Jackson Center, Ohio-based Airstream Inc. introduced its new Sprinter-based Interstate luxury touring coach November 21 as part of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Interstate offers nearly two dozen best-in-class Mercedes Benz features and a renewed commitment to safety and refined luxury, according to a company news release.
The company noted that Statistical Surveys Inc. named the Interstate the No. 1 selling Class B motorhome model in the U.S. from January to August, increasing market share in the touring coach segment by nearly 30 percent.
“The growing number of people who are inspired to get out and on the open road in an Interstate is exponential compared to when we first introduced this exciting product,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler.
“Our focus on ‘best-in-class’ products and dealer support continues to be our foundation for success.”
The Interstate’s enhanced hood, fenders, radiator grill, bumpers, and Xenon headlights give the unit a more aggressive styling.
It is also equipped with new lane keeping and collision prevention assist systems, and parking sensors.
The Interstate’s cockpit offers a “thicker and lavish steering wheel”, the company said, and a Mercedes-Benz badged gear shift control.
Other features include:
- Premium plank-style vinyl flooring
- 22-inch Samsung TV with Blu-Ray player
- Magic suede material on walls and trim
- In-dash Kenwood multimedia system
MSRP for the 2014 Interstate is $146,300 and $149,006 for the EXT.
Airstream, maker of the iconic “silver bullet” travel trailer, is the oldest recreational vehicle manufacturer in North America.
Following founder Wally Byam’s credo, “Let’s not make changes, let’s only make improvements” Airstream has remained a timeless classic.
A division of Thor Industries, Airstream is based in Jackson Center, Ohio.

I saw a peanut stand, heard a rubber band, I saw a needle that winked its eye. But I think I will have seen everything When I see an Airstream fly.
