Airstream’s Interstate Tops B-Van Sales for 2011
Airstream Inc. announced today (Feb. 23) that its Airstream Interstate was named the number one selling Class B motorhome model in the U.S. for 2011, according to Statistical Surveys Inc.
In a press release, Airstream said the Interstate grew its market share by 68% in the touring coach segment against a 15% industry decline during the same period.
Airstream Interstate unit sales in 2011 increased almost 43% over the previous year. Airstream attributes the heightened interest in the company’s touring coaches to “the Interstate’s sophisticated style and dedication to consumer satisfaction.”
“By listening to and acting on customers’ requests we were able to establish the Interstate as the most desired B-van on the market today,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. “As we move into 2012 and beyond, Airstream will continue to provide market-leading motorhomes built with our legendary attention to luxury and quality.”
The Interstate is built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and, according to Airstream “fuses the legendary quality and design of Airstream with Mercedes-Benz’s comfort, control and luxury.”
