Default Question about a new tow rig

Without getting into political theories on the who, why, and how... the economy is screwed up right now.
I have cut back and made choices that seemed like a smart idea at the time one of which was to sell my 07 Chevrolet crew cab and buy a 99 Durango for lower payments. The repair costs ate me alive... now its the fuel prices again. I do way too much driving to have a gas hog. The Durango is a 5.9L 4x4 so 13-14mpg is avg.

To my question... I am now looking for something a bit more economical. Looking at the 6 cylinder equinox and small vehicle like that, and some of the Envoys and Trailblazers.. something that gets 20+ MPG.

Can you even tow a decent size cooker or 5x10 trailer with wood behind one of the little SUV's? I have to have room, dependability, and decent fuel mileage. I take long trips so a compact truck might not fit the bill (although I did seee a 2wd Toyota crew cab PreRunner for a decent price...not sure about the mileage 4.0 would get me?)

Didn't know where to put this, but since it does involve pulling my cooker I felt like it was Que related.
