Lazy way to build a list of possible toads

Since my dear wife passed in November, I'm looking to sell the house and most everything else and buy an RV and wander until whenever. I've kind of narrowed the choices to either a late model Wayfarer or 33AA. Big difference I know. Since I will be going solo I would prefer a toad that I can tow all four down..something smaller and light.
I have an 18 Honda CRV which I will replace with the Toad. I'd appreciate any and all your input and or suggestions.
Thanks and Happy New Year to you all.

I downsized in May to a 2021.5 Class-B Pleasure Way motorhome on the Sprinter chassis. I went from 45 ft, four slides, to 23 feet! Love it! I've had two large class-A's over a 14 yr. period and wanted to try a different way to travel.

I was was pulling a '17 Lincoln MKX (4,200 lbs.) with my previous coach but it's at the max towing allowed on my little coach so I bought a lightly used six speed manual Mini Cooper (2,700 lbs.) that I will set up very soon to pull behind the Pleasure Way.

I've kept the Lincoln as it's a good car and only has 20,000 miles on it (driving) and plus another 20,000 miles towing.

Since I'm a solo traveler now (spouse passed 1.5 yrs. ago), smaller will be better now.

Good luck on your search!

In your situation, I would look at the classifieds here and other places to find a toad already set up.

I would buy one cheap and use it until you have the time/experience to know what really fits your new lifestyle.

We bought a cheap/light TOAD last summer, it is a 2007 Toyota Yaris 3 door hatchback, overall it is a good basic car, does great for small TOAD duty, I am 6'0" and fit in it comfortably, overall I can sum it up as not as bad as I thought it would be, though only the manual transmission version is flat towable. I mention it as there is VERY little information of using a Yaris as a TOAD online
