Airstream has unveiled the new 2020 Atlas RV built on the chassis of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 with a 170-inch wheelbase.
The Atlas comes with a full bathroom, kitchen, Murphy bed, couch, and a television.
The sides of the $238,071 van can expand out to make room for the Murphy bed.
Airstream has unveiled the 2020 Atlas RV camper built on the popular Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 chassis.
Airstream's choice of a Sprinter base is unsurprising: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a popular campervan chassis pick for both large companies like Airstream, and smaller independent van conversion companies.
In total, the 2020 Atlas has similar amenities as other luxury camper RV conversions — such as a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area — but with the Airstream and Mercedes touch of luxury. The camper RV is 24-feet long and sleeps two. However, the van can seat up to four people: two at the driver and passenger seats, and two on the couch, which comes with seatbelts.

Like a pop top camper, the sides of Atlas' body can extend out further for a more spacious interior. This extra space allows passengers to pull out the Murphy bed in place of the couch.
The 73-inch by 73-inch mattress is made of springs that allow for a "supportive" and "ergonomic" sleep, according to Airstream.
Two of the couch's seats can recline, allowing passengers to prop up with a footrest.
There are also two small height-adjustable tables that can be placed in front of the couch and the passenger seat, while its swiveled back, to serve as a dining and workspace.
For a relaxing night in the RV, Airstream built reading lights and book shelves by the couch-bedside.
Further entertainment options includes a 40-inch Samsung LED Smart TV with a sound bar can extend out of its storage unit with the push of a button.
Customers can pick from several interior color schemes, including a "Tommy Bahama" edition of the Atlas that offers a bar and custom tropical-esque upholstery and decor.
Like many non-camper homes, the Atlas has a bathroom with a medicine cabinet vanity, faucet, shower, and porcelain toilet. The latter is a deviation from the typical pull-up or portable toilets found in many camper vans.
Bathroom storage comes in the form of a closet with hangers and drawers, storage space under the sink, and a cabinet behind the vanity.
The kitchen is equipped with dual burner gas stove tops, a sink, a convection microwave, a 9.1 cubic feet refrigerator-freezer, a pantry, and a kitchen fan.
The water for the sinks and shower — heated through a tankless water heater — is sourced from the 23-gallon fresh water tank. There are also 31-gallon grey and 23-gallon black water tanks onboard Atlas.
Atlas can also be used off-grid with its 3.2-kilowatt diesel generator, converter inverter, and two 12-volt batteries.
There’s also a 300-watt solar system onboard for an environmentally friendly supply of energy.
An air conditioning and heat pump unit aboard Atlas controls the temperature inside the camper cabin. But for times when passengers want some fresh air instead, the camper also has a sunroof that comes with shades and a screen.
There's also an electronically-powered awning that allows passengers to enjoy a sunny afternoon outside in the shade.
Atlas' exterior also has storage compartments, motion-activated lights, an outdoor shower connection ...
... and cabin door steps that retract when the door closes.
In total, Atlas is 10 feet, six inches tall, and 8 feet, three inches wide including the air conditioning unit. However, the camper's interior standing height is only 6 feet, 6 inches, with an interior width of 7 feet, 4.5 inches.
The tiny home is powered by a Mercedes-Benz 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine, allowing the vehicle to achieve 188 horsepower and 325 foot-pounds of torque. In total, Atlas has an estimated 16 to 18 highway miles-per-gallon rating.
The van's dashboard has charging ports, cup holders, and a storage compartment. The driver and passenger's seats can also swivel to face the inside of the van.
The Sprinter has also been modified to include Airstream's "Air Ride Suspension" that allows the van to optimize its drive while on the road.
The 2020 Airstream Atlas starts at $238,071.
