'New' 2006 Interstate (Mid-bath)
 
Well, I took the plunge and bought a 2006 Interstate. I really wanted a low miles, mid-bath and they seem to be hard to find.
I paid too much I think- but similar ones near here are just as much. Oh well, it comes with a warranty and in super condition.
We pick it up next week, and drive it home to The NW corner of Washington State.

Wish me luck!

That's what I have, had it 9 years, and still love it. :)

Congratulations, and welcome.

Thanks!
I read many, many posts about different layouts, pro and cons of each.
I saw where you mentiond how much you like this layout and some pics from Interblog really helped me out.
The wide open back end really appeals to me and I think will work especially well for what I'm hoping to do with it.

Up Northern California coast to start, then perhaps Oregon (,depending on weather) or cut over in Oregon some place.
Just wing it.


All the information here has really helped me think about what I would like.

We too have a 2006 mid bath AI and are very pleased. We were out on the Sonoma coast this morning and I am always amazed how comfortable and easy it is to drive. We have had ours a little over 3 years and have enjoyed every minute with very few issues. Learn to double check before you fuel though so you never make the mistake of putting in gasoline. You can guess how I learned to do this!

Thanks, good tip. Doesn't hurt to be double certain. (I have not had a diesel before, although lots of pre-mix motorcycles and a couple of pre-mix cars)

We will be going right by you.

Check the connections to the grey water tank. They ALL shear off. Look for InterBlog's posts on the repairs.

So it's a rear sleeper then, not a rear lounge? (Both are "mid-baths"... Airstream was a bit imprecise with its terminology in those years). Please post pics if you are ok sharing... I'd love to see it.

Yes, a rear sleeper.
I'll post up some pics.


I will check the grey and black water tanks connections (I did read the blog post, very informative)

We've had our 2005 mid bath ai for over 2 years now. It had 48k miles when we bought it and it's just got over 70k now.
We flew up to Whidbey Island in Washington state to get ours.

My brother had a place not far from the Keystone ferry.

I was born here in Port Angeles, love it here.

Love the Pacific NW. Lived on Whidbey Island for eight years with Navy. Then nine years in Seattle on a 737 project wth Boeing.

Wish I was back there again, but life went another direction for me and I'm settled in Maryland.
