Shasta to ‘reissue’ an updated 1961 Airflyte

RV D@aily Report
Greg Gerber, Editor


FOR IMMDIATE RELEASE

Shasta to 'Reissue’ an Updated 1961 Airflyte
.
ELKHART — Shasta RV will take customers back in time with the introduction of the 1961-style Airflyte at this year’s Elkhart Open House Sept. 16.
.
The travel trailer, which has been updated to comply with current RV Industry Association codes, and features modern appliances, was designed in honor of the company’s 75th anniversary. It will be a limited edition run of 1,941 trailers to commemorate the company’s first year in business. It will be available to RV dealers on a first-come, first served basis.

Continued .....

The top photo is the "Retro" 2014 Airflyte with "Wings"
The bottom photo is the legacy Airflyte unit from 1961

I think that the effort to do this is excellent and will bring back some of the good old days!

I bought a new 13' Traveleze about 1970 for $800. Let's see how much this will list for..

Very cool.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I had an old trailer years ago and remember the gas lantern on the wall with the silk mantle that used to break all the time.

Wonder if this one will have gas lighting.

WOW, I bought one of those back in 1997, lived in it for about a year, then sold it for what I paid for it (500.00). The water tank was pressurized by using an air pump to blow air into it. The frig still worked and worked really well on propane. The toliet was a real tight fit. Didn't have a shower. First thing I did was remove the "wings" on the sides, saved them and gave to next owner, the bought it to put in back yard for their teenage daughter to have a hide-out. I forget the exact year it was, but it served it's purpose.

Nope. That's against code now.

It has a LED copy of the gas lamp at last count we have over 50 of them sold already. They really did a nice job of the remake including using many of the original construction methods such as the sheet metal is hand hammered to form so it is not roll formed. They also hid a air conditioner in the couple I looked at. All in all pretty neat to see them again. They are selling as fast as we can get them in very retro look and modern camping come together.
