Thank you moderators
At some point a buyer has to quit obsessing over every cent that might be left on the table (especially on a 25% off deal) and buy the damn thing. Oh wait, then it becomes ‘can I beat 5.9% financing....’.

That would be a good guess IMO.

This "Community Rules" link is at the bottom of every page here:

https://www.airforums.com/forums/mis...ork&page=rules

In particular, the "Be Courteous" bullet point is a good read IMO.

Further . . . "The Argue Thread" permits some some good-natured arguing in the Off Topic Forum:

Happy Trails!

So did OP actually pull the trigger? Over 150 comments on his situation in two different threads. I’ll admit, i was poking the bear at the end of the other thread. Still curious if it worked out for him.

How about 4.25 APR?

Yea a couple people went way off track critiquing the idea of financing and tossing out false numbers that confused the issues....Never got a good direct answer which was odd based on all the "experts" chiming in...

Anyways... I did my numbers once again and contacted the dealer that I thought we were too far apart. last I spoke with them they were firm on not budging one inch.

Guys claiming 844 credit score could only get 5.99APR so I figured 5.75 as good as I could expect.

Once I backed out they worked the deal at 28% off MSRP and dropped a 4.25 apr rate on me!

Now I feel kinda foolish if I back out but I had one foot out the door.... Will figure it this weekend..

Thanks!

Airstream‘s in my opinion are going to continue to go up in price significantly. Buying now is going to be less costly. It sounds like you negotiated an excellent price. Congratulations on your new Airsteam. Safe travels and God bless !

Gotta decide like now and too spun out excited and confused! Sound like a great deal!

I just have to decide upon refundable deposit and final decide in 2 days....

IS this something I'm likely to see again? 25% off....Should I haggle for more off.... what's a fair offer!

Does this happen each year where there are such deep discounts or is this exceptional? I was going to wait till Fall and grab a deal on a 2020 but this one popped up!

Thanks!

It’s a good end of year price. Hard to do that well mid year. Most mid year prices are between 25% and 20% depending on model.

Too many ducks to line up and they move around...

Thanks for your help and sorry I let things get out of hand on the other thread!
