How competitive will they be with pricing?
Unfortunately, two southern California dealers have recently closed up shop.

Economy, reputation, dissatisfied customers?????

One for the former and the other for the later, or so some posts have stated.

None the less, there is only one dealer left in southern California, and he has never been competitive, again as some stories go. High overhead.

With this economy keep searching, SW came highly recommended and they were not pushy. If you find a deal they may match it and they are the best choice. I wanted vintage and husband wanted new. Guess who won?? We love our gal and soon to be on the road. For service no one is meticulous maybe Ewe has good reviews he is in Orange but I am not sure if he is an authorized dealer. C and G are honest but a drive when you have a repair that needs attentiion again. also at 90 dollars a hour better to do as much as you can yourself. this forum is fantastic and the members are the nicest people you will find.

Just read today that Holland Motors in San Diego will be selling Airstreams. It will be nice to have a couple of places in So. Cal. to look at the new ones. I wish them well.

Service, well that takes years to learn. I'll stick with Rod at C&G if my wife talks me into buying a new trailer.

We purchased our A/S at Southwest Coaches. Very easy to deal with and friendly. They even game me tickets to an Angels game. It was an easy process, and like the other dealers at Travel Land they didn't sit out side like predators.

I bought my 17ft AS Safari Sport at Southwest Coaches in Irvine, Orange County and have nothing but great things to say about the sales experience there. Bo Watson was a pleasure to deal with and let me wander around and see what I liked and was available to answer any questions I had. When I had made up my mind (with no sales pressuring) he assisted me through the process and I got way more extra's thrown in as well as offering me storage at the facility for 3 months until I found a suitable storage facility near my home.I will recommend them without hesitation.
I found the service department not as great , but since CG trailer works is close to where I live, I take my AS there in any case. CG are definitely the experts when it comes to sorting out ANY problems and they are extremely pleasant and helpfull people to deal with. Best of luck with your purchase of your new Airstream. I'm already considering a bigger model!

Just Looking!

Hi, Southwest Coaches is a great place to look at Airstreams; And Bo is a great guy. When it came time to make an actual purchase, we bought from George Sutton RV in Eugene, Oregon. And made a vacation out of our trip home. We were unable to make a proper deal anywhere in California. And the California no sales tax deal is active again. It was stopped right after we bought our trailer and then re-activated about two years later. This rule could save you a few pennies, It saved us some coins.

It really does not matter where you buy as all the local Service Depts are so so.

So what to do about service? most folks go to C&G in Bellflower which is an Airstream service center. They don't sell trailers they just fix them under warranty. After warranty you can keep going there or to Inland RV which does not do sales either. Both places know their Airstreams and have qualified techs. It's just which one you prefer.

So buy as low as you can and don't worry about their service Dept.

Let this be your invitation to all Calstreamers events too. No membership, rules or dues. Kids and pets welcome.

Does anyone know if Bo is still at South West? We're going down there in a couple of weeks. They should have a 2010 20 foot Flying Cloud delivered by then. What sort of price reduction should we expect?

hello, i'm in socal too and considering buying new... traveland is within my reach and seems the only local option, it would be nice to know what discounts they are giving these days, it seems there is wiggle room.

it probably helps to come prepared, know what you want...

what is the no-sales tax rule?
also can i save some $$$ buy picking up at factory instead of some delivery charges in the thousands? (good excuse for the first trip too...)

thanks!

Hi, the no sales tax rule requires a purchase out of the state of California and your trailer must stay out of state for 91 days or more. By doing this, California won't charge sales tax, but they will still try, and Oregon doesn't have sales tax. As for the picking up at the factory, I can't answer that one. You will still have to buy it at a dealer.

JDL --

We just experienced several leaks in our 2008 International during a torrential downpour in Buellton last night, so we're looking to get it fixed pronto.

There are only two names that come up in SoCal: C&G and Inland RV.

If you don't mind me asking, what went wrong with C&G?
