Best vehicle for towing behind 34'Bounder

Wanted to see any thoughts on the best vehicle for towing behind my Bounder. I have a 2007 Honda van I'm going to be trading in on this, so basically starting from scratch.
Would like to see your ideas,

First off, you must decide if you want to tow a car 4 wheels down or 2 wheels on a tow dolly. I suggest you read this: What Cars Can Be Flat-Towed Behind an RV? on Edmunds.com

When looking at a car for towing 4 down, DON'T TAKE THE WORD OF A SALESMAN. Look in the owner's manual to find out if they approve of towing and what must be done. Here's a couple of references to lists of vehicles:
Towable Vehicles List | Reference.com

Motorhome Towing Guide: Cars That Can Be Towed With 4 Wheels Down | The Fun Times Guide to RVing

Good luck and enjoy looking!

First thing to do , is get the Trailer tow weight rating for the coach.
It'll probably be 5,000lbs. Then you have a base line, weight, of vehicles to choose from, that fit your every day driving needs.
Many 4 wheel drive vehicles, with a neutral in the transfer case can be flat towed without expensive modifications.
With the tow bar system, base plates, transmission fluid pump ( optional depending on vehicle) and towed vehicle, brake system. Budget $5,000 to get the vehicle ready to tow. You can save about $ 1,300 or so if the pump system is not required.
And , I see Bob, types faster than I do; everyone types faster than I do.
