Before you get an answer to that question, tell the two dealers with the higher quotes that you got a lower quote from whichever dealer is lowest, and give them a chance to beat that price. You never know… if they want your business, they may come down on their price. The first price they quote is seldom the lowest they'll go.

Then, whichever is lowest on the second go-around, check the closest dealer (if he isn't the lowest) and see if he'll match that price. If two dealers offer the same price, the closest one wins, because it will cost you less to go pick it up.

I did not buy a new one but I have seen many say that they were able to get 20% off of MSRP when buying new.

I assume you have a quote from Chilhowee in Knoxville since you live there. I have shopped with Chilhowee once but decided not to buy a new one. They seemed like very nice folks.

I would ask to see the paperwork before I believed most of those. And remember this is not 2-3 years ago when RVs were not moving. Airstreams are jumping off dealers lots at the moment almost as fast as they can get them. Believe their backlog is around 6 months. Why would any dealer give you a big discount - particularly on a popular model - with conditions like this? My advice is make the best deal you can and if you think you can live with it then do it and don't worry about what someone else claims they got. Not smart to believe these people throwing big discount claims around.

And if you do stay, please don't go into the shower.
