We have a 2020 190BH and we are looming for a new vehicle  to tow it. Prefer not to have a full size pickup or large SUV (Suburban, Tahoe, etc). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Probably, you are looking for a small or medium-sized towing vehicle with a reasonable quote. See my suggestions:

Chevrolet Equinox: Yes, I am talking about 2019 version of Chevrolet Equinox. It is also a great option for towing and can tow up to 3500 pounds. No doubt, you can consider this lightweight vehicle for towing your Retro.

2019 Ford Escape: With high torque and horsepower, Ford Escape could be an excellent towing vehicle. This small towing vehicle belongs to new generation vehicles of Ford and comes with 3 engine options. It’s towing capacity is 3500 lbs that’s why it could be a reliable option for your 2020 190BH. You can also see numerous other towing vehicles of Ford here https://www.caravansforsale.co.uk/towing-vehicles/ford. Moreover, if you have a limited budget, then you can also go with used towing vehicles as well.

Jeep Wrangler: I am a big fan of jeeps, especially when it comes to camping. With great off-road capacities, Jeep Wrangler can carry 2000 to 3500 lbs. For your 2020 190BH, I would suggest 4 doors Jeep Wrangler because it can carry 3500 pounds.

In the same token, Kia Sorento and Ford Edge could also be some durable towing options with affordable price tags, and these are also included in small-sized towing vehicles.

Me too! Just bought a candy apple red-reverse 190 BH for the grandkids, and when we ordered it, we found a matching 2020 Ford Explorer to tow all of us. So far so good- we love it. Seats 6 including passenger bucket seats and a hearty tow package with a great back-up mirror that factors in a setting for a 20 foot trailer- nice on the interstate, great for hitching up.  I’m a 5’1 grandmother looking to do all this alone someday (no time soon) so I had to be able to manage all this myself. 

The Red Retro RV is a stunner- just love it! The outdoor shower has already been put into valuable service as a handy outdoor dishwashing station. Best of all, during “Corona Season” while everything is closed, after hours, if you add a fold-up baby pool and a sous-vide, you now have a portable hot tub- It’s glamping at its finest!

One last perk- The Explorer has a rear DC outlet at the tailgate. Amazon sells a full sized ice chest that is AC/DC: it goes from wall- plugged in my kitchen the night before to load my fridge to tailgate plugged-in for the duration of the trip and back. At the campsite, I plug it into the outside AC socket & now can keep bottled drinks & larger items outside the camper for easy access. 

Hope this helps 🙂
