Airstream announced that its popular Interstate Class B motorhome model will be available in Canada beginning in Spring 2013. The Airstream Interstate, built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, claimed the spot of number one selling B-van model in the US for 2011 and through September 2012 according to Statistical Surveys Inc.

The Interstate boasts over 50 best in class features that distinguish it from its competitors. As a result, the Interstate has experienced tremendous growth in the US market, commanding 17 percent market share through September 2012.  Interstate sales are up 72 percent year over year in the United States, leading Airstream to discuss opportunities for expansion in Canada.

“The Interstate offers a unique blend of luxury, design and performance that we are confident will do well in the Canadian marketplace,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “We see tremendous possibility in this region and look forward to a very active spring, when our Canadian customers can hit the open road in the Interstate for the first time.”

Airstream plans to meet with potential Canadian dealers at the 50th annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky, November 27-29. At the show, the company will also debut a new nine-seat option for the Interstate, at the request of many dealers.

“As a result of our success in the United States, we have had several inquiries from both dealer and retail customers from Canada,” said Airstream General Manager Tim Garner. “We believe the combination of best in class product with progressive dealer programs will drive similar success in Canada and we look forward to discussing these opportunities with Canadian dealers in Louisville.”

About CanaDream

CanaDream is a Canadian RV tourism company that utilizes its proprietary business-to-business web-enabled system – – and its business-to-consumer on-line Internet reservation system – – to operate and expand its network of RV rental locations across Canada.

An RV dealership has helped spearhead an effort to send $80,000 worth of portable generators to Haiti, providing much needed electricity to areas where power is scarce.

“One thing we do have, which they need, is power supply,” said Jeff Redmond, general manager of Bucars RV Centre, in Balzac.

The idea of helping in Haiti’s relief efforts came to fruition after a lunch meeting of about 20 members of RV Care, Redmond said.

RV Care consists of 49 independent dealers Canada-wide, and is the largest RV dealer network in the country.

The RV dealers were able to collect more than 50 mobile generators to send Haiti’s way. Redmond said the generators were made available at a cut-cost by their partners, Coast Distribution.
