First, I'm 6'3" which was an issue in the Interstate. It is my understanding the Atlas has 6'6" clearance throughout the main hallway and bathroom. Is this the case? Any idea if the shower has that much clearance?

The short bed should be the killer for you. At 73 inches, it's 2 inches shorter than you are. One of the shortest beds I've seen in any class b (except the rare cross-sleeper). And the sad part is, it looks like they had room to make it 3-5 inches longer just by making the slide wider and the bed the width of the sofa.

Got a 2019 Atlas on order with the Tommy Bahama package, will be here in about a month. Any suggestions for a tow vehicle?

I thought the Atlas was a motorized RV? Maybe you mean a toad to tow behind, not a "tow vehicle?"

Welcome to the forum, and good luck!

Do you have any updates on your new Atlas? Sounds like you were very happy with it's roominess and other features.

Thanks

We are happy with the Airstream Atlas but have had some issues.
1. Air noise and squeaking around the main entrance door and we put a rubber seal around the door. This has really helped and no more squeaky door.
2. The sliding door in the bathroom would release and slam against the wall. I had to remove the door stop and made adjustments so the door stop fit properly.The rear magnet that also holds the door was bent out of shape and was adjusted.
Lots of other minor issues but they have been resolved. The Airstream Dealership is 300 miles away. The Airstream Factory been great to work with!!

At the price point of the Atlas, you have lots of competition.
I'd certainly look at all the class B's even if the name "Airstream" wasn't on top.

Love AS, but I am not a fan of this Class C model...layout and specifically the bed is an issue for me; not just the size, but the hassle of up/down daily?? For $200K+...really?? There are much more thoughtful models in same size out there using MBZ chassis, for a lot less money! Check out Tiffin or Thor models as an example.
