As the former owner of an X5 (diesel) and a 25' AS FB, count me in the group that says it probably do-able, but definitely not the right tool for the job. (I ended up with an F150 Ecoboost to pull...

No, you can easily navigate the entirety of Hwy 101 in a 25'-30' Airstream. It's curvy and slow in spots, but very doable.

Jay,

You have to be careful not to confuse "Portland" with "Oregon". (As a native of both, I feel qualified to opine!).

Formerly a 2013 25FB International, currently a 2015 30' Bunk. The 2013 EcoBoost Max Tow has done an amazing job with both trailers, even out here in the West.

+1 for the Costco service. I purchased my last two trucks that way - one off the lot, and another custom-ordered. It's simple, non-contentious, and I felt like the price was very fair in both cases.
