Smaller, lighter camping solutions keep popping up for today’s outdoor lovers, and so has a new crop of the best cars for towing a pop-up camper.
Now, truth be told, there actually aren’t that many of them. Most automakers are now steering customers towards crossovers, trucks, and SUVs for their towing needs, so much so that the majority of the latest passenger cars aren’t officially rated for towing at all. It puts some folks in a bit of quandary, though, since a lot of popup campers weigh well under 1,000 lbs., which means that the five-figure towing limits of a full-size pickup, for example, are hardly necessary.
The cars that are tow-rated, however, come in some surprising shapes and sizes. Check out which ones made our short list, and always remember to double-check your owner’s manual before hitching up and hitting the highway.
