New to us Toad

Well since our oldest got his license he inherited our saturn to drive so inturn we needed a new toad. This is what i found on craigslist its a 2000 chevy metro that came with a roadmaster falcon 2 towbar and roadmaster brake system all for the whopping price of 900 dollars, It didnt look like this when we got it but all i did was clean the interior and paint it white to match the motorhome. Its no luxury car but more like a gokart LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! but will do the job its intended to do get us around when camping... One other thing is it only weighs 1800 pounds so you dont even notice it behind the coach

Wow, how lucky to find one that has all the tow gear to go with it!
Looks great and looks like you have already gone through any reconditioning that was needed.
I am just finishing up installing a Blue Ox base plate and a Ready Brute elite tow bar set up on my Honda. The base plate was pretty easy, but the surge brake system took a little extra time to fabricate a bracket to insure it will operate properly.
