Are disc brakes an option?
Second question: How difficult and expensive is it to switch a used Airstream to a heavier (higher capacity) axle and disc brakes?
Within some limits, higher rating axles can be installed.
All that's needed is the trailer serial number.
To install disc brakes is not difficult.
A in depth instruction book comes with the disc brake kits.
