Tow vehicle recommendations for Grand design

Any recommendations for a tow vehicle that can tow the Grand design solitude model? The GVWR is listed as 15,000lbs.

If your after tow vehicle recommendation , then maybe a moderator will move your post over to the proper forum . Right now you're in the towed vehicle forums.

In the mean time , I'll say ; there is no such thing as too much truck; when it comes to controlling a heavy 5er.
JMHO; after having 4 , 5th wheels; 350/3500 dually minimum. 450 preferred.

Some of the new gen 350/3500 SRW trucks have tow rating above 17k and have 4000-4500 lb payloads. That would be my choice as a minimum.

The newer gen 350/3500 DRW Ford/GM and Ram trucks will have no problems with a 14k-15k trailer.
