Newbie needs help, please

I happily ended up with the 1963 Globe Trotter, 19', in the breakup. I'm not handy at all, sadly, and just spent a lot of money having "Stella" fixed up - polished, new axle, compost toilet, fresh water tank and pex, gray tank etc. A good friend towed her home for me and parked her in my driveway. I heard a huge scrape and looked under to see a huge gash in something sticking down 6" from the underbelly. Turns out my airstream guy didn't install a low profile gray tank when he took out the subfloor to put one in. He says the fix is repair the hole and add skid wheels. I've lost confidence in him - project 3 months past due, and water had flooded my new renovation because he forgot to tip urn off the water pump and a faucet opened on the drive home. I'm discouraged but not giving up.

So, ideas about skid wheels and I also need a tow vehicle. Avoiding to the weight chart she weighs 2770 pounds, so figure 4,000 max what do I need to tie her? Is a 5,000 pound rating enough? I'd rather not get a truck. Thanks!
