Gmc acadia and chevy equinox are just under 5k have the seating you need. They can also be flat towed with the automatic transmission. You just need to stop every couple hundred miles and run the engine to circulate the transmission fluid for a few minutes

We have a 2006 7-passenger Saturn Relay 3. Has everything! Two sets of bucket seats (air bags in 2nd row) and a comfortable bench seat behind that with storage behind that. Has OnStar, DVD system with TV on track that goes to the back of the van; power slide doors on both sides, roof luggage rack, leather seats, back-up alert, climate control for front and back. Newly charged a/c, new shocks, new brakes and newly serviced. We need a smaller vehicle to tow behind our newly purchased Class A. My husband is looking up the blue book now. If interested, please respond. Need to sell ASAP.

Thank you to all that have replied. I think we are going to go with a used (2012-2013) GMC Arcadia or Chevy Traverse. Had seriously considered a dolly but with the added 450 lbs or so-thought it would be better to flat tow. If we purchase a FWD we will still have several hundred pounds of "extra space" for bikes etc.......
Thank you all for your suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a list that should help you out. We are new RV owners too and I have been doing some research on this very subject. Found this through an Edmunds site, it was a free down load so I have in in my IBooks on my IPad for safe keeping. This link should give you in correct info. I happen to drive 2014 Dodge Durango, great vehicle and I'm getting an average of 21/22 mpg' just around town. It seats 7 and when you don't need the back seating they fold flat so you can carry whatever. Mid seats also fold flat. I love mine! Here is the link to the info your looking for: The link to my down load did not work, but it is free so let me go back to where I found it and get that link for you. Ok here it is. Click under the 2014 tow list. Click Add To Cart right under Free just below the picture. Put in your info just like your buying, you will not be asked for any card numbers or anything. When you click submit another page will pop up. Don't leave that page, go to the bottom of you receipt and click onto Download. Don't forget to save it.
