A lot depends on what you need. We generally travel with another couple. Consequently, we need something that holds four people comfortably. I don't want to dolly the car and most of the cars discussed here are only two passenger vehicles or larger vehicles that need to be on a dolly.
To get into a comfortable four passenger car or truck, you're pretty much forced to go newer. Older vehicles are fine, but I prefer a newer more comfortable car with all the bells and whistles (as someone put it). I worked hard all my life and I like being comfortable.
We just bought a 2013 CRV two days ago. We now have two toads. I towed my 2012 Silverado for the past 5 years, but decided I wanted something smaller for a coast to coast trip this summer. We'll probably use the CRV and then may sell it if we don't use it enough when we get back.
We're actually looking for a smaller truck that is towable, but still comfortable for four. The new Canyon/Colorado are nice, but there will be several new trucks out next year that I want to see before I buy a smaller truck. I've always owned a truck.
