"TOAD" Recommendations

Wanted to ask folks what they thought the top 3 TOAD vehicles would be. I know there are many factors that go into such a decision. However, I am looking for a dependable, easy to move, new or gently used vehicle that can be towed behind a 36' Super C (10,000 tow hitch).

Thank you!

I have a 09 traverse that I plan on towing. Front wheel drive so it can be towed on all 4. I got it because I needed a small suv for my family and the dealer had a hail sale after a big storm. The hood is already dented up so I don't have to worry so much about road debris hitting it.

Funny, I was just about to post the same thing looking for advice about towing a pickup. We're looking to get a small pickup to tow so we can set our two Vespa scooters in the bed. I'm using a 36' Class C diesel as well with a 10k hitch.

Most GM cars and trucks are Flat Towable(check the Owners Manual for verification); A good bit of the FORD stuff is Flat Towable(check the Owners Manual for verification); Most of the Jeeps and Rams are also Flat Towable(check the Owners Manual for verification).
As you can see, the theme is Flat Towable, No Dolly to put away, no trailer to put away.
The key is what the may tow weight your MH can tow and is the car or truck Flat Towable as is. KISS (Keep is Simple Stupid) The only things you should be adding is Base Plate, Tow Bars and Auxiliary Braking System.
That's just my .01 worth

Hard to answer your question without knowing what you want the toad to be able to do. Do you want a truck so you can also tow bicycles, mopeds, golf cart, other toys? Do you need a toad that can carry more than two people, 4, more? Have an urge to cross streams, mountainous roads? Manual shift or automatic? Or like us just a nice little car, Chevy Sonic, that's easy to tow, easy on gas, and is also a daily driver?

The FMCA, if your a member, has towing guides back over 10 years so I would use these when selecting your vehicle if you want to tow 4 down. I have copies of most of them.
