I'm trying to get my 1969 31' Airstream from Silver City, NM to NE Ohio. The Hitch wt. is 520 lbs and the total wt. is 4995 lbs. though I've taken out the fridge. Can someone please give me advice on the best way to get it to Ohio? I don't have a big truck, and I live in an isolated place, but this Airstream is my home and my father is ill and in Ohio so I very much want to take it with me as I already have a patch of land to put it on.
What would be the cheapest/safest route? If I need to buy a used truck, any suggestions? What about hiring someone to haul it to Ohio? Know of any reputable companies or people who would do it from here to OH? Ugh. I am totally overwhelmed.
Is the hitch wt. the thing to look at when looking for a truck to haul it?
Any help/education would be greatly appreciated.
