Suggestions on new tow vehicle
OK, everyone, I've been avoiding turning in my Toyota 4Runner (V6, 3.6 liter) for a larger vehicle for almost a year now. I know it's marginal as a safe puller for my Globetrotter.
I was traveling up Interstate 5 on Sunday talking with a friend about wanting a new tow vehicle but not wanting to spend the $$$, and ended up in a traffic jam. After 20 minutes I saw the cause. A 30' or so white box was in the center median with the entire curbside wall missing, bumper to tongue.
Chairs, clothes, microwave, rolls of paper towels, food and anything else you could think of were all over the freeway. Skidmarks went from one side of the 5 lane freeway to the other.
I felt like it was an omen. So now, I need some feedback. I'm looking for another tow vehicle. Chevy Tahoe's have always caught my eye. but I love the reliability and longevity of Toyotas. I need an SUV or van so I can have my dogs with me in the same space. I am open to a used vehicle, but not too old. I will also use it for my business so it has to look sharp.
I know you all have opinions on this topic, so I'd like to hear your suggestions on what to get and what to avoid.
