Airstream to Intro Interstate ‘B’ at L.A. Show
Jackson Center, Ohio-based Airstream Inc. will be showing for the first time its new Sprinter-based Interstate luxury touring coach during press days Nov. 21-22 as part of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
According to a press release, the Interstate offers “nearly two dozen best-in-class Mercedes Benz features and a renewed commitment to safety and refined luxury.”
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%.
“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 Interstate is $146,300 and $149,006 for the EXT.
