There is an old joke about an announcement over the loudspeakers at one of the Airstream International rallies: "Attention! We have a lost 7 year old child at here at the office. She says her parents have a silver trailer and a blue Suburban."
Ok, maybe EVERYONE doesn't have a Suburban.
I know there is one, and maybe a couple of polls in the archives on Airstreamer's choice of tow vehicles. One thing in your favor is that right now the size tow vehicle you will need will be selling for far less now than two months ago, what with gas prices and all. Assuming you are looking at something made these last 20 years or so, you will need a pickup/van/SUV in a 3/4 ton size. They are simply too heavy for 1/2 tons. And at that you will need to make sure you have enough horsepower and gearing. There are lots of discussions on engine and transmission choices in the archives as well.
