I know how you feel. After spending a week at Jackson Center, and then the next day finding more things needed fixing that didn't get fixed, I was about ready to let it go at a loss as it is very frustrating. You start to hate it with a passion reserved for ex-spouses. I'm glad I didn't trade it though, and I'll tell you why.
I made another stop and Airstream while nearby a bit later, and they fixed the remaining issues. Now, the van is almost what it should have been when I took delivery and I'm happy with it (I still have a minor issue that I will fix myself). Just returned from a 7000 mile trip across the entire NE continent. The van never caused a single problem and just cruised on down the road day after very long day and all systems worked as they should.
It sounds to me that for some reason, an electrical issue of some sort blew out your electronics. About the only thing that could do that is a very serious surge (not likely but possible), maybe caused by a nearby lightning strike while plugged into the AC, or plugging into a higher than allowed voltage by someone (maybe even the dealer), or even a power issue beyond your control.
It sounds like they fixed the issues, although you have more patience than I would have had in getting it done. Since you have most of the warranty still left, if there should be any issue, it would still be covered. Realize that Airstream just outfits these vans, and that consists of running the wiring, installing the components like the microwave, generator, tanks, plumbing, etc, but MB builds the chassis and that's where the major components that can fail are and I doubt you will have a problem in that regard. In all likelihood, what's broke has been fixed, and won't fail again. There will be other things you will find go wrong, but most of them should be minor. The biggest cost item is the generator and if that works now, it likely will in the future.
My Interstate did not have as serious issue as yours out of the box, but it probably had more minor and frustrating defects. And all of them have been resolved. To sell an almost brand new Interstate will cost you about 20% or more of what you paid new-and that is not pocket change. And even worse, unless you have one custom made to your specifications by a company like Advanced RV where you can be sure it's made correctly at much higher cost, there is no guarantee the next one will be much better. Take Roadtrek, for instance. Looks great in fit and finish. No insulation anywhere behind the panels, and shortcuts you can't see, though, and won't know about until you live in it awhile and discover the shortcomings. That's not much of an improvement. It is my opinion all of the manufacturer's except those like Advanced RV that do one-offs (that charge about 1/3 or more for the privilege) take as many short-cuts as they can get by with. Airstream takes that philosophy to the limit. And it's a shame because they do use better components, and build it on a upgraded van. Quantity, not quality, is their current operating procedure. And until someone comes along, for a competitive price, and does better, that's not likely to change.
Fortunately, most of things that can go wrong are not that hard to fix.
My advice, is stick with it awhile longer and use it. See if anything major crops up while it is still in warranty (and don't worry about the little things, because that's normal). If no major issues arise, you may be glad you did not sell it, because I'm sure glad I didn't, in an emotional moment, shell out another $50,000 to trade it for something else.
And that's why I'm glad I didn't.
Good luck, in any event.

I have never sell anything like this in my life and I need some advices like how much I should ask for or where I could just go and sell it straight out without having to worry about people coming to test it out like a CarMax for RV. Thanks!
