We drove home last week with the ProPride an new(used) airstream in tow. The service dept. at Southwest Coaches in Irvine did a great job installing and walking us through the process of hitching and unhitching. Very pleased with the PP!

I am looking at towing with my 2004 expedition a airstream excella 1000 1988, what hitch set up will be the best to reduce sway and provide great safe towing?

Anything at 30' or more you'll need the 3P-1400.

Casa,

I am towing a 34' with the 1400# 3P and am extremely happy with the setup.

30 footers are lightest tongues

Rear A/C and the 50 Amp AC probably explain some of that. It may take an 8D or two under the gaucho to correct it
I've done some research and found the 30' wide body NON-slide out has the lightest tongue weight of any current generation Airstream.

That said, I'm surprised Airstream designed the trailer that way. That hitch weight is way less than the 10% of gross weight it should be.

I've found that if I don't make sure my gray and black tanks are totally empty the trailer can get squirley. I carry almost nothing in my trailer's trunk and load as much forward as possible. I'm going to look in to carrying my generator between the coach and propane tanks on the tongue so I can get the tongue weight up.
