Our good friend has an Element that they have had since new and tow. It works for them as they have two dogs and it is easy for the dogs to get in and out and it is easy to clean due to the utilitarian nature of the vehicle.

That being said, I am 6' 5" and find it quite uncomfortable. We tow a CRV and find it a better fit for us. Quieter, more comfortable and a better ride.

The Element is a Honda, so it is a great toad, but I feel the CRV suits us better for our needs.

Hello All, first reply post. We are new to motor homes travel. Backpacked forever as well as many tents over the years. Stepping up to motor home from a Fleetwood pop-up dragonfly1. Starting used to get the feel from bottom up. We got a 2011 coachman Mirada, been great so far. Had to deal with the f53 death wobble but Davis trutrac fixed that. Found a 2003 Honda element with 92k with manual tranny so should be set. Getting base plate on now at our rv shop, and picked up a new blue ox aventa tow bar. Getting to a site with no toad, not as enjoyable. Will be ready now, as kayaks have a place on top of the element too.
