Airstream Atlas Murphy bed
 
Anyone seen one in person? Just saw a video on one and it is impressive. Actually to me this is the perfect floorplan for me. At $217k, I don't expect to sell many.
If Winnebago did this floorplan for the $120k range, I would be all over it!

Yeah, over $250,000......

WOW...$250,000 ....I think I'd rather have a Roadtrek E-TREK for $145,000 to $150,000 and save the money..... Also, I understand that Airstream has a 3 year warranty compared to the 6 years warranty from Roadtrek.....

By the way... Winnebago has a one year warranty.... And, while I have seen a Winnebago Navion with the Murphy bed...it's OKAY... but, not in the same class... finishing details on the Navion are not even as nice as the high end Roadtrek RS, CS or E-TREK.....

Look at them for yourself....

I thought I had finally found what I was looking for based on the marketing video from Airstream.. Went to the dealership and I could not believe how badly made it was. Pleasure Way murphy bed model was superior in quality and better price.

Very unfortunate

Saw a review of the Airstream Atlas.... looked pretty good... guess you don't really know until you see it person....

I was recently inside the E-TREK... it's VERY NICE...at an RV show.. they wanted to sell it to me for $143,000... I'm fine with my current situation.... don't want more debt...

At $143 k and the extemely generous warranty..... I think it's a good deal, I'm not ready for that.

I agree with you 100% - you must see it before you buy

"Actually to me this is the perfect floorplan for me."

The Leisure Travel Vans Unity and Wonder models have similar "murphy bed" layouts avail., if I remember correctly. https://leisurevans.com

They certainly do have a similar floorplan

My wife didn't like the Murphy Bed....takes up too much room to walk around the coach in the front...and it doesn't give you a separate seating area.... just a preference...

They're not inexpensive either, but, less than the Airstream Atlas...

Less money than the Airstream, but top quality... built by people who care. Wonderful company, LTV/EEE


I just wish that they still made a B.

Awe, thats disappointing.
I'll go back to my next dream machine, the LTV wonder (all layouts). Too me it is probably there best all around model (price point, features, size etc) Please no one tell me it's a POS. I'll be heartbroken.

Roadtrek Adventuous RS1 06-19-2018 01:42 AM

It's definitely not a POS..

It's certainly beautiful... Don't expect anyone to say otherwise...

Couple of things.. I met someone who has this... ask about a spare tire..he was promised one and didn't get it...

Keep an eye on the roof.. ask about the seam warranty...

Expect 15 MPG... it's a Class C.... there's no such thing as a B Plus...

I love the space... ask what the extra weight limit is for carrying passengers and gear with all fluids, fuel, water , propane tank all filled... You might be surprised so it's better to know in advance....
