If Nashville doesn't get real, I'm planning a nice trip to DC.

Cool - It looks like we have a "friendly rivalry" here.
Honestly, based on past performance, I think the Huskers will lose this game.

-Ameer Abullah hurt
Wisky with the #1 defense right now

Hoping we beat Bucky, we were really embarrassed last year...

Re: Newbie with a Question on 2015 Altitude Price UPDATE

I just got back from the dealership. The Altitude they found for trade has since been traded to another dealership another 250 miles away. We talked and he said by the time it got back here it would have probably have around 700-800 miles on it. I told him I didn't want to do that, since it would have too many miles on it and who knows how the "transporters" treated it on the trips. Didn't want to take a chance.

Anyway, we found another but it was also a few hundred miles away. He called and that dealership wanted a equal trade and the one my dealership had to trade did not have the back up camera.

My dealership actually had one at one of their many dealerships, about 50 miles away, but it is equipped with the tow package as well. I told him I wasn't interested in the tow package and the additional $800 on top.

He talked to the sales manager and rather than trade the other dealership for the one they had with the tow package, he offered it to me at the same price quoted for the other one I was going to get, $35,580+$279 docking fee.

Can you guess what I did...?

Yep, wrote him a $500 deposit check and signed the purchase agreement right then. He's going to try and get me 2.3% for 72 months, but even at 2.9% for 72 months, I think I got a good deal.

What's nice about this trailer tow group IV package, that I didn't know about at the time, is that it comes with a 180 amp alternator, rear load leveling suspension (not exactly sure what that is), heavy duty engine cooling and a full-size spare (wondering if it has the black 20" wheel on it).

Needless to say, I'm pretty happy about the purchase - now if the Huskers can win today it would be a perfect Saturday

Not much negotiating at all actually. I was pretty fair when I told them what we wanted to spend and when I asked them for their bottom line, with the sales manager in attendance. I was holding out for a little more off. I feel really good about my "new & improved" deal

Sure, I'd be glad too. It was truly a painless process for me.

I can PM you the info & my salesman's name if you like. If you give me your name and tell him I sent you I could get a $100 referral from him.

Can't imagine having one of these without a tow package, who knows your scenario may change and then BAM, you need to tow a trailer for yourself, for a friend, for a neighbor! In any case it will help you at resale, I wouldn't buy one without! Consider it a lucky accident, and it sounds like you got it for free, :-)

It might be a great time to contact him. When I was buying mine this morning, my salesman said they had just gotten 3 in at their Lincoln, Nebraska lot. Not sure about the colors though.

I took 1, so now they're down to 2

I believe they are open until 8:00 tonight.

Re: Newbie with a Question on 2015 Altitude Price

Congrats!

And that full size spare will be on an 18" steel wheel with a tire that is slightly narrower than the normal four corners. That's what fits in the bin and it's specifically there to be used as a spare, not to be rotated in. It's the same diameter as your regular tires. Safety is the reason that a full-size spare comes with the towing package..."donuts" cannot support a situation when you have a flat while pulling something behind. For the record, this is the same full size spare that comes on every trim level that provides for a full size spare.
