"ON THE COVER: The Airstream International 23 and the 2011 Super Duty are this issue's cover story. With a 10,000-pound GVWR, this Ford truck was more than capable of handling the Airstream, which, fully loaded with fluids, food, and gear, probably weighed just under 6,000 pounds. "

A Super Duty towing a 23 footer??? What a silly match.

I'm towing a 25 footer and with full load and fluids, im getting close to FULL GVWR. Not that silly, IMO.

Shane it`s not actually what it looks like. The shots were posed and not really some sort of over sized TV setup.
