Maybe a basecamp?

sold the FC19 and chevy silverado tow vehicle, now thinking about a base camp so I can take my motorcycle along on trips.

Got a new SUV - one of the remaining '14 Toyota FJs and it should tow one just fine

There has been a couple of threads in the last week or so highlighting the deficiencies of the FJ as a tow vehicle.....a Basecamp maybe small and light but you will still have the issue that the FJ (even with the tow package) only has 4 way electrics (lights and blinkers), so you will need to install the additional wiring for trailer power and I guess brakes (assuming the Basecamp has electric brakes?).

I have a Basecamp & I tow it behind a Toy Tacoma V6, 4WD, with no problems, 70+. And yes the Basecamp does have electric brakes.
