recommend a toad

I just wanted to ask people what kind of toads are popular. I understand my weight restrictions and have looked at tow guides to see what needs to be done to certain vehicles to be towed safely. I am looking for something to tow behind my Georgetown 364TS. I would prefer a SUV. Any advice welcome
Regards

Edit- didn't read all of post.

Pre 2014 CRV is a good choice.

For an suv...Subaru Forrester (manual transmission only). Super reliable, all wheel drive, super safe, road clearence of a stock Jeep, no speed or milage restrictions when towing.
No modifications needed..ignition to first on position, tranny to neutral, emergency brake off, and your ready to go.

I have to agree. You can disconnect the drivetrain electronically or manually and flat tow quite easily.

I opted for the Chevy Colorado. Not only towable with 4 down (4 wheel drive only), but I now have the pick up bed to haul more junk.

Good luck with your decision

Just purchased a 2011 Chevrolet HHR to use as a toad. It's a small SUV. Haven't gotten it hooked up yet but have a friend that has an identical one and he loves it.

I am having a 2014 Honda CRV Modded to tow. The owners manual gives easy to tow prep instructions for 4 wheel down tow.

Saw a class A on the interstate the other day towing an F-250 Super Crew long bed.
Because you can never have too much toad.
