2016 Chevy Colorado z71 Diesel???

Hey Guys

New to the site but looking for some advice on a tow vehicle. Any chance this new Colorado Diesel can handle towing an '86 Airstream Limited 34 footer?

Max towing is rated at 7,700 and the research I've done has the airstream at 7,400. I'm also concerned about the tongue weight. Is this a terrible idea? Am I asking for trouble?

Would rather have the smaller vehicle for daily use. Plan on taking the trailer around 3-4 times a year and probably never further than a few hundred miles at a time.

The truck seems to be designed to handle the weight. My concern would be the wheelbase of the truck compared to the 34-foot trailer. But I'm sure folks are doing it with success. I'd be sure to have a good WD hitch with sway control.
