Okay, I will let you alone now, as this thread topic has been very well flagellated over time.

Happy trails!
I'm 66 feet long towing the TOAD. The length is an issue, but tbe show stopper is towing a car with all wheels down. This configuration doesn't support backing up. For the right price, like a Sams in SC that's nearly 20cents cheaper than nearby stations, I'll disconnect the car. It's easy, but I'd prefer not having to do so.

I toad also. Plan entry and exit the same as folks with 40-45 foot MHs, Beaver, Prevost, whatever, or big 5-ers. I would guess you can take on 200 gallons. Your minimum savings would be $22. Some may say it is "chump change" in trade for the "convenience", which may be only percieved.

Everyone makes a choice. I chose to buy new tires in 6 more years by putting away the money I do not spend.

I'm with you. My savings at that Sams was over $50. 20 cents cheaper and I get 5% off when I pay at the pump. And yes my coach is an older Prevost. Although only 3 feet longer than my last coach, a 42-foot Beaver, the wheelbase is 5 feet longer.

Yeah! Aint it grand?

Today, here in Yuma, the FJ is $3.99 cash price, while the 76 station is $3.73, cash or credit. They are on the same corner lot. No wonder the FJ RV lane was empty! They were all at the 76. So, $26 per 100 gal cheaper. Plus cash back on my CC. Another double win for me.
