Welcome to the AirForums! And welcome to the exalted ranks of Airstream Interstate owners!

I don't have a 2015, so I can't answer your question. However, if you would care to enlighten us with more details regarding the problems you have experienced, you're more likely to get constructive feedback.

It's axiomatic that any Airstream that rolls out the door at Jackson Center on a Monday is going to have more problems than any other day of the week. You might have gotten a Monday van. But take heart, all problems are repairable, and you still have a full warranty to get it all taken care of.

Problems w/ an AI are a no-cost option that comes w/ all of them.

Welcome to AirForums! Interstates are built by humans without aid of high tech robotics so there are bound to be issues. Let us know your specific problems and we can offer help if you want it. Many of us have had issues, mostly minor and fixable either by the dealer or by yourself if you are so inclined.

We picked ours up Tuesday, so limited experience to date. Getting the current software installed on the Kenwood provided the first diversion. Before updating pretty much nothing worked.

Sometime after getting it home we lost the ability to run anything using propane. The fuse that controls the propane valve, propane detector, refrigerator, and oddly the aux battery display had blown. Interactions with two different dealer service departments was not encouraging, but at least we didn't have to take it in for service just to track down a bad fuse. The big replacement fuse kit comes in Sunday delivery.

I found this forum the day after signing a purchase agreement. Many thanks for all the posters that have given us a great head start on the journey we've started. We're heading to FL for 4-5 days next week, so I'm sure I'll have more appreciation for your insights soon.

Another newbie in the same thread! Welcome to you as well!

I'm practically right next door in Metairie. If you think you might be interested in joining WBCCI, I'm currently 1st VP of the Greater New Orleans Unit, and I know for sure that they welcome Interstate owners because I am one.

Welcome to you both, and may present issues resolve.

Ours had some, too, but now at 160,000+ miles and couldn't love her more.

Is it just a coincidence that you are from lemon city?

Like others have said, let us know what issues you have. We may be able to help.

I have had very few problems to date and miles of smiles.

Didn't the dealer mention that you are the quality control inspector Airstream relies on?

Sometimes......I suspect these post-a-broad-complaint-and-run folks are competitors, trying to dis the Airstreams to sway favor to theirs.

I mean...."zingara" from "Lemon City"?

If someone with legitimate complaints took the time to start a thread, you would think.....they would be back.

I could be wrong, but Class B's are becoming more popular, and competition stiff, it seems.

One of the things we have, here, aside from beauty, is the Airstream badging, which seems to have become much more coveted, in and of itself. You don't hear that about the SOB's.

Love mine, hope to get another 160,000 miles on it before I'm through.

Thanks for the "Monday van" humor- we need a good laugh about now! Unfortunately though, you may be correct!

Bought our Grand Tour a few months ago and shortly after set out on our maiden voyage, planning on a month of exploring, relaxing and visiting. New to RVng and really excited to be on the road in this beautiful machine- waited a long time to do this.

Here's a shortened version of the "fun" we've had from the morning before we started out and throughout our trip until we returned home and parked it in the driveway:
Water pump failed, flooded coach (fixed now); leaks in roof, did serious damage to interior; solar panel issues; electrical problems- lights, tv, cam/gps system/ plugs, etc; refrigerator doesn't stay cold (freezer's good, though!);serious generator total failure; and other stuff that seems minor at the moment.

Wish we'd known that this forum existed before we bought! It's really great that people share all of their knowledge and are helpful and supportive, especially for new RVers! Only found it by a search when we started looking to see if anyone else had problems! Now trying to figure out how to deal with all of this and posted here to see if anyone else had problems this serious and how they ended up.

Thanks, too for the humor, but obviously some truth in your statement! Wondering how many more no cost options we'll find that we didn't know we had....
