Actually, the early caravans Wally organized were open to any brand of trailer. They were a marketing effort to show SOB trailer owners how superior Airstreams were.

I'm clearly in the minority here but I tow with a 2WD Tahoe. I swapped the tires for 65 aspect ratio Dura-Grapplers from my previous Michelin LTXs.

There's been times where I wish I had 4WD but I've never gotten stuck or gotten in a situation I couldn't get out of. I camp mostly in the SE and our mountains are more like hills to some. I don't push my luck with steep inclines but I've been able to leave in all sorts of weather (except maybe a blizzard - no chance to try that yet).

Since it seems you may have an opportunity to get 4WD, then I would do it. If you were stuck with 2WD, just know you'll probably be fine.

I got stuck in our yard this July. I didn't really want 4wd, but sometimes we camp on grassy sites, and that little extra traction has helped us avoid making ruts. But if we were doing almost exclusively koas, wbcci rallies, and hard surfaces, probably would go 2wd.

All depends on how and where you want to put the trailer and TV.
