Considering a TOAD - What is your best Vehicle experience.

A new kid on the block here, We are considering a towed vehicle to be towed by our Jayco '16 29MV Coach.

Having never experienced towing, we are at a loss as to which way to turn. I'm thinking... "try and buy right the first time"...

For those here that tow, what is been your best towed vehicle...???

It all depends on what vehicle type you prefer and the MH tow rating. I had a great experience with a GMC Canyon PU when we had the 2001 DESIGNER MH and also with a 1500 Silverado and a CHEV Sonic when we had the SENECA. Both trucks were 4WD. Just remember some vehicles are speed and distance (you need to stop and run the engine) restricted.

Small cars with manual transmissions are a little easier to tow. Need to make sure that a base plate is available for whatever you select (if you decide to tow 4 down). Dollying, trailering or flat towing is another big decision you will need to research. We flat tow a Ford Fiesta hatchback with a manual trans. with our 30' Ford V10. The car weighs under 2500 lbs and I only feel that the car is there if I have to climb a long and/or steep grade. The Fiestas are roomy inside and good on gas.
