 In the summer of 2000, Shasta cut their model lines down significantly. ​ When I asked why, the staff at the plant in Middlebury, IN said Coachman was looking to reduce the number of models/​lines offered. ​ Coachman was bought out by River Forest. In the summer of 2000, Shasta cut their model lines down significantly. ​ When I asked why, the staff at the plant in Middlebury, IN said Coachman was looking to reduce the number of models/​lines offered. ​ Coachman was bought out by River Forest.
 In 2009 Forest River made the Shasta Airflyte 12' with a great retro look for one year but discontnued it because it would compete with their small lightweight trailer called the R Pod. In 2009 Forest River made the Shasta Airflyte 12' with a great retro look for one year but discontnued it because it would compete with their small lightweight trailer called the R Pod.

The Shasta also has a heater in it between the stove & sink area. Our trailer has a full bed in back with a hamik on the top a kitchen table in front that folds down to a bed.  ​ We are restoring a 1955 Shasta trailer but I cant'​find any that look like ours.  It is all alumimum with only one window on the sides that open top & bottom. ​ It has a full stove with 4 burners,ice box on the door side of the trailer.

 Carole Rietman, West Olive, Mich [just a stone'​s throw or so above Holland] bought a vintage in quite good shape - 1961 Shasta ?Aeroflyte from Jane in June of this year.  It's now in wonderful shape after a LOT of scrubbing, just needs a little TLC with some minor wood damage inside. ​ Looking to replace the "​wings"​ which did not come with it, unfortunately. ​ FIRST time out camping in it today:-), July 19,2010. Has the registration paperwork and two full tanks of propane even. Carole Rietman, West Olive, Mich [just a stone'​s throw or so above Holland] bought a vintage in quite good shape - 1961 Shasta ?Aeroflyte from Jane in June of this year.  It's now in wonderful shape after a LOT of scrubbing, just needs a little TLC with some minor wood damage inside. ​ Looking to replace the "​wings"​ which did not come with it, unfortunately. ​ FIRST time out camping in it today:-), July 19,2010.

 +Karen & Phil Henderson, South Carolina, 1971 Shasta Stratoflyte,​ 18'. It has a bathroom and a kitchen and even a closet! We have had to gut it though because a previous owner took the cover off of the vent over the propane refrigerator and it had severe water damage from sitting out in the weather for many years. ​ She is in a covered garage now, so the renovations have begun. We have none of the original paperwork, but from the stickers on the side she was manufactured in Pennsylvania. ​ The stove and oven work, but the refrigerator and water heater are dead. Going with an electric frig and a tankless water heater. Also looking into putting solar panels on her roof and a battery system just in case we decide to go off grid.
