Plenty of sedan towing van around but you will need to check towing weights etc . re ford ute a bit of weight in back over rear wheel will help !!!!

Any ute is light in the rear end, and the van could actually end up steering you.
Having said that there are plenty of ways to combat that problem. Mainly a couple full sandbags.

There is the 1 Tonne ute as well, and they are a good vehicle, but again, very light in the tail, but towing capacity should not be a problem.
Ford actually turned out a Ute for farmers & the "Tradie", but I cannot remember it's name. They actuallt sat up higher, and came with some sort of diff lock, as standard

It was Called the ... LONGREACH.
Had extra fuel tank etc. and for towing would be ok provided you had a bit of cargo on the back or in the tub.
Just your usual outback gear and perhaps a couple of containers of water etc.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
