Welcome to the Forum! We're glad you are participating!

For the most discussion, check out the "Toads & MH Towing" forum under "RV Forums" There are lots of discussions on the best vehicles to tow there.

halbrady,
Do you want a vehicle to tow a trailer (tow vehicle) or a vehicle to tow behind a motorhome (towed vehicle, sometines also called a towed or toad)?

For the former, any of the major brands will do a good job provided you don't exceed the tow ratings or any of the weight ratings (GVWR, GAWR, etc.) of the tow vehicle.

For the latter, most of the major brands of trucks are towable 4-down if they have 4WD with a transfer case that can placed in neutral.

Not clear what you are asking re "Class A" tow vehicle. Are you towing the truck behind a class A coach, or towing something behind the truck?

To tow behind a coach with all four wheels on the ground, you will need a 4WD drive truck.
