Help with road worthy check before towing Cleveland OH to Austin TX

Hi! I purchased a '62 28' Ambassador in Deerfield OH (an hour out of Cleveland) and need to have the axles and bearings checked out before I arrange for shipping. It is going to be shipped a fair distance, to either LA or Austin TX, and I need to make sure it will make it being towed or otherwise arrange for it to be put on a flat-back or the like. Any suggestions of who could perform a check like this would be greatly appreciated as I'm not at all local. Thanks!

I don't have any knowledge of that area either, but may I suggest you consult the seller for the name of an RV dealer in the area that can do the inspection.

Here the best trailer guy sells and services horse trailers. He is the best at anything to do with trailers . . . hitches, tires, brakes, lights, and break away wiring.

His only job is to get trailers down the road. The RV guys charge a lot more and they specialize in gas cooking stoves.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

I've seen 2 Airstreams in the area of Deerfield. Was it the one with fancy painting or was it the plain one? The one with painting looks like it has been towed more recently than the other one.

It's a plain one. It was in a shed, though I'm not sure at the moment...the previous owners haven't used it for a year and when they vacationed in it they only went a few hours away, so they recommended a check before hauling it across the country.
