I'm lucky in that my dealer is within 35 miles of my home. When I made my original deal on my first Airstream, I found a dealer in Ohio that offered it to me at a savings of $380. I agonized on this a bit but ended up buying from my local dealer at the higher price.
My dealer has excellent prep and service, and while I've posted this elsewhere it bears repeating. One of our unit members at an International a few years back had a stroke. The dealer had his son drive the members tow vehicle and trailer back to St. Louis. When the member offered to reimburse the dealer, he noted back that there would be no charge since "we are family". That's the kind of folks I want to do business with.
