Airstream Inc. today announced the latest addition to the brand’s “legendary” travel trailer line with the 2015 Airstream Classic. According to a press release, the new Classic trailer was inspired by “the needs of generations of owners” through extensive feedback from the company’s loyal customer base.
“We don’t update the Airstream Classic very often,” said Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of the Jackson Center, Ohio-based Thor Industries Inc. subsidiary. “But when the world’s most passionate customers come to you with great ideas, you listen. Our R&D team searched the world for partners and innovators to bring these improvements to life.”
With many customers requesting an “at home” look and feel while they prepare their favorite meals, Airstream started with the kitchen to incorporate cherry-wood cabinetry, hardware from Amerock, high-polish Corian countertops and durable Kohler faucets. Additional updates include a premium stainless steel oven from Smev and high-end range hood from Baraldi, which complement the Classic’s refrigerator, Airstream’s largest, and a slideout pantry with significantly increased storage.
The 2015 Classic also features a redesigned master bedroom and bath, adding more space and convenience with a new power-adjustable queen bed. Designed in concert with Airstream’s partners in Italy, the bed adjusts to provide more floor space for a wardrobe change and the perfect position for curling up with a book in bed.
For overall comfort, Airstream integrated a complete air-duct system hidden within the trailer’s unique curves and edges – all to deliver even cooling throughout the trailer.
“The passion of our customers to find new freedoms, new places and new friends was the driving force behind the transformation of the Classic,” says Wheeler. “By the time all was said and done, we introduced dozens of customer-inspired upgrades to our totally new 2015 model, carefully balancing innovation with time-tested Airstream design and quality. Following our founder Wally Byam’s credo, ‘let’s not make changes, let’s make only improvements,’ we are proud to say it is the best Classic yet.”
Additional upgrades to the 2015 Airstream Classic include:
• High-end Villa furniture including a sofa with individually power reclining seats.
• More of the iconic Airstream windows.
• Low-energy, high-visibility LED lighting
• A marine-grade Polk stereo system.
• Powered stabilizer jacks.
• Awnings with matching foldable Zip Dee chairs.
