Thumbs up Hi

Hey everyone, Just wanted to say hi and tell ya'll we really like your forum here. Been a lurker for a while, decided to join after spending so much time watching and visiting the forum & AS dealers in VA, TN & NC. We think we're gonna get one, this year, just hadn't pinned one down yet.
Got a few prices, actually we were getting ready to make an offer on a 28 International Signature model, and the sales consultant came out and said it just sold, while we were looking at it.
So then we moved to another International and was looking it over, and it sold ! Two in the same day while we were at the dealer.
They said they would order us one just like it, but that's a wait to July, I think he said. They were ordering it anyhow to have on the lot.
So we went looking elsewhere. We have a SOB trailer now, an 07' and are wanting to upgrade. No hurry, we have to sell ours, which shouldn't be too hard, as I am not pricing to make a killing. Price-ing to MOVE.
Large chunk of change, but the AS has hooked us. We wanted an AS back in 07 but were 'green' and new to the Travel trailer scene. We think we have the experience now, LOL
Actually went and looked at some today, but the dealer was, shall we say, 'Very, very proud of them'. so they still have them.
Anyhoo, thanks for all the information guys, we so appreciate it.
Maybe sometime this summer I can say we bought one, just not yet.
Have a good one!

Welcome! Airstreams are selling well this year, and dealers are generally happy.. There are several with really large inventories and attractive internet pricing, so you might consider looking as far away as New Jersey (colonial) or other larger dealers if you really want a particular new model.. In great scheme of things, mileage to pick it up won't seem significant in 6 months...

Agreed, though you will definitely be happier if you have an AS dealer within reasonable driving distance who can handle the inevitable warranty issues. We love our 2014 27FB International Signature, but we've had it back to the dealer on three separate occasions thus far for minor warranty work. We're very pleased that they are less than an hour away from us and that they have provided good service.

OTOH, if we weren't under warranty, I'd be perfectly willing to use any good RV mechanic for most things, as RVs are fundamentally the same when it comes to most internal systems. However, if you're asking them to fix a leak, otherwise work on the skin, fix long-term problems resulting from previous leaks or access systems that require opening up the belly pan, differences once again emerge and it probably becomes important to find someone who knows Airstreams vs. an average SOB.

Oh, and welcome. I hope you find the Airstream of your dreams!

Any dealer is obligated to honor warranty claims, whether they sold you trailer or not.. Doesn't mean they will all do so with equal enthusiasm, but a threat to complain to Ohio will usually bring better responses.. What dealers really enjoy is post-warranty service and support..
Good rule of thumb is that if something actually made in Airstream factory (like body shell, cabinets, plumbing lines or wiring), then it should go to a dealer or authorized service shop for repairs. If it was purchased by Airstream (like stove or A/C or water heater..) it is OK to take them to any competent RV repair facility..
