Vans do not have the power to pull a horse trailer. People who do discover this when the start to have engine and tow-related problems. Get a used diesel truck.
BTW, my 1993 3/4 ton Dodge Cummins, with ~113,000 still hauls well, but I (stupidly) moved a few cement blocks with it, that had been put in for fence posts, and I'm pretty sure that this will cost me a new transmission. I needed a tractor. I don't mind much bc I only have problems around 55mph, and not in the lower gears, and the truck is nearly 20 years old, so new transmissions and the like come with the territory. I just wanted to warn you. I have had to learn about towing and trailers the HARD WAY, over the years, by being stranded more than ONCE.
