You could check Rockler Wood Working. They carry a lot of hardware.

Many here will disagree with me but we have seen so many Jeeps on fire behind a motorhome.  Ford for me!  Explorer, Edge, newer Expedition and Escape are all towable or last I heard. 
You can get a tow kit installed for the brackets and match it to your tow bar.  Roadmaster towing in Vancouver Wa will do that or buy your tow bar and make yours all new.

You expressed pretty much my sentiments too, Keith.  And though the off-road capability is attractive, the Jeep ride at our age and with our spine issues is not.

The Buick Envision is an idea also.

We have the 06 Explorer Ltd. And it seats six pretty well.
Another good option is the Cadilac.

Cathileen,
That's a  tough one. Consider you would need to find a vehicle with a base plate that matches your current tow bar and a compatible braking system. IMHO, (unless you get lucky) plan on pulling the braking system from the CRV. Since I doubt the baseplate is transferable, plan on installing a new baseplate made for the Jeep you purchase that matches your current tow bar. BTW, the Jeep (assuming it's a Wrangler) will give you a rougher ride and be tougher (higher) to get into. We towed my Wrangler for a few years but got tired of the ride, etc, and now tow a Liberty and DW loves it.

Finding a vehicle already set up to tow is a daunting task.  I looked, but finally gave up and bought a 2014 CRV and put a baseplate on it.  In your case, looking for the four door Jeep, it is about the easiest to set up for towing.  You can just replace the front bumper with an aftermarket unit with the tow brackets built in.  When my CRV has to be replaced, that is what I will be looking for.

We will need to replace our 2007 Honda CRV eventually and have been looking at 4 door Jeeps (have to have room for grandkids and booster seats).  Does anyone have any suggestions on the best places to look for a vehicle that is already set-up to tow?

Dale,
The dimmer switch is part of the turn signal switch in the steering column. As a reminder, the headlights will not work unless the ignition is on.

It's probably your turn signal arm.  Push it forward or pull it back to go from dim to bright, and vice versa.

Steve:
Looking through the forum I see you have addressed dimmer switch problems before. Where is the dimmer switch on my Contessa?
