Historians: Explain why later Excella/Classics are heavier
Shopping for my first Airstream. Trying to keep the horse before the cart, so to speak, in that I already have my tow vehicle and my Airstream choice cannot exceed my towing capacity.
Please educate this novice Airstreamer on why the dry weight specs. of the newer Airstreams (late 90's and up) are much heavier than earlier specs. for equivalent models of the same length made in the early 90's.
Is this solely due to the width change? (What year did that happen?)
Are the specifications more conservative now, or then?
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
