Can my truck tow a 2014 Airstream 27FB? Any problems to overcome or upgrades that need to be made??

Handles a 19' Bambi with power to spare.

Don't know for bigger AS but that set up handles a 19' Bambi really well.
Many thousand miles and 2 cross country trips no problem gas mileage drops to 11mpg while towing, normal mileage not towing 17 to max 22.
My reared is the normal 3.8.

My 2012 tows a 25 FB just fine. Never been west but the NC/VA/WV/PA mountains are no problem.
