Shopping for New Airstream

My partner and I went to the local Seattle Airstream dealer (Airstream Adventures NW, in Covington) several times and ultimately decided to buy an Airstream Flying Cloud 27 FB with the awning package (after initially looking at the 23 FB & then the 25 FB). They quoted us a price that seemed unreasonably high to me, so I began calling Airstream dealers throughout the west coast and some in the midwest and east coast, to obtain their prices. All of those prices were several thousand dollars lower. Airstream Los Angeles quoted me an even lower price. James Phillips, at Toscano RV, in Los Banos, CA (about an hour south of San Jose, just off I-5 in Merced County), however, quoted the lowest price --- $7,000 less than my local dealer. When I asked him if he would accept my 2015 5th wheel trailer in trade, he told me he could give me 90% of its wholesale value assuming I could deliver it to them in "like new" condition, which I thought I could. Bottom Line: I was able to buy the Airstream for $7,000 less that its local price quote and trade-in my virtually new 5th wheel against it at a price that was low but I could live with it (and avoid having to try to sell it myself) --- at a cost of driving the 5th wheel 900 miles in two days. Furthermore, Mr. Phillips and his manager, Mr. Flores, could not have been more reasonable & helpful in putting the deal together & accommodating in seeing it through to its completion. If you are looking to buy an Airstream, I recommend James Phillips and Toscano RV without qualification.
