Navigator you have not allowed us enough options. I use my car for all those cetegories, except that I do not generally tow when going on holiday, and my daily commute is fairly short. I also don't use it every day, but probabbly on average twice a week. It is also the only car I have with a tow hitch, so it takes the trailer to the dump, tows other cars around etc. as well.

I'd add a voice to the "all of the above - its my only vehicle" chorus, except I've never used my Patrol to tow anything.

Before I got it, it was used as a back-country work truck and did all kinds of towing.
