LOL! anyone heard from the OP yet?

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

I would also suggest that the OP gets their new rig weighed, loaded as they will tow it. The stated GVWR of 9000 lbs is not the actual weight of their Airstream. It is the most it should weigh when loaded. Careful loading and placement can have a huge effect on towing stability.
