I will try to answer your question!
Everyone's needs and must haves are different when it comes to a toad!
Mine were, cheap, no hassle, lots of room for laundry and groceries, fold down seats for even more room, easy access in and out for 4 adults!
We only use a toad for 2 months a year, when we visit the states, the rest of the year we live in Thailand! I keep the MH and toad at my son's house!
So for us a slightly used, 2 owner, 2001 PT Cruiser, 5 speed manual, was perfect!
It weigh's under 3000 lbs, pulls great, don't even know its back there!
It is the perfect toad for us! I bought a Demco base plate and tow bar from PPL., and had a buddy install the base plate with my help! Took us a couple hours!
For you, finding one already set up as a toad, would be great, and save you the cost and setting it up yourself!
Keep a eye on the classifieds here, as some good deals pop up from time to time! Hope this helps! Rail!
