What does your TOAD Weigh....and

What do you tow it with.

I have a 2007 Saturn Vue and I believe it is about 3600 pounds, pulling it with a 40' DP, 340 Cummins. Tows well in all terrain.

Was looking at some SUV at around 4200 pounds.

Happy trails.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We just ordered a 2014 Chevy Spark to tow behind our 2013 Leisure Travel Vans Unity U24MB w/theater seating. The Spark is listed by the manufacturer to weigh 2269 lbs. We will likely be hauling 42 gallons of water in the Spark along with a Yakima RocketBox on top and up to three bikes on the back for no more than an additional 730 lbs.

The 2013 Subaru VX Crosstrek at 3087 lbs. is an interesting SUV for dinghy duty. Check out the dinghy towing guides for an SUV around 4200 lbs.

2012 Honda Fit. 2500 lbs. Towed with 2001 34 ft. Workhorse with the 8.1 and the GM transmission. I had to fix the backup camera so I could use it when not in reverse to make sure it was back there. Can't feel it.

When not trailering the TJ I mostly tow a '98 Cherokee and just drug it across a scale last Sunday. 4160 lbs. I'll bet some folks would be shocked at what their toad weighs, unless it's been on a scale most folks guess way low.

I tow it with both the truck camper and 37' Alpine, tows very well with either. Roadmaster Even Brake for stopping, would rather have a Ready Brake.
The above post is just my experience/opinion which is worth exactly what you paid for it.

'05 Lance 845/'06 F-250 or '99 Alpine 36SDS Usually towing an '01 Wrangler locked on 35"s or moderate '98 Cherokee on 33"s (rear locker only)

I just purchased a stehl tow dolly to tow either my 2012 Ford Fiesta or 2009 Ford Edge. I really did not want to cut any holes in my bumpers to 4 down. Towing with a 2000 Fleetwood Pace Arrow 35n with a Ford chassis. Will find out this weekend how it goes.
