My vote is for the HHR. I bought an 07 and with the Aventa tow bar and base plate it is IMHO the best combo, plus the HHR as a road machine is a very good choice.

Thats the weight on the Wrangler spec sheet. Even at that weight I dont even know it is back there, and to me its worth twice the weight in fun!

That's too much weight for our rig, I think.

I am quite happy with my 1998 Jeep (non-Grand) Cherokee. It weighs 3900 pounds (measured real weight) with some off-road acessories. These were made until 2001 and some of them are quite nicely equipped. Mine has been bullet proof.

They are readily available for good prices. You can set them up for whatever you want. Mine is set up for serious (not rock crawling) off road use but is still reasonable for street use. It is not my daily driver.

The Wrangler didn't work for me as I wanted a steel roof, creature comforts, and room to carry 4 adult humans.

Good luck with your search.

I have been towing a 2007 Honda CRV 4 x 4 for the last 21,000 miles without any problems behind my motorhome.

I'm jumping in here kind of late, sorry about that. We own a 2000 Pontiac sunfire convertable, can that be towed without a pump? The motorhome dinghy guide only goes back to 2002 and it says OK to that model. I believe the 2000 is the same but do not want to make a mistake. Thanks for your help, DACOTAH

DH wants to go that route too. Which one did you decide on? Good luck, I'd like to hear how it works out for you.

2 Resources for you to check:

Hi there, We just bought a 45' Signature and we are excited to have our Ford Explorer painted to match to be our tow car. It is a 4.0 w/automatic tranny. Is this a good towcar? Any major mods? Its been an awsome truck...321,000 miles and zero problems, its become part of the family so we would love to bring it with us.
