Came across this ad copy today on RVTrader while browsing:

2011 AIRSTREAM CLASSIC LIMITED 34
About a year ago, George M Sutton had a lengthy discussion with one of Airstream's senior convoy drivers. The driver told how he was able to make it across America in all kinds of conditions. He told how all Airstream units tow beautifully, but his favorite was the triple axle Classic. It was his suggestion that George ask Airstream to re-release a limited run. After much consideration and discussion with other dealers, Airstream agreed to build "25".

Yes, they are a long, long trailer, but with triple torsion axles nothing compares! Smooth, well-balanced, 50% of the weight is under the floor, and the aerodynamic shape all make it the ultimate travel trailer on earth! Airstream agreed to produce 25, of these special units, this particular model is lucky #11. There are 54 dealers, so not everyone will have one. We ordered two, sold the first ( #7 ) and now invite you to buy the second, #11!

I think I'm going to outfit a nice fancy two-axle KW tractor, convert the front of a shiny new '34' with a 5th wheel pin, then mount a ball on the rear bumper so I can attach another shiny '34' to follow the 'train' down the interstate....

We'll be 'stylin' down the road with our new set of 'doubles'...only downside I can see is that we'll have to 'rent' two stalls everywhere we stop!

If runnin' one '34' is cooool, two can only be twice as cooool!

Ray

PS...has anyone seen my winning Lottery ticket?

Dont think your dream can come true any time soon. The limit on doubles is two 27 ftrs. plus the tongue between the two trailers and the tractor or TV. Not sure what the western states are doing Triples I think but here its only doubles. I think they are pulling 2 /53's on the TP and toll road . NOT SURE I AINT BEEN OUT THERE FER a WHILE.
Really dont care nuffin about big rigs anymore 45 yrs was enough.

Mike, you are of course correct about the 'length' of the 'train' here in the USA...

I guess I'll have to move over to the Aussie Outback and run some of those long stretches they allow those long 'trains' to operate...

Anyone know where I can get a 'Roo Bar' to protect the front end...Drat, I'll have to move the steering wheel across the cab, as well...eh, mate...
