Skydeck ??

Does anyone on the forum own an AS skydeck?

Are they as much fun as they look like?

When did AS start making them? I saw my 1st one on Ebay last week and checked it out on the AS web site. Now there is another posted for sale on Ebay a gasoline powered model.

Someday, perhaps.

I checked out one of those Sky decks at my dealer.
They list for a measly $ 265,000.00. I thought the downstairs was not that special except for the exterior storage, plenty of that. The Sky deck looked like a lot of fun, however the down side of all of it is the maintenance that would never end.
Hey if I got one for Christmas I would keep it and thank Santa by giving him a drink and a ride on top, raindeer to. I don't think that will happen tho.

Only 18 out there to chose from!

But don't go looking for this luxurious ride on any car dealership lots. Only 18 of the vehicles were made, and the line has since been discontinued for reasons unknown.

Some more media on the SKYDECK.

Tricked-out camping trailer comes with rooftop patio

skydeck

We have a 2003 Skydeck - purchased new in April 2004- for a lot less than the sticker price. For what ever reason Airstream had trouble selling them- but we love ours and don't see giving it up anytime soon. Yes they can be a lot of fun- Auto races, beaches, Airshows, fireworks or just about anywhere the weather is cooperative. The roof deck is a great getaway place to relax or a great place to party. And since they are scarce it looks like it will hold its value at least compared to similar vintage traditional motorhomes.

Welcome to the AF Class A Threads. Limited information here on the SKYDECK units so anything you can contribute from your ownership experiences would be of interest.

We like pictures.

Welcome do you have any pictures. We would love to see more details on your skydeck.

Hi, great video, and nice, really nice MOTORHOME. Why do they insist on calling it a trailer?
