You are totally right Dan, this was an error, not an Airstream error but my own. The VIN plate is hardly readable but after a lot of opinions heard we believe it says 5,600 lbs as GVWR and 2,800 for each axle. That make sense?
Our tow horse is a 1994 Buick Roadmaster and we upgraded our hitch to a 2"x2" U-Haul hitch rated 1,000/10,000 lbs with weight distribution (thank you Indy at BadAss). With weight distribution made in China and a sway control made in Taiwan, both sold by Campers Barn in Kingston, NY (now Campers World, thanks Don and Jerry, hang on), the trailer behaves beautifully and the tow is uncomplicated.
We are currently traveling through New England, having great fun - now at the most Eastern campsite in the USA - Lubec, Me.
