What year is your Lexus?

I was told recently that all Chevys were towable and told by a car salesman the Chevy Traverse 4WD was towable. Confusing! I will check out the Motorhome web page towing guide.
Eight years ago I bought a 2004 CR-V. When we bought our class C and started RVing we added everything to the CR-V to tow it. We're still dragging it around the country, now behind our Axis. New Honda HR-V and Honda Fit can be ordered with a six speed manual transmission and flat towed. Have you considered a used CR-V since you had one before? I have two of them; both 2004. One has been subjected to a young driver and is still going strong after 7 years of his driving. Will he ever finish college??????

Yes, I have thought of a used CRV and that may be what I end up with since I am familiar with it. After I sold my CRV and RV, I bought a 2015 Nissan Rogue and really like it, but now towable and whatever I tow has to be my main car also. Good luck on the furure college graduation!!

2010 Chevy HHR. Its an automatic, only requirements are shift to N, dont exceed 65mph, and pull one fuse. I installed a switch for the fuse. So I push a button. Love it, easy peasy. I chose front end cost and set up to flat tow. Literally can hook up and unhook in less than 15 min by myself.

We tow a 2014 Fiat 500L. Great little car for touring. It has lots of windows and good backseat space for another couple and a hatch in the back for storing your shopping. Also, gets good MPG on a 13 gallon tank.
(manual transmission only).

I'll bet that it gets even BETTER mileage, while pushing your RV!

Same with my CR-V. It took a few trips before I learned about the fuse switch. It's a life saver. I really got tired of wiggling under the steering wheel to get to the fuse. What a pain. Hooking up and unhooking now really goes fast. While DW goes through the gears I do the hookup/unhook. She has timed it to 2 minutes flat a couple of times.
