I can unhitch the tow in under two minutes so I don't bother backing up with it on. I did back it up a foot once, but then ended up unhitching anyway. It takes me more time to try backing it than unhitching and rehitching

Even if you are backing up PERFECTLY straight, it don't work. I've tried using a 2 way radio with my wife stearing the TOAD, and it still don't work. I did it once in an "emergency" - as was on a hill and un-hook would have been very hard. Now, I have to replace one leg of my tow bar.

On a slightly different topic, I HIGHLY recommend that you pay a couple dollars more, and buy a tow bar that can be released under pressure. If you are in the process of turning on a slight hill, tow bars are extreemly hard to un-hook. I have a hammer and a 8" long 5/8" bolt I use to "assist" removing the pin on either side of the bar, but in certain circumstances, it can be a bear!!! Go the extra couple bucks.
