Now before we even start talking about what’s better (or what’s best), just remember that this is all subjective people. I want you to know that there are a variety of options out there, some more appropriate than others, but all the options for a good RV tow vehicle could be a simple Mini Cooper, to a full sized sedan, to trucks and SUVs. Two things matter: do you have the right tow vehicle for your RV lifestyle, and do you have enough horsepower to tow it?

These are two of the most important things to consider. The towing limits of your RV may automatically rule out certain makes and models. However, if you are pulling a full sized SUV on an excursion that you’d only need a Fiat for, then maybe it’s time to rethink your tow vehicle.

Let me first say that those of you in motorhomes really understand the value of having a reliable tow vehicle. It goes without saying that having the added mobility that comes with a tow vehicle is extremely valuable. So, that got me thinking, “What Is The Best Tow Vehicle?” After doing research and hitting up forums, I started to get the picture that the best vehicle is the easiest to tow and can still meet your needs.

Now, we aren’t the world’s experts on tow vehicles, so make sure you consult other resources also. Specifically, start with your RV’s owner/operator manual. You will find appropriate tow weights in there.
