It sounds like you might have a 1962 Globe Trotter Airstream Travel Trailer. According to my research this has a dry weight of 2,770lbs and a hitch weight of 400lbs hitch ball height of 19.5

If the 3,500lbs weight capacity will work for your loaded Airtstream, then the Timbren axle-less system # ASR3500S06 could be just what your looking for. Since this hasn't been installed on this trailer before here are the dimensions you will need to check to determine if this system will work for you. See attached images.

You will want to make sure that your hub face measurement has adequate clearance for your tire. To determine this you would want half your section width to measure no larger than 4 to 4-1/2 inches. You will also want to ensure you have proper deflection clearance, shown in second photo.

If you determine these a fit for your Airstream then the following parts with make up the axle-less kit for 3,500lbs with 4 inch lift and electric brakes:
quantity 1 # ASR3500S06 - 3,500lbs 4 inch lift axle-less system
quantity 2 # 84546UC3 - 10 inch brake assembly
quantity 1 # AKEBRK-35L-SA - left hand brake
quantity 1 # AKEBRK-35R-SA - right hand brake
quantity 1 # BP10-220 - adjuster plug cover kit
quantity 8 # 6-17 - mounting nuts
quantity 8 # 5-8 - lock washers
