Smile street legal scooter rather than a toad ?

I'm new to motorhomes, so I have questions as you might guess.
Don't really want to pull a a "toad", but I would appreciate anyones experiences using a street legal scooter as a "get around town" vehicle.
Thanks in advance for your help!

We have two scooters, had a friend weld up a rack that slides into the hitch receiver then load and go. Only issue is weather. If it's raining it can be very dangerous( been riding m/c for 35 yrs ) & the fact most people don't look out for you! We just bought a 2011 Honda CRV so we are setting it up to tow on long trips otherwise the scooters are great locally.

When we switched from a toy hauler to a motorhome, we had the choice of towing the Jeep or motorcycle on a trailer. Taking the motorcycle instead of a car on our first long trip seemed like a good thing to do. Unfortunately, it rained the entire first week at our destination. When you ride a motorcycle, you get cought in the rain occassionally, just part of the adventure, however, having to start every day in the rain on the bike just sucks. If you get a light enough scooter, take both, the scooter on a motorhome mounted rack and tow the car. You won't be disappointed.

We switched to a Dakota 4x4 truck as the toad and take the Harley in the bed. Best of both worlds. Enjoy.

We take a Honda Reflex 250 with us when we're going to Lake Cumberland
Jet Sking for the week. Great to get around locally and the bike rack we have allows us to connect the Jet Ski trailer. The Reflex will haul 2 and very easily keep up with traffic. We only do secondary roads, 55 mph at most, although it will do 65 with no problem.

Our first toad was a Honda Trail 90. Problem number one was weather, problem number two was that my wife would go into an alligator death roll every time I went to help her put her helmet on.
We sure love our 2003 Honda CR-V !!!
