    These are great trailers and worth the money. We used to have a 32ft Airstream Excella and it only weighed 6,000lbs dry! An average camper that was 32ft long would probably weigh twice that. Once we loaded it down with everything, it weighed about 8,000lbs. Towing with the Duramax you could never feel it back there and since it is rounded off it was real aerodynamic and we averaged about 13-15mpg towing it which isn't bad at all. It earned the name "Silver Bullet" and we had so many memories camping with it and taking it all over the place, sadly, dad had to sell it a couple years ago because we were strapped for cash and it was the only thing sitting around not being used at the time. One downside to a Airstream though is on a hot day, it is like a oven in there so better make sure the A/C works well before you get one!
