The best is many factors. What is important is weight first,then ease of setting up. By ease I mean fuses to be pulled, key positions etc. All will need a base plate, tow bar or a tow dolly, trailer options.
The ask mother which one she likes and buy that one
Add one more criteria if it applies to your style of driving some can not exceed 55 MPH while towed and some 65

YOur tow hitch is rated 5,000 pounds, and depending on how heavy your motor home is you may have to knock a thousand off that (more or less)
Now the best towed, in my not very humble opinion, is a 4-wheel drive JEEP with manual transfer case.. But then I'm a jeep kind of guy.
Fact is you can tow dang near anything up to the tow rating.. HOwever be aware of this.. IF the vehicle you tow is low to the ground (NOT like a jeep) you may need a drop hitch adapter, this .. . Reduces your towing capacity by a whole lot.
But I'm truly a fan of JEEP.
That said I'd not object to a Mini-Cooper or Smart Car to tow eitehr.

Judgeing from what I see on the road,Jeep vehicles are the most popular. Our own Jeep Grand Cherokee,can not be towed 4-down,we bought it before we bought the MH,and chose the wrong 4WD option. We trailer the Grand Cherokee,when we want to take it. Our Dodge Dakota Quad cab was bought for towing behind the MH.The Dakotas are no longer in production.

Seriously though. If you will be towing four down the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a favourite all round multi purpose vehicle for those that need cargo capacity, maybe some off road ability. There were some models that are not towable four down so READ THE MANUAL BEFORE YOU BUY.
I hate towing four down but If I have have to again it will probably be a grand cherokee. Hopefully that will never happen. Until then we will sticky with our Kleinen Flitzer.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
If yours is anything like my Mountain Aire you actually have a 4000# tow limit. If you can't find the correct answer I would call Newmar and they can tell for sure. I got the Saturn Vue but I thikk my next one will be a Ford Escape. Weight is around 3500# and towable with automatic trans.

we have towed both a chevy hhr and a chevy traverse. both tow 4 down and are easy. of course the hhr is lighter,easier and can be towed with a lower grade tow bar. it is not correct that any front wheel drive can be towed on a dolly. the hhr acc to chevy should not be towed on a dolly. because of the low ground clearence they believe the bottom(of something) will rub and cause damage. it is a breeze to tow 4 down. in our travels, jeeps,saturns and chevy malibu and hhr seem to dominate the towables. but i have seen pickups,mercedes and hummers all being towed. look at motorhome website for cars that can be towed and pick the one that meets your needs. i personally prefer to tow 4 down but i am sure others feel tow dolly's or trailers meet their needs better. good luck and enjoy
One word of caution to all those with their weights on tow vehicles......... Manufacturer weights are based on their basic models, I believe a tank of fuel is included.
If you add items such as power seats, power lift gates, sunroofs,and 3rd row seating this all adds to weight. Then like most of us when we throw in such things as golf clubs, water , beer, cokes, chairs and extra stuff the weigh adds up. Might I suggest when you get ready to travel your first stop is at a scale and see what the whole package weighs and watch that 3000 lbs toad move up a few hundred lbs.

The best one is the one that hooks itself up to the towbar, never forgets to remind you the coloum is locked ,does not flat spot the tires when you drag it up your driveway in park, starts when you get there, and gets 57 mpg and has a curb weight of 100 lbs.
