Just sent a message to BullettBob. You'd think they would have some type of national search for these things. Trying to locate using FR search has a real restriction on mileage. Wife wants a new floorplan, and no way I'm buying another one until she spends time in it and is sure it's what she wants. All of our closest dealers seem to have moved to the Vengeance line so no Thunderbolts to look at. We have considered a 415,420, 425. Just can't get the general away from all of the counter space in a 380. I'm in same boat as SYE posted- willing to trade but not going to take $30,000 for a 3 year old $58,000 rig. Since you said you were looking at other mfgs.- one I've considered is the Seismics from Jayco. Their rear baths have tubs/showers in them making it a full 2 bath instead of 1-1/2. Not sure we'd ever use it, but maybe for kids. They seem pretty close pricewise but they are pretty heavy. Interiors seem to be about equal to XLR's. Owned 1 Keystone rig- a Raptor, long story, but NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER again!

Jayco, and Raptor have both gone to light colored flooring, and my wife detests it. Kinda feel the same, looks to "supermarket" like now. I think we've decided on an XLR, and now deciding between the 375, 415 or the 425. 415 and 375 have good counter space, but the 425 has its benefits too.

I've found good luck using rv trader online. Easy to search state by state.

I here ya about keeping wife happy. Not only does mine want the counter top room, she likes the extra seating in the 380s too. They had a 415 and a 420 at the last show we went to and she said she "could live with the 415" if she had too. weight was too much for me so I stopped looking at them. Now I found a 425 2 hours from home and the guy tells me factory weight is less than 15,000. Hope to go look at it Saturday. I check RV Trader too, but a lot of smaller dealers don't bother going on there. Had some down time at work last night so I went to the FR site and put in a bunch of different zip codes for major cities all up and down east coast. Found a lot more rigs doing it that way, some dealers only had 1 Thunderbolt in stock.

Hello, 1st post here. That was my favorite one at national rv too but we got nowhere near that price. Do you have that in writing anywhere? I'd love to go back with that piece of information. Thanks

Here is what Norm wrote in the email. Hello the unit we have in sock is 59990 plus tax *and the demo unit sold.* We are not at this time ordering any units until we clear out current inventory. We can order a 2017 special if you prefer let me know if you have any other questions Thanks Norm*

Norman,

*

I wanted to know what our price was on your stock # 159507, also is this a Demo unit like the other one you quoted me back on in October. I see this is a 2015, not a 2016, it has everything I want except for the convection oven and the 3 ac system with the energy management. I may be interested in this one. Let me know what your price is on it. Also, are you expecting any more 415's in stock soon, I know that they are changing over to the 2017's
