26 RKS tow vehicle

Possible new owner considering buying a 2003 26 RKS with dual dinettes. It will be our first trailer other than borrowing the in-laws trailer was the only floor plan that works for us.
Anyone know the empty weight and what is needed for tow vehicle? The trailer will be kept on a seasonal lot for now but chances are we will be moving it once or twice a year and it's a 600 mile/1000 kilometer trip one way.
I'm trying to stay away from the minivan thing...

I tow a 2004 Flagstaff 26RKS with a 2003 1/2 ton Suburban. Gross wt on it is about 6500, Empty weight is under 5K.

Ford tested tough.

We have a Flagstaff 829FKSS and it tows fine behind our 2008 F150 w/tow and go package. Our 06 HR Savoy was a little much for this truck (7200# dry.) We have been towing with Ford trucks for 20 years without any problems at all.
