Rivet My next trailer........

I'm in love with the Safari Bunk house 30BB baby!!!!

This traier is layed out for kids!! My three took right to it. If I hit the Lotto I just may be traiding in the 67 for an 04 30BB.

Spent some time at the Airstream dealer in Wentzville MO, where they had one on the floor.

I've seen this trailer twice now. Once at the RV show in St. Louis and also at Bill Thomas' showroom. It has some interesting features. I like the entertainment system. I'm not sure I like the 'master' bedroom up front. The bunks are pretty nice, especially for kids.

Go ahead. You can get it in time for the rally in June!

Here are a few more pictures from the St. Louis RV show.

Thumbs up Great looking coach

I haven't seen any of the 04's in person.
Is that the same floor plan as this 30' Safari VIRTUAL TOUR?

Interesting. I looked at this when Jack posted pics of this coach. I do like the coach, but I am unsure if I care for the bed in front and the bunk. I do like the bathroom space...much improved compared to the similar 19' Bambi and 25' Safari SS.

One thing that I noticed was that freight was $256. Although low for the size, most of the freight charges on the actual Airstream stickers had freight costing way less. I am wondering, since this looks like a dealer made sticker, if there is some fluff being built in.....

I don't know Eric. I was surprised because in 2001 my Safari from the same dealer had a delivery cost of $75, which was unusually cheap. The delivery from the same dealer on the Classic was $256. I wonder if delivery varies by location or who the transport is?

I figure that your right on the "Fluf" built in on the sticker. I wouldn't pay the extra for the sound systems, but the walkie talkie set up is nice. I was also thinking that by the time the Ambassador is ready for a new owner there should be some used 30BB's on the market at a little better price.

Jack and Eric.

About that "delivery" charge: I was curious about that when I was shopping for my CCD, does a dealer that is closer to Jackson Center get charged less than a dealer in CA? I think the answer is no. Airstream has a fixed delivery charge that is somewhere under $200.00 whether you are in Piqua or Eugene. This makes it possible for all the dealers to stay competetive. This is what I learned from Mac, the very nice fellow at Bill Thomas in St. L.

As far as a mark up, who knows, but I do know that the dealer needs to make some rent money too, which is why these things are somewhat negotiable.
