Hey TampaDave & Kickstand, thanks for writing.
Arrgh, I'm still a newbie even with the RV jargon.
In my mind I was thinking a scooter carrier
(with a ramp) when I said toad. Other rigs I've been looking at are the Newmar Bay Star Sport & the Winnebego Vista 27N. I know the Newmar is supposed to be able to carry close to 5K pounds so for a rig that size, a carrier/rack with a vehicle under 600pds or less shouldn't be a problem, right? Heck, the Newmar or Winnebego had such large passthru storage in back I might even be able to store it in there...as long as I can get it out again.
If I'm actually able to carry it instead of dragging it I'd feel so much better. The Thor Outlaw is impressive, but for a starter rig it may be a bit much.
