Canadian campers have reason to celebrate, that is if they are in the market for a new RV. Airstream announced that their popular Interstate Class B motorhome model will be available in Canada beginning in Spring 2013.
The Airstream Interstate, built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, claimed the spot of number one selling B-van model in the U.S. for 2011 and through September 2012 according to Statistical Surveys Inc.
The Interstate boasts over 50 best in class features that distinguish it from its competitors. As a result, the Interstate has experienced tremendous growth in the U.S. market, commanding 17 percent market share through September 2012. Interstate sales are up 72 percent year over year in the United States, leading Airstream to discuss opportunities for expansion in Canada.
"The Interstate offers a unique blend of luxury, design and performance that we are confident will do well in the Canadian marketplace," said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. "We see tremendous possibility in this region and look forward to a very active spring, when our Canadian customers can hit the open road in the Interstate for the first time."
