Airstream Interstate No. 1 in ‘B’ Sales for 2012
Airstream Inc. announced today (Feb. 15) that, for the second year in a row, its Airstream Interstate was named the No. 1 selling Class B motorhome model in the U.S., according to data from Statistical Surveys Inc.
In a press release, the Jackson Center, Ohio company also reported that 2012 marked the best-selling year in the company’s 82-year history.
“We are pleased but not surprised that the Interstate has held the top spot for two years running,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler, noting that the builder grew market share in the touring coach segment by 20% and increased unit sales by 58%. “Our focus on delivering a premium experience for our luxury buyer has been very effective, and our strong dealer network has been the key to our success in the marketplace.”
The Interstate, built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, fuses the legendary quality and design of Airstream with Mercedes-Benz’s comfort, control and luxury. Airstream said the blend of these two premium brands yields a fuel-efficient, luxurious, safe and comfortable way for travelers to explore the open road.
