I know I have went overboard in pulling my 34 footer with a F 350, but then again, I always feel in control of the rig.

I agree with 94tri, definitely go with the long wheelbase of a supercab or crewcab, they ride so much nicer when towing..A diesel in my opinion is the only way to go.. I've towed 31 and 34 footers with a gas F-250 with a 460 engine and finally got smart and got the diesel, there's no comparison.. The low end torque of a diesel can't be beat. My next tow vehicle will be either a F-350 or F-450 with a diesel...

It would help if you would tell us what year and model Airstream you are planning to tow.

Dont tow with a KIA. It is worse than the segioia (Toyota) Kia has had very bad luck with there brakes, when your at the service cenetr ask a mechanic without anyone around. I work for the company that has the contract of returning there brakes and trannsmissions to California's service and tech center. As far as charging you batteries taking hours with a tow vehicle, I did not experience that. maybe 20 min to top it off.
That is just my experience. As far as wireing of tow vehicle, I wired mine and used larger then reccomended guage wire. I also put an Isolator in, As a safety meassure. Didnt want dead batteries in the middle of no where. Triple A would never find me. By the way I would reccomend Triple A also. They are great for break downs, and discounts at NAPA
