If you didn't weigh the trailer yourself and are going by the Airstream listed weight I hate to break it to you but that is the dry weight without options.
So unless your trailer is gutted you probably need to add the weight of A/C, fridge, propane, anything else that was optional and anything you put in the trailer. For many years if there was a choice of two options that you couldn't get an RV without one of them no weight for either item was counted into the base weight. So unless your trailer has less in it then stock I doubt you are under 6500lbs ready to camp with empty tanks. I weighed a 73 Sovereign
31' that supposedly weighed 5005lbs it weighed 6700lbs with cooking stuff, 4 chairs, clothing for 2 for 2 weeks, hoses, adapters, some leveling blocks, empty fridge and empty tanks.
"Dry weight without options" is a mythical number unethical or incompetent dealers use to con people into buying a trailer their tow vehicle isn't rated to tow. Mythical because almost all travel trailers weighed more then that when they left the factory years ago.
