Welcome!

Your best bet will be Colonial since your in NJ. Take your time and enjoy shopping for your new AS, I'd spend some time in the 27' and the 28' and get a feel for both. Also go over it with a fine toothed comb before delivery and be very picky for the next two years on warranty issues. If your buying new you might as well have everything perfect. . Have fun and keep us posted.

Welcome to the forum! I'm sure you will enjoy the new 'stream...I'm typing this from the sofa of our 34' during a weekend outing!

Get out and camp...

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard

Another vote for Colonial, and take your time....if you can

Check EVERYTHING....ask questions, take your camera, take notes while shopping, it's hard to remember all the features of all the different models.
Plan on camping overnight on the dealers lot, with and without hook-ups.
Make some Airstream Coffee, have some lunch before leaving.
Don't be skeered 'ta deal.

And oh yeah....ask more questions and take more notes.

Good people at Colonial, you should enjoy the experience.

Sweet Streams.

Welcome to the forums. And good luck with your shopping.

I agree with blmitch, you can expect to have warranty issues, we all have had them. Be picky and persistent during the warranty period. Eventually, the bugs will be worked out.

Welcome! There are lots of options for you. If you want new or newer a 23 or 25' would be a good fit, if you need more space a 27' would be great also. If your looking for vintage there are lots out there, I love the 70s versions. Take your time and ask lots of questions, we love to help.
welcome and have fun with your search.
