Retro Shasta Trailer

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine


Shasta RV has reissued the 1961 Airflyte, a travel trailer complete with throwback “wings,” Hehr jalousie windows and wide white sidewall tires wrapped around color-matched wheels. The Airflyte is available in three color choices inspired by the original 1960s line with polo white as the main color; the lower sections are painted in matador red, buttercup yellow or seafoam green. Inside, the two-tone 16-foot-3-inch-long trailer has plywood cabinet doors finished in birch with a shellac coating, a dinette that makes into a 54- x 76-inch bed, three-burner range, microwave, a rear-lounge gaucho couch that pulls out for sleeping, and coordinated color blending throughout. There’s storage under the dinette with outside access. The Airflyte’s body width is 7 feet, and it weighs 2,400 pounds. Standard are a 5,000-Btu air conditioner and 20-gallon water tank. Lighting inside and out is from 12-volt DC LED fixtures, including the ornamental two-position “gas lamp” mounted on a cabinet above the table. MSRP is $17,000 to $17,200, plus freight.

Shasta also manufactures the Oasis travel trailer in lengths from 21 to 30 feet, weighing 4,188 to 5,670 pounds, which can be towed by half-ton trucks and SUVs. MSRPs range from $12,000 to $19,000. Tipping the scale on the other end is the Shasta line of Phoenix fifth-wheels offered with one to four slides, residential-grade furniture and vaulted ceilings. Floorplans range from 27 to 35 feet, and MSRPs range from $34,000 to $47,000.
