    Look, I seriously doubt that somebody who owns two late model CUV's is going to be the kind of person interested in buying a clapped out 1980's truck for $1500.

    A lot of unibody vehicles cannot use a WDH.. Any trailer with an open "C" channel frame can't use them either.. Our Palomino which had a GVWR of over 3000lbs was like this..

    One more thought.. The OP's vehicles are V6's or 4 cylinder engines ??

    The Highlander will be a V6, and the CX9 is a turbo-4.

    Highlander would make the better TV IMO then..

    I agree with that. Lots of people use Highlanders and Pilots to tow smaller travel trailers. They can easily handle pop-ups, even HW pop-ups.

    Some vehicles also require an update to the on board computer. I added an OEM (mopar) hitch and wiring harness to my first Jeep. Trailer wouldn't charge and turn signals wouldn't function properly until I had the dealer update the computer.
