That's an extremely nice unit..
We had one on our dealer's lot(I used to work once at an Airstream dealership that has since gone out of business) and, I have to tell you it didn't stay around more than a week or two..But, what I saw of it was very nice~!
Good Luck~!!
ciao

I hope you've heard good news by now!! It is so exciting to go from the wishing and hoping to the "it's mine" stage. Good luck!

Patience Grasshopper...

As the Kung Fu Instructor would say...

There are several reasons they may be delaying, and it is probably better not to display excessive eagerness, which tends to undermine your "my best offer.." speech... Sales Mgr may be hoping someone at show will demand to buy that unit for more, or may be so busy they're not returning messages, or may see what elses is moving at show to decide how many deals to push before month-end, etc... The Karma-pushing is good, and I'll shove some east from Calif (our show was last week, and dealer sold 1 in first 4 hours, then quiet..) for you... GOod luck!

Terry good luck on your purchase, assuming it happens. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

My wife and I bought a new 2005 22ft Safari this past June. We love it. Our two vehicle is a 2001 GMC 1/2 ton p/u 325 ci, 285hp. We get 12.6 mpg not bad, and I don't have the low towing gear. Maybe we.ll see you at one of the rallies in the future. I'm assuming you belong or are going to join the WBCCI.

Good luck,

Charlie M

Thumbs up Karma coming your way....

If the dealer knows what they are doing, they will counter-offer with a LOWER offer from the dealership just because you are so very nice......
And you will pay even LESS!
(Wouldn't that be nice?)
You might try to have a few extras thrown in while you are at it....
Good luck!
