Whatever vehicle you have is most ideal. We tow our minivan on a dolly and it works for us. Others tow CRVs, Jeeps, SmartCar, etc. Just depends on whether or not they can be towed 4 wheels down, 2 wheels down, no wheels

2015 FR3 30DS

I dolly tow a Camry, or 4 down a Civic, and just recently got a Saturn Vue to 4 down. (The grandson now drives the Civic.)

Ford C-Max Energi, 4 wheels down using blue ox equipment. Charge the C-Max overnight via the 20 amp outlet and get 25 miles on a charge; when that runs out the hybrid engine kicks in. On a bad day the car gets 65 mpg; on a good day 99. Perfect for our traveling party of 4 adults.

I tow a 2015 Kia Soul.

Very inexpensive to buy.

Towing and set up is effortless.

We flat tow a 4 door jeep and it is right at the max tow limit

We also tow dolly a Hyundai Santa Fe on occasion....

Not sure how a few of these options are meeting payload and total weight limits....
