We've taken to doing this as well. These days, when we arrive at a campground - my DW goes into the office to deal with check-in. While she's inside - I run to the back of the coach and drop the toad. Now that I've got the procedure down - I can have the toad unhooked and the tow bars (and dangling cables) stowed well enough to make the short drive to the campsite in a couple of minutes. It's rare indeed that I'm not finished before she's done getting us checking in with the office.

When she comes out - she gives me the site number, and points me the right direction - and then jumps into the toad to either lead or follow me to our site. Losing that extra 20 feet of rig makes maneuvering the narrow streets inside the campground a little easier - and leaves me free to setup for my backup approach into our site without having to first drop the toad at the campsite itself.
