An Airstream Avenue Christmas

Over the river and thru the wood,
To grandfather’s house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Thru the white and drifted snow, oh!
Over the river and thru the wood,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes,
and bites the nose,
as over the ground we go.

This is the dream I had last night. Bundled from head to toe, sitting in the sleigh as the snow swirled around me, I thought to myself, “There must be a better way.”  Fortunately, I soon woke up, and realized that there was, indeed, a better way to get to grandfather’s house for that traditional holiday meal.

I can only imagine what Lydia Maria Child, who wrote the above poem in 1844, would think if she ever got the chance to ride in the 2011 Airstream Avenue. I know one thing—her sleigh riding days would be over!

The Avenue is built on a powerful Chevrolet 3500 Series Express chassis. It’s L96 V8 engine and 6L90 transmission has a towing capacity of nearly 8,000 pounds. A step up from horses, to be sure, but what really dazzles is the interior of the vehicle.

There is a kitchen, bathroom and lounge area that turns into a bed for two.  The Avenue features Ultraleather seating and stainless steel appliances, and the swiveling front captain seats are designed so that meals can be enjoyed at a table for four. It’s also the only Class B motor home equipped with side impact airbags. Let’s see a sleigh do that!

There is also a 19” flat screen TV, a standard 13,500 BTU air conditioner and 16,000 BTU furnace allows for easy in cabin temperature control. I’m sure Ms. Child would be shaking her head in amazement!
With all this, traveling to grandfather’s house this winter has never been easier, or more comfortable. In fact, once you spend some time in an Airstream Avenue, Grandfather may have to bring the meal to you!

The 2011 Avenue is available in two interior decors – onyx and light camel and two exterior colors – sheer silver and summit white.  A two-tone paint option is also available.  The Avenue has a suggested retail price of $95,544.
