Airstream has announced the debut of its 2011 Interstate 3500 Class B motorhome, a touring coach built through the partnership between Airstream and Mercedes-Benz.

Airstream has outfitted the Class-B Interstate 3500 with seating for eight, a kitchen, bathroom, and a convertible lounge area that at night becomes a bed for two. Bucket seats in the cockpit swivel to face a removable table that seats four at mealtime, and a 19? flat panel HD LCD/DVD provides on-board entertainment.

A 3.1-cubic-foot refrigerator is cooled by an AC/DC compressor that uses 90 percent less power than conventional RV models. Additional energy efficiency is obtained by using interior LED lighting.

Although the Interstate is less than 23 feet long and 80 inches wide, people up to 6 feet 2 inches can stand comfortably inside the cabin.

For worry-free backing-up, the Interstate also features an optional 5.5-inch LCD screen mounted in the driver?s compartment to display the area behind the van whenever it is in reverse.

The 2011 Airstream Interstate is powered by a 3.0-liter Blue Efficiency V6 diesel engine that produces 188 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,200 to 2,400 rpm. Most importantly, the engine gets 30 percent better fuel economy than a comparable gasoline engine.
