Our Travel Trailer
The towing characteristics and road manners of the Airstream International are impressive. Measuring 22 feet, 4 inches long, this travel trailer is a pleasure to tow and to live in. Minus any signs of fishtailing or trailer sway, our unit tracked nicely behind the Dodge Ram on the Interstate, in urban settings, and along mountain and country roads.

Airstream International trailers are four-season units that are built to be used and enjoyed year 'round. They're well insulated, come with heated holding tanks, a 13.5-million-BTU roof air-conditioner, and a forced-air furnace. Holding-tank capacities are sufficient and can support self-contained RV camping for several days. L.P. is the fuel source for the furnace, three-burner cooktop, two-way refrigerator/freezer, and electric ignition water heater. Its 30-amp shore power is standard while the deep-cycle house batteries make standalone RV camping possible.

Other appointments include a sofa/sleeper, galley sink, microwave oven, wardrobe, full-size bed, storage cabinets, pantry, and an LCD television with DVD player. Airstreams come prewired for satellite and an optional solar package. Other options include Sirius Satellite Radio and an external speaker jack.

Equipped with electric brakes, the 5600-pound GVWR on our unit yielded a net cargo-carrying capacity of 1495 pounds. For more, contact Airstream, Inc. at 877/596-6111; www.airstream.com.-
