What is best way to sell tow?

My last tow has a yr left on factory warranty so I figure it should be fairly easy to sell. Havn't figured out a price yet.
I am trying to determine if I should remove the baseplate and try to sell that way or just leave the baseplate on and hope for the best?. If I do remove the base plate the two cutouts might be hard to explain.
How do you normally go about this? and are there any good places to list it for sale as a tow car set up?

Before our toad purchase we shopped for various vehicles easy to tow with the least modifications and would suit our needs.
We found one that was not advertised as tow ready but what we wanted.
The owner disclosed it had been used as toad and asked did we want the base plate or he would remove it.
In the end he included the towbar and all accessories........that was the dealmaker.
IMO someone not interested in a toad might think a lot of extra miles towing/wear&tear to driveline not showing on the odometer.
OTOH a $1500 baseplate&towbar included in the sale would seem invaluable to someone needing a toad.
I'd advertise on one of these forums and craigslist in the M/H section.
Good Luck

Why not list it as a ready-to-go toad right here, in the Classified Ads section? RVers are your best audience for a tow-equipped car and it's free.

You can also put a free ad in the FMCA magazine (if you are a member).

The RV classified ad sites often list toads as well. Here is one:
