The proud manufacturer of the world’s finest travel trailers has now announced the launch of its 2011 Interstate 3500 Class B motorhome. An upshot of collaboration between Airstream and Mercedes-Benz, the new touring coach offers the legendary quality and design of the Airstream brand combined with the comfort and luxury of Mercedes-Benz. Sure to inspire the adventurer within, the 2011 Airstream 3500 Interstate promises a fuel-efficient, luxurious and comfortable ride. The motorhome comes with seating for eight, a kitchen, bathroom and a convertible lounge area that doubles a bed for two. Other amenities include an on-board 19-inch flat panel HD LCD/DVD, 1.2 cubic foot convection microwave oven, a stainless steel two-burner cook top, a 3.1 cubic foot refrigerator and interior LED lighting.
An optional 5.5-inch LCD screen in the driver’s compartment displays the area behind the van in the reverse mode. The Class-B Interstate 3500 also boasts a efficiency 13,500 BTU Dometic roof-mounted air conditioner, an optional 2.5-kilowatt Onan propane generator and a 26-gallon fresh water tank, which has its own 6-gallon water heater you can use for having hot showers. The Interstate’s 3.0-liter Blue Efficiency V6 diesel engine delivers 188 hp and 325 lb. ft. of torque.
The 2011 Interstate 3500, priced at about $121,274, is available in twin and lounge floor plans, with two interior decors (Onyx and Sand Pearl) and two exterior colors (silver and white).
