Airstream Inc. announced today (Feb. 20) that its Interstate brand is the top selling Class B motorhome in the U.S. for the third year in a row, according to Statistical Surveys Inc.
In 2013 Airstream Interstate unit sales increased 48% over 2012, nearly three times the overall segment growth which was up 15.9% year-over-year, the company reported in a press release. The Interstate now has nearly 23% market share in the touring coach segment.
“The momentum we gained in 2011 and 2012 has carried us for another year,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. “To keep things rolling, we unveiled a new Interstate model at the end of 2013 in an effort to enhance the product and experience for our buyers. We think these changes will only magnify interest as we move into 2014.”
Airstream said the Interstate motorhome “continues the tradition of extraordinary design and handcrafted quality that has made Airstream a style classic for 82 years.” Offering fuel-efficiency and luxury, the line includes nearly two dozen “best in class” Mercedes-Benz features and enhancements. The Interstate has a MSRP of $146,300, and $149,006 for the EXT model.
“Our dealers are also very instrumental to the success of the Interstate, and we appreciate their hard work over the last three years in helping Airstream maintain the top retail spot for ‘B’ vans,” said Wheeler.
Airstream had a record-setting 2013, making it the best-selling year in its 82-year history. The demand for Airstream’s products led to the company’s largest backlog in more than 30 years.
