Doug(cheryl) the Anderson is not compatible for some atwood couplers. My sport has one of the models affected.

NOTE: Currently the Atwood 88007, 88010, 88555 and 88600 couplers are not compatible with the Andersen WD Hitch (all other Atwood couplers are fine).

I used to tow a 2011 27' FC with a Suburban 1500. All the vehicle ratings and trailer specs were fine; I was within all the limits, although at the upper end of my TV's tow capacity. Everything worked fine, towed over mountains and across the country. The only problem was that I was always managing the engine in any but the smoothest terrain. And many times that made towing a pain, stressful.

Looked around for a couple years, talked with a LOT of AS owners and finally settled on overkill. Just bought a 2015 Chevy 2500 diesel. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't experienced it. Towing now is such a breeze, the trips are relaxing.

I'd recommend you look at a TV where the weight of your AS is not at the upper range of its capacity. I passed on the small block diesels simply because of that. With only 2k miles on the odo so far, mileage is still settling in; but I find, traffic permitting, that I can set the auto pilot and leave it in in virtually any terrain. When on level, I'm cruising at 1500 to 1700 RPM, and grade sometimes causes a downshift to 2000+, but nothing like what I had to do with my Sub.

My $.02.

Wow....all this talk (pro and con) about towing Airstreams with a diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee is enough to make your head spin

Glad I decided to do the opposite and simply bought a diesel Airstream to flat tow the diesel Grand Cherokee. Never know it back there till I see it in the camera!! Btw...when flat towing the Jeep, the odometer is not turning either

Happy travels everyone!!
