You cant do much without a toad and also add the cost of maintenance of 2 drive trains. With the fifth wheel you only have 1
The $$$ difference between the mileage of a TV and a fuel efficient toad.
Takes care of the cost of having the extra drive train maintenance.
Well if the Mh broke down and there wasn't a dealer close (providing they would work on it) there would be a tow involved, I would have to stay in a motel
with a 5er I could leave the vehicle and the mechanic could at least drive me back 'home' also my truck could pretty much go to any mechanic and they could fix it, (no waiting for parts)
When a TV & 5er breaks down on the road. You can have the cost of 2 tow charges.
You can't leave the 5er along side of the road and stay in it.
With a MH & toad. You don't need the mechanic to drive you anyplace.
Most MH repair places have free hook ups to use after shop hours. And no need for a motel stay.
In 15 years of full time. I have only needed to use a motel for 10 days. And the other drivers Insurance company paid 100% of that stay.
