Together, Mercedes-Benz and Airstream make a great team. The 2020 Airstream Interstate camper RV is a prime example of what is possible with the joining of these two impressive brands. In addition, the new Airstream Atlas is also a great champion for the collaboration.

Mercedes-Benz chassis

When it comes to building motorhomes on a Mercedes-Benz chassis isn’t unheard of. In fact, other big names like Winnebago build over the Mercedes chassis. The chassis from the amazing lounge version of the Interstate Motorhome gives this camper RV a ton of features. For example, the 2020 model year gets all of the new grille updates, Airstream badging, and exterior style updates.

On top of that, this Mercedes-Benz and Airstream Atlas receives the 3-liter diesel power plant. This Mercedes-Benz engine delivers power to the wheels with a new 7-speed automatic transmission. The older ones, however, came with a 5-speed option instead.

Airstream and Mercedes-Benz camper RV warranty updates

In the video above, the speaker talks a little bit about the improved warranty. There is, of course, a 36,000 mile warranty for the Mercedes-Benz chassis and the Airstream camper RV. However, there is also an updated 5 year bumper to bumper warranty that covers the powertrain too––according to the 2020 Airstream Interstate video tour.

Surely, one can imagine how any amount of extra warranty coverage is a great benefit. If in the process of enjoying your Airstream and Mercedes-Benz camper RV something goes wrong, you’ll have a backup plan. Plus, anytime a warranty covers an expense is a massive win when it comes to RV repairs.
