I just recently bought my first airstream and i wonder if other women have long trailers like this , can you pull one safely on them small scary roads?? The inside seems like it is still new the outside has a ding or two but i pulled one out with a suction cup....Ha.....

I got a 32 footer also- 1986 I like it loads. Hey we're having a forum rally in your neck of the woods at Lake San Antonio in Oct. You should check it out! We always welcome new owners and the group is a real hoot! As far as pullin on a windy road- which one you talkin about? what is your tow vehicle. I've pulled some roads that other forum members won't you just need to know your own personal limitations and what your TV-AS are safely capable of performing. And the suction cups definately work!!

I, likewise, have a 1987 32' Excella. Seemed a little longer than I was looking for at first but, guess what, it all follows you down the road. Just take it slow in the turns until you get a feel for your turning radius. I find it easier to back than a shorter unit. Love the room. I would suggest at least a 3/4 ton pickup or suburban. Smaller units would probably pull OK, but the extra size gets you heavier brakes and suspension. Being able to stop the unit on grades and emergency situations is way up there in my book. Happy streaming!!!!
