Hey, Protag- when you go to Foley Friday check it out. It is the first black Interstate just inside the fence on the left between the showroom and service department.
Then- post your observations about this awesome ride.
In all reality it would make an awesome family car and weekend camper van, but we will probably stick with our plan to get a Honda Odyssey next- with a built in vacuum and cooler-

With the cabinet in place (as I suspect it is), the passenger-side "third row" seat isn't usable as a seat, and is only there to fold out into a bed. Airstream calls it an ottoman instead of a seat, and it has no seat belts. I use my ottoman as a convenient place to store pillows and bedding, wedged between the seat cushion and the hanging cabinet above.
That's what I figured that the layout was also. It was just that the Airstream website wasn't showing that new floor plan.

This may be the one:

2014 Airstream INTERSTATE 3500 LOUNGE NON EXT Class B Gulfport, MS Foley RV Center

Interesting, and I get it, but I would prefer having that extra storage.

This allows for a fair amount of room to maneuver about and gives the dogs a much larger space. On our way home from NJ got a warning light indicating we had 10 more starts before shut down??? Whatever that meant, I now know I had at least 10 more starts before disaster. The indicator light was unusual to say the least looking something like three arrow hovering over water. Called Colonial on 10/31 and they stated sounds like a DEF problem and to take it to a MB dealer. At this point I now have 6 remaining starts to shutdown. I can ramble on but i'm sorta boring myself. The MB dealer in Catonsville, MD was outstanding and after a overnight stay the repair in (software) was made. In short the final test (Dynamic Test for SCR System) was not completed and the system was shutting down to prevent any damage. This test as best as I can describe is used to measure that the proper mount of DEF is circulating properly. Test complete all is well. Thought you folks might find this helpful
Congratulations!! Its an awesome ride. Just took ours up to Vermont last weekend to finish up the engine break in period. Comfort is amazing. When comparing the level of fatigue on a 700 mile (roundtrip) ride between the Airstream and my old class C, the Interstate left me half as tired than driving the Class C for the same distance.

Bummer about the DEF issue though but tank you for the technical heads up.

That is what I thought the floor plan would look like with 9 passenger seating. I am surprised that they still put a TV up there since it looks like it would be a head knocker for the passenger sitting there. I too value the extra storage over the extra passenger capability.

On the 2014 model the bathroom wall kick out has been modified to allow for a few additional inches without taking up any additional aisle space. This modification now allows you to study your owners manuals with a bit more elbow room.

Would you be able to post a couple of pictures of the inside and outside of the 2014 wall kick out?

8 in a sofa/lounge model with the hanging wardrobe.
7 in a sofa/lounge model with the hanging wardrobe and full-height closet (like mine).

So- all of them have mega passenger capacity.
I think an Interstate would be a good family car/soccer mom mobile.

Not all of them; those with the single beds in the rear can seat either 3 or 2 (with belts).

Our rear single benches, which make into a queen sized bed, easily seat 3 on each side/bench, with seat belts, if that is what you mean by single beds. We have never used them that way,

We can comfortably carry 8, front and rear.
