Count us as one more towing a 4 door jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Our is a Rubicon with a 2 1/2" lift and larger than stock tires. A great "crossover" vehicle. We've driven it from
Western Colorado to a funeral in Hobbs NM. Not like my Escalade but not bad either. We love the old mining roads around Ouray, Silverton, Telluride CO. Great for that stuff. We've pulled a tow dolly and a trailer but 4 down is the only way for us now. The steering column doesn't lock on ours now ( I had it fixed that way) and, for me anyway, there's is no easier/faster way to hook up/unhook. Don't have to park a trailer away from the campsite, don't have to stop and check tie down straps (they will stretch especially if wet). Much easier for me. I know others like different, but to each his own.

We find the HHR suits our needs great. Its light, has lots of storage, and is versatile. Owned 4 since 2007. A very reliable car and comfortable too.

we tow a 2001 Saturn SC2 standard 5 speed. Turn key to accessories, accessories turned off, put into nuetral and off we go. Doesn't add mileage to speedometer, no fuses to pull and we lose about .5 MPG @ 55-60 MPH.

Just finished our maiden run towing the new Explorer about 700 miles. No issues and pulled great. After the Tahoe with a transfer case I was a little concerned about all wheel drive, but no worries for now.

Either the 2004 Wrangler Rubicon or the 2011 CRV depending on where we are going and what we plan on doing:

My opinion for you is as new a Wrangler unlimited as you can afford with automatic transmission, blue ox tow system, and a portable brake system that sits on the driver floor. Also, I have found the best fool proof way for tail lights on a wrangler is magnetic attached lights wired in to the coach trailer wiring. This is a fun, proven tow vehicle and great for exploring. We tow a wrangler 2 dr but it sounds like you would be more comfortable with a 4 dr. Newer ones are really refined these day but $$.
