Dealer Puffery

A year ago, when I started looking in earnest, a sales guy at Safford told me with a straight face that Airstream corporate forbids dealers from selling at anything under MSRP; that any dealer doing so was in danger of loosing their license to sell the product.


Oh and they also looked at my Mini Cooper at the time and asked "You're towing with THAT?!?" And walked away in the middle of sentence.

Why not get a 30' Flying Cloud? Exact same floor plans, just less "special".

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Trust me I look at them all. It's just hard to find something with the options you want close by enough to go pick up. The more I try to find one, the more I just figure I need to get it on order and wait my turn. LOL

Yep...ordering has advantages. I even talked to Timeless about thier new shell program. Timeless is an "expensive" option but would it be great to lay it out the way I want. I know it would be of the highest quality so if I hit the numbers guess where this guy is shopping!

Until then I still ponder and have to wait a bit more.....ugh.
