List of used tow Vehicles?

I am looking for a used vehicle that can tow our 30ft international (9,000lbs). Has anyone made a list of used trucks/cars that can handle the job? I am finding the tow rating varies greatly by year and make.

Probably any 3/4 ton pickup, gas or diesel. Recent F150 with "Ecoboost" engine and max trailer tow package. Probably not any Ram 1500 (payload limited). '14 GMC or Chevy 1500 with max trailer tow package and 5.3 V8 or 6.2 V8. SUVs: I'd look at payload carefully, remembering that the tongue weight of your trailer (about 600-1000 lbs.) is part of the payload that your vehicle carries. Also relevant is whether you're in the west (bigger, longer hills more power-killing altitude) or not.
