If it seems like most of our motorhomes
are loaded with features, you’re right. It’s part
of our “Value by Design” way of doing business.
You see, we become more efficient when we
offer more of your favorite amenities standard.
Construction is more streamlined. And you get
more motorhome. For less. This is just one
of the ways we design more value into every
motorhome we manufacture.

In addition, unlike many of our competitors who produce motorhomes, towables and
other products, the sole focus of our business
is Class A motorhomes. We believe this simplifies our manufacturing process and helps
us focus on doing a single job exceptionally
well. Doing that job well also means using only
high-quality materials, components and stateof-the-art construction techniques. All told, it’s
what we call, “Value by Design.”

CHASSIS
Quality construction starts with the chassis.
And Astoria uses only the finest: a powerful, 300-hp Cummins® engine and a rugged,
raised-rail Freightliner® chassis with push
button Allison transmission with air ride and
air brakes.
Utilities
Astoria’s heated holding tanks and
fully contained plumbing systems
let you travel in almost any season.
Tanks are mounted horizontally for
easier servicing and maintenance.
Value by Design.
It’s our driving force.

Value by Design. It’s more than a slogan;
it’s our way of delivering more motorhome for
your money.
Angled Supports
The angled supports in our sidewalls
provide additional stability and
strength.
Steel Firewall
Aluminum Framing
All wall openings for doors, windows and other
components are framed in aluminum tubing with
welded joints. This strengthens the coach body. The
5 1/ 2 in. welded aluminum header provides
additional strength in slide room openings.
