If you X is 4 wheel dr it should be towable. The owners manual should have a section detailing any necessary towing procedure.

Can you put the transfer case in neutral? If not it probably can not be towed 4 down. I'm not familiar with your Ford but my Escalade has no transfer case shifter and it can not be towed 4 down. We bought the little Geo Tracker just for a toad and our ISC 350 Cummins doesn't seem to notice it.

Toads are also a great place to store more stuff to bring along. We put in lawn chairs and things that go outside and empty it when first getting to a CG.

Unfortunately I found out that there is no way to put the transfer case in neutral. Some folks have just disconnected the drive shaft but I am not sure i would go that route.

I have a small 2001 corolla so I will probably just make that my toad and just squeeze us all in, if we ever all had to be out together.

We started towing a 2012 Ford Fiesta behind our 31' gasser. It was hardly noticeable back there. Moved up to a 41' DP - if I did not have a rear view camera, I would not even know I was towing! It is one of the few "automatic transmissions" that can be towed 4 down (in reality, it is a manual trans with electric controls). DW will only drive an auto, but you can't haul an auto easily, so the Ford Fiesta fit the bill.

I found the toad particularly helpful on our last trip, when our 2011 DP had to be towed. Can't imagine going without a toad or a companion vehicle. Agree that four down is the way to go and toad brakes are a safety requirement, not an option.
