This is true, you pay per axle. We have experience towing single and double axle and prefer single for economy. If you have the proper match of TV/TT and load properly you will not experience the problems some have listed here. Most of those who speak negatively about single axles never towed with one but rely on hear say and other nonsense. Yes, single axles require a more careful loading technique and the TV must be stable. We are happy with our choice especially in this time of rising fuel cost. We will be traveling long after the behemoths are parked in the back yard.

thanks to Ahab

Hi Ahab,

I fully agree with your comments about single axel economy. The load balance issues are pretty easy to live with considering how much more manueverable and economical the trailer is.
We just took our first real trip in a recently acquired 20' 1967 Globe Trotter (1400 miles) and were pleased with the great gas mileage we got driving a safe 60 mph.
We are new to the Airstream world and would like to meet other owners of vintage Airstreams from eastern Maricopa County and western Pinal County for occasional caravans and general information sharing.
