Whatever you choose, good luck and enjoy your new Bambi!
The best match of tow vehicle and trailer is where the TV best suits the owner for solo miles and can also tow the trailer.
Too much TV is not better despite assertions to the contrary (spending too much for too little in return). Spec the TV for both jobs. The linked thread is a great description where it is done right.
Much of the point of an aerodynamic, low ground clearance, independent-suspension trailer like an Airstream is that it is a better all-around performer (less HP to travel the same speed, less affected by winds, less susceptible to tripping hazards) than a conventional travel trailer and can be towed by a wider variety of vehicles. Built better, lasts longer, performs better. The "proper" TV will more closely fit what the owner needs in solo miles, thusly. A good match is everything.
Expand your choices. A HONDA Odyssey is another for consideration. So are any of a number of cars.
