2009 Honda Fit automatic; great little car.
Manufacturer endorses flat towing. Owner's Manual has a section specifically on towing the car behind a motorhome.

Wow, are DriVer and me the only ones dragging a Staturn Vue around the country? I really thought I'd see more of 'em in this thread. Oh well as long as it works 'eh.

2007 Jeep Wrangler. As said before, it's all about fun. The Jeep tows great (four down), hooks up easy, goes anywhere, and doesn't look ridiculous when it's all dirty from road spray. Another benefit is the easy parking when the 40' Coach hogs most of the campsite.

Joe we tow our 06 Vue most of the time as of late. Compared to the truck I forget it is back there and is such a nice riding car it will be sorely missed when we have to replaced it with whatever .

2000 BMW 528i manual transmission. Has followed me for 12,000 miles. Car has 120,000 miles now, still gets 30+ mpg. Everybody says you cannot tow a Beemer, not true.
