I haven't heard it, but it wouldn't shock me....I think there has been one each year since I got into Airstreaming back in late 2002. Typically the production of the next model year starts the new prices. The '08s would most likely start production in late May timeframe...give or take a few weeks either direction.

Well, I don't know about the WHOLE trailer price increase; however, I wanted to order a wall mount bracket for my 20" LCD and they are now $345.00 ++ shipping. What could those things be made of???? I bought a $79.00 one (which I thought was too much to pay) and I am having trouble with the "tilt" part of it. It doesn't hold the TV up, it always tilts down. Anyone have a bracket that doesn't have the tilt feature. I would like to know which one to get to replace this thing I have.

You put a few options on a 34 footer, and you are well into a six figure MSRP. That's a bunch for a travel trailer. I love Airstreams and would not consider having anything else, but the price does scare a lot of people.

I guess that's what makes the "Used Airstream" market so viable.

yes, $60,000 will buy alot of airline tickets, rental cars, and lodging. Sometimes I think I am nuts even entertaining the idea of purchassing a late model airstream . Wish I could put my finger on exactly what is so appealing about streaming.

You may be of unsound mind. We are also. We've had our '05 25' Safari for about 9 months now and have spent 82 nights in it. We absolutely love it to the point that it suprises us. What drew us to the Airstream was the classic shape and iconic status. What makes an Airstream so appealing is that it is an Airstream. Reason does not apply. If you can afford it, just do it.

Increase?

Based on a recent review of available Airstreams at Colonial RV, it appears the 2007 model year currently on the lot are approximately 8% to 10% more than a similar 2006 model. Just an observation.

We have been interested in the Classic model for some time and noticed a significant increase in pricing of the '06 and '07 models in the Classic line. The reason, according to the dealer we spoke to, is Airstream is consolidating options that were available in the '05 to be included as standard features in the newer models. As an example, in '05 the standard features of the Classic were corion cabinet surfaces, oak cabinets, vinyl ceiling and walls, etc. and various other items I can't recall. If you chose the Limited Upgrade Package for $7,841, Burganndy exterior graphic/awning, gold accednt raised lettering on the exterior, hickory wood interior, electric stabilizer jacks, flag storage, acrylic entrance door handle, hardwood tabaletops and credenza top, jackets and caps would be included. A pretty pricey option!
Then, in 2006, a number (but not all) of the above items in the Limited Upgrade Package were offered as standard features (such as the hickory wood interior. These additional features increased the base price a hefty amount.
2007 Classics have included even more of the previously optional items as new standard features. Standard features now include awnigs on 3 sides, oil rubbed bronze bath accessories, ultra leathr lounge and dinette, 10 cu.ft. refrigerator, galley and bath skylights, flag storage box, and other features I failed to mention.
All the above items were included in orders after 11/06 and boosted the base price by about 4+%. It appears Airstream may be continuing to incorporate more of the items offered as optional features in previous years to standard items in future year models.
All the above according to dealerspeak...IF that is true, then why is Airsteam doing this? Any thoughts out there?

A lot of the options that you mentioned were not standard on the 07.Classics when I placed my order and took delivery on 10/12/06. These items were still optional extras: Leather couch, skylights,flag storage box,awnings on back window and street side, larger propane tanks, wireless outside radio, solar, generator prep,15000 btu ac These and maybe other options that I've forgotten were listed were priced separately.

The dealer said many of the options you referred to above are now standard with orders after 11/06 which included a 4+% increase. I'm calling the factory next week to verify

Not to mention that in 5 years, that 6 figure total could be worth more than half....... unless you are a fulltimer, have money to burn, looking at preowned unit or gettng a smaller unit and investing the remainder is a better bet at the dollar we're talkin' about.

Dealers will say, yea, an Airstream is a great investment...years later it'll be worth more than the other brands.......but if you do the math, they loose as much value in the first 5 years as adjusting for the economies of scale of the SOBs. An Airstream is not a house, and will depreciate rapidly the first 5 years, not to mention wear and tear on a moving house on wheels.
