JD Sanders

We bought our 34 ft. at JD Sanders. My husband had no complaints. I was a bit fussy, but in the end they did what they needed to do to seal the deal. My husband was very impressed with the service department and body shop. I do not anticipate ever getting another AS.......but if we did, I am sure my husband would drive the 4 hours back to JD Sanders.

Tampa RV ONE (formerly Bates RV)

OK, let me give some first hand knowledge. Bates is gone, new owner is RV ONE ongoing by Tampa RV. They have 5 locations. Albany, Buffalo, Orlando somewhere in Iowa and now TAMPA. They have retained much of the Bates Staff, Have a lot of Airstream stock, presently building new building for Airstream service and seem quite dedicated to Airstream. They will be at Alumna Flamingo and at the Tampa RV show this coming week. I just traded in my 2005 Classic and put in an order for a 2015 Classic 31'. FYI they need used inventory and gave me a very good deal on my trade. Very Professional staff and I was quite confident after meeting new owners.

Was there in the past hour. Several units in stock.... no parts no service until next month.
Met one of the new owners.... very nice!
Looks like good things on the way!
Gone are the remnants of the former owner. Lots of landscaping and modernizing going on.

Best wishes!

Meet the new owners at the Tampa show and was VERY pleased with them. They have just bought Bates and I feel still working out everything. I will be ready to buy in 1 year and will use them. Good people with knowledge of the Airstream product. I told them it will be a year but still sat us down to talk about what we wanted and put us on there e mail list. I feel after the dust settles they will be giving the big locations a run for there money. I hope.

I wonder if Aorstream ranch will be taken down now that Mr. Bates no longer owns the dealership. Hillsborough County has been fighting him for some to take it down.

We had a very good experience w Sanders for our current purchase also. They were very accommodating.
We had been to Bates several years ago but bought elsewhere. No particular reason except they did not have what we wanted at that time.
