Tanks

Nangoff, do you mean you went to a grey and black tank? Also do you have problems with the sliding doors opening while driving? I used heavy coated wire to loop through mine to solve problem. Darrell

We had sliding doors on the bathroom cabinet in our '01 Safari. I cut small dowel rods that fit in the track that would prevent the doors from sliding while traveling.

Dealing for an Airstream

We bought a new 2005 Safari LS 25' FB two months ago. We got 22 percent off list from Sanders Airstream in Alachua, Florida. Ours was a left over '05, so your 19 percent on an '07 sounds pretty good.

Darrell and gentlemen. I went to Home Depot and bought a piece of the foam type insulation that they put around pipes and cut 2" pieces of it and stuck in in the sliding glass holes. Haven't lost a "door" since then and they are easy to take in and out.

Darrell, yes, replaced the combo tank with individual black and grey tanks for ~$850 at the factory.

Gus's message proves the point...

A dealer staring at leftover 30' or longer is going to start crying eventually, and will sell below cost to make it vanish... Flooring companies (dealer inventory finance companies..) typically charge 1% per month for inventory they have to carry past "free" flooring period, which is often 60 to 120 days... That is one reason very few dealers will ever stock a 34' "Classic Limited" in 2007, and Airstream indicated at Salem they weren't discontinued, but would be special orders mostly..

With premium gas at $3.39 here and diesel at $3.20, driving a long way to get your trailer might be a bad deal also, if you didn't save a lot!

Fewer and fewer potential buyers will have a truck that can handle 30' trailers and larger... Airstream is putting development efforts into range from 19' to 25', figuring those have more potential tow vehicles around...

moosetags? 2005 FB?? I have been trying to get a handle on these models produced at the end of the 2005 model year. Does your Safari have a suicide door or the hinge at the front? Thanks!

I bet the 19' would whet our appetite for a 22 or bigger, but we didn't want to have to get a new truck too. Our little Avalanche 1500 isn't big enough to handle the bigger AS's. One step at a time.
Your Avalanche will handle a 22' Airstream, but will be getting marginal at a 25 footer.

Some really good points brought forth in this thread, like looking for a used one, lots of folks do buy small and move up fast. There may a great deal out there on a 19' or 22' slightly used trailer.
