E2500 towing capacity

I have a 2013 E2500 Ford van and I'm having a hard time figuring out how big of an Airstream I should buy. It has a 4.6 liter engine and 3.73 rear axle ratio. I would appreciate any experienced advice on the biggest AS I can tow distances.

State the door placard info plus info from Ford website towing guide plus get a scaled weight of van with driver and full fuel plus items aboard always present for towing.

Payload restrictions plus trailer tongue weight needs guesstimating.

You've a heavy non aero vehicle with a small motor and stiff gearing. Sounds good for in town delivery. Not so good for highway speeds pulling a travel trailer

I would consider a van with a larger motor
