I bought an Airstream from the Fairfield, CA dealer a few years ago in an end of year sale, and needed a place to put it while a pad in my backyard was being constructed. The dealer was willing to accommodate me for up to three months, and would keep it longer for something like $60/month. My pad was finished within the three months, so I didn't have to pay. I think you would be better off doing something like that, since it is helpful to go through the initial hookup, brake adjustment, etc., at the dealer, particularly if you're a newbie. Actually, I feel that any premium I might have paid the Fairfield dealer to buy the Airstream there has been more than repaid through the education they have given me many times over at delivery and afterwards. I recently bought an F-250, and called them for advice regarding any changes I needed to make in my trailer hookup. I started by saying, "My name is Dave McReynolds, and I don't know if you remember, but I have a 23'...." Oh yes, Mr McReynolds, we remember you quite well." (Without a hint of irony).
