Do you own an SUV?

According to one of our past surveys, 83 percent of you own a truck. Now, that’s a whole lot of you. But now we’re wondering about SUVs. Do you own an SUV?

It’s no secret that SUVs have taken over the roads the last several years. Sedan sales have declined and SUV sales have skyrocketed. What’s the most popular SUV? According to Insurify, it’s the Ford Explorer. And what’s the state with the highest number of SUVs on the road? Montana. Followed by Wyoming and Colorado.

Please vote in the poll below and tell us if you own an SUV. Thanks!


At last! A directory of where to camp on public lands!
The Bureau of Land Management Camping book describes 1,273 camping areas managed by the BLM in 14 Western states. Details for each camping area include the number of campsites, amenities, facilities, fees, reservation information, GPS coordinates, and more. You’ll want this book if you camp or are interested in camping on BLM land. Learn more or order.

Actually own two. Our daily driver 2008 Acura that can’t be flat towed, and just picked up a 2012 Cadillac SRX, flat towable with the push of one button located under the shift boot. Just can’t bring ourselves to part with the Acura with 40,000 miles as nobody wants to pay what it’s worth (to me haha).

We tow with a Ford truck and have an SUV Subaru Forester as our “car”. Great car for all types of road conditions. It’s our choice of vehicles for any real snow travel.

When you get older, it’s so much easier to get in and out of an SUV than a sedan.

Toyota 4Ruinner, 2008 version. And it’s the 3rd 4Runner I’ve had.

First one was best…. tail gate folded down, tail gate/window up…. great spontaneous camping car. Good for sleeping and skywatching. In fact, DH was with me and also saw the same UFO I did! Central Nevada … yes, just nortth of the the Nevada Test Range.

For real. Looked like a satellite as we watched. But I’ve never seen a satellite do what this did next. Crazy maneuvers.

The poll didn’t ask if you owned a truck.

Living on a farm, we did until recently. The SUV finally gave up the ghost and was replaced by a sub-compact (how’s that for going from the sublime to the ridiculous?). We still have a pickup for when we need cargo capacity.

2010 Toyota Sequoia…most comfortable ride I’ve ever had. Never had one problem with it. Just keep up with routine maintenance.

We have 3 SUVs. A 2009 BMW X3 with 198,000 miles that I use for hauling water heaters and small construction materials for our rental properties. Then we have a 2018 BMW 1 and a 2016 Jeep Patriot. We live in Bucks County PA and in Punta Gorda, FL. The BMWs stay north and the keep stays south. Trying to decide what vehicle to but to flat tow behind our 26’ B+. Also selling the X3. But the best SUV I had was a 2000 Honda CRV. Sold it when it had 246000 miles on it. Great body and interior, just a lot of miles. Sold it for $1,500.

I presently own a 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro4X. Like one guy said, you need a stool to get into it. It also takes up 2 parking spots. I sold the truck camper and we went with an new 18 foot travel trailer. I really miss my Isuzu Trooper SUV. I have been looking for a 4wd SUV that will pull the travel trailer, yet can be used for everyday driving and off road travel. So far I have not found anything that fits exactly what I am looking for. As soon as somebody makes it, I will buy it. Of coarse it has to cost less than my house.

We are on our second Jeep Grand Cherokee, the first was a 2014 which got hit broadside with just 41,000 miles in 2019, now we have a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland that we also tow behind the motor home. Plus we also have a 2014 Honda CRV which is also set up for flat towing. The Honda CRV may turn into a Pick-up if I find the right deal.
