I'm betting this thing is tipping the 6 figure retail price. Given the cost, fuel, let alone other issues we've talked to death here..... it's gonna be a niche market for them. Not like some of the SOBs that have garages.

It's been 2 weeks since I got to take the factory tour and a Pan America was on the line. It was just the shell on the frame.

Mr Ambos said that Airstream had orders for 9 of them at that time.

Two hogs?

Second one produced to date. Will easily fit 2 Hogs.

Titu.
Given that a hog (mechanical type) will tip the scales in excess of 500 pounds I am more than curious about how much weight can be put in the rear of an Airstream with this configuration.

Given all the talk about bicycle racks attached to the frame being bad for the frame of the Airstream I cannot help but wonder what one or worse, two, 500+ lb. motorcycles are going to do to the frame with all that weight sitting in the rear of the trailer.

When I saw the first pictures of an Airstream in this configuration I was more than curious; now I really would like someone to post some factual information about what Airstream has done to strengthen the frame to allow this kind of weight to be located at the very back of the trailer; and this does not even come close to asking about tongue weight with/without the moto(s) in the trailer.

As always, I am curiously yours,

Jim

Our Littlle Ikky would also fit in there

Ikky would be just right for the new Pan America. It looks like it was designed to haul an Isetta.

That is hysterical we both have yellow Isettas with flames (and Airstreams too), Brian! It would be a hoot to both pull up to a rally in our new Pan Americans, open the back and both have our Isettas come out.

Of course we both need to win the lottery first...

BEAUTIFUL car! Ikky is adorable, and I'll bet you love him to bits!

Pan America Toy Hauler

Whats with all the mystery? The Pan America has been up on the Airstream website for months! Look under Legends of Motorcyle in the Airstream Adventures section.

Airstream, Inc :: Legend of Motorcycle

The reported cost is $85.K.

It went through testing with a load in the back.

They had a guy in California that tried to buy the prototype then and now! He plopped down and opened his check book.
