Picked up our Airstream today

Picked up our new to us 2012 - 19ft today. Towed it from Portland OR to Puyallup WA without sway control or weight distribution hitch with speeds 50 - 70 mph with absoultly no problems. Brake controller (P3) worked great too.

will be looking for another hitch set up in the following weeks

Welcome to the forums.

IMO 70 is too fast to tow -- especially without a WD hitch.

She is a beauty!

Very nice. The tires are rated for 65 mph, you have a single axel don't push the envelop that unit is to pretty to receive tire damage. Get yourself a TPS. I had a single axel trailer and watched the tires very closely.

We too just ordered a new 19 foot flying cloud.. Delivery scheduled next week... This is all new for us... Not sure if we should get the WD hitch and anti sway bar.. Any thoughts? Would they be recommended on a small unit too?

Your trailer, and you, both deserve a ProPride set up. Go to that and never look back. Some will say it is overkill for a small unit, and it might be. But it is peace of mind. You have lots of money wrapped up in your trailer and your family and they are worth it. If you decide to go to a larger time, the ProPride will accomodate that too. We have that and LOVE it!!!
We tow a 1978 Argosy Minuet 6.7 and a 1989 Excella 29'.
