    Hi Subfan, purchased from Southwest Coaches in Corona, CA last year. OC Airstream was not open yet. However, we live about 5-7 miles from OCA. Took it there today for service and upgrades. You're right, great people.

    Yes it is one of our favorite places to go. How did you guess?

    Subfan,
    Thinking about installing street side and rear awnings on 19 ft international.
    And I see you have them on yours.
    Have they made a difference in interior comfort and cooling in the summer.
    Also, Did you install or were they stock?

    Hello Subfan! We're doing the walk through on Tuesday and pickup at some point after that, depending on what happens at the walk through. I've read so many bad experiences for those who sign on the dotted line when the dealer says, "Sign here, and we'll get all that stuff fixed for you." This is our first trailer and I feel like such a sucker because of my inexperience.

    I'm happy that we live in San Diego with year around temperate weather and many campsites within a couple of hours. I will definitely get some AS pics up soon. So, everyone wants to see your rig inside and out? That's pressure to keep it clean.

    Yes, that is Yosemite. The tow vehicle at that time was a 2006 GMC Denali which has since been replaced by a 2005 Ford F250 Diesel. The diesel doesn't even know the trailer is behind it!

    I apologize for not answering your inquiry way back last July. I am a novice at this forums and private message thing. I never noticed your message until tonight.

    We have never experienced any trouble with towing. We tow the trailer with a 2007 1/2 ton GMC with at 5.3 liter V8 engine and a 3.73 rear axle ratio. We have towed it up and down some extreme mountain slopes. Many long stretches of 7% and 8% slope and one 4 or 5 mile long at 13%.

    We have a Reese Dual Cam hitch and we have never experienced any sway, either with strong cross winds or when being passed by semi rigs. I consider it the best hitch for the money. We private messaged Andy at Inland RV and told him what truck we were buying and what trailer we were ordering and he told us to buy the 600# bars and he was absolutely right. The technician who installed the hitch said it was a perfect combination.

    We live in Michigan and have taken many trips in the the state and have taken a 4,000 mile trip to the northern Rockies and a 6,000 mile trip to New Mexico, Arizona and Utah and have never had any problems with the trailer and tow package.

    We chose the 20 foot trailer because it had the best galley set up of any Airstream including the larger models, it has a great deal of storage space and also we like the front bed. We chose the small size trailer to better get into out of the way places.

    The single axle trailer is easier to over steer when you are backing into a campsite. But with experience I am learning to make smaller steering adjustments to avoid the over steering problem.
