You may not realize it, but the top-selling Airstream Interstate 3500 is actually designed for golfers. The Class B motorhome has a special rack in the back to hold your golf club bags, keeping your clubs together and accessible so you can get to that first tee without hassle.

That’s not the only reason to consider the Airstream Interstate, though. It seats eight and sleeps up to two in comfort…for your local trips, take all of your buddies. And this is no cheapskate vehicle. The chassis is the Mercedes-Benz 3500 Sprinter with a 3.0 liter V6 turbo diesel engine. It can tow up to 5,000 pounds and has 30% better fuel economy than anything in its class. The handling and performance is everything you would expect from a Mercedes chassis, with a 5 speed automatic gearbox. It’s easy to drive, handling almost like a car. On top of that, it has stability assist and dual rear wheels, protecting you from the danger of crosswinds and improving its capacity. You can pack as much gear in as you could possibly need.

It has everything you need for your road trip – sleeping area, a galley kitchen with a cooktop, sink, convection microwave and refrigerator, a permanent bathroom and a removable dining room table. It comes in two floor plans. One has twin beds in the rear with three wardrobes, a bathroom and galley and a small lounge area that seats three. The second floorplan seats eight with a rear sofa that folds out to make a bed. In both floor plans the driver and front passenger seats can swivel to face the rear.

Although the Airstream Interstate is a relatively small and versatile motorhome that has more than enough facilities for a an outing with some friends. It comes in a variety of colors to suit your tastes…or to go with your custom color clubs. Because it is small, you can park in more places and enjoy a good night’s sleep, or use the lounge as a private place to discuss tactics and argue about your handicap. It can even get through drive throughs without a sweat, as long as they have ten foot overhead clearance (some do, some don’t).

The Airstream Interstate 3500 is also a luxury vehicle – handcrafted carpentry and UltraLeather and UltraSuede seats make the interior something you wouldn’t be ashamed of at an Open.
