They are a Honda Compact Recreational Vehicle and, as mentioned, have been around about 15 years. Once you see what one looks like, you will see them all around you, all of the time. I think that the current model is the third generation.

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.

A good point Jon. Everyone's situation is different and cookie cutter comments don't work.

In our case the G35 sedan/23', works great with the pro set up, WDH, and we are within the car's axle ratings for the car when hitched up. Note that is with just the two of us. If we had a car load of people and a trunk full of stuff we would be over the payload rating and it wouldn't work.

Once again..... Every situation is different.

I concur with Jon
We towed a 13' Scamp, a 13' Lil' Bigfoot and a 13' Hunter with a CRV and we too had to watch loads very carefully, never carried a tank of water and also drained the PITA black tank in the Scamp before towing. With two peeps it's possible to stay under 1500 lbs, but you have to be very careful, especially with a front bath Scamp.

Other than that, we found the CRV (2008 as I recall), that looked just like the one in the last pic, (Tea Green also) to tow without problems.
