The 2500 Suburban is a great choice. I've had three, an '01, an '04, and an '05. They were all great Airstream towers.

I love a Suburban! My husband drove one when we first met. You'll love it. Also, I love your trailer.

They're Bridgestone Duravis (I think) LT with E load rating... I'm pretty sure.

Yes! It's pretty much loaded. It's going to be the long distance driver eventually so creature comforts were a priority.

More than enough to do the job. Nice. Was it on the lot or did you have to order it?

Wasn't on the lot; they searched other dealers, found the one I wanted and traded the other dealer for it.

The problem now is that I've got to break it in before I can tow with it. And then I'm supposed to tow under 50mpg for the first 500 miles of towing!!!!!
