Hi, I think we could help you more if you told us more. What size Airstream do you have? Is it a 16'er or a 34'er, or something in between? What do you have for a tow vehicle? Will it handle a huge fifth wheel or will you have to buy a much larger tow vehicle? Do you also want a huge fifth wheeler or just your wife? Are you going to be campers or full timers?

What would you have to pay for a unit like that. That's awesome. Goodwrench

I think they are called Airstream Integritys. We camp at a former Airstream owners campground in Traverse City, MI. There are quite a few of them there. We are going there this weekend. There are always Airstreams for sale there.

My brother-in-law has the same truck and a 34' 5th wheel toy hauler that weighs in at about 14000 lbs. and about 13' high. After his first outing he said that the truck is not big enough and the rig scared him. Last summer they went to Florida, while there they bought a mobile home. When they returned this spring they sold the 5th wheel and resigned themselves to travel only between Ohio and Florida.


My wife said that she would like a 5th wheel because of roominess. When I asked her if she would do at least half the towing, she said that the Airstream was fine.


I would rather tow an old Airstream than anything else NEW!!!!
