We drone from Houston to Tampa for our23FC.. RV1 was good to us. The Tec that got her ready was awesome. We were brand new to camping. He told us everything we needed and sent us to Camping World. He spent a lot of time with us. Our sales person is no longer there.
I would consider Colonial in NJ though. Real high volume.
I would NOT go to Holiday World in Katy.

Wish we would have know this a couple weeks ago. They have a 2016 that they are darn near giving away. We decided to drive 900 miles south for a 2017 and got burned! Had to drive 900 miles home empty handed. Almost went to Safford for the 2016.

We got our 23FB up in Quad Cities IA. I do not recommend that dealer. It's a sister dealer to a Chicago dealer. The guys in IA did not know much about AS. But we saved over $7K buying from them. I would have preferred to buy locally, but that's just too big of a price dif to justify it.

Internet Buying

After I had decided what model to buy, I started calling all of the dealers within a two day drive. Talked to the internet sales person and made my offer. If they wouldn't play, I'd move on to save both of us our time. Finally reached a sales person who said 'that could work'. After a few days negotiating the add ons (hitch, brake controller, etc), we closed the deal over the phone and I picked it up a few weeks later when convenient.

I would have preferred to buy local but they weren't dealing so move on I did.

I just had some routine maintenance work at Sutton RV, while on the west coast, and found them easy to deal with, straightforward, capable, and honest.

Our AS also came from Sutton. Very good experience according to our son, who was the buyer at the time.

Our 2007 was in super shape and only had one prior owner.

Talk to the dealer's final decision maker, not a salesperson. You should expect at least 12-15% off MSRP.

Talk to Airstream owners about the quality of service at prospective dealerships. This can be huge.

Remember, most trade-ins will be based on NADA wholesale, which is what the banks will loan the dealer to pay you for your Airstream. The dealer will make a bundle on your trade-in. A reputable dealership may give you more, bankrolling the difference itself. You might want to talk trade-in once you have agreed on price to avoid a sliding scale between price and trade-in.

Looking for Airstream Dealer

Rv One in Florida is who I bought from and had a good experience. Price was great, processing paper was good, as was the walkthrough. Follow up, not so much, but I didn't really need it. I don't plan to drive there for service, so for what I got out of them, a great trailer at a great price, I am happy with the experience.

I can second this, Eric at Haydocy. We picked up our 2017 Classic and when I got her home and double checked everything found an issue. Called them, they apologized, made an after sale concession and asked me to bring the unit back. I was satisfied with the sales process and after sale performance. The tech they have Joe does nice work and even answered a question I had that the factory had a tough time answering.

Looking for Airstream Dealer

Bayer RV in Dublin, Texas was wonderful to us! Our salesman, Steve Woods, was very kind and professional. We were very pleased with the price and the process. We ordered a 2016 27FB International Signature and received it ahead of schedule. Steve even helped us coordinate a visit to the factory in Jackson Center, OH to see our new trailer on the assembly line. We couldn't have been more pleased with this dealership and our salesman. The drive from Houston was totally worth it. Highly recommend!
