When we bought the 3010DS and started thinking about a toad, we were disappointed when we found we couldn't tow DW's new Renegade. We dropped back to our 2nd option, the Liberty. Other than the 3010DS, only Jeeps sit in our driveway. Our son bought our '04 Grand Cherokee a couple of years ago.

2015 Corolla 6 speed manual. All I have to do is run it 3 minutes before driving. I also get 40 mpg on the highway with it.

Bought a 2016 Sunseeker 3010DS in January, our first RV ever. After the decision was made to purchase the RV, we knew the toad would be a Jeep Wrangler because of the manual transfer case. Since January, we have flat towed the Wranger 5,500 miles using a Blue Ox tow bar set up and Brake Buddy system. NO problems and NO regrets.

Bought a four-door Wrangler in early 2008 more than three years before our first RV, a 3170 bought in late 2011. From Oklahoma we have towed the Wrangler to Nevada, Texas, Florida, and South Carolina (Texas, Florida, and South Carolina more than once) without a problem. The Wrangler is my daily driver and I may never sell it. I understand the newer Wranglers do not have a steering wheel lock, which would be convenient. We also love our 3170.

My Wrangler has M/S tires and has seen no unusual tire wear over the 20,000 plus miles we have towed it. A friend of mine has a 2010 four door Wrangler with a, I believe, two inch lift and much more aggressive tires. He tows behind his RV and his front tires have scalloped a bit, but not much. His Wrangler is also his daily driver. A tire store told him that it was from towing; that the Wrangler's front end was hunting. But then the tire store guy may have never been in a motorhome, may drive a Miata, and may have no real time basis for his opinion. I really don't know. Someone else told him it might be worn front shocks, which I could believe sooner than towing. In any event, my friend hasn't stopped towing his Wrangler.
