Go to www.motorhomemagazine.com (The annual guide to "dinghy" towing) and you can look for hours at the ones that can be towed and by year.

Enjoy.

The FMCA site also has a section on toads with listings by model year.

It would help if you told us what you are towing with. Most gasser class A's can tow up to 5,000#; a DP can tow much more. All of us have our preferences...

And the forum folks would be right. I full time and visit a lot of different kinds of parks. State, National, and private CG's. Tow dollys are an issue in a lot of places. If you can find a toad that suits your needs that can be towed 4 down, it will make life simpler for you (my opinion). Easier to hook and unhook, one less set of tires to maintain, and one less registration to pay for.

It's your choice........

Most of us tow a small or mid-sized 4X4 with a transfer case that will shift to "neutrel" (sp?) to allow towing "four down". Then, you have to get a tow bar at around $1,000 (Roadmaster, Blue Ox, etc. Then there probably should be the auxilliary braking system integrated with the DP's system. Cost ??? Many of us use Brake Buddy type, costly but effective and easy to use.


The vast majority of MH'ers take a toad with them. You will find that most tow four down; some use the dolly; even fewer use the car carrier.

Ask around and observe. You will come up with the best solution for you!
