Looking at a 2014 Ford Edge

Need a new tow vehicle for the 2012 HR Aluma-lite model 32PBS we just purchased.
The coach is very low to the ground (about 12") at the receiver.

I want the 2014 Touring CRV but hubby prefers the ride of the 2014 Ford Edge. As this will the all purpose vehicle as well, it may be worth the extra weight, gas mileage, plus the extra purchase price for the Edge.

But what about a tow package?

Which one for which toad? Will they both take the same towing pkg & if so what about pricing to install, is that the same? Which is a good set up for a low clearance receiver?

I see so many CRV's & they are cheaper up front, lighter & better gas mileage but I have to agree the ride is not as nice.

We need to decide really soon....

My toad is a 2014 Ford Edge SEL AWD. Had Roadmaster products installed at CW using the discounted installation offer they have this year. Sterling All-Terrain Tow Bar, EZ Twist hidden tow bracket, Roadmaster Fusemaster to disconnect fuse to avoid battery drain, and the Roadmaster Brakemaster Air supplemental brake system. I have been very happy. Not sure my hitch receiver is that low, but I have to use an inverted 8" drop hitch to get my tow bar level. I've read mixed reviews about CW, but had good luck with this transaction, and the system was much cheaper installed than my RV dealer would do and I got a better system. I have never owned or towed a CRV so I can't give you any comparison.
