Best small vehicle for towing 4 wheels down with class c Rv

I have a Coachmen 28 QB I have been towing a Toyota Camry on a tow dolly but would like to go to a 4 wheels down mode, suggestions for a reasonable cost vehicle?

You don't indicate what your budget is, new, used, how many persons, ect.
In any case, I'd vote for a Subaru, either new or used. Almost any Subi with a STICK SHIFT, any year, can be towed 4 down with no modifications. Reliable, all wheel drive, and easy to set up to tow .Between wife and I we've owned 6 since 1996, including her 2010 Outback and my 2013 Crosstrek (Impreza on steroids) that we tow.

We currently have a Toyota Camry. My wife and I travel with our two dogs. I would like to get a used car at a reasonable price but it seems like the Subarus I see advertised are not much cheaper than the new ones unless you get one with 70-100k miles. Same seems to be true of Jeeps, and they seem to be automatics.

Georgetown 335DS Autos That Can Be Towed

Is there a list of autos that a Georgetown 335DS can tow?
I'm looking at possibly getting a Jeep Wrangler and need to know "for sure" if it can be towed, 4 wheels down.

Help !

You can tow automatic Jeep as long as it is 4X4

Have a 5 speed manual Toyota Corolla, have towed it about 32,000 miles so far no issues, but Toyota's have to be manual to go four down.

Look for a good used Honda CRV. I still tow my 2004, AWD auto trans. No mods necessary, 4 wheels down, towed over 80k miles.

X2 on mini Cooper. We've towed our 6 speed MCS thousands of miles. Would be a great choice!

What's the most that can ride in a Mini?
I wondered about the Scion xB in a standard version, they're cheaper than a Mini and can seat 5.

We have several fleet Scion xBs and they're incredible little cars, never had one go to the shop yet.

Did you need to do any mods to the 500 in order to tow 4 down?
