TV and a '79 Sovereign

I have a 1/2 ton Chevy Rock wood sports van and a 1979 Sovereign. I've been told that the "vintage" trailers weigh less and that my van can pull this trailer. Is that true??

Check the specs on the Chevy website. You need sufficient brakes as well as pulling power in your part of the country. Some people pack heavier than others , but I think you are a little marginal, if you pack for a long trip and are a new comer to hauling.
