Mine doesn't exist either, but it's identical to yours with yours with the addition of Quadrasteer four-wheel steering.

Mine is attainable with more money than I have, and since I am so happy with my 6L 2008 GMC 1500 MAX. I may not.
But, if I can,I want the new 7600 lb 6.2 L 1500 GMC with the 4g wireless.
Then I could really boon dock.

A 1959 Chevy sedan delivery, integrated 3pp hitch, modern V6 turbo diesel and 8 speed transmission.

Oh, it would need a paint job that said 'Joe's Florist' on the side.

Named after my mother-in-law...joe mama. She was a Florist.

Just gotta love the Batwing of a '59 Chevy.

My dream is to spend as little on tow vehicles as possible and still get the job done reliably and inexpensively while being a nice, maneuverable daily driver. That takes diesels out of the picture and makes basic half-ton trucks look pretty good, but there are SUV's such as Dodge Durango that look good for mid-size Airstreams.

There are new vehicles coming soon that look even better with more engine, transmission, and body/frame material choices than we have seen. It's getting interesting.

Dodge/Cummins 3500 Mega Cab with changes to get 20 mpg....LOL. Actually, any of the big trucks with tricked out rear bed goodies would nice. Like a door to the bed, lots of storage in a high quality cap.

Interesting question! Very subjective. I have a 2007 Chevy with a Duramax and I love it. But I do a lot more than tow the Airstream with it. It could be a dream TV, but...

I would like about a '56 Buick Roadmaster with the 6.2 nailhead engine to tow my '55 FC. Perfect style with ample power and comfort. Love that Buick swoosh and lines, they go with the trailer perfectly!

It sure is getting interesting!
My guess is that in the 3 to 5 years the technology available will be pretty amazing! I have at least that much left in my current ride so I will simply watch from the sidelines for now but it is fun to watch no question!

In keeping with the theme of the thread, I am thinking that my "dream tow vehicle" is coming and it is not far away....

I think there are some very interesting cabs which can be outfitted for the ultimate tow vehicle....from the big folks like Kenworth, et. al. While this is overkill in pulling an Airstream, it would be a lot of fun...LOL

I have always loved seeing those huge things! I don't want one but they are cool to see if a bit ridiculous.

My favorite "Real" truck! I would love to be able to rationalize one but can you see me pulling up to a rally pulling our 16' Bambi driving one of these? We already get comments about how our F-150 is bigger than our Airstream...

My funny, funny wife likes to point them out to me when we are driving by saying "...hey Bruce, he has a Real truck"
Sigh,
Bruce
