I tow with a Honda Pilot rated for 4500 and with a really good sway-bar control. that said I was advised to always tow with ‘overdrive’ off, which in the case of the Pilot means flicking the d3 on.

I tow our 16 ft with a 01 dodge durango. 5.9L in it. I also have a 14 hyundai santa fe that I will be setting up to tow the trailer with too. IE tranny cooler, flat 4 to 7 pole wiring, with electric brake regulator, air bags for the hyundai and at minimum an antisway bar for the trailer.

Both rigs will pull the trailer just fine. I figure we have about 3000lbs when it is all said and done with our gear.

How about a cargo van? Looking at Dodge Promaster 3500 vans.

A 2500 or 3500 cargo van will be fine especially if you are traveling full time.

I tow my 189 FBR just fine with a Toyota Highlander and Weigh Distribution hitch and it tows just fine on even moderately heavy hills and feels locked in even with cross winds. Sure my setup gets sucky mileage (11 mpg) but everyone gets that kind of mileage towing. Just keep the 16 footer light (under 2800 pounds) and a mini-van is big enough to actually break some of the wind resistance. If you want, you could actually go to a full size van with a big six or V8 if you want a little more power.
We are towing a 160X with a Kia Sorento AWD V6 and it does just fine without a WDH.

It pulls just fine using an ad-on sway bar.
I drive 65 and enjoy the ride.
