Airstream’s “Interstate” touring motor home is based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and it has been around since 2010. However, the Ohio based coachbuilder recently unveiled the 2014 model of this mobile home during the Los Angeles Motor Show, and it definitely managed to impress the audience with its luxurious interiors, great performance and long range.
From a visual point of view, the vehicle has a sharper grille compared to its 2013 predecessor as well as various chrome accents and HID headlights. The RV will be available in 2 different trim versions and in different lengths in order to satisfy a wide array of preferences. As far as the interior is concerned, this thing is packed with amenities such as a Kenwood Multimedia System, a 22-inch Samsung flat-screen TV and a Blu-Ray Player that promises endless entertainment opportunities. Moreover, the parking sensors, lane-keeping alert and collision warning system make the driver’s life a whole lot easier while improving safety. The “Interstate” features enough seating arrangements for 9 people, but it can only accommodate 2 when it comes to sleeping.
Power-wise, this lavish home on wheels features a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 engine that provides 188 horsepower, 325-lb-ft of torque and a range of 20mpg. With a price tag of $146,300, the new “Interstate” is about $20,000 more expensive than the 2013 version but it definitely has a lot more to offer as well.
