Meh... I like the EB better. Walked through a 2016 27' EB today at Camper Clinic and not sure I like the Black ultraleather in the new EB. Prior years had the tan sunbrella fabric which I like. The Pendelton brown ultraleather looks much nicer. The Pendelton couch by the rear tv extends into the walkway for a wider bed which the EB doesn't do. No D-Rings and the furnature doesn't fold up like the EB. I hope a Serenity plus rear hatch shows up in 2017...

$115,000 is list price. They include dishes. Lol, I'm sure that is worth a couple of thousand.

What was the list price for the same size EB?

I bet the video editing work was done by another and Eric was the merely the salesman promising... "little to no maintenance" while crossing his fingers.

2016 Airstream Pendleton Special Edition

Please do keep us posted. Theory at our house is that dealers can get whatever price they want for the National Parks / Pendleton edition.

I don't think it's worth Classic money but it's a little less, and has a little more standard equipment than Eddie Bauer. They're building 100, that's it, so I suppose it's also intended to bring something new to the showroom. The rear hatch mid-size Airstream is well-received, I doubt we'll see the last of it.

We went and saw it today at Bay Area Airstream. It's more attractive in person for sure. The Pendleton appointments are nice and it is certainly well appointed. With the table installed the rear hatch is just a big window. It does have the feeling of a cabin inside. It is a bit dark though. Although that could have been as much a function of it being inside the warehouse. Go see one and spend a good bit of time inside it before you pull the trigger on one of these. The design is certainly unique. Compared to a new classic, the classic decore may be easier to live with long term. The Pendleton is well done and it is fun.

Good question ... and time will tell.

I don't think it has the cost basis that the Classic does, I think they are charging more because they think they can get it. They think they can get it because the limited run creates a scarcity that has value today.

Whether or not it turns out to be worth it to today's buyers depends upon whether or not the scarcity is reflected in higher resale prices in the future. There are examples of this happening: the Winick Bambi for one, and the Basecamp is starting to sell for more now than it did new.

Time will tell.

Hey guys, thinking about making a move on a Pendleton. MSRP is $120K.

I've never bought an RV before, let alone an Airstream. For those that are experienced, what would you come in at in for the initial offer? Would $112K be considered low-ball?

I wonder how the demand will go, it's nearing Classic pricing but they promise only 100 to be built. Good bet they will offer another rear hatch model to follow.

They will trip over themselves snapping up your $112K cash offer; I would start well under $100k.

Wow, well under $100K really? I know the "standard" RV industry works off a silly 20-35% below MSRP scheme, but I didn't know Airstream fell into the same range.

Anyone else have any thoughts?
