I rather enjoy our little Suzuki XL7 4wd as we sometimes go places where we can go off road and do a bit of exploring. However, DW liked our first toad better, a 90 Aerostar XLT van as there was more room to store stuff she bought during our travels--LOL

We have a 06 JEEP liberty 6-speed stick, fairly decent road car, trail rated so you can do some fairly serious off roading [ I installed all the skid plates] just put the transfer case in neutral, trans in gear, unlock the steering wheel and tow away.
The Road Runner looks like fun (as is my Camaro SS convertible), but I would not want to have to deal with the trailer. We really like our Jeep Wrangler. We can easily fold back the front half of the top, or remove the entire top with a lot more effort. I've recently thought that if we were ever willing to give up the ability to explore those truely off the beaten path back roads, a Smart cabriolet might be the ticket. About 2k lbs, convertible, towable 4 down and 40+ mpg. Of course it's only a two place, (great excuse to use someone elses car for those evenings out with friends) but looks like a lot of fun!

I want the most comfortable toad I can find and currently thats a 2007 Toyota Avalon and yes its on the recall list but it is big enough for me to stuff my 6'-3" body in too. I would prefer a Suburban just because of the size...it can't be too big.

So I retire in 73 days but whose counting? I've always lusted after a convertible but the day to day necessities of life interfered with having a "fun" car. Now that there will be time to spread out vacation a little, I'm also looking for that fun car that can also be towed. I've run the numbers and scoured the towing guides, however now I'd like to hear from you what your FAVORITE Toad is or has been and why. I'm looking for ideas!
2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. When you get to your destination park the MH and go anywhere you want. If you like to adventure you can't beat it and it is the best in my opinion to tow. Oh, and it can be a convertable or hard top.
Congrats you are almost there, today marks my third month of retirement and it is worth the wait.

I haven't used it as a toad yet but my wife drives a Cooper S convertable and it is almost as much fun as my motorcycles. If you are looking for a fun to drive convertable this is it. They are supper-charged or turbo-charged depending on the year. Six speed trany and the handling of a roller skate.
