Looking at down sizing from a 2013 4 dr Wrangler to a 2013 Honda CRV.
I cannot find the curb weight of the CRV. We have a gasser now and want to reduce the weight we tow but still have room for a small mobility scooter and wheel chair in the back of the CRV.

Also, since the CRV is much lower in the front than the Jeep, what works to lower the Blue Ox towbar closer to the height of the of the CRV connections.

Towed a 2007 and a 2013 CR-V's, both AWD. I always thought they were 3,400 lbs. (Motorhome magazine says 3,400 lbs. for the '07 and 3,426 for the '13)

Very easy vehicles to tow and I used Blue Ox equipment. I had the M&G supplemental braking on the '07 and the Air Force One on the '13.

Good luck on your search!
