    Hi guys, I was just curious if anyone had looked into the cost of one of these. I have heard that they are exactly the same as the Downeaster unit, but I am hoping that they may be cheaper being a new product for Avalanche. We have a dealer not to far that is an Avalanche dealer, but he had not found the pricing on these units yet.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Try Kooy Brothers they are the dealer for downeaster.

    think it was around 8000 for mild steel insert and salter

    I have received the price from Kooy, it is more then last year.

    Quote from Kooy

    "You paid $4409 for the insert and $4149 for the salter.

    The new pricing as mentioned is $4,979 for the insert and $4,469 for the salter."

    Still cheaper then anything else, but still overpriced.

    Everthing should be cheaper. It's not the dealers fault, it's the manufacturer's.
