Wheelbase

We've been towing our '74 27' Airstream for almost 12 years with a 1993 K1500 Blazer (see avitar to the left). Its wheelbase is 111.5 inches. While we never have had any instability issues, it was a huge concern of ours at first (before we towed with that setup). We have the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control, and between that, and the stable design of the Blazer, it's sufficient. I would rather tow with a full size truck, with its longer wheelbase, just for the peace of mind. But with only a few camping trips a year, it hasn't been high priority. One thing to consider, especially when dealing with shorter wheelbases, is how far the hitch is behind the centerline of the axle. The shorter the distance, the better. On the Blazer, that distance is relatively short, which helps!!
