Neighbors have a CRV.... which rides worse then my Jeep, something I wasn't expecting

I would suggest at least taking a hard top jeep wrangler for a drive before you make up your mind. Guessing MPG on a wrangler would be 20-30% less vs a CRV? Maybe worse??

Some vehicles also state when towing do not travel over 300 miles a day, not sure if it's just a Ford thing or if other manufacturers state that??

You could also do a Miata

Zeeks House A Small crv would probably be better for us. Don't think we would do any off roading
In that case, you might want to look into something like we have. The GMC Terrain is just a smidgen larger than a CRV, but offers more options/accessories. The Chevy Equinox is a sister of the Terrain (just a different body style) and is also a good choice.

We went through this exercise a few years back and settled on the Terrain. It does require a fuse to be pulled, but it is just a simple matter to replace the fuse with a switch. Turn the key to "ON", put it in neutral and flip the switch. GMC does recommend a speed limit of 65, but I've exceeded that on a few times but do not on a prolonged basis (I typically drive the mh at around 62 - 65). After five years and 80,000 miles (probably like 10,000 in tow), we have yet to experience ANY kind of problem with it. Just recently replaced the tires and battery.

Our Terrain, which is the top of the line with all options available except for the V6 and AWD) gets about 25mph "overall" and typically 32 or so on the highway and weighs right at 4000 lbs.

It was a good decision for us.
