Suburban or Yukon XL, we have a Commander, which is a great Jeep but it seats 5 and 2 small munchkins. Most on your list need modifications to be tow-able.

If you can handle the extra weight Suburbans are great vehicles to tow. I have a Suburban and Jeep setup to tow. Suburbans also are easy to setup for towing, no battery\fuse issues, push a button to get transfer case inneutral, tranny in Park remove key and lock up. We have SMI AF1 on the suburban and M&G on the Jeep. Blue Ox tow bar Blue Ox adapter on Suburban. I can tell a little difference in towing but not much.
~1000 pounds difference.
It is handy when we travel with RV friends that do not have a tow vehicle. We all pile in the Suburban if we want to go somewhere.

I'm curious if you have 7 or 8 seat belted seats in the MH to safely, and legally, seat everyone.

A Yukon or Denali with the third seat option would easily seat 7. Friend recently bought one just to transport her grandkids. They shopped for quite a while till they found one with the third seat option (apparently not too common).

Yup had to have them Added - Three on the sofa - two on the Love seat - and one each for the driver and the copilot.

All we have.

The GM "lambda" models: GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and the prior Saturn Outlook. All seat 7 or 8 (depending on second row seat choice) and the 3rd row seating is surprisingly comfortable for adults. We've had 7 adults in an '06 Acadia (with 2nd row buckets)for lengthy drives with no complaints at all. Both the FWD and AWD models are 4-down towable (fuse pull required)

OK, I'll ask, what exactly are you towing with? No matter what, it will need to be able to tow greater than 5klbs.
