I have a 2006 GMC Serria with 5.3 liter 3.73 gears/locker and it does real well with 27 foot overlander. Have not had to pull throught lots of mountainous areas though. Southeast Oklahoma has some mountains but not hard to pull trailer over.

Welcome to the Forums! You might also consider contacting some of the WBCCI Units & inquire about units for sale. There are several WBCCI Units near you & some of the members are quite elderly & getting out of the camping mode. And, yes, do come to Blanco in December--you'll meet a great group & get tons of ideas.
And, when you find the perfect trailer, consider visiting the Airstream Park in Minnesota--it is lovely & usually cool in the summer.

Welcome Fr.Jeff,let me suggest that you and the wife attend the Texas International Ventage Ralley in Conroe, Tx in Feb, 2010. There will be a wide range of Airstreams on hand for you to view and inspect. Some go back to the 50's and up to the 80's along with newer one. Check the Rally schedule for time, date and location. If you make it to Conroe stop by and say hello, Our numbers are 9279 and we have a 1975 31 footer. Learn all the thing to look for and the things to look out for when buying an Airstream. I can speak for experance to take your time and really inspect each AS over yourself carefully, it will save you money and a lot of work. Happy Trails.
