Question Tow questions

Since I have not yet towed a vehicle behind my motorhome, although I have lots of towing experience- drove a tow truck years back but still...a few questions.
What vehicle types are you towing? I am looking at small trucks, Jeep wranglers, or a saturn.
What tow bar- equipment is recommended? How about hooking up brakes, etc. Is this necessary on one of these lighter towed vehicles?
Thanks for the ideas I am still looking for the roght vehicle to tow.
I know the Saturns are great for flat towing, but i am partial to the Wrangler. I have been looking at Trucks for 2 weeks, and all the decent Japanese ones are sold quickly. Ford ranger is a possibility.

Alan,

RV Today is doing a spot on setting up dingys on 5/2502 and 5/2602. It's on OLN at 6:00pm. It is usually pretty high level but sometimes helpful.

Motorhome magazine has also done some articles on that subject.

Dinghy bought

I bought a Saturn sl-2 to tow. Funny thing is it already had aRoadmaster tow set up, all I need to buy is the "stowmaster" bar. The prior owner toed it behind a winnebago for a few years. Any advice is appreciated on the bar purchase. I see Camping World has the bars for $300 or so.
