We are very new to the RV world, just since this past spring. We have been enjoying our trips so far but have felt confined by not having easy, convenient transport once we were parked.
A tow set-up seemed like the right idea but I wanted to get a little experience in handling our 37-footer before it grew even longer with the addition of a tow.
We just returned from our first trip and I have to say that we are happy with the whole experience:
1. towing is easy but you should get some hours behind the wheel of your rig before you go for it.
2. the miles-per-gallon cost is not that bad; I think about .5 less with the toad.
3. the objective was achieved. We could tour around from our campground base in the car without considering if we could fit into a particular parking lot.
1. remember to close the windows and vents when you leave the rig. We beat a thunderstorm to our site by about five minutes on Saturday. It could have gotten very wet inside.
2. remember the status of the parking brake on the toad. It likes to roll down the hill when you don't pay attention.
and one more thing....
Having the freedom (retired) to visit Vermont after Labor Day is wonderful! Fantastic scenery and no crowds.
A banjo will get you through a time of no money much better than money will get you through a time of no banjo.
