Most popular: JEEP. Why, Because there is like one model that can not be towed 4-down without modification.

Many others can also be towed 4-down, but you will have to check it out and research.. But dang near all JEEPS can.

Another advantage is that on some motor homes (mine for example) the hitch receiver is kind of high off the ground.. So is the bumper on many Jeeps and thus I don't need a drop hitch which greatly reduces towing capacity.

Of course if you dolly it, any Front wheel drive works (Well almost there are a few that do not) or trailer it with any car save some models of Lincoln that you need to do some extra work on to trailer.
Home is where I park it!

2003 Jeep Rubicon. Just happened to have one before we bought the MH. Have towed it about 2k miles, easy to hook up, great to take off-roading and other than wanting to switch out the off road tires for something a little quieter on the highway, all is good!

No top, so after a pull in a rain. It may be a lot of work to clean the interior of it every time. And could be cold or wet driving it at times.

I prefer my HHR to tow. Pull a 2 AMP fuse, put it in N, key on ACC and start pulling.

Radio Flyer has no transmission issues! Clothes line instead of tow plate. But it wags its tail unless you lock the steering and add 50lbs to it. Bet the tires get pretty hot going over 35 mph though.

Mark, check with your local camping world, or motorhome dealer.

Here is a link to a google search, start calling and find out who's your best bet.

Good luck!
