That is a Pinnacle motorhome, several were built by Thor. Supposedly these were the precursors of the Cutter line. They are not Airstream-branded RV's.

I'm sure you've seen or heard the Boar's Head deli meat commercials, where the guy behind the counter tries convincing the customer "It's almost like an Airstream". Err, I mean, Boar's Head....
