What is this?!

Here is the description from craigslist.... (It just polished aluminum not stainless, right? But I don't think I've seen metal skin like this on a 90s motorhome before?)


Used 1995 Airstream Classic 36ft Class A Diesel Pusher Motorhome! - $114990 (Grand Rapids)

Take a look at this stainless steel body beauty! 230hp Cummins diesel engine with roughly 38k miles. High polished exterior. Closest thing to a chrome motorhome that you can buy! Airstream quality. Hardwood cabinetry. 2 AC units blow cold air. Runs and drives well. Call Evan at 616-890-8397 for details on this once in a lifetime chance to own this beautiful coach!

Apparently they're rare, but it's not the only one I've seen:

The owner is just proud of his unit and wants to show it off. He doesn't really want to sell it.

Looks good in the pictures.

Pardon my ignorance - but what do you call this and what years were they made? Is this a land yacht?

I don't think it is a Land Yacht. I think it is a Classic.

Ok doing a bit more research it seems the land yachts are fiberglass and the classics are metal?

Definitely a Classic. You can see the name badge just below the passenger-side front window in one picture.

This is what my Interstate wants to be when it grows up!

Side note, isn't it kind of pretentious to name a vehicle a Classic, rather than allowing it to become a classic by standing the test of time? So, would that make it a classic Classic?

I don't think I'd trust a seller of a 2x overpriced moho when he doesn't even know it's made of aluminum, not stainless steel.

In the last 6 months or so I've seen a scrupulously-maintained one listed for $40k and an always-covered one asking in the low 50s just here in North TX. While that polish job might have cost $15k, I don't think it doubles the value.

Are these units constructed the same way as the trailers - the semi monocoque design with inner/outer skin and ribs? Or is there more framing?

I'm also kind of fascinated that these diesels are "pushers" -- seems like that is a lot of weight and it is cantilevered pretty far back! And what is above the engine, a bed platform?

Fred's archive has several examples of '95 Classics, both gas and diesel:

Here is a link to my 36' motorhome page.
ViewRVs.com - Airstream Classic 36 Class A Motorhomes

If it has the tag-axle, it is a gas unit. The single-axle units are the diesel pushers.

Its a Classic.
It was made between '93 and '97, and is Aluminum, as the earlier models were.
