Airstream single axle--anybody towed one of these ?

I am looking for a small trailer but with a toilet and bath. Preferably 16-19 feet long. Must have 6'3" --6'4 head room or more and dedicated bed at over 75 " long.

5000 gvwr trailer weight rating
under 500 lbs hitch weight
I have a Large suv to pull it--6000 capacity. No weight distributing hitch possible.

So--I see that airstream makes a single axle 16' and a single axle 19' .( at a very high price !)

I have had all,kinds of trailers from single axle to triple axle. Pop up, fold out, hybrid,plus many cargo trailers.

I am think a single axle at 4000 lbs is probably ok but know that a double axle trailers better.

Looking for anybody with experience with a single axle at 4000+ weight --like the airstream!

Any ideas or assistance welcome.

It's going to be hard to find ALL of those stats in one trailer, but I suggest looking at the Winnebago Micro Minnie

Because of a self leveling air-suspension system? Just curious. I had that on my V10 Touareg TDI.

Go over to airforums.com and you can learn about these smaller airstreams. By all accounts, they tow very well. The double axle 22' model may also work. Light weight, good aerodynamics and the torsion type axles all are factors. Plus they will be in your desired weight range. Up to these sizes, you should't need w/d or sway control.

We tow a KZ Sportsman, single axle, GVWR 3500#, 19' interior, trailer with our Kia Boreggo, V-6. It has a hitch weight of 360# as we tow and weighs in at 3480#. We lived in it this summer from April 20 until September 28 nonstop. It served us very well.
