1961 Shasta Airflyte Reissued in 2015

On July 25th 2014 The Small Trailer Enthusiast posted this info announcing the Reissued Shasta Airflyte:
Forest River reissuing the classic Shasta Airflyte

Consider this post the first of several over the coming weeks and months to introduce you to the new Shasta Airflyte, produced by Shasta’s manufacturer, Forest River. Even though I use the word “new”, the new Airflyte will look anything but new. In fact, it will use a nearly exact blueprint from the 1961, although it will comply with RVIA specs. The Airflyte will have a limited production run of just under 2,000 units and should be available later in 2014. And this Airflyte will be a far cry from the Airflyte that Coachmen RV brought back in 2009, which happened to be featured in the very first post of this blog back in 2011: A Tale of Two Shastas | The Small Trailer Enthusiast

1961 Shasta Airflyte Reissued in 2015 - Measurments for 16'

The first time the public was able to see inside the 16' Reissue and lay eyes on her was at the 2014 Country Living Fair. Prior to that the Reissue was shown to Dealerships at a RV show in September of 2014. Friends Brynne and Beth took measurements for folks who were anxious to make their own curtains and start "glamping" their RV's. (These are personal measurements and not from Shasta)


  • Between the gaucho and the cabinet is - 16”
  • Bluetooth cabinet is 6 3/4" wide x 14 3/4" high, 2 and ¾” deep - you have to use the fader to shut off the outside speakers. Like you would do front to back in your car.
  • Rear storage under the gaucho is - 11"wide by 12"tall by 57"deep

  • Finished curtains for rear side window (the single): 25" wide, 19" long. (Shorter window)
  • Rear window curtains over the gaucho: 38" wide by 23" long each
