I have seen one from middle Ga. set up as a passenger van and hauling children and it was rated as a 3500 but no marking as to driveline.

Is the Mercedes onl;y offered in the Airstream ??
when I looked at the web site it didn't indicate the types of drivelines available

I went over to the freightliner site to check the drivetrains available as well and I came accross an interesting Truck. It's called the Argosy
The US Sprinter web site appears to be down so I could not confirm driveline.
I went to the
another site that has the sprinter on it. It does list a Gas engine and it does list several diesel options. Not sure what is offered on the US models after seeing that. This site is in German only. You can fight your way through it and get an idea. could translate.

the "Freightliner Argosy optional staircase-style steps" feature was interesting.

Enjoy the unexpected

new classic mh

Evidently the drawings are being finalized in the next week or so, and then Airstream engineers will be pondering just how to build what it called a "challenging" project. I am sure we all will be interested to see what they have come up with.
I hope one of the challenges the engineers will address is the addition of a turboed diesel to the engine line. Or even better, a diesel/alternative fuel engine. That would make the new Classic a real keeper and not obsolete even engine-wise in 30+ years.

Might also persuade me to get a mh mortgage and become a full-timer!! Now would that be hard to take?
