THANKS to all of you that gave me your input on the 2012 Honda CRV. We did purchase the AWD, and I absolutely LOVE the car! Now, I can't wait to hook it behind our Fleetwood Providence and hit the road! This groups is AWSOME!

I tow a 2013, same as a 2012. Previously I towed a 2004 CRV.
Its a great toad, The difference between the newer CRV and my older model is its important to install a fuse switch or a battery charge cable.
The newer CRV uses more hidden, background 12V elect. than my previous CRV and will deplete the battery if towed for extended periods. Its in the manual. Pull the radio fuse for extended towing.
CRVs are the best toads ever, you wont be disappointed.

We have towed our 2007 CRV 2wd for many years never a problem. Recently we purchased a 2013 CRV AWD, and have begun towing it with all four down, no problems.

Again, thanks for everyone's input. Now we are just trying to see if we can find a "second hand" baseplate for the 2012's...doubt it, since it's such a new model....but we are keeping our eyes and ears open!

Why buy used when you can buy new for about $350.00 including shipping Trailer Hitches: Use the Trailer Hitch Finder to Find the Right Hitch at the Lowest Price | Hitchsource.com
Just look for base plates.

The CRV tows great. Save yourself some heart burn with the wiring. Buy a Ready Brute tow bar and you have everything you need. Wiring Hondas present some options. See Blue OX website for 2 method's. I already had a Blue OX tow bar. then I purchased a READY Brake adapter. Now screwing around with loading a box in front of drivers seat, hooking up electrical, testing (I think a pain in backside). No extra electrical to tie in so the CRV isn't dead after towing for a couple of hours. safe traVELS... ED
