New hitch

Thought I would add that I bought a new Husky 10000# Weight distibuting hitch. Also, kitchen/living room arear is stripped to the walls, after washing 20 odd years of filth off, we started primiming the front interior walls. Without starting a new thread, I read in my owners manual there was a kit for adding beds above my twin bunks how does that work out?

Thought this was interesting:
We were on our way to Atlanta on I-75 Tuesday and spotted what looked like an 04' Cadillac towing a tri-axle Airstream or Avion. It was in the opposite lane so I didn't have time to snap a pic, but the car seemed to be towing the trailer fine about 65-70mph. The only additions I noticed were aftermarket mirrors on the Caddy. I think all the newer caddys are front wheel drive.

Seven years later...

We are planning to do almost what you did Cookeville 34. We bought a 1994 Buick Roadmaster, with the factory tow package. Will tow our seventies 24" Airstream with it. However, I would like to upgrade the Buick somewhat for extra safety. We were advised better shocks and tires, a better hitch (the car has an older 3,500 rated hitch) and maybe a sway bar for extra stability.

The mods were advised by a great guy at Can-Am RV, and they would sure be able to do the mods for me. However, they are in Canada, some 10-12 hours driving from where we are in New York. I would go there if I have no better option, but if anyone knows a reliable address to do this kind of work closer to NYC that would be a great help.

Cookeville, any update on your experience with the larger trailer?
Jack
