Anybody here pull their Airstream with a big truck?
I used to drive tractor trailer years ago & have a few old cars & was considering a vintage Peterbilt or Kenworth single axle tractor to pull our '66 Safari. Would look cool, fun (for me) to drive, pull easily...but maybe beat the camper to death! I see a airsafe hitch in my future either way as my 2000 Dodge 2500 is not exactly the smoothest ride. Any experience here? A photo of the rig would be fun also!
I don't have a heavy truck for a TV, but I can speak for the Air Safe hitch. I bought one after a few trips with our new trailer.
The older trailer with the rear twins never really looked too disheveled after a day of towing. But, with more stuff stowed at the rear of a trailer with a front bed, a day of interstate travel had things looking like they had been in a dryer.
The Air Safe made an obvious improvement.

Don't have a HDT but we do have a MDT a C5500 Chevrolet crewcab with a hauler bed that we use to tow our 5er and also our 29' Airstream Excella. Don't even know the AS is back there after towing the 36' 5er, and I get alot better fuel mileage towing the AS.
No practial or technical information, but I think one of these old Mack Bulldogs set up correctly would make ONE HECK of an eye catching TV. Maybe setup some kind of storage compartment where a sleeper would be and enjoy the view.
This pic was at a truck show in Cherokee NC last year. They had a nice showing of classic old trucks.
If one wanted to see customized haulers, about Labor Day week-end the Iowa 80 truck stop in Walcott Iowa has 100 plus there on display. Some are to see and some for sale. I believe the truck stop is the largest in the country. Check it out.
