Welcome to Airstreaming.
1974 and older Airstreams, have many axle failures because of the composition of the rubber rods.
The rubber rods will also fail, even on newer trailers, if the trailer was parked for a long time without removing some of the weight off the axles.
The following article will teach you how to check them out yourself.
Dura Torque Axle
Towing an Airstream or Argosy with bad axles, causes many different damages to the trailer and it's components.
If you find that the axles are bad, reduce the towing speed on the way home. That will help minimize some damages.
