Touring Coaches

What’s the Best Class B RV for You? Let’s Find Out.

Airstream Class B RV Interior

Let's compare four Airstream Class B Touring Coaches to each other to give you a clear picture of which one would be best for you and your lifestyle.

If you’ve been shopping around for a motorized RV, you know by now that Class B RVs are smaller and more streamlined than Class A motorhomes. They’re often called camper vans, as they’re most often built on Sprinter van chassis and customized within. We call our Class B RVs “touring coaches.” 

Our current Airstream Touring Coach lineup includes four models: the Atlas, the Interstate 24GL, the Interstate 24GT, and the Interstate 19. In this post, we’ll compare all four to each other and make it easy to tell which might be perfect for you and the way you love to travel. So let’s break this down one at a time. 

 

The Airstream Atlas Class B+ Touring Coach

 

Stats snapshot:

  • 24 ft. in length
  • Sleeps 2
  • Seats 4
  • 3.0L V6 turbo diesel engine

We call the Atlas a Class B+ touring coach because it’s more spacious and luxurious than a typical Class B RV. In fact, it’s the most luxurious touring coach we’ve ever created.

The Atlas was inspired by the best-selling Airstream Interstate series, which combines legendary Mercedes-Benz® engineering and iconic Airstream modern design.

 

5 Features You’ll Love:

  • The power slide-out makes room for the Murphy suite bed to fold down.

  • The 40” Samsung® LED Smart TV rises out of the entertainment cabinet.

Put Comfort First? Atlas is Perfect For You.

Atlas is the RV for couples who put their comfort and luxury first. If having room to spread out is number one for you whether you’re on a trip close to home or across the country, Atlas is your best choice. And it’s not just space. If richly appointed features and finishes bring you moments of joy, you’ll find plenty of those in the coach. And in the cockpit, you’ll find every Mercedes-Benz driving and safety feature you might already love in your daily life.

Travel as a couple?

In the 24GT, we’ve thought of everything that makes a trip for two more enjoyable – from cooking fresh meals to resting up for the next adventure. Take off as a couple for a weekend, a month, or a whole season, and you’ll see just how thoughtful every area of the coach is.

The Interstate 24GT floor plan is designed to maximize kitchen, storage, and sleeping space. At the end of each day, you can push a button and transform the rear sofa into a bed that spans the whole rear of the coach. The kitchen has all the essential appliances, including a drawer microwave. And the onboard restroom makes a hot shower a daily ritual, no matter how far from home you are.

Our smallest touring coach takes all the luxury, engineering, and design from the Interstate series and applies it in a compact, nimble floor plan – our smallest touring coach ever.

At 19 feet in length, this RV fits in virtually any standard parking space, which means one less thing to think about when you’re out on the road.

Solo Traveler or Minimalist?

The Interstate 19 is a solo traveler’s dream. If you’re hungry for a little of the van life experience but want to do so while surrounded by creature comforts like a real bathroom, galley, and closet, you’ll love how the 19 elevates the small space experience. And you’ll be surprised at just how roomy it feels inside.

 

The floor plan:

The Interstate 19 floor plan is a more compact version of its 24-foot counterparts, yet has all the same functionality. The rear sofa converts to a bed. The galley houses your appliances and upper and lower storage. And the captain’s chairs in the cockpit swivel for a second seating space when you’re parked.
