This is correct. Our 34' has much more storage than our 1975 Excella 31'. Another feature I like is the external access to storage that we didn't have before. What about awnings all the way around?

Since we moved from the 70's to the 90's I also noticed that we have real wood inside versus the vinyl materials. This looks great but of course is heavier. Good luck and whatever you do, don't go to the Dark Side (SOB).

Although there are times when Id prefer a shorter tandem axle Airstream, over-all Im happy with my choice to go with my 92 Limited 34. You will find true what has been stated above, that it is actually easier to tow and park the triple axle.

When I bought mine the PO had put a receiver hitch on it. I had issues trying to back into my residence RV pad since there is an angle from the street to the driveway, so I had to have the hitch cut off. Of course that had nothing to do with the trailer itself. Im probably more conscious of turning corners as well as more careful about looking ahead to avoid sharp dips and/or turns than I was with my 31 International but Ive had no real problems.

My most memorable parking saga was in an RV park in Woodland Park, Colorado. It is heavily populated with trees and the internal roads are narrow. My wife didnt think I could put it in the spot theyd reserved for us, but I did it with very little trouble. The Texan in the big fiver next door was very impressed.

I see no evidence of rear-end sag on mine.
