10x2 1/2 Drum Brakes on New Airstreams

I understand the "industry standard" is 10" drums on Dexter axles up to 3500 pound ratings. Two of those axles are suitable for trailers up to 7000 pounds gross weight ratings.

Does anyone know what new Airstream trailers have 10" drums and the gross vehicle weight rating of those trailers?
