Flying Cloud and a 27FB International in NJ. The International has the 100 watt Inverter package the Flying Cloud does not.

I am currently thing about starting at -25% of list and see where I get as I would pay a few more points (5 to 7%) to get the ducted air. We are in Ontario so we should be able to get eastern prices.

Thanks again for the insights and advice.

Mike

All Airstream dealerships pay the same freight charge on each specific model to get the trailer to their lot whether they are in Ohio or Washington state or California. The larger volume dealers, like Colonial, sell more units so they get a deeper discount from Airstream and often have lower sales prices because of that discount.

Colonial will have the first of the 2016 models in June.

Looking forward to seeing the 2016 models and any changes, if any.

Price increase just for the fun of it may the biggest change. Perhaps some fine tuning in the assembly of the ceiling duct work.

I was wondering about a remodel of the ceiling duct work. The external hump in the 2015's appeared like a last minute idea.
