The floorplan lives so much larger than you’d expect. Flow, storage, lounge space and sleeping area. Airstream wins. Especially when no slide is involved. You really don’t miss anything. Well built, we have been pleased with the quality. Light and bright, the abundance of windows are fantastic. We really pay attention when booking campsites now because the windows take in exceptional views especially at the right sites. We opted for rain bed plan which is great! Extra floor space to get ready in, for the dog bed, and easier access to storage under the beds. Also nice to have separate beds if traveling with a friend or a kid etc.

I love my Airstream. We purchased in 2016 from the Seattle Airstream dealer and immediately travelled to Utah. It towed easily and was easy to handle. We decided immediately to make some changes internally and took it to Ultimate Airstream in Portland to re-do the kitchen and eating g area. We installed their "Grand Lounge" design and included a washing machine in the upgrade. In 2018, we purchased land to build a house and started living in the airstream full time for 18 months while it was being built. It was a pleasure to live in and at one stage, my wife broke her pelvis and so we even had to use a wheelchair in the Airstream to move her around. Very adaptable.

We traded a 2021 Atlas for the 2023 to get the new E1 Volta power system thinking it would solve the many problems we had with the power systems on the 2121 which included a complete failure of all solar panels and a cost to us for emergency repairs if over $2,000. Airstream refused to pay for the repairs simply because we did not get prior authorization for repairs at a non-Airstream repair shop. Without those repairs we were dead and 300 miles from a Airstream dealer. We were so excited to get our 2023 and yet things started going wrong immediately! First the Volta system failed on our first day out and we had to return to the dealer for a complete replacement. After that we started encountering so many issues that it would be hard to enumerate here. After taking it to the Denver Airstream dealer where it sat for 2 months we were told everything was functioning properly. NOT! The AC system would not function even when on shore lower. The microwave and induction stove kept failing. To add insult to injury an electronic module in the Mercedes engine caused the transmission to fail. The vehicle had to be towed 250 miles to Salt Lake City. No that that repair is completed the vehicle is sitting at the Salt Lake Airstream dealer waiting for the Volta system to be repaired again. I am not confident they even have a tech that is qualified to work on the system. To be continued …. In the meantime, DON’t BUY ONE!

We have owned our Airstream Atlas Murphy suite for 3 years and just completed camping in all of the lower 48 states! Everything we didn’t like in our previous Interstate has been corrected in the design of this van. All outdoor supplies (firewood, grilling supplies, chairs, table, outdoor games etc) can be stored in the cabinets on the exterior. This leaves all of the interior cabinets for food, clothing, bedding and entertainment. Having a full bathroom across the back of the van allows for privacy and comfort. everything dries out completely allowing you to easily live in the van for many nights in row. The kitchen is well thought out, the refrigerator and microwave are at a functional height, and there is a pullout pantry for food along the side of the refrigerator. The two recliners and large television are perfect for winding down at night. The murphy bed is very comfortable and the slide out allows you to walk around 3 sides of the bed. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with this RV

This review is for a BaseCamp 20X. This is a copy of the letter I wrote to Airstream/Thor. To whom it may concern. After 2 1/2 years of ownership, 11 service visits, and approximately 7 months total, in the shop, I’ve given up on ever getting the advertised airstream “experience”. (It’s currently in the shop since August 10th). I can’t tell you how disappointed I am in your product and its shocking lack of quality and dependability. This was my retirement gift to myself, always wanting to experience the airstream “life on the road”. After looking at other trailers, the BaseCamp 20X seemed like a perfect model to see how we liked RV traveling. Though we spent much more on the BaseCamp compared to the others we looked at, we believed it would be a better quality trailer and be more dependable on the road. We could not have been more wrong! In the 24 trips we have taken, we have yet to have ONE trip, where everything worked properly and we didn't have to make a list for another trip to service. Here is a brief list of the issues: 1. Heater did not work on our first trip, fixed after the second visit, when I had to tell the dealer that there was a service bulletin. 2. Fresh water tank only is 20 gallons, even though my owners manual and the original information on-line showed 27 gallons. Huge difference! Your customer service said that’s the way it is, no apology of course. Weird how you can misrepresent your product like that with no repercussions. 3. All the interior panels in the bathroom were cracking, and had to be reskinned. 4. Black water flush inoperative. The valve was installed backwards from the factory. 5. LP cover warped, replaced, but is warped again. Looks so cheap. 6. Bathroom floor squeaks loudly, 3 visits to repair. 7. Vinyl floor blistering around same area as squeak around wet bath. 2 repairs. I’m assuming the glue was not good and I will be seeing this again. 8. Gray tank sensor not reading correctly. 2 repairs. 9. Water pump issues. 6 repairs!! They are replacing the pump again on this visit. It’s still in the shop. 10. Propane leak, arrived at campsite with no propane one time! 11. Our last trip, the a/c would barely cool, so we left our trip a day early. They say they can not find anything wrong with it. It has cooled perfectly prior, even in our 110 degree temps in Phoenix. This is a concern, as we travel with 2 dogs and we leave them in the trailer by themselves at times. Not any more, I can’t trust or depend on this trailer to be safe for them. 12. Both rear table tops delaminating. In the shop now for this. Seems to be a problem on other trailer models as well based on a customer I met in service. 13. Approximately a dozen other minor issues that one should not expect at any price. It was easier for me to fix some of them myself, rather than deal with the service department. (For the most part, another huge disappointment) Until now, I just kept patiently thinking we would get everything fixed for good and not have to be in service so much. After over 2 1/2 years that hasn’t happened, and does not seem that it will. At this point we just feel so duped into believing the airstream quality myth. Once an iconic brand, you seem to be just another Thor trailer company now, only shinier and more expensive. I’m nervous every time we take it out, knowing something else will likely fail, possibly ruining a trip. We have loved RV living and will continue our camping adventures. Our plan is to upgrade to a 22-23 ft trailer, originally planning on a 23ft flying cloud. Even after all this, we still thought we wanted to stay with airstream. That last cling to your brand was given up on when I dropped it for the current service visit . Another customer in the shop with a new flying cloud, had all the interior panels delaminating! We would feel stupid to pay another 60-70K to upgrade to a larger airstream, and have the quality issues we have now. I can’t pay for a name again.

The Airstream Interstate 19 is a disastrous money pit built by unskilled workers using cheap materials while cutting corners and cost anywhere they can. I have owned mine for over a year and still I'm unable to fix several major issues with the van due to the poor build quality and incompetence of the dealer. I would never recommend this van to anyone. I regret buying it and don't wish this experience on anyone. The list of issues I've had is so long it could never fit in this review so lets just do the highlights. AC is cheap piece of junk that is so loud it can't be used. Most owners end up replacing theirs at a cost of $2000. Battery wiring was wrong and the coach battery kept getting drained. Solar wired wrong. Water pump replaced 3 times. Water heater doesn't work properly so you take cold showers. Shower doesn't drain. Dealer says it's normal. Door panel didn't fit right and damaged the paint. This has never been fixed. Sink leaked. Rain leaked into the cab. Rust on the roof because Airstream drilled holes during installation and never cleaned the metal shavings. Rattles constantly when driving. Suspension is inadequate to handle the 8000 weight so it had to be upgraded at a cost of $5500. Avoid this vehicle at all costs. It's a nightmare on wheels.

My experiences with our airstream atlas is not great . Being 70 years old my wife and I wanted a small comfortable rv to travel in and chose the atlas even though it was expensive. Currently with 20,000 miles in it I must say that the Mercedes part has been wonderful . Other than dealing with recalls, and having to change the chassis battery , I can say it’s been a joy to drive I take it to my Mercedes dealer once a year for oil change, updating recalls and general inspection before departing on our winter trip . My wife says it’s like driving and riding in a car . I wish I could say the same about the airstream side . It’s has been nothing but issue after issue. We have not taken one trip where something hasn’t happened . Constant issues with the controls on the black and grey tank. Have replaced the black tank valve twice and the grey tank once and still can’t get them to operate properly. Must say it’s not easy being 70 crawling under the rv and opening and closing the tanks by hand to empty each time because the controls malfunctioned. Have taken it to the airstream dealer near me 4 times pertaining to the tank situation only to find that after driving it 125 miles home that there is still issues . Each time the visit averaged costing $ 2000,00. You wouldn’t expect this on a luxury rv costing $250,000.00 . Airstream did awful job with quality and location of various panels to fix things . First time out the water heater had to be reset . You would think the reset would be easily assessable but to get to it you have to take out the drawers under the cooktop and reach to the back taking out two small screws to push the reset button. Unfortunately this had to be done several times which is a lot of work to simply push a button . The couch seems to get stuck in the down position frequently. I found this to be mainly because the fuse would not stay in its position . Finally fixed this with a piece of electrical tape. Problem is you have to take drawers out , lay on the floor and reach to the back of the couch to get to the fuse box for the couch . The door locks on the cabinets are useless as they don’t keep any door closed while traveling. I can go on and on but feel I have spewed enough . Finally I had a good friend within days of buying a new atlas that I sat down with and talked about my issues. He ended up buying a LT Leisure Van instead and loved it . Same floor plan and size with same Mercedes chassis but costing several thousand dollars less .
