The 30' FB Flying Cloud Bunk has a couch directly across from the dinette.

They charge junk fees because people keep paying them. It is charity.

We purchased a used 2013 30' International from a private seller / first owner. At the time, it was almost 5 years old. For us, it turned out to be a great decision, but at the time, we didn't really know that. I agree that used 1-owner, 2 to 4 years, is probably the best way to go, with purchase from the owner. It may take you longer to find what you want, but it will be worth it in the long run.

Some AS dealers offer an additional warranty that covers everything...a/c, frig, etc. and will give additional 15% range discount. Good AS dealers are invested in their customers and provide ongoing resource. There are many issues, often subtle, which they recognize and know, which can head off problems. On our third, and first brand new, GO TO AN AS DEALER and bargain. We bought an 82k sticker price trailer, serviced out ready to roll, with the additional warranty and several comps, for about 71K cash. PLUS we get an ongoing discount on any supplies, equipment, or purchases. We are active in WBCCI and lead caravans and our view is the strong majority thought. Remember the secondary resale market is best for strong condition unrestored rigs. Travel safely. J.

An add-on warrantee that covers everythng, I'd have to see that in person...my 45yr service experience 'sez... impossible.
I know of less than a dozen in the auto field that we used that were useful, NONE cover everything.
Any warrantee not offered by the manufacturer
is a crap shoot to say the least...🤔
My advise...whatever the 'warrantee' costs, put the money in an AS bank account and use it for upgrades and repairs as needed.

I would never buy new again, if I bought it would be "gently used" no more than 3yrs old.
Patience required.👍

If this is the unit of your dreams offer them what you are willing to pay plus taxes if it passes your inspection. But do not let them add on charges above your offer. Their asking price should already include their prep charges etc. The same applies to Hunter Dad's unit

Thanks, but I know that a used Classic will be more than we want to spend. Good luck to you!

We definitely backed away from this sale, even though they've continued to call and try to persuade me ; )

I know I previously said no to the FC30 bunk, mainly b/c of the bathroom situation. But after looking at SOB's, we are realizing that an all in one is much more common, so we need to adjust our priorities. I noticed that PPL in Houston has a 2015 FC30 bunk. Any thoughts on this? We are about 4 hours away, and have family and friends there, so we could definitely go look at it much easier. I was actually hoping to find someone on this forum to check it out. No one that we know in Houston has experience with Airstreams, or even travel trailers for that matter. Assuming it is in good condition, what do you think would be a good offer for something that is 4+ years old?
