Depends on your camping style. How long are your trips? Do you go to urban areas or very rural?

If your trips are longer than a week, I would say you should definitely consider towing a car with you.

If you camp in urban areas where you can bike ride to get groceries or “see the sights”, then you might get by without one.

How many pounds can your rig tow?

Tow dolly or four down are other questions you would need to investigate if deciding to take a car with you.

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good info to share. Towing a vehicle certainly is a bonus but really depends on how much camping you are planning, where are you going, and how long are your trips.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! As others have said, if you plan to do much traveling I would certainly get a toad! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I'll pray for you. LOL Get your feet wet first if you can. Then think about a toad. Had a friend that used a rental car if needed.
