Vibe being Discontinued?

I am new to the FR forum so I hope I have come to the right place. My husband & I are planning to buy our first RV soon & are looking at the Vibe 268RKS. However we were at the Atlanta RV show this past weekend and were told by a dealer (who does not carry the Vibe) that it is being discontinued. Has anyone else heard this? Don't know if this will affect our decision but do want to know the facts going in. Thank you for any info anyone can share.

That would really surprise me, given the popularity of the Vibe and the design that I feel is so different than so many other units ...and appealing to what so many want in decor, etc. I’m curious though. As soon as you said “does not carry”...that dealer’s credibility went out the window!

That would surprise me, and tick me off, because nothing was said to me and I just bought one from the factory in July. I think he was just hunting for a sale.

I havent heard of that and I and I read everything I see on Vibe, plus we have a great relationship with our Dealer. I can tell you that we bought the 2017 268 RKS with outside kitchen this past spring and absolutely love it. We had bought a Salem Cruiselite last year but after alot of research traded in for this ( and kicked ourselves for not doing that last year!). We looked at it inside and out, at the rv shows, we have looked at every trailer that we could find with that layout ...inside and out. We kept going back to the vibe...some had same layout but thinner cushions, smaller fridge, smaller oven, bed was against a wall etc. For some reason ours came with an upgraded couch opposed to some of the jiffy sofas which we saw in the same model. I love the kitchen counter space, floor space, and the size of the fridge plus the outside fridge helps. The large awning, even the laundry chute..which my husband thought was silly but has since used and likes! We have gone through several other trailers since our purchase (one of the campgrounds we go to is attached to a dealer) but havent found a trailer that we like as much as ours. We like the quality and are really happy with it...

Sounds like a salesperson trying to get you to buy their product, instead. Really, some will tell you anything to get you to buy their stuff.

I woulda said "Oh, that's wonderful! Now I should be able to get a heck of a deal on one of 'em!!"................

If a salesman, whose store doesn't even carry that line, is the source I would be very suspicious... I'd call, or email, Vibe's Regional Sales Rep. Her info is below:
