Given that you live in Colorado I would recommend something with AWD or 4WD. And given that you have 2 kids and a dog you need something spacious. I drive a Frontier 4x4 king cab mt and it works great for me. However, it would be too small for you. My dad drives a 4dr Toyota Tundra and that is perfect for 4 people and a dog. It has 4wd and can tow like 10k which is overkill for you, but it is so comfortable inside for everyone ,its great for long trips. And the fuel economy is about the same as my smaller Frontier. Plus they say you will do better in an accident in a bigger truck than a smaller vehicle.

The 2015 3red generation Sienna has a 3500/350 rating without any package added. In fact Toyota does not (or did not) offer the supplemental towing equipment for the Sienna so hitch and wiring are aftermarket. The brake and lights are a bit of a PIA to add but doable and once installed, yes the Sienna does just fine with a FBRV up to about 3000 lbs and not overloaded, taken off road, etc. Earlier Sienna's (generation 1 or 2) might have had a factory tow package of some sort.. IDK.

VW Tiguan - option

We tow our 13' Scamp with a 2013 VW Tiguan. 4 wheel drive, 7" clearance, roomy enough and you can find them used under $20k for sure. By my calculations we are 700 lbs under what the manual says it can tow. It has towed well.

I mentioned the Tundra because it is quite comfortable for 4 people. However, it might be out of your price range for low miles. The 4dr Frontier is a cheaper option if you like the idea of a smaller truck. Still has room for 4 but I don't think it is as comfortable as the Tundra. Right now in Canada the used Frontier has actually appreciated because they are not selling the 2020 Frontier here. I could sell mine for about the same price or more as what I payed for it 3 years ago. Also I see bolers are going for 3x what I payed for mine just 3 years ago.
