Gulf Stream Visa

We are considering buying a Gulf Stream Visa. My concern is that it is 19 feet long but only has a single axle. Anyone heard of any problems?

Looking at their website, their 19ft trailers are coming in between 2500-3000 pounds (fully loaded).
While a single axle will handle 3500lbs (assuming they alxe is a 3500lb capacity), it will tow fine. However, I would feel that tandem-axles would two much better.
My concern would be trailer sway on the highway.

Our Aljo is 16 ft single axle and weighs about 2900 dry. We added a sway bar and it rides smoothly and very stable, you would never know the trailer was back there. it's 21 yrs old, so i guess the axle's strong enough.
Our main concern is the tires. We take special care with them, as there's only two. Lizzy
