Beautiful. Is it a DP? Does it have aluminum sides or fiberglass? We're still looking for a post 2000 Land Yacht--found one in Louisiana that would be nice but it's a little more than we can afford right now. Thanks for the picture

1997 Landyacht

Robfike……..great looking Airstream......the blue paint with gold trim does make it stand out. Here is photo of mine from almost same angle. Noticed you tow a Saturn......I have 2 tow vehicles, a Saturn Vue and Jeep Wrangler. When in tow, never know either is back there unless I look in the camera

Do both of you have the 454 with the GM P37 motor home chassis? I've seen some pre 2000 Land Yachts and wondered if it was worth it to wait until I found one with the wider stance chassis that Workhourse produced when they took over GMs motor home chassis div. And the post 2000 models had GMs 8.1 liter engine as well--called the Vortec 8100.

Mine is a diesel pusher. It was built on a Freightliner chassis and has Cummins 275hp motor in the rear. My front area under the windshield is a wide storage area and its where the coach batteries are stored. Motor batteries are in the rear left compartment behind the wheels. Overall the motor has lots of torke and tows my Jeep effortlessly. Air brakes are all around to stop this 26,000 pound Airstream.

Love..love...love it....upgrading my solar system this springs. Its widebody so feels much larger inside even without a slideout.

Our 1999 Land Yacht is the later fiberglass sandwich wall and roof construction.
The basement doors are aluminum.
It is a diesel pusher with Cummins 325hp engine and Allison 6 speed transmission.
We used to tow the 1999 Saturn when we had our 345 Classic. (That we sold) When we got the Land Yacht last year, we borrowed the Saturn back from it’s new owners to pick up the motor home.
Now we’re going to get a tow dolly and tow our 2002 Ford Taurus wagon.
Horse power and torque are wonderful things!

At the time I bought mine in 2015, I owned a diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee so was looking for an AS trailer to pull......instead I found this diesel Airstream to pull my Grand Cherokee. Unfortunately the diesel Jeep was totaled last summer and I needed a quick replacement so found the Saturn Vue with 60k miles and its worked out nicely. In December bought the Wrangler so might upgrade the Saturn to larger SUV. Plan to put it up for sale soon so if anyone needs a reliable tow vehicle, let me know.
