2016 Airstream Interstate Grand Tour EXT 24 - Ontario


Hi all,
it is with some regret that I am making this post as we are parting with our Airstream. This forum has been amazing at helping us know what and how to upgrade our grand tour. I recall our first trip to Florida where the atkins monitor was telling us the batteries were dying and Lew helped us within 5 minutes of posting (atkins controller was broken, batteries were fine). This forum was and continues to be the first place to turn for support. You folks are amazing and I hope its ok that even if I don’t have an airstream any more I drop by and comment or ask questions.

For those of you who would like to eliminate all the effort in getting an airstream that is more capable of being off grid we have done the work. Reason for the sale is we are having an expedition vehicle built based on a Fuso chassis which is more capable of offroading. Below is the standard advertisement. For those on this forum you know that doubling the batteries, 4X the solar etc is required to make an interstate off grid. We have also made several other changes listed below. we are selling the airstream, matching trailer and vespa. If any of you or your friends would like an upgraded grand tour please have them contact me. It was a US vehicle and I imported it to Canada, it would be easy to move it back to USA. Thanks..Cameron.

2016 Airstream Interstate: upgraded to be off grid capable

We LOVE our Airstream ! It is stunning inside and outside, beautiful to drive and wonderful to camp in. The inside is a modern contemporary design which matches the beautiful Mercedes Sprinter chassis it’s built on. You can drive easily at 80 mph while enjoying the scenery and an amazing stereo. When you park for the night you can enjoy being off grid for as long as you want. You will never need to plug in ! If that sounds like what you want then our Airstream will be perfect for you. We know because it was perfect for us. Please note, Airstreams do not come this way, they need an extension cord to plug them in within 8 hours of stopping. To us that defeats the purpose of enjoying the outdoors or boondocking in a city. We spent $20,000 and 6 months upgrading ours so that is capable of being off grid.

We are also selling a matching trailer, bike carrier and Vespa. We are avid hikers, kiteboarders, mountain bikers and stand up paddle boarders. On shorter trips we took the Nicova bike/cargo carrier which allowed us to have wet/dirty gear in the cargo box. On longer trips we took mtn bikes, SUP’s, kiteboarding gear and a matching black Vespa. This allowed us to park just outside of cities and use the Vespa to explore the city. The Vespa is very capable of two up riding at 100kph allowing you to tour a National Park or city and park anywhere you want. If you have been to a National Park in the summer you will know parking is at a premium so the Vespa is an amazing addition.

We are selling the Airstream, Trailer, Bike carrier and Vespa.

We have had amazing memories with our Airstream. Its taken us to Banff/Jasper, Yellowstone, Baja, California, Key west, Cape breton and been the perfect vehicle for travelling fast on pavement and a bit slower on gravel roads. Beyond that terrain the airstream gets pushed too much. We are having a more capable 4×4 RV custom built that can get us into the back country. The new RV is bigger and will have a KTM dual sport on the back, so we will no longer need the trailer and Vespa.

Our 2016 Airstream Interstate Grand Tour, trailer, bike carrier and Vespa is for sale: $110,000USD. New they are: Airstream $150+k, Trailer $6k, Bike carrier 2K, Vespa $5k plus $20k in upgrades total $180k. You will save over $65K not to mention the 6 months and trouble of upgrading the Airstream. The Sprinter chassis is good to 400,000+ miles
