We tow a Ford Edge AWD. Tows great and is a comfortable ride when you are at your location.

We plan on long extended trips over the next few years across the US. We don't have to have the latest and greatest and we'll tow with a DP. Your suggestions will be helpful!

The Honda CRV is hard to beat, unless you need something with off-road capabilities! We love our 2013 CRV with AWD!

Jeeps

This was the topic of a campfire conversation recently, and no one could really answer this question, but why are they so hugely popular? I personally don't really see them as practical. From my observations, they don't get good gas mileage, have mediocre reliability, and the vast majority are never taken off road. It seems mostly nostalgic. I would be interested in hearing from some of you owners if you care to answer.

We recently traded our PT Cruiser for a new Fiat 500. I hated having the baseplate installed after driving it for a week, but the Roadmaster tow arms twist off easily, and it is barely detectable that it is a tow car when they aren't attached. It is fun to drive, easily towed, very economical, and offers good storage with the rear seats down.

We had a '97 Jeep GC. Very easy to tow but not totally dependable. The full time AWD was nice for what little "winter" weather we get here. But the '05 Odyssey is a much nicer riding vehicle, gets better mileage and is totally dependable!
