'78 Safari towed weight

Please help. I am newbie to Airstream. Have owned other brands but am interested in restoring one myself. I need the approximate weight of 78 safari. I am interested in purchase but am concerned about towing. Any help is appreciated.

Safari weight

According to a list of weights from Airstream, the '78 Safari weighs 3,905 pounds dry, with a hitch weight of 500 pounds.

Hope that helps.

Here is a link to the Airstream website which lists the trailer weights for most makes & models over the years. It should help you decide what could work with your tow vehicle if the '78 Safari doesn't...
