    Thanks for your post re the two recent rollovers with Airstreams. I'm still in the search stage of Airstream ownership, but am closing in, so am keen on educating myself. Your post doesn't say whether speed was a factor in either rollover; and, what role did driver error play? One was a rental--perhaps inexperience was a factor? I now tow a travel trailer, approx 3,000 lbs fully loaded. I have never had the slightest problem with sway or braking control. But, I rarely exceed 65 MPH, most often settle in around 60--and downhill I certainly slow appropriately. Wouldn't this be enough to avoid an out-of-control situation? And (thanks for humoring me) another Q: I plan to tow a 19' Flying Cloud, 4,500 lbs., with my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland V-8. From your comments, should I worry that my 7,500 tow capacity is inadequate? Or are load distribution, proper brakes, anti-sway bars, the more important factors? And, speed. Thanks, and safe travels!

    Hi Henry and Rhoda! I just saw your pictures at the top of the page and recognized Rhoda. Wow! Great shots of Wyoming. It was great meeting you at the Hands Across the Border Rally in Assiniboia. See you in Montana in September.

    Thanks M&M. Can you tell me the model? I can't seem to find that on the website.

    I also got the business owner toolbox. Does your cap have enough height to
    allow the lid to open?

    I think you are talking about the A.R.E. cap which we had installed at a local shop. We went with this type of cap so we could have easier access to the back without the tailgate, it makes loading and unloading much easier and we can open the door if we just want to grab something quick. The windows open for easy access to gear up by the cab and the liftgate opens up or thru the door. It's a couple hundred pounds, I'm not sure we'll remove it as we never did on our other truck. Got a good price as we were repeat customers and we were getting step tubes from him and a few other mods.
    If you're talking about the boxes inside, they were part of a GMC business owner program so they didn't cost anything and are attached to the inside rail system that we had put on when we ordered the truck. The side boxes are nice as you can remove them by undoing the latch. They all lock. Hope that was what you wanted to know.
