I'm looking to take the plunge and purchase a 16, any advice?
I've read lots of threads but most are a year old.
Anyone out there care to comment on any recent experience.

Posts: 138 close to home. Also, buy a second trailer from a more reliable brand, as your Airflyte will often be sitting at the dealer awaiting repair.

Yes, the 1961 Reissue is limited to a production run of only 1941 units (across all units and lengths), to commemorate the year that Shasta was founded. All new units should have been completed before now, and what's available is unsold units or used. AFAIK, all units are model year 2015.

See this post from Kimberly:

1961 Shasta Airflyte Reissued in 2015 - Reissued Shasta Airflyte 19'
2011 Flagstaff 831 RLBSS

I've just ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.... I will keep you posted.

i would research research research the camper and your dealership!! make sure the dealership is close and its a good dealership!!! talk a LOT about how the warranty work will be handled and make sure the team in the service departments are on the same page with each other and also take a few folks with you that can help you spot anything that needs fixed before you buy and leave the lot... lots are having trouble getting warranty claims oked by shasta and has been a ruff year owning one ... make sure all the recalls have been addressed and i would read every thread every post and go on facebook and join a group called Shasta Glampers In the Know for truthful real hard truths about problems they dont kick people out for talking about the problems of their campers even if it has been talked about 1000000 times they still will listen and try to help you by telling you what they did to fix their problem which a lot of different campers have had the same problems and there is another forum online i think its called airflyte hacks read all you can on the camper most of the time i wish i would have stayed to tent or hammock camping, but i hope that shasta will finally get the work oked to get mine fixed and i can camp and be dry and if i needed to use my wetbath and the ac will actually work to keep the camper cool we will see if the ac mods work once the GA heat kicks up ...
