Airstream Spotlight: The Airstream Classic

Mon Oct 10, 2016

147611809326970.jpgThe Airstream Classic is a legend, an icon with the richest history of all Airstream’s travel trailers. The Classic is built for long-term adventurers.

Inside, RVers will find spacious living areas, elegant designs, private sleeping quarters and abundant storage. The interior cabinetry is made of hand-rubbed hardwood, and all the tabletop surfaces are made of sleek Corian, giving the Classic a residential feel.

The Classic has more available storage than any other Airstream travel trailer, as overhead cabinetry and the back trunk leave room to spare.

The powered dinette can be used for a meal by candlelight, and also converts into a bed. With the Multi-plex touch control system, the owners can monitor LP and tank levels, control lighting, the power awning and other interior features from multiple locations, and with more control and convenience than conventional switches.

The 32-inch television and high-quality Polk audio system, designed by acoustics experts, offer high performance entertainment and premium sound.

The custom backsplash – giving the appearance of crushed aluminum – gives the expanded galley that authentic Airstream.

An illuminated door handle, an aluminum entry step, and even a doorbell make the Classic so much more than a travel trailer – it’s designed to feel like home.

With a heated shower floor and towel bar, the RVer is traveling with the comforts of a day spa. The hydronic heating system keeps the interior temperature comfortable and evenly circulates warm air in total silence.
