RE: favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

Let me edit it a bit. Max dry TT weight will be 2500lb, not 3500lb. Looking into teardrops, Aliner, etc.

RE: favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

Right now, my short list is: Outback 2.4/turbo 3500lb tow Subaru Ascent 2.4/turbo 5000lb tow Honda Passport 3.4L/V6 5000lb tow Toyota Highlander 3.5L/V6 5000lb tow I looked at the Rav4 and really liked it. It is very tempting. The wheelbase seems the shortest though. I hope to test drive them and that will thi the list out methinks.

RE: favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

I would consider a lightly used car, maybe 1yr old. My pilot has 242K miles on it and is running like a top. It has no tow package and I am reluctant to invest in it to bring it up to towing snuff. Originally, my plan was to go to 300K miles before looking for a car. However, recent close calls due to the blind spots has me rethinking that. Also, I really like the safety features on new cars.

favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

Hi, Newbie here. Wife and I are looking into a small trailer (Aliner, Scamp, teardrop, etc) for maybe next year. We want something small so we can tow it with a car/SUV. I am thinking <3500lb total weight. My current car is a 2009 Pilot which is very long in the tooth. I relly need a new car so, I am shopping for that first. It will also be my daily drive car so, gas mileage is important, as is driving comfort. It will also be our tow vehicle in the future. I'd prefer a crossover or compact SUV or something like that. My Pilot is chunky and gas mileage isn't great (< 20mpg highway, towing nothing). Plus, it has blind spots which bother me. I want to replace it soon. Budget is <$35K so high end vehicles are out of the picture. Some cars I am considering: Subaru Outback Honda Passport Toyota Highlander I was wondering what folks use (and like) for towing their small trailers. Whatcha got??
