Airstream today announced the latest addition to the brand’s legendary travel trailer model line with the 2015 Airstream Classic. The Classic is a trailer inspired by the needs of generations of owners with a passion for perfection and a love for the open road. Airstream took the collective feedback of customers at Airstream rallies, on phone calls, in emails and during visits to the company factory in Jackson Center, Ohio and turned it into a new and improved version of a beloved Classic trailer for 2015.
“We don’t update the Airstream Classic very often,” said Bob Wheeler, Airstream’s President and CEO. “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 slide-out pantry with significantly increased storage.
Next, Airstream challenged its engineers and wood craftsmen to redesign the master bedroom and bath. What resulted is even more space and convenience, including a new power-adjustable queen bed. Designed in concert with its partners in Italy, the unique functionality adjusts to provide more floor space for a wardrobe change and the perfect position for curling up with a book in bed.
Lastly, Airstream’s team of engineers skillfully integrated a complete air-duct system hidden within the trailer’s unique curves and edges – all to deliver even cooling throughout the trailer for any camping condition.
“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
