Good Evening!! Having lurked here for a couple of weeks, it's time for me to come out.
The wife and I are in the market for an AS
. We're debating new v used (I have studied the forums), and I have no issue buying a clean used vehicle.
I intend to share the news on the way, but this last weekend's shopping trip was epic.
We went to a local (to me) Airstream dealer on Saturday, told the sales guy quite categorically we were looking, not buying...
He didn't listen too well. So we left. Over dinner, we talked about what we liked, what we didn't etc and settled on the FC / Int/ Globetrotter models. So, on Sunday, we go back to see all the models and begin shopping dealers/online etc. Long long story short, we bump into the sales guy again (imagine that) and I asked him casually what pricing is. like : "we don't come off more than $3k" I was dying inside. So we meander a bit and he asks me what it would take to sign me up. Once again I tell him we're not buying. We go into the office and he starts to write me up, and brings in his 'Sales Manager (the Finance Director) who proceeds to tell me as we're not purchasing TODAY, he can't give me a price. I grab my keys and tell the Mrs we're leaving. He immediately shouts "I'll give you $10k off right now if you sign right now..."
I respectfully said 'no' and out we walked. (:37 am this morning I get a text from the sales man..... I couldn't stop laughing. Needless to say we're still shopping
