We are looking for a toad. Because of our wants, not needs, there are only a few vehicles we are considering. Anyone towing a '03 or '04 Discovery? Pros and Cons? Feel free to private message or e-mail me.

Thank you

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

It appears that nobody here is towing a Discovery. I new a fellow who towed one for awhile, but he had a lot of problems with the vehicle (not just towing) and eventually traded it for a Subaru.

Why this particular vehicle?

It was to be a compromise in vehicles with Patty and I. I wanted someting to take of in the desert rock hounding, and she wanted a comfortable back seat. Liberty and Cherokee rear seats offer no support. We also like something different. I believe it would be a very crash worthy vehicle. I know they are not the most reliable.

I think we are now headed for a light weight..Scion Xb. Has lots of room, but no automatic. We bought our MH a year ago and still haven't decided on a toad.

Maybe an MDX.

Thanks for your reply.

Maybe Remco has a conversion kit under development for the Scion automatic. And maybe they would be interested in using your new one as a guinea pig. They used to do that sometimes and you got a free conversion.

An MDX would be my choice, though. Nice vehicle, Hoonda quality, and you don't see many on the RV circuit.
