PLATTSBURGH — New models of an American icon are now available from a local business that has doubled in size within the last year.
Nomad Airstream President and Sales Manager Steven Clement said they are now an authorized Airstream dealer with exclusive rights to the New York and Vermont sales territory.
“We’re getting calls from all over,” he said.
Market holds promise
He and CEO Guillaume Langevin see great potential for the market, particularly the Burlington area. Clement said it is difficult to find Airstream trailers in Canada, so they even expect to have customers from the Montreal market.
“We know customers will be coming down,” he said.
The company has already received some new 2013 inventory.
The International Signature and Serenity series includes models from 19 feet to 30 feet. The Classic Limited line has model lengths of 27 feet, 30 feet and 31 feet, and is the flagship of the Aurstream line.
The Airstream Eddie Bauer edition is available in 26-foot and-28 foot lengths. It features a wide rear hatch to accommodate outdoor gear such as a kayak or bicycles.
“It really fits in with the Adiorndacks,” Clement said.
Models very popular
The International Sterling edition features design innovations from Christopher Deam and is available in 26-foot and 28-foot lengths.
The Airstream Sport line is available in 16-foot and 22-foot models.
The Flying Cloud line has models from 19 feet to 31 feet. There are 15 different floor plans.
Clement said it is the most popular Airstream model in North America.
Comfort and style are hallmarks of the Airstream brand, he said.
Some units include amenities such as LED lighting, porcelain toilets and Sealy pillow-top mattresses. High-end stereo and flat-screen televisions are also popular.
Water filtration systems are standard on all models. There is also a gas-detection and shut-off system for added safety.
