We were looking for something larger for our growing family. We also camp and wanted to be able to take the dog along. We have been very happy with the CRV. It rides great, has plenty of zip, and gets good gas mileage for a vehicle this size (it was one of my top priorities when shopping for a new car). I'm also 6'3" tall, and the car is comfortable on extended trips (we do not have the sun roof, so that may make a difference). I highly recommend the CRV to anyone interested in this type of vehicle.
Roomy interior for a vehicle this size. Rides very well.
