Hi all,

New to forum, but not to Phoenix.  Currently have a 2007 2100.  Visited the factory last week to pick up some plumbin parts and had my seat cushions recovered (thanks Carol!).

Walking through the factory, I saw three completed TRX's, beautiful!!!  Butl like others have said, it is basically the same floorplan as my 2100 minus the slideout.  It is also about 18" longer.

If you like the smaller rigs, this is one to consider.

The price would turn me off.  I know of Class A's one can buy for 70k that have a whole lot more convenience room at just about the same length.

Yeh, $118,000 would be a deal breaker to me.  To think we paid $67,000 for OUR SPECIAL ORDER 2350 BACK IN 2007....how prices increased over the years.  There are more bells and whistles now-a-days, but the core of model 2350 has not changed since the introduction of model year 2004.  Most changes were made to accommodate the fridge in the slide out in 2010.

This seems hard to believe but since I found it on the internet it must be true...

Prices for Cars, 2007-2019 ($20,000)
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, prices for new cars were 5.15% higher in 2019 versus 2007 (a $1,030.13 difference in value).

Between 2007 and 2019: Cars experienced an average inflation rate of 0.42% per year. In other words, cars costing $20,000 in the year 2007 would cost $21,030.13 in 2019 for an equivalent purchase. Compared to the overall inflation rate of 1.75% during this same period, inflation for cars was lower.

In the year 2007: Pricing changed by -0.40%, which is below the average yearly change for cars during the 2007-2019 time period. Compared to inflation for all items in 2007 (2.85%), inflation for cars was much lower.

RonJ,

Thanks for the actual numbers.  I knew prices on typical vehicles did not change much during the same period.

My neighbor thinks his  2018 Airstream Interstate was a steal for $ 135k, but he probably doesn't know that Airstream is actually Thor. The  $175k msrp for a Thor "Skinny Winnie" with a rear sofa  bed is  nuts !

The 2-tone TRX  full body paint disguises the windows and makes it look like an LTV Wonder, but it would be really  interesting to see how stealthy it  looks in a solid dark color with a box awning. Perceived stealthiness is a big part of the appeal of the whole Winnebago ERA- Airstream Interstate luxury travel  coach van concept. The $180k Coach House Arriva van is really sweet, similar to  a scaled  down 2551 with sliding beds.

IMHO the appeal of the TRX wide body is that compared to typical class  B travel coach vans it has a dry bath, big refrigerator, and big water tanks, all the things you couldn’t get in a similarly priced but now defunct Roadtrek Sprinter van. For those who appreciate ample  storage and dedicated front living room / rear bedroom spaces, not so much.
