    Thanks! I ordered the RAS and am planning to install it today.

    Can you provide more info about the swivel mount and integrated sound bar? I have a 23D and the 24" tv is pretty lame. I bought a 32" smart tv to replace it but it will have to be lowered to fit in the space avoiding the curved wall. A different mount might allow higher placement yet still fit with the curved wall. Thanks

    Hi 2012FB,

    I am new to Airstream and trailering and have appreciated your comments about payload and pulling a trailer.

    I recently purchased an F150 XLT Powerboost with max trailer package (Payload 1558; Tow rating 14k) to pull a used (but new to us) 26' Airstream (2018). The tongue weight on this is 900 lbs (on paper), and I will be weighing it all soon. It's just me and wife and dog, so I feel pretty good that we will be under the payload of our truck.

    That being said, the towing ride is a bit bumpy, so I was really writing for your thoughts and suggestions about improving that, but also having a good ride when not towing.

    I noticed that you use the Roadmaster Active Suspension Kit. My local trailer shop has suggested getting Timbren Suspension enhancement system ... but some of the reviews on this suggest it makes the non towing ride really bumpy. Any thoughts or advice??

    Be well,
