RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

Thanks again everyone. Looking at the SUVs that are capable of safely towing our trailer, we have decided to just get a midsize truck. While I still like the use ability of an SUV (interior space for groceries etc as we live in a climate that gets lots of snow) it is nothing that a tonneau cover couldn’t assist with and would be more useful for camping etc. Love SUVs but do NOT want a massive SUV with three rows. Those things are giants so will opt for open truck bed space again.

RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

What price point? not sure yet but definitely on the lower end. Definitely not looking for a luxury vehicle. I will likely be getting something a few years old.

RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

Right-finding an SUV with a tow capacity of 5000lbs seems like there are a lot of options. 6000lbs plus, they are either massive vehicles or else very top of-the-line. I have been looking around at 5000lb tow capacities and that is why I was curious about SUV suggestions. If 5000lb is realistic for this trailer, loaded with gear, that gives far more options than 6000lbs+.

RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

You all know you’re stuff. Thank you! Going to do some reasearch this weekend. Might end up just getting a smaller sized pickup (used to have a Denali Sierra and it was too big for me to comfortably drive but a smaller one might be better for everyday use).

RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

I would prefer a body on frame. Durango or Tahoe would fit the bill. Tahoe can be had with the new 3.0 diesel so mileage would be good. Thanks for those suggestions. I have some research to do about body on frame. It is certainly a bit of a job to sort out since all the promo for these small trailers shows small SUV’s towing them....guess they have no gear, family or passengers to bring along.

Looking for SUV recommendation

Currently have a Hyundai Santa Fe and used it to tow a light tent trailer (no trailer brakes), no problem. With Covid closing bathhouses, we have been looking to upgrade, and just bought a Jayco Jay Flight SLX7 184BS model (dry weight of about 3400lbs). We need to trade in the SUV to something that can safely tow this (Santa Fe is limited to 1600lbs). Still prefer an SUV and this will be my primary vehicle for work, school drop offs etc, (camping a few times each summer). Gas mileage is important as we are in BC where gas prices are ridiculously high (I get about 8L/100km with the Santa Fe with is pretty good). Which SUVs would anyone recommend that would tow this trailer well but still be a good everyday vehicle? We have two kids (in booster seats) and a dog. Appreciate any insight you might have!
