Get a stick shift to do four flat towing. I have a ford fusion that is really a Mazda with a Ford body and they say you can tow it but you better stop every 100 miles to start it and run it through the gears. I also had a 1997 5 speed stick shift Acura and towed it everywhere. If you do get an automatic you can buy an oil lubricating device from REMCO but it's like $2000.

Personally, I'd go with a mini cooper but that may not suit your needs!!!

There are many with personal opinions, usually in support of what they have chosen. Go figure!

Here are a couple of links:

What Cars Can Be Flat-Towed Behind an RV? on Edmunds.com

RV Towable Vehicles | Toads | Dingy | Lifestyle | List | Cars

Finding the ideal TOAD | RV Love

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

If you have a car in mind, Remco is a good source of information of it's suitability for towing.

Remco : The Towing Experts

Last word of caution, To be sure of towability, VERIFY using the Owner's Manual, DO NOT just take the word of a car dealer!

HHR, shift to neutral pull a fuse and go. There are a lot of good used light weight cars that make good toads. Read this forum and the towing guides. Good luck.

We tow a 2013 Honda Fit 5 speed manual 4-down and love it. Pop it in neutral and go. No pumps, no pulling fuses and only weighs 2500 pounds. Tons of room inside and makes a great commuter vehicle when you get where your going.
The downside is the ground clearance. If your looking to do some off-roading where you're going then a Jeep Wrangler might be the way to go. Honda CRV's and Jeeps are very popular toads for that reason.
