Towing capacity

Hi there.
We are thinking of purchasing an Airstream this summer.
But in the meantime, we would be renting a 19' Bambi for a week over spring break. The rental company is requiring a vehicle that can tow 5500lbs. Is that
correct for the 19' ? Also they are asking for prior towing experience. We are not in our teens, have children and drive responsibly. This is why we want to rent, so we can get experience before a purchase.

5500 lbs will do the trick for a 19' Bambi. Not sure how you confirm prior towing experience, unless you rent a U-haul trailer and tow it around for a weekend before renting the AS.

I'm surprised you found someplace that rents newer Airstreams - can I ask where?
