Designed to offer supreme luxury, comfort, and safety qualities, the Atlas has more than 50 best-in-class features and the most spacious floor plan in Airstream’s touring coach line-up.

Built on the award-winning Mercedes-Benz cut-away chassis, the Airstream Atlas offers travel comfort and features a bold design and premium safety features.

“Our Interstate product has set the bar high with a strong leadership position in the Class-B market; and it was a natural move to expand our partnership with Mercedes-Benz and get into the B+ segment” said Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of Airstream.

Worth Pondering…

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.
