ya might wanna expand your dealer circle when searching this go round...

airstreamofarkansas keeps a healthy inventory, sells nationwide and will deliver IF ya ask....

my understanding is they cannot post 'sale' prices nationally BUT will deal on the phone or online.

gene and mike are rock solid, honest to a fault and very competitive with pricing...

and they will NOT weasel out of a deal. the price u agree to IS the price period.

of course they do go out of their way to make the buying experience fun/friendly and relaxing too!

check 'em out, u won't be disappointed...


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Airstream of Arkansas have earned their reputation, Zenflyr. And it is solid.

Fortunately, Sky River (whazzat, some kind of california incense?), has presented you with the sum total of their character. Believe in it and go elsewhere. Let them know why, in this "robust" RV market, they've made a bad business decision.

Geeze, pulling SOB stuff on Airstreamers... schmucks.

Thanks for this and any other info we should be aware of!!!!
Newbie, I am experiencing my first long trip towing anything {about 6000 miles round trip}and all I can say is I have learned that you need enough truck!! We've been alot of miles already and they have been through high montains and long hot interstates. Consider not only the tow capacity but the strength of the engine, suspension and brakes as well as the tranny. pulling our 27'er up big inclines I can see how the trans temp is affected and I'm real glad I have a beast of a truck. The fuel mileage could be better but I feel very secure in how my truck handles my trailer in all aspects. I would suggest not coming up short in the truck department. Good luck.

I think we got around 15% from our dealer - they have MORE than made up the difference between 15% and 19% with OUTSTANDING customer service - we recommend them to anyone in Ohio or the surrounding states.
They are a 2.5 hour drive from us, but we gladly make the trip for the great service.

Part of the difference between list and what you pay is a reserve that the dealer keeps for warranty work in addition to his profit margin.

So, if you buy new from a dealer make SURE you get EVERYTHING taken care of within the warranty period - don't be bashful about having them fix what you may think to be minor or silly items (loose or missing rivets, marred surfaces, ill-fitting items, etc.

Also, spend at least two hours with your dealer on delivery day going over everything there is to know about your new baby - all systems, towing, hook-ups, unhooking, opertion of ALL appliances, winterizing, etc. If possible, video-tape this process for later reference.

Best of luck to you!
