I tow my 29 foot 1964 ambassador with my 2006 V6 Toyota 4 runner. The 4.0L V6 tows the double axel trailer all day long at about 4500 lbs. i get about 15 mph at 60 mph. I would recommend the Toyota. Unless you have the need to tow at 65-7 mph get a v8 or diesel. Otherwise a v6 does just fine.

The heavier Toyota might control the slightly lighter mass of the trailer in gusty winds better than a lighter than trailer weight vehicle. I would consider the tow vehicle with the widest stance for stability from side loads imposed by the trailer connection.

Since pickups have relatively light loading on the rear wheels to be able to carry cargo, one might be wise to carry spare water or the like in addition to the tongue weight so the rear tires get a good grip on the road.
