Moderate offroad and comfort I favor the Jeep Grand Cherokee - I aspire to a newer model ecodiesel that can be flat towed (I understand some newer Jeep drive trains may not be able to be flat towed). The hemi jeep has tremendous power, but less economy compared to diesel.

More sever offroad I would favor the Jeep Wrangler - lots of mod possibilities.

My future toad thoughts are leaning towards a F150 ecoboost titanium, or equivalent.

My thoughts,

Towr: 2007 Country Coach Allure 470 - 37 Sunset Bay Cummins 400 ISL
Toad: 2016 F150 King Ranch - 3.5L EcoBoost 4x4 Supercrew (curb weight 4,775 lbs)
Toad: SOLD 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee (yes, it has a Hemi) (curb weight 4,720 lbs)

Made a quick download of the manual and it is on page 235. "Towing your Vehicle"

CRV was too small for us. Just our opinion. We owned a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2Dr. Traded it in. Couldn't really fit four comfortably and the ride was pretty harsh for us. (We previously owned a Cherokee, Grand Cherokee (they road well but mileage was just so so) and another earlier Wrangler that was also pretty rough. We thought the 2013 would ride better but it was still too much.) Currently tow a used 2011 GMC Terrain and feel we have finally found the best all around toad for our needs. Comfortable. Enough power. Easy to hook up. Overcame having to pull one fuse by installing a fuse shut-off switch. Have not had any issues draining the battery. Do not use a toad battery charging cable. Understand that the Chevy Equinox is similar in terms of comfort, power and ability to tow.
However, despite what we or others like be sure to get whatever seems to fit your needs best and makes you happy. Safe travels.

We currently pull our 2011 Honda CR-V, with automatic transmission, on a Demco dolly. Thinking about pulling four-wheels down.

Will this model work? Any recommendations on a website where I can read about the modifications/equipment it will need?

Yep, with the CR-V they were all towable four down up to the 2015 model when they went to the CV trans.
