Default 19067-1972 Chevy Suburban for a tow rig???

Thoughts in regards to towing a 1900lbs trailer with a jeep on it (maybe 6000 total)? It would see less than a dozen trips per year mostly in state of on flat roadways. I don't know much about older trucks, so I'm looking for some insight before I start trying to talk the wife into letting me buy one. What would be the biggest issues? Brakes? Frame Strength? The did offer a heavier duty 3/4 version at some point later in production I think in 1970.
