Thanks.

I think I read that Chevy had changed their manual and that the Cruze was not towable. Check this site to see if they have any info:

If you cannot flat tow you will need a trailer or tow dolly if your going tow the Chev Cruzer,

If your Cruze Can be Flat Towed...

You will need the following stuff (in the least):

1. A baseplate
2. A tow bar
3. A wiring harness/adapter and power umbilical
4. An auxiliary braking system
5. Installation of all the above (a definite DIY project)

Ballpark expense on the hardware alone is $2000. I use Blue Ox components and a Brake Buddy Classic towing a Honda CR-V, but everyone has their own preferences when it comes to toads and towing gear.

Well, cycling is way cheaper if it meets your needs while camping. Healthy and ecofriendly, too.

We went without a Toad for 10 years before we broke down and bought a Chevy Spark with a 5 spd manual transmission.

When we were out and needed a vehicle we rented from Enterprise since they would deliver the car to the campsite. There were a few times we had to pick the car up and return it due to the distance from the rental agency but with a little planning that wasn't a problem.
