With that said all the experts will chime in on why I am wrong.
I will. We have a Precept 35s and flat towed our '14 CRV for 4 years. The 35s has a much longer rear overhang than the 31 UL so the chances of debris getting to the toad are considerably less. In summers a lot of road departments are out chip sealing, we encountered this and suffered enough paint chips on the front and hood of the car it diminished the trade in value by $1000.
