THe CRV is a lovely little tow machine.

An absolute swine for chewing through fly wheels and clutches though. Our local paramedics use CRVs as their vehicle of choice, they average 8300 miles between fly wheels.....at least we could eek ours out to 40000, all thanks to the dual mass fly wheel. I wouldn't have another crv as a gift.

My previous 09 cdti did 59,000 trouble free miles of which approx. 46,000 was towing both in the UK and every winter to Portugal and Spain
Absolutely no problems with the clutch at all .
Any emergency services vehicle is more likely to suffer mechanical issue due to the way there driven .

Had a CR-V for 8 years now and towed all over the place not had a problem at all. I had it remapped almost 2 years ago gives it a little more torque and it's a pleasure to tow with.

Should have converted it back to the single system far cheaper and longer lasting

I have the 4th gen CR-V EX 2.2 i-DTEC which I bought new in 2013. Tows like a dream and so far has proved to be utterly reliable. I get about 42 mpg solo on urban roads, and between 28 and 30 mpg towing depending on the sort of roads.

I had an Accord Tourer 2.2 i-CTDi before the CR-V and that was totally reliable, with no problems in nine years. The Accord was not as frugal as the CR-V in fuel consumption on urban roads, but excellent solo on motroways.

We have had three CRVs and an Accord Tourer. Towed Bailey Senator Indiana with first two CRVs and Bailey Unicorn Almeria with the last. Almeria is 1595 KG MTLM, but it's probably loaded more than that. Towed all over Europe, Switzerland, French Alps, Pyrenees, Corsica. Only had one breakdown - car wouldn't start after going through car wash near Nimes. Honda assist were excellent in getting it fixed. (they use AA, who have standard UK yellow vans stationed throughout Europe in summer) No clutch/flywheel problems, though clutch smells a bit when reversing caravan. Economy around 45-47 solo, 23-28 towing depending on wind. Front tyres last about 24000. Never changed rears.

We tow our 1345kg Elddis with our 63plate CRV 2.2D-Tec, it tows very well, and very stable in these high winds at the moment. Good Fuel consumption levels, we have just completed a 420mile combined trip to Snowdonia, of which 260 was towing, the onboard computer gives an average of 37.8mpg, which is better than my old Civic ever managed.
