There are so many different types of motorhomes that it can be difficult to keep track of them all. Airstream alone makes dozens of different RVs and travel trailers, and it is difficult to categorize them all. One type of RV you might be interested in is a motorhome. But Does Airstream make a motorhome?
Yes! There are five Airstream motorhome options available to you. They are also known as touring coaches. These Airstream motorhomes are the result of a fantastic partnership between Airstream and Mercedes-Benz. They combined the iconic Airstream style with German engineering to build five Class B RVs for you to choose from.
These motorhomes are filled with everything you could ever need to have a fun and relaxing experience in your new Airstream motorhome.
Pretty soon you will be on the road with your new Airstream motorhome. With five options to choose from, you will be able to look at each in-depth and get an idea of what the differences are in each model.
5 Awesome Airstream Motorhome Touring Coaches
Here we will look at the five Airstream motorhome options you have available to you. We will look at all the important specifications of each RV. Additionally, we will look at some of the exciting features that make each motorhome unique.
Although they all have many similarities, they are not the same touring coach and they each have things that stand out. It is important to note that although this is a numbered list, we did not rank the motorhomes. Instead, the motorhomes are listed in the order they appear on the Airstream website.
The first Class B Airstream motorhome we will be looking at is the Airstream Atlas. This is the most expensive option available, but it is also one of the most popular. It costs $239,261, making it not only the most expensive Class B Airstream motorhome but one of the most expensive Airstream products entirely.
This motorhome uses a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 chassis, and a Mercedes-Benz 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel engine. Additionally, you can expect to get 16 to 18 miles per gallon when driving on the highway. The Class B RV has an LPG of 9.76 gallons. It also uses a 300 watt solar system for solar power. It is 24 feet in length, sleeps up to 2 people, and seats up to 4. The tank capacities are 23, 31, and 23 gallons for fresh, grey, and black water respectively.
According to Airstream, the Atlas is their most luxurious touring coach to date. Additionally, although most of the Airstream motorhomes are labeled as Class B, the Atlas has been upgraded to a Class B+ because of the plethora of features that enhance the coach.
One of the most exciting features of the Atlas is the power slide-out Murphy Suite. The Atlas is the first Airstream motorhome to add this feature. When you are driving the slide-out is retracted and fits seamlessly with the body of the vehicle. However, when you are at the campground, it extends with the touch of a button on the Multiplex control panel. With the slide-out extended, you will have plenty of space to relax on your couch or bed.
Furthermore, the three-piece residential-style bathroom is a big pull for many buyers. The bathroom takes up the entire rear of the motorhome. It includes a sliding pocket door, closet, vanity, shower, and porcelain toilet.
2. Interstate Lounge EXT
The next Airstream motorhome for us to look at is more middle of the road in terms of price. It costs $190,447, tying it for second in price among Class B Airstream motorhomes. This decrease in price from the previous option does not mean you are getting an inferior product; it is just a little different.
The Airstream motorhome uses a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 extended chassis, and a Mercedes-Benz 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel engine.

The tank capacities are 26 gallons, 27 gallons, and 13 gallons for freshwater, greywater, and black water respectively. Finally, the RV is 24 feet in length, can sleep up to 2 people, and seat up to 9.

The driving experience is another big draw of this vehicle for consumers. Since Airstream is partnered with Mercedes-Benz it is natural that many of the safety standards that Mercedes-Benz uses for their cars were applied to these Airstream motorhomes. Many safety features are included, but the most notable ones are the rear and side view cameras, and assist features to the Parktronic parking system.
3. Interstate Grand Tour EXT
The Interstate Grand Tour EXT is priced exactly the same as the Interstate Lounge Ext at $190,447. As we mentioned above, this ties it for the second most expensive Class B Airstream motorhome.

Like the previous option, you can expect to get 18 or more miles per gallon when driving on the highway after purchasing your vehicle.

4. Tommy Bahama Interstate

This makes it the second cheapest Airstream motorhome available to you. So, if you are shopping on a budget, this may be one of the best options for you. However, just because it is cheap does not mean that it is not high quality.

5. Interstate Nineteen
The final Airstream motorhome for us to look at is the Interstate Nineteen. It is also the cheapest vehicle available at just $161,099. Since it is the cheapest, that also means there is a reduction in size. The RV is only 19 feet long, sleeps up to 2 people, and seats up to 4.
However, that does not mean that you do not have enough space to live. A 19-foot motorhome provides plenty of room for two people to live. So, if you are working on a budget, this is one of the better options for you along with the Tommy Bahama Interstate.
