Need a US dealer with the most used units

Hello,

Newbie here. The wife and little one + hound will be setting sail on a full time/working adventure soon enough. Our plan is to travel anywhere in the US we think has the best opportunity to find which used AS we want.

We are pretty set on a 25' FC or International between 2010 to as new as possible. Our goal is to allow ourselves ample time to adventure the Country should we strike out at the first dealer. We also intend to keep an eye on private sales as well.

So, please hit me with all your dealer suggests and the winner will get a batch of the wife's pretzels when we visit you!

Hello StreamRye,

Most dealer websites list their used inventories like ours here in Utah. I doubt it stacks up to some of the more aggressive used AS inventories, but you get the idea.

Hope to see you somewhere out here in the Wild, Wild West...

Regards - Ron

I would check Airstream of NJ (that's New Jersey). They have a huge Airstream selection and probably have what you are looking for. Check with Patrick, as he knows all of their Airstreams quite well.

With the exchange rate being what it is right now have you given any toughts to a Canadian dealer? If you do, Can Am rv in Londo Ontario is where we bought our new unit and they also have quite a few used models.

Interesting, our only caveat for our curtesy parking is for the Parker to provide homemade pretzels.
I provide electric, water, beer and backyard shenanigans.

See you soon...

You don't really need the dealer with the largest inventory, you just need a dealer that has a 25 foot Flying Cloud or International!

I bought two lightly used Airstreams in the the past two years, both three years old at time of purchase. One from a private party and one from a dealer. Both of them appeared on www.rvtrader.com. Set up an account on there and do a saved search with notifications turned on. Then of course here on airstreamclassifieds. Also, there is a site called RVT.com that has a lot as well.

The best advice I can give you is to know what you want, understand the pricing by model year...and be ready to pounce when the right deal pops up...which it will--they always do. Good time of year right now, by the way. Both of mine were October purchases.

I recently had a stroke and went from a happy camper to heading for assisted living. We have a 2016 FC 26 U with 2 air conditioners and full awnings. Less than 2 years old. I also have 2014 Chevy Silverado Z71 with 5.3 engine. Plus 2 3000 Honda Generators that run together and will power both air conditioners and accessories. This will cool the trailer in 90 degree heat in 1/2 hour. Plus everything else to make camping fun and enjoyable. All are in good condition.

Hi

If you look on the web, inventory of used units varies from month to month. A "huge inventory" of used trailers might be five. A typical inventory often is none. The used inventory at most dealers is slanted towards the smaller trailers. Once you take the Sport and Basecamp models out, the huge inventory of five might be an inventory of one.

Yes, this varies with the time of year. Some dealers only do used when they get trade in's. Their inventory will go up in the late spring. Others seem to be happy to sell on consignment. Right now is a good time for inventory at those dealers.

As far as finding a specific used model and year - good luck once you get out of the smaller units and more recent years. Most of the dealers feed on "trade up" customers.

Bob
