I think you would have a lot more tow capacity with the f 350 truck.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not presently in the market for a new TV, but I've seen a lot of these vans around, which got me thinking if they would be a viable option when the time comes.
Eons ago, when I was in high school, I'd occasionally help my dad when he was out on service calls. He drove some heavy-duty van loaded (I don't recall what) carrying five or six 200-pound CO2 tanks, lots of syrup (to make carbonated beverages) and other heavy equipment. I figured if a van could do that, maybe it could pull a trailer. I guess that is not their strong point!
