Coachmen RV Brings Back The Classic Shasta Trailer

Coachmen RV Group has recently revived its Shasta brand with a new light weight travel trailer. While the trailer resembles the classic Shasta’s of the late '50s and early '60s, it has successfully married modern technology with tradition. Shasta is one of the oldest brands of RV, and there are still thousands of people who proudly own and use their Shasta trailers from the 1950s and '60s. There are also a variety of chat groups and clubs devoted to finding and restoring old Shasta trailers.

The exterior has the classic appeal of the old Shasta trailers, including the Z side graphic design available in 4 colors, and trademark silver wings that made a Shasta instantly recognizable. Standard baby moon hubcaps also provide a tribute to the past. Optional 5-spoke aluminum rims are available to add a modern twist. With either wheel selection, the tires are filled with NitroFill nitrogen gas that runs cooler and can extend tire life up to 30%.

The new Shasta Airflyte is constructed with aluminum framed, vacuum-bond laminate sidewalls and a one-piece fiberglass roof. This makes for a very lightweight trailer that can be towed by both contemporary and classic vehicles. The trailer's base weight starts under 2,500 pounds. Coachmen designers consciously worked to keep the weight down so that they could accommodate those Shasta aficionados who want to pair their classic car with their travel trailer.

While the outside of the trailer reminds people of a by-gone time, the spacious interior boasts a full 6-feet 5-inches of headroom and modern amenities. For instance, the galley has a portable electric cooktop and a 1.2-cubic-foot built-in microwave.

Shasta Airflyte offers three different interior decors: Classic Red, Tangerine Dream and Ocean Spray. The ceiling skylight lets in even more natural light and opens for ventilation. A retractable screen and night shade on the skylight let you control how much light comes in. Also included is the Cool Cat heat pump for air conditioning and heat which is located in the lower cabinet and ducted throughout the unit.

    WOW, This brings back the past with a strong urge to start all over again in a Shasta. Love the red interior!

  2. I have a 2007 Adrenaline 400DB question. I have problems with the Onan generator. Coachman never gave me a warranty document and they are claiming that the Coach or chassis warranty cover the generator, that it is covered by Onan. Something seems wrong here. Does anyone know where I can find the warranty document or whether what Coachman is saying is true? I'd sure appreiate some help with this.
