I just bought a heavy duty flatbed trailer to haul a vehicle behind me. Buy once, haul anything I want forever. The attachments and conversions you have to do to each vehicle add up to more than the cost of a trailer.

Here is my 14k car hauler that I just got.

The biggest problem with a trailer is finding a place to put it upon arrival at your campsite!

My RV has spent 3 nights at a campsite in the last 10 months. I dont camp... Worst case I get a 60 foot pull through, and park the car on top of it.

Years ago, I had a car dolly. It worked good , but a lot of places we stopped at wanted us to put the dolly in a parking area away from where we were starting. Also, it seemed like a another hassle to have to deal with. Pulling all 4 down is a lot faster hook-up, and disconnect. The CRV requires no special parts, just don't exceed 65 mph. Of corse, like you said, with the trailer....you can take any thing you want. We are full timers, and only stay at resorts year round. We have an 40' Allegro Bus 400 cummins.

Our Jeep can be towed four down from the factory. Takes about two minutes to go through the routine to be sure we the tranny is in neutral. Our Roadmaster All Terrain hitch is really easy to attach (much easier than the Blue Ox that we had on our last coach...and I'm really not trying to start that discussion....personal observation only). I suspect we can be hooked and unhooked much faster than anyone can load or unload a trailer or dolly. And, as we learned on this trip, if you end up with a campsite that requires backing out....it's fast and easy to drop the car, back up the coach, reattach the car and roll down the road. We rarely buy new cars so I can honestly say that neither of the two Jeeps we have had set us back as far as the car trailer pictured earlier. The last one already had the tow plate installed when we purchased it. They have been reliable vehicles and have proved their worth to us over and over.

We made it home, safe and sound! The Anthem was better than the pictures indicated, so we are very happy. Both of us were a bit intimidated by the size, and had the jitters when first driving it, but caught the hang of driving quickly. We only had one back-in campsite, and folks around us helped with that. We still have much to learn, but we are happy campers! Thanks to all of you for helping us learn so much in the beginning.
