Funny thing about marketing you just never know when they will have a winner. But for the most part they miss by a mile. I work in product engineering and have to deal with marketing more than I would like to talk about

I'm not sure I get what Keystone is doing here.

I potentially would be the niche market they're targeting for this, but these first few floorplans are lacking, in my opinion. A step-tub and no shower surround option? Fiberglass sides, but a rubber roof? Where's the outside storage (one big reason I don't look at Airstream). It says it's there - maybe in the back somewhere?

Like others have mentioned, it's so low to the ground, I likely couldn't back it into my home driveway (which is only a slight incline) to load up for a trip without tearing up the back end.

The blackout shades are great, but not if they're going to hang that far away from the actual window - it defeats the purpose since you'll still get quite a bit of light on the sides streaming in.

I have a Keystone now and really like it, but I'm not sure unless this one evolves significantly that it would be on my list for a future TT based on what I'm seeing now.

It's my hunch they're aiming at the fiberglass trailer crowd with that "aerodynamic " shape...

I'm thinking $25,000-$30,000 range...

What say you?

Breaking News!
I've been following a thread at the Airstream Forums on this subject and a couple of folks posted prices from the shows...
Not exactly "official" MSRP's, but better than the nothing we have at the moment!
Here are quotes from Vantage by Thor... - Page 5 - Airstream Forums

"The one I saw at the RV Show was approx $36k I believe.
LilNomad"

"The Vantage at the RVIA show in Pomona, CA was a 32' model (actual length was over 34') it was priced at around $42k.
Newroswell"

Except for way-off-the-mark me, all you folks were pretty close-
But I think Stumblefoot gets the prize for being closest of all.

Here ya go, Stumblefoot:

Now that is one tasty picture. Makes my mouth water. Thanks!

I'll check out that forum you posted a link to. Amazing that they have 5 pages in an Airstream forum. Wonder what is attracting them?

Hi, Stumblefoot

There's a lot of discussion there about the possibility that the Vantage is designed to appeal to Airstream admirers...
But I'm not thinking that Airstream has much to worry about in THAT department!
I still think that the target market is folks that like the look of molded fiberglass trailers but want more space and amenities and are willing to pay for getting them in a unit with a similar "look".

Enjoy the virtual beer- you earned it!

I was finally able to find a few prices on the Vantage.

Model #32FLS; GVWR = 8,200 lbs., Hitch Weight = 870.
MSRP $47,283 Oklahoma City
MSRP $43,885 St. Louis
MSRP $43,900 Calgary

There still are no details for model #32QBS at this time.

Vantage Owner

We just took delivery on a Vantage 32FLS. Price before tax, title, etc; including some upgrades/extras was $38,000. We love the interior and the exterior look. Yes, we looked at Airstreams and really liked them also. The Vantage has more storage inside, was roomier, and less than half the price of the Airstream we were looking at. We have had some issues with the Vantage right out of the gate but I will wait to see how Keystone resolves them before I share.

Looks like a reincarnation of the silver Avions on the outside, but in fiberglass. Like noted, it is a bit short on storage.

Congratulations on your new Vantage. So exciting! And, thanks for sharing your purchase price.

Keep us updated with your progress as you enjoy your new TT; things you like, minor frustrations, etcetera. You're the first owner to chime in here and we're anxious to learn more about Vantage.

Good luck with your warranty repairs too! Hopefully, Keystone resolves them ALL to your satisfaction.
