Ask away. The OP obviously has one. Lots of us have similar ones.

Tincampers has one, as he has already stated.

But the Interstate, as with most other RVs, has a lot of features that are not specific to one model year or one floor plan. So feel free to ask whatever questions you have, and we'll try to help even if we don't have a 2006 mid-bath Interstate.

It’s what I have had 10 1/2 years, with 193,000 miles.

Tho I’m not mechanically inclined, I do have a lot of experience and there are others here who can answer those kinds of questions.

Ask away, you will get answers.

Does your mid-bath have the rear ‘sleeper’ (Long jackknife couches) or with the ‘couch’ across the back?

Our friend Jannie's is like the second one on the diagram- rear bath and kitchen and a couch on each side.

Airstream itself was somewhat sloppy with terminology. They used "mid-bath" in various pieces of literature, but really, the four T1N models were DT, RS, FS, and RD. The RS and the RD are both "mid-bath" models. The other two are "rear-bath".

You (OP) may have found this reference already, but I run the only known T1N Interstate blog (here) which, in addition to this forum, could be useful for general familiarization with the model's features as well as numerous maintenance and repair issues.

Everyone who has a TIN Sprinter Interstate should be familiar with the blog mentioned above by Interblog. The address is www.interstateblog@blogspot.com and thanks to the very capable authors you will find a wealth of very useful and in many cases unique information to make your Airstream Interstate experience much more enjoyable.
As you may guess I am a huge fan of their blog and have shamelessly stolen ideas and helpful tips which have helped us enjoy our life on the road much more.

Interesting that Airstream only shows that one for 2007, but I believe they would change mid-year if they felt like it.
What year is your base Sprinter?

Mine is a 2005, I wonder if yours was later, a 2006 model and so perhaps a early 2007, but sold as a 2006.
(Looking up the VIN will tell you).

There are certainly major differences in the models on where things are located and even how big/many of some things. The rear bath do a combined grey/black water tank, the mid bath separate. I understand some mid-bath have the ‘house’ battery in the rear, but most seem to have it under the passenger seat.

that is what knowing exactly which layout you have is important when you are asking questions, since some will be different. Even different years will be different. IB’s rear sleeper (same model as mine) but a year newer has different sink, faucets, stove top and I think furnace control. Other stuff also.

Could be. I compiled those year designations from a variety of old literature, which was suspected to be incomplete in those years. The RD model could have initiated sooner than available materials suggested at the time when I put that diagram together.

Edit: There's also the confound of the closely-related Parkway which, according to ITS available literature, definitely did not have an RD model available in 2006 (PDF link).
