Ours is a 2006 23' Safari. I think they are narrower than the Flying Cloud, definitely lighter. Unless you are looking at buying new, there are other AS that would fit within your capacity. We found a 25' 1996 wide body Flying Cloud we really liked but it was just above what I could tow. We kept looking and found the 23' we have now and we're very happy with it.
So keep looking, consider another model. I'm sure you'd rather not have the TV limits worrying you every time you get on the road
Go to the AS site and you can find the weights of all the AS models, old and new. When you see an ad for one you like, check the specifications to determine if you are comfortable with towing it.
