To give you some background on what I'll be doing...I don't take the trailer anywhere in the snow, so that's not an issue. However, I will be trailering up to 3x per month going to shows where they almost ALWAYS park us in a field. If it rains, it will get muddy. That's why I'm even considering 4WD.
The thing is, last year I towed with our GMC Savanna which is 2WD and never got stuck...but I'm starting to think that was luck now. Because then I went to a Triathlon race out of town with the hubby and that big van got so stuck in a muddy lot that we had to go find someone with a 4WD SUV to pull us out!
My husband is worried about spending the $2-3k more for the 4WD and getting a vehicle that has worse gas mileage and just another component to break, just on the CHANCE that I ever get stuck with it. He says that if I get stuck once or twice, calling a tow truck would be inconvenient but still less $$ than purchasing the 4WD.
Thoughts, esp from those who are in the same boat as me?? 8/
