Yep... it’s still an ongoing problem. Our vent hood fan shuts off after a few minutes using only one burner to boil water.
As DavidKl mentioned, it’s honestly downright offensive that Airstream is sending units to dealers with so many issues. Quality control at Airstream is horrible. I’ve had my factory ordered brand new Airstream for a month and my punch-list of issues is far too long. I get it, it’s an RV and there are going to be issues. But come on, Airstream! I realize that they’re slinging out units and can’t keep up with demand but something has to change. Going into my purchase I knew that Airstream was struggling to keep up with demand, I tried to make it clear that we did not want to rush Airstream because I wanted them to get it right the first time since they’re handcrafted. But here I am, unable to boil water among other inexcusable quality control issues.
I hate to be so negative. But it’s hard not to when I spent $80k on a product only to feel like I might have made the biggest financial mistake of my life. Anyway, that’s the end of my rant. Hopefully it serves as caution to others considering buying new. I do take responsibility for not doing as much research as I should have and putting so much faith in the product that I overlooked a lot when taking delivery.
Kittmaster - thank you so much for the info you’ve posted so far. It’s going to be very helpful to a lot of other frustrated Airstream owners. I really appreciate the knowledge you all pass on to us here on the forums. I must say that the Airstream community is one of the reasons that I am happy with my purchase. You guys rock!
I pray that as time goes on, Airstream customer service and dealer network make things right for those of us having these frustrations.
