Hi

I think it's fair to guess that most folks who do a trade in are "moving up" in the market. It will always be an 80/20 sort of thing, nothing like this is true 100% of the time. For most, a brand like Airstream is a move up, even on a used trailer. For the folks that bought a near death used SOB, just about anything would be a move up.

My guess is that the worst of the worst will go back to their 2018 prices first. The rest of the used market may well stay pretty crazy for a while. As long as it does, the new stuff will keep flying off the dealer's lots.

All of this is purely a guess. It's based on what folks are saying they will do and saying they like. The real question is always "how long will they back that up with cash?". ( I'd love to go on a space trip .... hmmm ...$28M ... not so much ... )

Supply chain issues.

I am retiring from the military in July 2022 then selling my house to go on life adventure with my wife and two kids (2 and 5 yo). I will be on this forum for the next year trying to learn as much as I can. Thank you all for the great posts and help.

Pleasure chatting with you all.

Congrats and welcome to the forum! Out of curiosity, which dealer did you purchase from? I purchased my next AS from the Montreal dealer last Spring and was quoted an 8-month wait time. Over a year seems long but then again, I realize all sorts of components are in short supply across many industries right now.

Hi,

I ordered my Airstream from the London On dealer, with the accessories ( solar, AGM batt, hitch and awnings) I was saving more than 6K by going with them. When I talked with the Mtl dealer he could not match the price but their timelines were shorter. Mtl Could deliver in May/ June 2022.

Thanks. Consistent with my experience as far as timelines are concerned. My next AS is coming from the MTL dealer. They were faster by about 3 months. Should get it late Summer.

Its the one that can tow over 10,000 lbs I hope, the Airstream you want is over 8,000lbs loaded, I bring this up because I went through this myself
