polishing and towing

Hello, I am new to the forum and enjoy reading the threads.
I am in the planning stage of restoring a 1962 Safari 22 ft. To start could someone share thier experience in restoring the exterior aluminum skin.
Also I plan to use 2000 Ford explorer as a tow vehical. Will it do the job?
You can post, email or ph. 410-937-2786
Thanking you in advance,
