Airstream’s Interstate is the No. 1-selling Class B diesel motorhome in the U.S. for the third year in a row, according to Statistical Surveys.
According to the news release, Airstream Interstate unit sales increased 30.2 percent in 2014 – nearly 8 percent higher than the overall Class B segment growth, which was up 22.8 percent year over year. The Interstate now has 33.7 percent market share of the diesel Class B segment.
“The momentum we have seen over the past three years is incredible,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. “The collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Airstream combines the best of two iconic and luxurious brands.”
“Interstate continues to lead sales for all Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based platform models in the Class B diesel space,” said Justin Humphreys, VP of sales for Airstream.
According to the news release, Airstream had a record-setting 2014, making it the best-selling year in the company’s 83-year history, and the third year of record sales in a row. The demand for Airstream’s design-driven products led to the company’s largest backlog in more than 30 years and plant expansions for both its van and travel trailer production facilities.
