I can back around the block if need be. And tow any toad I choose. Never had to unhook the trailer yet. And am not wearing out the tires and toad drivetrain. It is a very hostile environment behind a motorhome when being dragged around four down. Different strokes for all of us.

Off road toad, and the one I would like to pull four down someday. Rides on the trailer when we take it now. Sometimes we go toadless. But not often. Handy to have a second vehicle along.

Have been renting for the last couple of years, we are just occasional travelers. When we are going for a week or longer it was always pretty easy to rent a car from enterprise as they will usually come and pick you up wherever you are staying. But not so convenient when you want to just go out for a short weekend trip, so I was ready for a new car so went with a Wrangler Unlimited and have set it up for 4 down towing. Went with the Wrangler because of the ease of towing and I have just always wanted one, love it so far. So for us I guess it just boiled down to convenience.

I will transition to full time summer 2014 and we have run the full spectrum discussing bikes to scooters to golf carts to a small car. And when we are out and about we see about as many MH's towing as not.
As you can see I have camped in alot of campgrounds over the last 4 years and I absoutly disagree at least 75-90 % have a toad, generally the ones who do not have smaller motor homes and do not full time.

We've done both and since it doesn't make much of a difference if it's back there or not, we like having the toad along. It should be your daily driver anyway, so no extra expense for purchasing it. For a full timer, it's a no brainer, as most will sit for longer periods and will have a greater need for the toad.
