Some where, who knows, I have a photo of that model, showing the tongue jack, totally retracted, and the trailer still level.
Spooky. And it wasn't even Halloween.
That's when we learned Airstream came up with the flat steel bar addition to the inside of the A-frame.
Surprisingly, that added enough weight to make the front end behave in a normal way. Still not enough tongue weight, but enough so that the tongue jack stayed on the ground.
