Default Airstream selects Timberline and Volta for E1 Models

Airstream has announced the Elwell Timberline hydronic combination heating system and Volta's 12 kWh lithium power package will be offered as E1 model options for all current Airstream Sprinter Touring Coaches. The E1 system provides all electric and diesel capabilities and replaces existing propane, inverter and generator components.

Airstream will offer E1 versions of the following models: Interstate 24 GL/T, Interstate 19, Interstate 24X, and Atlas (Class C marketed as B+).

Elwell's Timberline combination heating system is becoming dominant among OEM Class B manufacturers for "All Electric" (ie. no propane) vans and now includes Airstream, Winnebago, Tiffin, Jayco and Entegra Class B units.

Timberline is based on Russian diesel furnace, they will have to have ways to either bypass sanctions, get them from Ukraine or switch to German manufacturers. Time will tell.

It is a $24,700 option. With all top options the new Airstream Interstate 24 models have MSRP about $290,000.

Howdy,

The Grech Strada Ion has the Timberline water/heat system as well as Lithium batteries and 1260 amp hours with no propane. The air ride system is also standard on all models. MSRP is now $235900. The stealth exterior appearance is also striking.
Customer support is excellent.

I'm starting to feel a bit better about how much our custom build is costing.

As am I about still being happy with our 07 Roadtrek. When we start talking multiples of what we paid for our house I think we would have a tough time justifying it, even if we found something we liked.

Prices are driven by market acceptance and business needs, not by cost, but. I, and many other DIYers understand base costs of conversions which gives us cost grounded perspectives on some of these gouging prices. Before I ventured to DIY conversion we scouted the market, the fit and finish of the Airstream Van was just appalling. White upholstery supposed to force me to focus on it but a 1Ē skewed pantry door was just a minor fixable detail. If Airstream didnít improve their workmanship their profiteering prices are unjustified.

If would decide to get another camper van, primarily due to MB issues I would:

1. get another Sprinter Passenger Van with gas engine and transfer all of my floor and overhead modules to the new van. For reinstallation of tanks, water heater and plumbing I would hire someone,

2. or, set a maximum price at $100K and get a new camper van.
