Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 2019 + 1978 Argosy 6.0 Minuet

Hi Friends - new to this life and couldn't be more excited. My wife and I just acquired a 1978 Airstream Argosy 6.0 Meter Minuet. Step #2 is the tow vehicle and I wanted to tap into this community for help.

We are currently looking at the Mercedes GLE as we wanted something that would pull well above the weight of the vehicle but also be a smaller SUV. From what I read we should go 450 over 350 as to not strain the car as much (we are going to be living out of it full time over the next few months). BUT - we found a GLE 400 which seems to be a rarer model.

Is anyone familiar with this model and see any issues using this to pull our sweet little argosy?

Thanks for your knowledge.
