The  2013 Airstream Avenue touring coach has been upgraded as part of the celebration of 80 Years of Airstreaming History. The 2013 Avenue is a style icon and has been manufactured with high quality material including customized decors, ultra-leather seating for a feeling of luxury and comfort just like home. It is also the only Class B motorhome that has side-impact airbags.

The 2013 Avenue has a very powerful 323-horsepower, L96 V8 engine, a six speed automatic transmission and is built on a Chevrolet 3500 Series Express chassis. It has a gross vehicle weight of 9,600 pounds and will tow up to 8,000 pounds.

The 2013 Avenue offers three floor plans that give convenience to a single occupant, a couple or a family. They include The Avenue Lounge, The Avenue Lounge Wardrobe and the Avenue Suite. It holds 31 gallons of gasoline and 34 gallons of freshwater.

The full length of the 2013 Avenue has the same width, so it is easy to drive. It will fit into a regular parking space and will drive like any van. It is easy to drive in city traffic as well as on the open road and can go almost anywhere, which is not the case with other motorhomes. It is 21 feet and one inch long and nine feet and one inch high. Inside the height and width are both six feet. The Avenue sleeps two comfortably and seats up to seven. There is plenty of floor space for children in sleeping bags.

The generator is a 2.8kw Onan generator and the Avenue has a 9.9 gallon propane tank. The gray water or waste water tank holds 21 gallons, and the toilet or black water holds 10 gallons. There are two showers, one in the small bathroom and one on the exterior.

The kitchen area has stainless steel appliances, a two-burner stove, a 3.1 cubic-foot 12 volt energy efficient refrigerator and a microwave. There is also a six gallon water heater, a 16,000 BTU furnace and a 13,500 BTU air conditioner with a wall thermostat. It has a 45 amp multi-stage charger 750 watt inverter and two 12 volt deep cycle, maintenance-free auxiliary batteries.

The interior design is so well done, that people don’t feel cramped inside. In the front are leather-trimmed captain’s chairs that make driving effortless. The two front seats also turn to the rear to join two identical chairs already there. With a removable table it is a convenient place for games and meals. The 2013 Avenue has a standard 19 inch flat panel television.

The controls are standard issue from Chevrolet and are easy to operate, but they are heavy duty, since they were made for a truck. The 2013 Avenue will pull a boat or horse trailer. Even though the price of gasoline is high, driving a 2013 Avenue on a long vacation or road trip will still be cheaper than paying for hotel rooms.

The 2013 Avenue comes with a limited warranty that will replace or repair any defects in the workmanship or material of any of the parts of a new motorhome for thirty-six months from the day of delivery or 36,000 miles, that was bought from an authorized Airstream dealer either in the U.S. or Canada. The vehicle should not be overloaded. It has loading limits for the specified chassis that need to be followed by the owner.

The 2013 Avenue is a beautifully built, luxury Class B motorhome that offers a comfortable and convenient environment for living on the road or for taking camping vacations in style. Travelers never need worry about expensive hotel rooms or living far from their intended destination.

The last week of May has always been a “Wow” week in sports.

Of course, you have the greatest spectacle in racing, the Indianapolis 500, at the end of the month, and 2 of the 3 legs of horse racing’s Triple Crown are also held in May. But there have been noteworthy accomplishments on the field during this week as well.

In 1935, The Reds and Phillies played the first night game in Major League history at Crosley Field. The very next day, Babe Ruth hit the final three homers of his career in Pittsburgh while playing for the Boston Braves. In 1959, Harvey Haddix pitched 12 perfect innings against the Milwaukee Braves before losing in the 13th. Truly “Wow” moments!

Have you ever stepped into an Airstream Avenue Class b motorhome? When you do, there is only one reaction—WOW!  The Avenue has the ability to seat 7, making it the perfect vehicle for those looking for a comfortable and convenient way to travel. The Avenue is agile, featuring the Chevrolet 3500 Series Express chassis and the L96 V8 engine and 6L90 transmission. Add an 8,000 pound towing capacity, and side impact airbags, and you have style, versatility and safety—an unbeatable combination.

The Avenue is a great vehicle for those weekend getaways, but it can handle the long hauls too. It comers fully equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, and lounge area that easily converts into a sleeping area for two. Comfort is a must, and there is plenty of it, thanks to a 13,500 BTU air conditioning unit for those hot summer days, and a 16,000 BTU furnace for those bone chilling winters.

You simply can’t beat the Ultraleather seating, stainless steel appliances, and swiveling front captain seats that allow a family to enjoy a meal together. Traveling will hardly feel like traveling in an Airstream Avenue.

airstreamIs the open road calling your name, but you don’t know how to answer its call? Have you been stuck in the grind of the mundane and are ready to taste adventure? Well gather a few friends and the keys to a new 2011 Airstream Avenue. The Avenue is sleek and has a distinct feeling of sophistication. From its deep, rich paint to it’s raised roof, the Avenue is not your ordinary Class B motorhome. The interior brings a surprising amount of space and storage. When you enter the Avenue you feel like you’re in an uptown apartment, until you see the front driving area. The feel of the interior of the Avenue so much more spacious than you would first expect and the surprises keep coming as you explore the vehicle.

When you enter the Avenue from the front, you will enter the comfortable driving cabin. It is rather standard for the Chevy Express, with the addition of a highly advanced rear view mirror with a back up camera built in. However, if you enter from the side doors, you see two front facing Captain’s seats, behind the driving cabin. To your left you find a kitchenette, complete with a microwave, refrigerator, and two-burner stove. Passed the kitchen you find a bathroom with a shower and a lay down, three-seater sofa. All these interior features are capitalized by a modern design, which is not what you expect from your average motor home.

The interior features are matched by the incredible driving experience you have with the Avenue. Whether you are zipping through traffic in Chicago, driving on the rainy roads of Seattle, or hugging Pacific Coast Highway in California, the GM 6 liter Vortec V8 under the hood has you covered. The 323 Horsepower motor gets your mobile apartment wherever you need to go. No matter what driving conditions are thrown your way, you can drive the Avenue with confidence.

The Avenue is a well-crafted vehicle. It is a great performer whether you are managing dense city traffic or the rigger of a mountain road. It is the perfect vehicle for a couple or just two middle age friends enjoying a well-needed travel break. If you want a vehicle made for quick weekend getaways, but that can also be your mobile apartment in a cross-country trip, the Airstream Avenue is what you need.

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.

Dave Arbogast Van Depot had the chance to tour the 2011 Airstream Avenue Class B motorhome yesterday. Airstream has teamed up with Chevrolet to introduce the new Airstream model. We were very impressed with the looks and functionality and look forward to stocking the new Avenue! For more details call us at 1-866-975-3287 or read the statement from Airstream below:

“We designed every detail of the 2011 Airstream Avenue to bring our customers a motorhome that combines value, performance and comfort,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Our latest motorhome offering delivers remarkable horsepower and towing capabilities — all with budget and safety in mind. With the Avenue, travelers can enjoy the drivability of an automobile yet have a true home on wheels.”

The Avenue is built on the Chevrolet 3500 Series Express chassis with a L96 V-8 engine and 6L90 transmission, the largest of GM’s rear-wheel-drive six-speed automatic transmission variants. The Airstream Class B Van has a towing capacity of nearly 8,000 pounds and is equipped with side impact air bags. “For families gearing up for their first road trip or retirees taking a cross-country drive, both will appreciate the Avenue’s power and safety features,” said Wheeler.

In keeping with Airstream’s history of handcrafted quality and sophisticated styling cues, the 2011 Avenue, which seats seven and sleeps two, features Ultraleather seating and stainless steel appliances. Swiveling front captain chairs are designed so that meals can be enjoyed at a central table for four. The table can also be removed for extra comfort and convenience.

For that true home-on-the-road feel, Airstream has equipped the Avenue with a kitchen, bathroom, and a lounge area that conveniently turns into a bed for two. The class b motorhome also includes a 19-inch flat-panel HD LCD/DVD prewired to accept a satellite dish. A standard 13,500 Btu air conditioner and 16,000 Btu furnace allows for easy in-cabin temperature regulation.

“The distinctive combination of the two classic American brands, Chevrolet and Airstream, brings the ultimate value to customers by setting a new standard for effortless travel, perfect for those who just want to pack up and go,” Wheeler said.

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 2011 Airstream Avenue base model has a suggested retail price of $95,544.
