Hybrid is the answer

The dream TV would be a hybrid truck - as follows:

1. Ford Super Duty Chassis (cargo capacity, nice durable interior, robust brake controller, rear step on tailgate, 4x4 front end that is durable, . . . .)
2. Cumins diesel engine out of a RAM
3. Allison transmission out of an Obama motors truck

There's only 1 right answer - Toyota Tundra 2x4 - 5.7l - V8.

You won't even know there's a trailer behind you.

Many modern half-tons are rated to tow well in excess of 10,000#. How much money do you want to spend?
I am a Toyota fan boy.

I recommend a used circa 2010 R320 Series Mercedes Diesel Station Wagon.

Actually I have no idea ... But I'd like to see how the above does as a TV on something that length/weight.

I have a 28' FC which may weigh the same as your International. I tow mine with a Nissan Titan with factory tow package. The trailer's GVWR is 7600, the truck can tow up to 9400. My trailer's tongue weight is close to the limit of my truck's though so I am hoping the weight distribution set up I have mitigates that.

Since the majority recommends a Ford to your wide-open question...I recommend the Ford Focus (with stabilizer bar and weight-distributing hitch, of course).

We have a 2005 Ford Focus wagon. It struggles with a 1000 pound utility trailer. I can just imagine what would happen with 6 to 8000 pounds of Airstream pushing it down the road.
