DW and I are just about finished with a three week / 3k mile trip. I have unhooked the 4 down toad nearly every day. . .and I cannot imagine having to strap down wheels on a dolly that many times. If you only use the toad once or twice a week, ok, but the extra $ have been very well spent for us.

What extra work? The 5 minutes that it takes to hook up and check the lights, that is what is too much work? The 5 minutes to unhook - Dave does that while I'm registering at the next place.

I sure don't want to drive all by myself for 100+ miles if I don't have to - - of course I love my DH and enjoy talking to him as we drive. Plus I love the view out the big windows, that I certainly wouldn't get from the car. And it is nice for him not to have to drive all of the time.

But again. what big effort?

Where do you put the trailer when you arrive at the campground?

I never invested 3K for towing. Bought the base plates for each of the vehicles I have towed and put them on myself. Made the purchases from etrailer.com. Bought the Tow bar from them also. Have had several RV's, Pace Arrow, Tioga, Dodge 3500 and King of the Road fivers (2) a Coachmen Mirada, and our current Fleetwood 36T Expedition.

My cost was only about 1500, max. I did all the wiring of the Toads, Jeep Liberty, and our current Dodge 1500 4X4, and picked up a Blue Ox Brake in the box from E-bay for 350.00 have used it in both toads. Just saying, it can be done cheaper if you do some wrenching yourself.

Can't imagine driving without the wife with me, and there is no way she would want to driving by herself. Nope wouldn't work.

Happy Trails
