With similar requirements plus being able to add a trailer hitch.
I'm leaning towards the 2013 Ford Escape, it's smaller/ lower than previous years. Mileage is 20's city and 30's hwy. The stripped down model starts at $19000.
Mazda CX-5 and Nissan Juke are similar but I don't think the back seat folds flat for hauling or sleeping. CX 5 price is a little higher.
