Thanks for your help!!

Thanks for all your input! I appreciate each of you taking the time. I am in the process of selling my unit first, and now thanks to your information I feel more comfortable in dealing with the dealer. I see a 25ft SS/SE in our near future!! God Bless Airstream...... !! And God Bless all of you good people for your help!

We didn't have a trade-in. This was our first trailer. It was special ordered (from the same dealer you bought your coach from, I believe).

Interesting. When did you go through the process to order? It was my understanding that a changing of the guard so to speak happened around late August and that seemed to be when they stopped wheelin' and dealin' like the did for our current Safari with our Bambi trade in.

The trade I think also made a fair difference in how much they wanted to deal for an SE.

We ordered our SE in April or May of 2005 and picked it up in June.

It makes sense how you got the deal then. You got the deal under the old mgmt and you didn't have a trade, which would have made a difference had you tried the deal in August/September timeframe. I made several inquiries and was quite serious about it, but they wouldn't deal. So I began to realize that it was not only the newer mgmt, but also I had a trade they didn't seem to want. They offered what I was led to believe was a retail to retail, is how they were kind of positioning it, but it wound up being full retail for the new coach and the extreme lowest end retail for the trade, if it even made the NADA retail numbers they offered for the trade.

In the end I walked, since they couldn't do better. I'd be very interested in seeing if they would do a similar deal now that you have your coach. If they follow suit, they'd probobly not deal as well as they did back in June.

This is great information. I'm also going to be ordering the 25' SS SE in a couple of months. I've been talking to a dealer and he's been indicating that the price will be in a range equivalent to about a 12 to 15% discount.
