Towing

We are looking for a new car to tow. Looking in the 2014-2015 years. What is everyone towing? Thanks for any help.

2014 was the last year for towable CR-V's. I had a really nice one but traded it for a 2014 Wrangler to get rid of the Honda's towing limits.

No off-roading for me so I purchased a CRV; I appreciate its go-cart type manners.

However your choice should be what suits you (not us).

I bought a 2004 Jeep Liberty 4x4 Columbia Ed in October 2003.
Still towing it 4 down. I think we’re at about 80,000 + miles.
Next one will be a Wrangler when my Liberty dies.
Still runs great. Looks good. Solid

If you want easy to setup for towing look at a Chevrolet Equinox. All models in the years you mentioned are towable 4down. Simply remove one fuse (or bypass), hook it up to the motorhome, put it in neutral, release the parking brake, and turn the key to OFF, DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY. Your ready to tow.
I've towed mine over 35,000 miles without a problem.

If you are looking for a smaller and lighter toad, we have had great luck with our 2016 Fiat 500. Simply put it in neutral and off you go.

Second on the Equinox. Easiest toad I ever had. 2016 towed about 50-60000 miles , oil change, no trans flush ( like on CRV ). Towed great. Good Luck The Muffin Man.
