Checking the toad periodically is not a bad idea. We had pins with slide on locks securing our towbar to the toad. I checked them throughout a 400 mile trip with no problems. We went over a nasty rut on our final leg. When we went to disconnect the lock had popped off. I will change the pins over to a padlock compatible pin. I am thankful the pin remained in place.

Hi Audrey & John,
The only difference I noticed between towing and not towing is slower acceleration and hill climbing. Nothing drastic, just noticeable. Other than that, I don't know the toad is back there.
