Find a Honda CRV automatic. There are almost the only small foreign made quality vehicle that you can pull 4 wheels down with an automatic. And Honda's are very reliable and should last "forever".
We started towing our 2000 Mazda Protege with a tow dolly. I found the dolly to be a PIA and crawling around under a car to adjust straps and chains not something I wanted to do regularly. Found a 2003 Mazda pickup with manual transmission, but after a trip to Alaska decided needed bigger passenger capacity and I was tired of a manual transmission. Got a 2005 Honda CRV last year and it has been great - I even prefer it to my wife's 2012 Subaru Forester.
Towing 4 down is the way to go, found my towing set up on Craigslist for $250 and added $90 for local mechanic to install and good to go for a lot less than the $1550 Camping World wants for the same setup.
