Toad

Hi everyone, The wife and I are looking at Class "A" RV and are wondering what would be the best TOAD to use. Any help would be great. FYI we would be planning on being on the road 25 to 50% of the time. Thanks

Depending on what size you are looking for we are very happy with our 2018 Hyundai Elantra sport.

Tows great and fun to drive with the six speed as well.

Back seats fold down for more storage etc.

Welcome!!!! We tow a 98 Chevy Tracker 2-door ragtop, 5spd manual. Light, fun to drive, goes most everywhere, reliable, easy to hookup, tows straight and true. Tough to find a rust unit in the Midwest tho.

Store : Remco

You can determine what cars are able to be towed 4 down with the Remco site.

I recommend towing 4 down.

This is a rather open ended question, like asking what is the best car to buy, it all depends on your needs, and your budget. A Mazda Miata convertible may make a great TOAD for some people, but is probably not the best option for those that like taking back country trails, in which case a Jeep is probably a much better option.

I'd review this list:

Select something that you think you would enjoy, that has no towing restrictions, and that your MH can easily tow.

Jeep Wrangler of course..........

The correct Toad is a personal choice. It would be impossible to give you accurate advice without knowing a whole bunch more about how you plan to use your toad.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

We like our Honda CRV! Those are flat towable through 2014! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
