Safford doesn't carry a full inventory like Colonial does. I bought my CCD from Colonial for that reason. If I had more time, I would have ordered from Safford though. FYI, Colonial has only been selling Airstreams for about 4 years.
Almost immediately after I posted, I read the thread from the 1992 Airstream Life... and there was Safford RV. I've been to their dealership and they sell a helluva lot of SOB's - Airstream seems to be a sideline with them. The salesman I got didn't know that much about them.

Hmmmm, The Strange World of Airstream Sales

If you want a 25ft FB SE almost all dealers are selling at MSRP $56K+, but Safford RV will make a deal right now if anyone is interested... under $49K.

Now HERE's the odd one, I could get a 28 CCD from Colonial that was made before the price increase on a special deal for just over $52K........ Hmmm a 28 for less than a 25...... it just gets odder and odder. And I just bought.

Sh***** how did THAT happen.

Tin Lizzie....

Now everyone help me name the new one.

Paula did you order a 28'? I thought you were just thinking of going bigger. Congrats from me too!
