New is a relative term with Airstream.  Back in 1981 the design was changed to be more efficient in terms of real estate space.  Over the years the shape and width of Airstreams has changed.  Older Airstreams are narrower and have a more rounded shape, thus reducing interior volume.  In 1981 Airstream began to produce wider bodied trailers, increasing widths from 96″ to 102″ wide.  In general, older Airstreams are also lighter weight, although beginning in 2008 the new Sport Editions are designed with an eye towards weight reduction.  If you are looking for more real estate space in your Airstream trailer, then stick with “newer” models.  I almost laugh when I talk about a new Airstream being 31 years old!  Most other travel trailers have long since retired after 30 years.  Not so with Airstream!
