You can use the current shock that Airstream has been using since late 1968
But, you might have to shorten the vertical bracket so that the distance between the studs is no more than 14 1/2 inches.
However, that dimension should only be used when using a "known" good axle.
That dimension will be a lot less if the axle rubber rods are history, which happens after about 25 years, and a lot sooner if the trailer was parked and not moved for a couple of years.
