1979 30' Sovereign

Hello my hubby and I just bought a 1979 30' airstream. All we have as far as vehicles go is a Chevy half ton van. Can anyone tell me what would be the best truck/suburban/SUV to pull this not so little monster of ours? We are looking for something! Thank you so much!!!

Your 1/2 ton van is equivalent to a 1/2 ton truck with a steel bed cap welded on, I know a guy who swears by his ford vans and says they're basically the best hauling vehicle ever, a truck but better. If you feel your 1/2 ton is too light and still need a van maybe you could trade in your 1/2 ton for a 3/4, or 1 ton van and have the best of all worlds ? Or buy a suburban which is basically a long 4 door van with a second or even 3rd seat, suburbans seem popular on this forum as TV's, just look at the forum header pic.
