Best TOAD + Tower?

I'm just running some numbers and seeing if I can afford this...

My parents have a motorhome I will use from time to time... however, it is 4+ hours away so I would like to have a trailer at home for more frequent use.

Would like to trade in my 2007 Hyundai Entourage and get a vehicle that would...

- be towed 4 down behind Coachmen Pursuit when we take motorhome
- be able to tow a medium size trailer (not a 5er, just a TT)

What would you get - planning on getting USED... don't want to spend a lot of money on this...

I found this chart here Truck and SUV Towing Capacity Charts that shows towing capacities for all vehicles (truck/suv).

What would really be super helpful is if I could cross reference these four data sets...

1. towing capacities
2. can be towed 4 down
3. average MPG
4. price range

Anyone know of such a tool?

I had a Grand Cherokee before my present selection of vehicles and I would recommend one for your situation. Get a V8 and you will have the power to pull, a nice riding vehicle and a great one to tow behind the motorhome. Make sure it has a neutral on the transfer case and you will be good to go.
