We looked at the CRV, not 4 down towable anymore.
Considered a couple of manual transmission cars, DW said "WE" had some of those when were in our 20/30/40/50's not in our 60's!
Jeep was next, we've had a Chrysler product.
Fiat was next, same as the Jeep
, at the time too small.
Smart car, steering while in tow issues, too small.
We ended up with a Ford C-Max, no fuses to pull
, plenty of room in tail light for bulb wired from MH, etc!
Hook up cmax, start, put in neturel, turn off, get out.
Hot wire from MH keeps the battery charged.
We have over 10k towed mile, NO problems
One problem with the C-Max, it has been recalled several time, but from recent news reports that's probably true of "most" car built in 2013/2014.
