I googled aviators last night after reading this. They do look neat, but WOW all the ones I saw at dealers were $70-80k+ sticker with actual pricing of mid $40-mid 50k. I think most in that price range are looking at 5ers.

On forest rivers website they have a 3rd model available with alot of "tbd" specs. There is the electra, Wright - flyer, and the spirit of saint louis.

Cool niche market trailers for sure though!!!

At 40 or 50 thou, there would be no possible way I could remain either married or not commited had I suggested to my wife to spend that much on a tt. The field mice would have better living accomadations than I would. Had I brought one home, my living space would be nice, but I would be divorced, and right back to the field mice comparison

the thing people forget is the few of us who actually bought these RV's paid a bit more than the current prices, in my case it was closer to 70,000, than FR decided to dump the line and remaining inventory into the dealer network making mine and a few others worthless for trade in, I know I tried.

Giant Rec has sold 5 units in total now. 3 were at the Rally last week. Yea the lady taking over Brian's job has some big shoes to fill. Brian is moving up in FR. He has been there 20yrs. When I was there 3 weeks ago, there were working on a unit out of the Miami area thT was sold from the Greenville, SC dealer.

yes giant sold 3 at a much discounted price compared to what we paid, now maybe you are going to keep yours forever but I like to trade every year, according to my last attempt to trade at giant my wright flyer with every option but the sony tablet, that i paid 68,000 just 5 months ago is worth less than 40,000, that hurts.

It is a bummer to know that the units have devalued so much. I bought mine early this summer and gave 47K for my Electra so I am not hurting as bad as others but still . . .

my own fault for trading, when you trade its either retail for retail or wholesale for wholesale, my problem is i did not think Don was going to drop the price 15,000 after I bought. if i remember TB you got yours somewhere in the upper 50,000 so you are not too bad, oh well i could just buy something else and rent this out for Disney vacations

Yea, I paid 54 + Tax & Tag but I had not trade. But I'm very happy with mine now. My wife would like a big 5ver but I don't want to buy a bigger truck just for that. I sure we'll find something at the Tampa Show in Jan we can't live without.
