We tow a Jeep Wrangler 4Dr. We take the Jeep off roading and to the Sand Dunes in Michigan. The 4Dr allows us to to use the back seat for passengers and still leaves a lot of room in the back of the back seat to carry stuff. The Jeep 4Dr weighs around 4100# and we use a Blue Ox tow bar. The only way you know it is behind the coach, is you see it in the rear view camera screen and you feel a slight tug as the axillary brake engages. The Jeep Wrangles from 2008 on, can be towed with the ignition key removed (although my 2007 has that feature too).

I have had Fords, Jeeps, and GMs over the years, so I am not married to a brand. I will note that many Jeeps and GM 4WDs can be towed without modification or speed/distance limits.

I like some of the Ford product but the almost all have a speed and or distance limitation.

I currently tow a 99 Suburban - if I break down I can load my dogs, enough of my stuff (oh yes, my delightful wife) and get on down the road. I tow a 99 Suburban because towing a new vehicle doesn't make sense to me - they tend to get beat up.

Towing 4x4

I purchased a 1999 GMC extended cab pickup at a repo auction 6 years ago. We have pulled it cross country a couple of times, pulls great, easy to hook and unhook with no issues as to distance or time towing 4 down. Check out the older vehicles and you may find just what you need at a reasonable cost. Enjoy the trip.
