we lived 2 yrs full time in a "74 ambassador...29'. Had 2 dogs too.
Towed like a dream...never even knew it was behind. TV was a 94 ford 250 7.6 L diesel. got about 12mph towing...15 w/o. Loaded wt. was about 8600 lbs.
The bed of the pu allowed for storage and was plenty for us.
Only problem i had was the low "head bangers" between rooms ...i'm 6' 3".
We currently have an artic fox...has one slide which is very nice. However i'd go back to an airstream in a second...the areodynamics of the rig is the thing.
looking for a 35' tripple axle as we speak.
luck to you,
