Congrats! Your going to love your Airstream! As for a TV just make sure you have enough power and payload. Lots of choices and everyone has their favorite but go with what works for you. Enjoy and post pics when you get her.

I don't think this will be your problem. Good hunting!

The other thing you didn't mention, and should be on your list, is a good tow system (Hensley, many others). A good weight distribution/sway system makes all the difference in the world.

A Tow Vehicle!

A tow vehicle has been selected - a 2011 Ford F350 diesel in cherry flake red with tow package, navigation system, etc. It's a lot more truck than we really need, but it was the same price as their F250s and had a lot more features. No pictures yet as we are still waiting to pick it up. I can't begin to get in it without a step rail, which they are installing now. We should pick it up on Monday. Yes, they next thing to investigate is a weight distribution/sway system. Then, finally, we will get delivery of our Airstream! I've already planned our first excursion to a semi-local RV park.

Lawfish...

Have you been south on Desert Creek Rd., off of SR-338?

We towed out 28ft AS about 6-1/2 miles up that road and camped for a couple of nights...we had to stop just short of a large ford on the creek, as the other end was at too steep an angle for our trailer...

Lots of canyon views up there! Quiet area, except for the creek flowing by...!

I believe all diesel TVs have larger fuel tanks for a longer range, also.

Congrats. I see you made a wise choice.
