I'm probably not the right guy to answer this question considering I have towed a 7500lb 25ft cabin cruiser 100miles round trip TWICE with an Isuzu Trooper with 2600cc 4 cylinder engine. Both times very very early on a Sunday morning.
Mostly any vehicle "could" tow an Aframe camper. Getting it going is usually easy. Getting it to stop is another thing altogether.
My F250 with the 7.3lt diesel will tow anything you want. Getting it to stop in a hurry empty will give you white knuckles. Hands down the worst ABS brakes I've ever dealt with.
Of course my truck only has 280,000 miles on it so I may get used to it. 😜

Hello............

Had a 2004 Aliner and used a Ford Escape to tow it just fine. Now have a Rockwood A212HW and use a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Does just fine.........

My tv is rated for 6600 towing but 7300 with a weight distribution hitch. If you are capable of pulling you trailer but feel your maxing out , you will most likely increase your safety and towing capacity with a wdh. It's cheaper than a new tv.

This is what happens when you aren't specific in your title.
The OP asked about tow vehicles in the A-frame sub-forum.
But they didn't specify that in the title.
So half the responses ignore that this thread is the A-frame sub-forum and post about tow vehicles for other much larger trailers.

Just returned home from 4000 miles of towing my Flagstaff T21TBHW with my 2006 Toyota 4Runner V6. From central Texas to California, I averaged 15.2 mpg (lots of strong headwinds). From California to Albuquerque I averaged 17.4 (several good tailwinds) . Bear in mind that I rarely go over 65 and was limited to 55 in California (GRRR... I will NEVER pull a trailer in California again! I must admit however that the California drivers were awesome! I drove I-5 right through the heart of downtown Los Angeles and every time I signaled a lane change, someone backed off and gave me room. That almost never happens in New Mexico!)

Nice looking. I am eventually going to replace my Tundra with a Tacoma. I don't see rails on the cabs often. Are they factory or aftermarket?
