Cool Airstream Overlander Land Yacht 1973

Hi,
I'm hoping for some help! I have a 73 Overlander and can't remember the weight. I am thingking of buying a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 V8, 4.7 liter, 4X4 shortbed. Anyone out there know if the truck can tow my airstream?

Thanks,
Stacy

I show either 4545 or 4570 lbs dry. Fully loaded and full water will add less than 1,000 lb. (unless you are a pack rat).

The question is not will it tow it but will it tow comfortably. Bigger is usually better in the towing department. A bigger engine and longer wheelbase make for a more pleasurable time.
