Airstream is working on the new PanAmerican, but details have been few. Here is a link to an article about the tailer with pictures and a floor layout: Airstream PanAmerican: Same Iconic Shape, New Opening | Rvs And Motorhomes Blog & Discussions at Truck Trend Magazine

Considering the fact that a 34' Classic is WAY more expensive than that, I'm not holding my breath for an $80K price tag.

there's nothing like waking up in the black hills in your A/S then taking a nice ride on your Harley

..............or maybe your Smart Car

I have a customer with a mid-engine diesel MoHo that has just such a 'garage' at the rear....where the engine normally is and he carries his Smart Car in there!!!

Saw one being made at Jackson Center (last week) while taking the factory tour. Beautiful unit- and was nearly complete to be delivered It had a booth set setup (combination of the couch and dinette) and front bedroom. 34 footer. Second one produced to date. Will easily fit 2 Hogs.

I believe that I recently saw a photo here on the forum a member with an Airstream moho with an AS trailer converted into a toy hauler. Anybody else see that?

The owner of the Dealer where we've purchased 2 AS's has seen the Prototype and says the door height is rather low and the ramp is rather steep for getting something like a Harley Dresser in without bottoming out.

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.

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.
