looking for ~22' dual axle 60's to 70's

I know Airstream made short dual axels for a while, but I can't remember which models and years. Your help is appreciated.

The shortest tandem axle Airstream trailer, back then, was a 23 footer.

However, the early 23 footers were single axle.

64Safari, I have a 71 tandem safari and it tows like a dream. I think the tandem must have been a option or build location on the 71 safari as I have seen single axle 71's unless the owner was wrong on it's year. Mabey the 71 safari was the 1st year to offer a tandem on a 23'. Good luck Robert

Dual axle models

I am looking for the axle ratings for some of the 20'-25' dual axle models.
Is it possible for an Airstream Sovereign or equivalent model to take on an additional 4,000lbs of equipment? What are the axles rated for on these trailers? 2,000lbs of the additional weight would be in a 5'x5' area close to the rear but not directly over the axles. Is there any chance this would be doable?

Thanks!
