Because the CRV is marginal for a 13' egg, you also need to consider how many people and how much stuff you will be carting along beyond basic food and clothes. Tow ratings typically only factor in one or two people and minimal cargo in the vehicle. We have a CRV and a Pilot, but with four people plus an awning
, outdoor kitchen, extra ice chest, chairs, and bicycles (and mountain/canyon grades to deal with), we won't be towing with the CRV. If it were just my wife and I, packing lightly, we'd probably be fine.
