hello this is Patrick Botticelli with colonial Airstream in the liquid New Jersey behind me here is a brand new 2018 Airstream interstate 3,500 extended lounge has three four plans for 2018 we have extended lounge which has nine seatbelts they make a grand tour with the rear lounge sofa that had seven seatbelts and there's a Grand Tour twin with a total of two seatbelts from retired onyx interior decor. So, now your decor choices are white camel you can get either black or tan seats they have a beechwood interior decor which is more of a caramel color cabinet that comes with the moon seat.
So, it'd be a little bit brighter white more white seat than the fan that we're looking at or you could get black cultural leather they have the Columbian walnut which is a darker wood tone interior decor that comes with either the tan seats that we're looking at here or you could get the black and then they have the Tommy Bahama interior decor which is a very specific co-branded interior styling of the Airstream interstate when they go over some of the model year improvements with you. So, you could understand why there was a total of a 90 267 dollar price increase between the model year well 1765 dollars that was because now the side screen this retractable screen accordion style on the lounge extended and it's a sliding screen or on the Grand Tour this is standard now and then the rear power screen which was optional it's now standard also two on the interior there was an option for an extra seat. So, standard there would have been a shirt closet here a half-shirt closet that hung over this chair there was an option to have that removed and have the extra seat which almost every single customer did last year.
So, actually made that standard. So, those three options are now standard. So, that's the 1765 dollars that price create increased is for those options that people would have normally got.
So, the total price increases 7502. So, what did they airstream do besides make a few things standard well they have these new awning end caps and what they do is they provide a sleek integrated exterior design. So, in the previous model year the awning didn't look as integrated Airstream also has new nickel finished cabinet knobs.
So, they were a chrome style previous model year now it's a nickel style just a different look it matches the extruded aluminum cabinet structure that everybody loves an Airstream interstate very durable very secure cabinet structure also Airstream added vanity mirrors up front for driver and passenger that was a very large request from Airstream interstate owners. So, iostream did add that for the new model year the new pillow design. So, just something simple, but Airstream felt that it was necessary for this model year new style pillows for interior they're very high-end pillows and.
I'm sure you're going to use them throughout the life of the Airstream interstate one of the largest model your improvements is a new suburban Nautilus iw6 TLP tankless water heater alright assistant will monitor. Inlet temperament and outlet temp eliminates the exterior water heater door now you have this suburban vent on the exterior. So, previous model year was gas LP and electric this is just LP it does take up a little bit of your storage in the back you know another fourteen or fifteen inches, but there's plenty still plenty of ample storage throughout the back here every year extreme is improving the products and every year they take it up another notch another thing that air extreme did was multiplex wiring.
So, what's great about this is there's many touchpad areas throughout the motorhome that allow you to control lighting and systems and there's a lot of advantages to doing a multiplex design multiplexing is ability for multiple electric messages be sent over single pair of wires. So, think about a motor home how much wires are run throughout the motor home, if you can eliminate a lot of the wires by using a more advanced wiring system it's going to be advantage to the end user and a consumer actually saves weight to you wouldn't you be surprised how much wires way, if you use that much of a bulk of wire some RVs have over mile wires throughout, but allows multiple electric loads communicate through one pair of wires compared to having several wires to accomplish the same job. So, you can imagine one light switch could use up to four wires to turn it on and off now that will communicate through two wires.
So, it's as neater job of installation. So, what you could do is you could turn your battery disconnect switch on and off it's integrated into this you can lock out your step. So, right now the step is set that when you close the entry door the step goes in, but, if you're in and out everyday all day long and you don't want to wait for that step to come out you could actually just disable the step and now when you close the door step stays out, but the systems design as soon as you start that ignition key the engine that step will automatically come in.
So, you're not driving around with this step sticking out, but they do have a lock out for you you could turn on the master light switch here. I will turn on all the ceiling lights entire coach, if you didn't want to individually turn each one on you could do it from the master you could extend and retract the awning this is a three arm support awning and it does not require the arms to be detached and buckled into the body and also have the seismic sensor built into it was prevented from breaking, if you get a heavy wind gust. I'll actually roll itself back in, but these three arm supports is exclusive to Airstream and extreme work that the awning manufacturer design wanting specifically for the Airstream interstate the three arms prevents it from flapping up and down in a light breeze it's more durable, but Airstream zoning being harmless that the arms actually don't attach most motorhomes you have to buckle them into the body that means you have to duck underneath them, if you want to go by the awning and it also means, if you're trying to buckle it in and get a little breeze sometimes people slip with the buckles and they actually scratch the body.
So, that is eliminated by just offering a better awning altogether and then you can just touch the, button and let go it will bring it in there's your awning light and you could and then there's also under coach lighting. So, at night when you're parked at the campsite or, if you're parked at a parking lot you can illuminate the under sketch of the coach with these cool blue lights it's another thing that Airstream thought of to enhance their owners experience you can turn on and off the bathroom light from here the galley area you could control those separate the aisle lights on the floor and then the main ceiling lights there's a total of three solar panels there's two 100 watt panels up front and there's one in the back unfortunately there be no room for expansion, if you ever decided to do a satellite dish on the roof you would have to remove one panel, but this system that will give you a total of seventeen point three amps that's a good amount of solar gain and that another great addition when we start the generator generator has a new resonator on it which greatly reduces noise level. I should be able to outfit the previous model year with the same resonator in this cabinet there's more controls for the multiplex okay your home screen here allows you to turn the lights master lights on and off retract and extend the awning you can bring the rear screen up and down from here there's another location you can do it to.
So, you've got to hold that in you can also monitor your fresh water your gray waste your black waste and your propane there's a brand new coach it was only shipped with enough propane to run a generator for testing, but you can see your freshwater tank level zero percent gray waste is zero that's your shower and sink waste black tank is zero that's your toilet waste and the propane is at five percent there's a 12-volt tank heater underneath for your gray and black. I'm sorry your gray and freshwater tanks black tank is actually in the body above the floor. So, as long it's in this box underneath the shower enclosure as well as the interior cabin is heated that tank will be protected underneath the 12 old pads on the bottom of the tank that gives you about a 7 degree boost in the temperature of your freshwater and gray waste tank to protect you for unexpected drops and temperatures so, if you're driving through the mountains it gets below freezing you don't have to panic and start draining water out out in the shoulder of the highway you can actually flip the tank heaters on by no means is a meant for four season camping it's just for unexpected drops and temperatures you can turn the water heater on from here you could turn your water pump on every time you turn.
I force it on it will sense a drop and pressure kick the pump back on as soon as you set the faucet off and the system pressurizes the water pump will shut off completely, but it is recommended to shut the main switch off for the pet water pump here on the panel. I would recommend driving around with the water pump on or water pressure on just for safety precaution again you can start and stop a generator from here then you can see it has one point two hours on it. So, there's an error meter for maintenance and you can monitor your house and your chassis batteries at yours iller e batteries there's two absorbed glass mat batteries in parallel they're both 12-volt batteries for your house and then the chassis batter there's an engine battery under the floor mat here comes up, if you ever needed to change the engine battery you can also control all your blinds in here.
So, you can individually do each blind separate or you could just do all. So, right now we're on day shades you can see at the top. I could put the base shades down really shades inside keeps the heat down gives you a little bit of privacy.
I could put those up and then. I could switch the paddle over up top you can see there's another tab for nightshades and. I could do the same with the night.
I can have all the night come down and that really blackened out the interior and gives you a tremendous amount of privacy there is a privacy screen for a front windshield inside area that completely blacks out this area to keep the heat down inside as well as give you privacy and those are stored in this rear cabinet in that little bag and see how this cat it's all lit inside every time you open the door it turns on and off to light for you you've got a lot of storage here on the side it's really deep you could put regular luggage up here and it's all plywood with laminate there's no particle board and here's that extruded aluminum structure look at that lift there these cabinets are all bolted in place, but not held in by drywall screws or staples. So, it's a very quiet ride whether you have ten miles on the couch or 50,000 miles on it the way the cabinets are made to put together they're going to stay tight for a really long time also on this panel. I could switch it over to lighting we could do the same lighting that we controlled on this control panel we could also do up here as well okay go to heating and cooling and obviously in order to run the air conditioner or microwave you have to turn the generator on that produces electricity or run those items.
So, what. I could do is instead of flipping the screen. I can start the generator from here and once that kicks in you're going to hear the microwave turn on.
So, you know now it's producing power once. I transfer switch which is over and then. I can control the air conditioning from here.
I could control the temperature right now it's 99 degrees in the coach. I could set that down to 70 and. I could also change see there it's ready to kick on once it does turn on a little bit to sue you can also control the force enter propane furnace system on board and you can change the temperature as well as your furnace.
I'll show you the vent fan this is a fantastic fan has a thermostatically controlled fan blade multi speed rain sensor that's just to live down, if it rains and first thing what we're going to do is are a manual mode so. I'm going to push the fan lid open alright and now you just have a regular event don't open the lid when you're driving. I wouldn't recommend leaving that open when you're driving this is just for when you're parked or stationary Sun medium speed right now.
I could change that speed too low or. I whatever you do here there's going to be delay until it actually communicates to the fan this is a quick relief screen you can pop the screen off and clean it and get it out a lot of dust lint on it the fuse here just in case the family got stucked it burns a fuse out before it burns the motor out and then the rain senses right above the sticker here that sets the lid down rains. I can put it on automatic mode and then.
I can change the temperature setting so. I could have that fan run all day long until it gets down to 70 degrees right now you can see it's a hundred degrees inside this koji so. I could change that temperature up and down accordingly should be ready for the air-conditioner now.
So, let's shut the lid down fan when. I put it on cool. I have my temperature set of 68 degrees we'll give that a moment to communicate with the air conditioner take a seat here the intakes on the bottom filters in the front shut the front off the filter here side vents open your instant cool it dump there straight down 13,500 BTU and then.
I could change it from auto. So, oh no it's going to automatically run and change the fan speed and turn the fan on and off until you get to your desired temperature sometimes people want white noise all night long while they're sleeping. So, they might want to manually override it and put it on low or high there's an automatic mode once we use either the furnace or air conditioning to get you to desire temperature.
So, you set your temperature you go away for the day, if it needs to turn the furnace on it well, if you need to turn the air conditioning on it will do that as well now you can manually put it on the furnace furnace is a propane it's a forced hot air uses battery to spin the blower and it has a battery spark ignition that heats the room and heats all the plumbing behind this cabinet we're not gonna be able to get that to come on today because. I think the highest it goes is 90 degrees and 30 100 degrees inside this coach the next setting is allows you to change the screen brightness and Fahrenheit Celsius there's a little bit more settings you can change in here we'll go over that with you in a orientation class when you come to colonial for your pick up we're going to also go over the inverter system that converts 12-volt stored battery juice into electricity for a series of outlets behind the TV here on the floor another one in the back. I'm going to go over that with you we'll also go over the solar display that shows your battery percentage remaining your battery voltage your solar charge amps over time based on how much you commute accumulated since the battery was first connected and your solar and powers generator run 36 hours on one tank of propane let me seem like a lot, but it is a lot we found out an average customer for every 10,000 miles of putting on the coach the putting 10,000 sorry 10 hours from the generator.
So, very low usage there's a lot of occasions where now you really don't need to use the generator a very comfortable ultraleather the back here plenty of space behind the seat for storage for suitcases and gear let me get fold down the bed toggle switches in the same location and you can use this just the way it is and use it as like a u-shaped twin. So, you can sleep your head here feet at the bottom or you can actually jackknife these two pieces together here on this side and one on this side and they fit nice and snug together. So, what you want to do is lift up on the front get them like that and push down a very large bed service then you can also remove the headrests and there's a support that pulls out on the bottom here and you can flip down the side pieces here just extend the bed a lot of people don't utilize that as often as they think they might because they might have cargo in the rear space, but they don't want to unload.
So, this allows you to still have cargo in the back and still have a very large that as well as a queen-size bed it's wider than a queen actually by the TV we have another multiplexer system of control very similar items - what's up front large storage compartment over the television we have a blu-ray player in the front cabinet behind the front television career speakers upgrade the front speakers in the cab area as well there's a hanger for clothes on each side directional reading lights of Windows Frank out now insects streams. So, you got one here another set of windows here as well then another Bank windows up flood here in the bathroom little towel bar back to the door mirror with magnification because all fiberglass enclosure blue seams at the bottom to maintain and caulk old bathroom fan up top push up push the, button in LED lights throughout the coach this opens up you take these out and load up the conditioner body wash shampoo at home the faucet pulls out hangs up and that becomes your shower it also retracts back in there's also put a fur holder which once you load it close the door comes waterproof water resistant toilet close up created last model year it's a war with residential style still has the foot flush pushed down partially to fill the bowl push down all the way to flush shower curtain pulls across the rail it comes to the end and velcro is in place protect your towel in the backyard or prevents water fix gaping into the hallway it's also a retractable clothesline then once you get across you can lock it in place there's not meant for heavy towels just for light items try them all in the galley two burner propane cooktop the spark-ignition sink we opened earlier this is a microwave oven with a grill. So, it has a electric grill feature up top take a brown food make sure you put the lock on before you throw it down the highway.
So, that doesn't slide out or is it roar down below full extension gives you access to remove the drawer to the water pump and winterization the cubic foot refrigerator with freezer up top this is a compressor driven refrigerator. So, they instantly notice how deep it is compared to an absorption refrigerator a propane electric refrigerator is actually more efficient to use a very low amperage to run there's a lock on the top as well the dial to turn it on or off is on the inside, if you reach back in there's a drawer here above the refrigerator as the window sticker in it you can see here MSRP with options the options are just the air-ride suspension the VV air suspension was a very very popular option the Frieda police for suspension you could either get two wheel drive four wheel drive or two wheel drive with rear air suspension, if you plan on having rear passengers most of your trips holding the back i'd highly recommend going with the air ride suspension it's going to be more pleasant more comfortable ride for your passengers we're going to really enjoy that trip then the pink is an option. So, standard is the basic white commercial grade mercedes sprinter paint they do have a metallic silver bright silver upgrade which is twelve hundred sixty dollars there's also black upgrades for the same price.
So, the total MSRP is 175 972 for this particular unit there's another drawer here in the middle and then this one flips down. So, you put a sponge in there storage compartment over the chair all four of these chairs swivel and. I allow you to put this table in place.
So, they're very easy to swivel just pull the handle here and locks it pull it forward and spin it around and then this chair here on the side see that lever here that allows you to swivel this this is a recline for that chair there's also a headphone port allows you to listen to the audio from the television without disturbing the driver passenger the air suspension is automatically you can manually adjust ride height here or cup holder off to the side insulated for multi-layer and this is a premium vinyl floor on top it's all collide with laminate there's no particle board and this is a solid oak strip on the corner here solid oak on the corner here then we want to worry about the laminate chipping on the corners, if you bump into it and then a lot of overhead roof locker storage and all premium hardware there's spring tension to keep them down and a lift assist and the neat then up just push the little handles and we're done this TV lists up in the front to give you access to this compartment here for the TV switch clocks the blu-ray player - antenna booster the connections, if you decide to do a quarter of exterior satellite this side is where. I have the table legs stored and there's even a light in this compartment you turn on illuminate this compartment table leg just screws into the socket and the floor and then the release, if you're pushing a, button get a firm grip and you can twist it Wow mr. mole.
