DAMN that's a lot of weight for a trep i'd hate to even imagine how slow that'd accelerate

i'm pretty sure it is. look closely near the mirror, they added an extended mirror so they can see around that trailer.

Those are airstream trailers, lighter then they look. But still more then enough weight, odds are this car has aftermarket tranny and oil coolers. There is a shop that sells air streams by my place and they have always had a Intrepid hooked up to a trailer, it just sits in the same spot mabe its broke down, LOL..

Its got load equalizer bars on it, you can see them hanging below the trailer..

And even if airstream trailers aren't heavy.. they don't put 3 axles on trailers for looks and low cost ;)

I would like to know the GVW and tongue weight of that trailer cause I have a hard time believing that the 'trep can actually pull that (I think the owner's manual gives a max of like 1,500lbs) I own a medium sized Rockwood pop-up trailer and I would never even think of pulling it with the trep(that's what the Jeep's for ) the tranny is not rated to handle that kind of load...that's a sure way to cook a tranny that isn't intended for that kind of service....

The equalizer hitch I have on our van, has a max tongue weight of 1000lbs. The van is a B250 with a 318 and the factory trailer towing package and the max trailer weight I can pull is 7800lbs. I'm sure that trailer is close to 7000lbs loaded, so I really feel sorry for that poor old Trep.
