Ended up going to Uhaul. Total package. $2700. Have not tried it out yet. Going to Cajun country the end of the month. Trying it out then. Thank you all for the input !

I talked to someone this weekend about pulling a CRV four down and he recommend not even though the owners manual says its safe up to 65 mph. He cautioned that when they say 65 they mean 65 and not 70.
Was there anything special you did to the CRV to make it's transmission good to tow? I would hate to think we have to constantly watch our speed or risk destroying the transmission in this thing.

Yes the manual does say not to tow over 65 which is not a problem for us cause we stay between 60 & 65. Also there are special instructions. Run car 5 minutes then go thru all gears..run engine an additional 3 minutes in neutral. Shut off.. leave in acc mode to keep steering wheel free from locking. Repeat every 8 hrs or 500 miles. Of course this is on a automatic CRV. Heard of others that have towed the CRV with no problems. Looking forward to many trips towing this one. Eve
