20% off list for a 2015 at this time of the year is about as good as it gets. If it's the trailer model you want, grab it!

I just bought mine from Airstream NW in PDX (well in Sep) and I got 17.5% off, so if you are getting 20% you have nailed it. Go bite their hand off

Both you and Mefly2 misunderstood the comment by Atheness as it meant they are getting almost 20% quoted on 2014's, not the practically new 2015's with ducted air.

Hence the additional question made about waiting until 2016's come out to then buy a discounted 2015, roughly a year from now.

But then maybe AS will finally start building with better core materials and not steel frames with plywood and particle board.... I'm joking of course, that will never happen

JWP, please go back and reread Atheness' posts, he states pretty clearly that he is being quoted 20% off list for a 2015 unit, not a 2014. As for waiting until next year to get an even better price on a 2015 at year end, well, that's certainly true, but if he waited until 2017 he'd get an even better deal on a used 2015, and if he waited until 2019, well, then he'd get a real good deal.

And of course if you wait the anticipated savings will be gone since the price goes up every year.

Be sure to check the accessories your discounted AS includes.

While I would like to believe that, it isn't what he wrote. He did say "new" but new does not mean 2015 vs 2014.

Maybe he can tell us what he meant

Look at the headline on his first post and also the text of his second post in the thread. I did not find either the least bit ambiguous. He is definitely considering a 2015 and not a 2014.

JWP-

Is this unclear to you? It is the title of this thread followed by his various postings ... give us a break! What have you bought??

Why would I give you a break? You're being a jerk.

Oh, I see, you're saying that threads always stay exactly on track with the title and never change into some other idea or direction.

Not sure why you ask me what I've "bought". I have negotiated many new vehicle purchases in the $70k - $150k range so I found it surprising to hear of 18% discounts on the newest year model only a few months into production.

Anything you are saying is 100% speculation. The only definitely answer can come from the OP.

Not sure the issue here, JWP?? You obviously are an "expert" in all things....don't let any of us "non-experts" get to you! Let us know when you finally get an AS.
By the way, I got 22% 6 months into production earlier this year!

..."all things" ? No, not at all, but I am a skeptic. I just prefer to hear info directly from the person on the deal, not what others think it might be or have found themselves. I have not questioned what you or others got for discounts, just specifically the starter of this thread.

I didn't realize you all were experts. Glad to hear it. Now I can take what you say as gospel without any question or variance.

He did not quite say that, but I agree it was implied by way of the thread title. The confusion for me came from the fact that there are obviously still "new" 2014 models and the post about waiting until 2016 to get a 2015 could have implied wanting 2015 but not until a big discount were available.

To me a thread title does not implicitly connect to the rest of the content as it invariably changes in threads about such things.

While you all may believe it 100%, it was not 100% specifically stated.

On a separate issue, none of you actually "know" what the OP knows. It would have been nice to just hear from them regardless of the results.

It seems this time of year the deeper discounts make sense because next spring people will be thinking of the next "new" models.

Purchase new 2015 FC 25'..best price?

One point to remember is some dealers have added fees, ADM, DOC, and other euphemisms for adding to the price of an item. As I understand it, the final price should be the actual price of the unit (with the 20% discount), transportation from JC, taxes, and tag. The addition of any other fees is simply to increase dealer profit.
One method to counter the additional fee gimmick is to calculate the price based on the above and come to a final "out the door" price agreed upon by both parties prior to any paper work.

And one more thing, factory options not officially available may be negotiated when one orders a unit to be built, but this may affect the discount.
