I wonder why Airstream would come out with a new model based on the out-going Sprinter model. Maybe there will be no significant change to the coach area, so upfitters may not be worried about it. But I don't believe the new Sprinter-based models will start to show up until '2020 models across the class B segment.
It's more than a rumor. Here is thread from someone who saw it and took pictures at a recent Airstream rally.
Alumapalooza 9 - Airstream Forums
This thread has comment at end from someone who has one on order and expects delivery soon.
New 19’ Interstate price and layout - Airstream Forums
Several dealers have them listed but with no photos yet. Colonial Airstream in New Jersey says they have over 20 on order.
Perhaps Airstream got a good deal on buying a bunch of short 2018 Sprinters.
It was also reported in the recent MBCA Star Magazine that the rear interior of the new Sprinter is unchanged at request from their Upfitter community.
