Here is what I put a down payment on and need to decide by early next week

From my Local HS dealer :

New 2009 Hot Springs Vista (Sterling shell/Coastal Cabinet) with
- Full 5 year/2 year warranty
- Spa Cover, with cover Cradle cover lift
- CD Ozinator
- Start up Chemicals
- Spa stairs
- Lighting package
- Tri - X filters
- Delivery + Install

Cost $8400 + tax


I was not able to Wet Test this model but I did Wet Test the HS Envoy which I liked a lot and was the closest in configuration

Is this as good a deal as the dealer told me it was?

Holy crap. Is that a NEW 2009 Vista that's never been owned? For $8,400 I'd say that's definitely outside the norm. Very good deal. If you liked the Envoy, you'll like the Vista. The lounge is a little longer (couple inches) and it's bigger over all. The corner seat is angled more like a 45 degree angle instead of 90. Otherwise that's a great hot tub.

Enjoy!!!

OK - I am convinced that I am getting a good deal smile.gif
I poked around the forum and it looks like people have paid $9-11K and some paid that ~3 years ago

I was caught off guard - as we were talking about what he had in 2010 models -- he just said I have 2 of these, pointing to a Vista, that are new 09's in the warehouse for $8K - and would not budge on price. Then he said the cover lifter was an additional $400--- that seemed pricey for a lifter and I had not researched this spa yet....

I did not realize at the time that the Vista was one of the biggest HS spas--- So I am very excited --- needless to say..
Delivery is in 1 week !

Big thanks to all those who asked my beginner questions....

The warranty is 5 years parts and labor, not 5 and 2.

kenc,

Great deal. You'll enjoy the hot tub. And the Cover Cradle lifter does indeed sell for $400. They are designed specifically for the Hot Spring brand, and are extremely popular in my market. smile.gif Happy Soaking!! Congrats on your new hot tub by the way!

hottubdan,

Good catch on the warranty. I didn't even notice that. Yes indeed, the Hot Spring is a 5 year warranty parts/labor on the equipment, plumbing, glue joints, jets, pumps, heater, controls, and cabinet. The interior shell is actually warranted for 7 years.
