How can they sell for 78% of the MSRP?

Clearly the wholesale price must be no more than 70% of MSRP, and more likely 60% of MSRP.

From the ongoing QC issues, maybe the wholesale cost is closer to 50%.

That would help explain the selection of so many inexpensive parts like the plastic catches, single stage converter/ battery cooker, really cheap solid state transfer switches for the front power inlet and linoleum flooring so thin it has one side (the dinette table leg wore a hole through our 2015 23D International Serenity flooring in under two thousand miles).

How can a $140,000+ Classic be shipped after the last Airstream quality control inspection and go through a dealership pre-delivery inspection and still have the main door misaligned? Misaligned main doors happens on the less expensive models as well.

With a lot of effort, most of us get the kinks worked out over time - maybe that is called the Rite of Passage to be an official Airstream owner.

Bought the trailer yesterday and here is where we landed. 2016 FC 20'
We got 100w solar panels included on and our total (with solar) was 16% from listed price.
If I take their listed solar price form the the total ($1650) we got 19% from listed price.
They also threw in some starter kit with hoses and chocks and Tp and bunches of other things to get us down the road. And supposedly they will fill the propane at no charge either. But we haven't picked it up yet so will see what actually happens with that.

Thanks all for the input and help!!

You did great. More important, you have joined a community of enthusiasts who will generously help you with all manner of things. We don't agree on everything (tires,hitches,tow vehicles...) but, generally, we all agree that there is no finer place on earth than under your awning, cool drink of your choice in hand, as the sun sets.

Acute Aluminitis. No cure, but the symptoms are pretty sweet.

Got 22% off our new 2016

We went online, got quotes from RVOne, they have locations all over the US. Got 28% off list price, being made in Ohio as we speak. Every model was at that discount.

Good luck, and look at the International Signatures we went with that one.

Understilts, congratulations and welcome....well... n2916s said it all above.

Don't forget the 20 footers thread. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516...127845-42.html

I stumbled on to it after we purchased and enjoyed the reading from page 1... the enthusiasm etc. as we had just gone thru it, but being a trailer newbie, it truly accelerated my understanding of the systems, their function, maintenance and repair.

Happy Trails

Bob

Just curious, since we are not shopping for an Airstream, but was it 22% (possibly believable) or 28% (never heard of a discount that large . . . ever).?

I went to their web site (http://rvone.com/) selected a couple of different locations and built a couple of quotes on various models and only got MSRP (i.e. a 0% discount).

Colonial quoted me a figure that was about 15%, but I got it elsewhere (in-stock) for 22.3% off (no negotiating).

Both URLs seem to be for the same company.

Wasn't brand new but a 2015 FC20 listed at 52K paid 44K with Equalizer hitch installed and a Tekonsha P3 brake controller.

First travel trailer we've owned to house us for a month on our move back to Alaska and possibly most of the summer until our tenants move out of one of our condos in Alaska. We can't wait to get back to the "Great Land!"

The wife and I are considering an 23FB either FC or IC. Good to know that +20% is the target point.
