The half-ton pickups of the late 1980s do not enjoy the trailer tow limits of the current half-tons. Depending upon motor, transmission, rear differential, and the presence of particular towing options your truck could have anything from a 2,400 pound to a 6,500 pound rating. I know that the maximum with full trailer towing options on my '95 half-ton Silverado was 6,000 pounds.
My guess, if you are considering a Vintage pre-1980 coach, is that you would be happiest with towing performance when matched with a coach no larger than the Overlander . . . and the TradeWind may be a better match. More can be told with better data on how your truck is equipped mechanically.
Good luck with your investigation.
