Also Mike Leary I like what you said about the new AS. I like mine cause it looks like an
Air Stream. When you travel down the road everybody knows that this is an Air Stream coming at them.
James, you have 3 temp ratings to choose from when it comes to thermostats. Keeping it warm is great for the winter but I just changed out my stat for a 180 degree today. When it really gets hot in the summer months I go right to the 170 stat. Heat is the enemy. Don't let it get too hot or you'll cook the exhaust valves, and you're transfering heat back to the tranny as well.

Jagtag,
The A-39 you mentioned is a two foot longer version of the A-37 that I have. They are very good coaches. I have not had any trouble getting parts or service. If you would like any detailed information let me know.

Thanks Dean, any info is greatly appreciated. I have never owned a motor home so this is a big jump for me. I plan to do something in the near future since I am reaching the golden age of retirement.

The A-39 is a good coach. The all electric feature is not an issue. The differences as I see them are, no propane to deal with and the appliances are normal house types not special RV units. I am sure that there others but these are the ones that come to mind. The coach itself is well made and sits on a Freightliner chassis, a large company with many service locations. It has plenty of power for hills, 400 hp Cummins diesel. If you would like to review the owners manual it is available on line at the Airstream web site. Airstream, Inc :: Home You said this is your first motor home. The only potential issue is one addressed by GlenCoombe earlier is that of a unit sitting on a lot for a long time. This is something you may want to address with the seller. Perhaps GlenCoombe can give you some hints as to what to look for.
The coach will give you many years of enjoyment. My wife and I have had our A-37 for almost 3 years now and are taking it to Alaska this summer. If you have any more questions let me know.

Our 2005 is great also. Bought it used, (very little) and still under warranty in August, 2007. Airstream was great about servicing the warranty. Never batted an eyelash about standing behind it. Also had a small problem with the fan belt that Workhorse took care of. We can't wait to get out this spring. Like TerraYacht, we have just sat in it in our driveway at cocktail hour. We get lots of nice comments from fellow campers. We tow a Wrangler behind it and hardly know it's there. Happy trails.
