Airstream Interstate is the Top-Selling Motorhome in 2012.
With their long and storied history, it is no wonder that Airstream campers are still leading the pack in RV sales. The company’s tradition of quality craftsmanship and premium materials are certainly major factors in the continuing popularity of the brand.
The Airstream Interstate motor home is the top-selling Class B Motorhome in the United States through July, according to figures released by Statistical Surveys, Inc. Thanks to challenging fuel costs, many travelers are downsizing to smaller motor homes. The luxurious features and favorable gas mileage of the Interstate make it an ideal choice for a more compact camping adventure.
The Interstate is built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 frame. With the quality and name recognition of Mercedes as its base, it is understandable why sales of the motor home are up almost 85 percent from 2011. The V6 Turbo Diesel motor delivers plenty of power and excellent fuel efficiency, with owners reporting up to 20 miles per gallon in highway driving.
The smartly-appointed interior of the Interstate Class B motorhome reflects the Airstream tradition of superior construction and premium materials. With UltraLeather and UltraSuede seating, both driver and passengers are assured of a comfortable ride. The handcrafted cabinets are beautiful and sturdy. With its efficient floor plans and ample storage space, the Interstate is an ideal small motor home. The superiority of the Interstate is reflected in the 45 percent growth in market share in the first seven months of 2012.
Depending on which floor plan is chosen, the Interstate can seat up to eight people with seat belts. One or two people can sleep well in the RV. Models feature either twin beds or a 70″ by 74″ bed created from the rear lounge bench seat. Converting the bench to a bed is a breeze thanks to the push-button electric motor. With its flexible seating, the Airstream Interstate functions equally well as a second family vehicle. For transporting the children to practice or attending tailgate parties, the Interstate is ideal.
The fully-appointed galley features a two-burner cooktop, 1.2 cubic foot microwave/convection oven and 3.1 cubic foot refrigerator. Both the burners and round sink feature glass covers that flip up out of the way when in use. The stainless steel sink and cooktop lend an air of contemporary elegance to the motor home.
