Coming off the boat, the gas bottles will be gone or empty.

I have a 72 Overlander and just went through the hassle of determining the pin outs from my 03 Tahoe to the Overlander if you'll send me a PM I'll be happy to scan and share what I found. Unless someone has required the trailer side a standard modern umbilical will not work for you without modification.

I live in Cornwall, UK, and have owned and maintained an Airstream in the USA for 14 years. My working life was in law enforcement.
I would not do what you are planning. There are so many pitfalls. The condition of the tires and brakes, the lack of weight distribution, the lack of compatibility of the electrics, the unknown state of the frame, the illegality of the brakes, are just the start.
I would transport the Airstream on a low-loader as close as possible to the farm, and then drag it slowly with the tractor the last part of the journey. You can then sort out all the issues at your leisure. I believe you will be far less stressed, and much safer, and you will not risk prosecution and/or a serious accident.
