Well Dennis, your unit sure does make a statement. Very neat looking and obviously rare. I must admit, though, I do like the puppy's rig quite a lot.

As for the Cummins long term relationship with Airstream I suspect they could be extrapolating off of the Thor component. I've got a buddy who works for one of their subsidiaries so I'll ask him to see what he can find out. It would be interesting to know - heck, maybe they were sneaking engines into Wally's TV's.

Thor was created at the time Airstream was purchased from Beatrice Foods. If Cummins was used in another Thor subsidiary, it would not have been associated with Airstream until Thor purchased the company since the two would not have had the Thor connection until after the birth of Thor and the acquisition of the product that used the Cummins product.

I would imagine any early association that Cummins has with Airstream would be as tugs in and around the factory or in factory equipment or in the tow vehicles in the WB caravans.

Airstream did make the blue exterior on some 1989 models. At least one of the 15 370's was also blue.

WHAT ? A 370LE without that burgundy and gray? You must be kidding ! Don't ruin my mental image of that beautiful thing leaving my driveway for the last time last month. Nothing wrong with the blue, but a 370 should look like one !

Best,

The Literature Says That "for Over A Half Century Cummins & Airstream Have Been Producing The Finest Products In Thier Respective Fields", Not That They Have Been Working Together That Long. Thanks Dennis Haws

Dennis, Just saw your MH. Beautiful rig. I just bought a 1987 345, but with the 454. The original owner ordered this coach with every available option except the diesel. II wish he would have gone ahead with it though.

There is one on my site with interior pictures. It also has a Cummins diesel but it was factory installed.

Airstream did make the blue exterior on some 1989 models. At least one of the 15 370's was also blue.

Hi guys,

The 1989-1992 ranges came in either burgundy/grey or blue/silver. My 1991 250 has the blue/silver colour scheme. I've never seen another one but there are a handful of red/burgundy 250s . Incidentally, Airstream did make a few true classic models in 1993. In fact, one of the last ones ever made was fitted out with 240v kit (in the factory). These appliances were imported from Europe and that coach which was a 1993 red/burgundy 250 with factory 6.2 diesel and 240v appliances. It was then exported to Germany. The client was (apparently) the conducter of the Wolfsburg National Orchestra...............a little known fact!
