Number of Axles AS Website

At the AS Website, The Flying Cloud is pictured with one axle. Is one axle standard regardless of the length of this model? I'm some time away from a purchase, but the FC 25 FB is an early favorite. I had a utility trailer with one axle and it waved around a bit so I added a second. Wow what a difference.

I didn't see it on the AS website specifications any mention of the number of axles at the different lengths. Is there some point at which two axles are always used on the AirStreams? Anyone know?

The single-axle trailers are just the shorter lengths. I know the 23FB is dual axle, I think the other 23' floorplan is as well, and all the longer models are dual axle.

We have the 20' trailer pictured on the Flying Cloud website and I can assure you it doesn't wave around. Additional axles are put on to carry the heavier loads of larger trailers. Presently Airstream Sport models and 16', 19', and 20' models are light enough to use single axles, as determined by Airstream engineers. The number of axles is not an option.

Regarding the utility trailer, adding the axle may have had the effect of shifting more load to the tongue, which is usually the cure for waving around, unless the trailer tongue is too short.
