    I just wanted to let you know you were right! I'm 20 days into my 4-month long trip, and drove from Texas to Maine through mountainous Tennessee, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania--and all is well! I use the ECT power, and only use cruise control on very flat roadway. It's been awesome. I never did check the tongue weight because I couldn't figure out how to do it--the weight station I took it to didn't offer any help with that--so I just had the whole rig weighed, and then the trailer separately to make sure I wasn't pushing those limits. All good so far!!

    This is so comforting, thanks!! My boyfriend is super mechanically-inclined, and he's going to help me get all the stuff I need to make the rig safer. I was already planning on getting the brake controller--and I'll definitely let you know if I can find a harness. When you say "stabilizer towing unit," do you mean a sway controller? I'm still learning all the jargon! Thanks!

    Hi CamanoIsland! I am a brand-spanking-new Airstream owner and trying to get advice on my tow vehicle. I saw a comment from you in the forums that seemed to indicate that you tow with a Toyota Tacoma. That's what I just bought, although now I'm very worried it might be underpowered, so I was relieved to see that someone else with a 19-ft trailer was using one. Can you please let me know how it does? Where and for how long do you tow? Do you take it into mountains/elevation? The Tacoma I just purchased is a 2016 SR5 V6 with towing package--supposedly good to 6,800 lbs. Any insight you can provide would be much appreciated! Pam
