My wife and I love visiting National Parks and going hiking in obscure areas when we tour. We also love to go somewhere that has fun and tough Jeep trails, like Moab in Utah or Death Valley, CA, so we always tow our Jeep Wrangler. So far we've been over 20K miles and never had a towing problem. Setup originally cost about $2K for towbar, braking system etc. but once done has been very easy to use.

I've been full time for just over 8 years and don't have a 4-wheel toad. I do have a large scooter I carry on a crank down rack but I have gone months at times without unloading it. I've met a few other couples along the way who have only a scooter or motorcycle instead of a 4-wheeler.

I am a solo traveler and enjoy the more rustic areas and also do volunteer work. I've also found our wonderful RV family is usually overflowing with offers to take me places.

My travel without a toad is somwhat different then others I know with a toad. I move more often while friends with a toad will set up camp for a month then travel 100-150 mi from there touring that area. I also enjoy boondocking.

My plan when I started full time was to rent a car when needed which I have done a few times when volunteering with a ministry in FL and wanted to take a trip. I was able to rent from the ministry so the cost was minimal.

I do enjoy the "freedom" of not having a toad. By freedom I mean I can back up anywhere, etc. If though, I was not solo I would probably have a toad.

We have a different approach, although I've also seen a couple of people who tow cycles. We have a small trailer equipped with two Buddy 125 scooters and two kayaks. This whole setup weighs less than 1,400 lb and we hardly know its there.
