Q?

Why are Airstreams so expensive?

A.

Airstream travel trailers are a bit more, but as the saying goes "You get what you pay for". People that shop for quality understand the difference. For example you probably wouldn't walk into a Porsche or Mercedes dealer and ask why they cost so much. Airstream has been the top of the line trailer since 1931, built to last and tested rigorously to maintain our high reputation. The statistic that stands out most for me when talking about the durability of our trailers is that since the company began, of all the trailers we have sold over 72% are still being used and on the road today. Let's not forget the resale value is unrivaled in the industry so they make a great investment.

Q?

Do you rent Airstreams?

A.

Unfortunately not. I work for a sales dealership so the only way to try it is to buy it. We do rent out Ford F-150's though if you don't have a pull vehicle. We also have storage for $85 a month so for you city dwellers that don't have the space or a truck we've got you covered.

Q?

Does Airstream make 5th Wheels or have slide outs?

A.

Nope and nope. That's just not what we do. 5th Wheels are big and bulky, slide outs can get leaks and have maintenance issues, we're not about that. Airstreams are much wider than people think though and have spacious layouts. Please schedule a viewing and see them in person.

Q?

What do all the names mean with Airstream models?

A.

This is where people get confused a lot. Just what is the difference between a Flying Cloud and an International Serenity? What's a Globetrotter or Classic? The names mostly have to do with the decor trim level inside. For example you can get a 25 ft Rear bed in Flying Cloud, Intl. Signature and Intl. Serenity. The layout is exactly the same but the Internationals will have an upgraded trim package including Corian Counters and power awning. Classic is our top of the line and only comes in two sizes and then there is the special edition models like Tommy Bahama that are in a class of their own. Visit the model pages to learn more.

Q?

Can we finance an Airstream?

A.

Yes! We do up to 20 year loans with the banks we work with. Payments look similar to a car loan. Rates vary depending on credit of course but typically fall between 5-6% with RV's. These are simple interest loans and can be paid off early without penalty. Down payments can be between 10-20% down on a typical loan but that's up to you. Contact me if you're interested and I'll link you to our credit app where we only do a soft check to see what we can do.

Q?

Can I use an Airstream in cold weather?

A.

Yes you can. The holding tanks are heated as long as you keep your propane heater on inside. You can travel and camp in snow, just keep the heat on! Airstreams are insulated so you will stay nice and warm, don't worry and have fun.

Q?

Do I have to own a truck to be able to pull an Airstream?

A.

No you don't. Lots of mid size SUV's have the power to pull trailers. Airstreams are lightweight and many people are surprised that they can pull with their vehicle. Most car makers have a vehicle that can pull so just do your research or contact me and I can give some suggestions. One big misconception is that Suburu can pull trailers, but most if not all can't. Your vehicle needs to be able to pull at least 3,500 lbs for the smallest of our models. I would say you need a truck for 25 ft and above.
