Greetings. I have read numerous threads indicating the Expedition Max can do alright towing a newer model 25-27 foot airstream. My question is, what about the old airstreams? Am I incorrect to believe the 2010's models and newer are about two thousand pounds heavier than the vintage airstreams or is that negated by the hitch weight, GVWR or payload?
I am closer to pulling the trigger on a 1970 31' Sovereign
International, hoping to tow it with an Expedition Max with HD tow package. Not certain of year on the ford, have yet to acquire. I'll be looking for a 2019 but could end up with a 2018.
The trailer I am about to buy is empty and ready for a build out but has had a shell off renovation including re-welded frame, new torsion axels with the control arm angle set a little down to allow a couple extra inches of clearance, new belly pan, new wheels and tires, new rock guard, new tanks, new subfloor and interior floor etc. I'm reading the 1970 sovereign
international has a 4960lb dry weight and 490 hitch weight. Hoping we will stick close to that after build out but I expect we could be over as much as 1000lbs due to using tile in the bathroom and planning four bunks and a queen, etc.
I'd love to hear your experiences or thoughts.
