Is this TV adequate to pull my 31' Sovereign?

What size load bars do I need for this setup? Do I need a 4.10 rear end?

Suggestions?

I think it already has 4.10 gears, or better. I wonder how many gallons per mile it gets towing?

I don't know, but wouldn't it look great in front of an Airstream?

What engine is that? Looks like something Jay Lenoe would come up with.

It looks like a V 12 based on the big block Chevy.

I'm thinking Allison Aircraft engine? I'll bet WOT starts might pop the odd rivet!
Adios, John
