When I was towing for a trailer transport company we had a couple people towing with heavy duty trucks.
Several of the companies we delivered for would NOT let them tow their trailers because of the stiff suspension beating them too death

Last summer we dry camped for 3 days at Glacier NP. We were comfortable with the fantastic fans and I'm sure we could have gone a 4th day if needed. That is on 2 new group 27 batteries. There's only 2 of us so the holding tanks were not close to being filled either. That's the longest we've been unattached to either campground electric or our generator.

My early camping was done with pack and canoe, which could supply us for an easy week with stream/lake water and firewood available along the way, supplemented with fresh fish, all of which were plentiful in Minnesota and Canada. With what an Airstream can carry, that could be a lengthy stay.

Thank you for the comments.

I am the other half of the Beetlebob crew. It will just the two of us. We're even going to give up having kitties.

We have always tent-camped. We have done multiple week long trips in the Okefenokee, camping out of a canoe, carrying our own water, so an Airstream would be a definite step up for us.
