Airstream produced its first Class A motorhomes in 1979, releasing a 24-foot model and a 28-foot model to the public. In 2006, the company discontinued its Class A lines of motorhomes, choosing to focus exclusively on Class B and Class C vehicles.
Airstream typically offered its customers a choice between a wide array of different features and conveniences on its Class A motorhomes. The air conditioning of its 1993 Land Yacht is an example of this. Customers chose between a 10,000-BTU roof-mounted air conditioner and a more powerful 15,000-BTU air conditioner, or they had the option of switching out the assembly for a 21,000- to 28,000-BTU furnace. The company also offered additional options, such as the choice between a 5-cubic foot refrigerator and a 10-cubic foot refrigerator, multiple types of gas and electric grills, and various types of water heaters.
Optional equipment features that Airstream built into its class A motorhomes include cruise control, multiple wattage power converters, solar panels, water purifiers and luggage racks. The company also offered multiple types of on-board generators ranging from 2500 to 12,500 watts.Learn more about Vehicles
