The Clipper was an anniversary show piece for the 65th year celebration at Airstream. Every effort was put into this
development to make it an outstanding performing luxury motor home. This chassis was the heaviest built ever supplied
to Airstream with a factory GVW of 29500#. This required wheel size of 22.5" and with precise engineering, a spacious
and practical design resulted in a suburb handling unit on any road.
The engine supplied for the CLIPPER was the highest HP engine to this date installed in an Airstream. The CUMMINS CT
300 matched to the MD3060 Allison produced the highest HP/weight ratio in the industry for a "dry weight" unit of
similar size and specs.
The interior layout gave a spacious kitchen, large counter space, unmatched by even the larger units of today. Because
the washer/dryer was up front, the wardrobe area was large and the bath included a full garden tub, again, not seen in
The Oshkosh/Freightliner raised rail chassis gave the largest basement ever built by Airstream.
The Airstream Clipper was, without a doubt, the ultimate luxury cruzzing motor home of the day, and time has not lessened
the attractiveness of this home.
