New RV owners ISO toad!

Recommended Posts

We purchased our first small (24 ft) Class C motorhome, and are very excited about planning our first 4 week RV trip through the Pacific Northwest. While we love the comfort in traveling in a motor home as opposed to a travel trailer or 5th wheel, we have already come to see the need to have some other mode of transportation once we get settled in to the campsite.

 

So, now we begin our search for a toad! We are looking for a vehicle which is already set up to tow four wheels down. Requirement is automatic transmission. Preference is 4WD. Our research/search thus far has led us to focus on Jeep Wrangler, Honda CRV, and HHR. We live in Springfield, IL, and would prefer to find this vehicle somewhere that would not involve overnight travel or one way flights/train.

 

Please email information, along with pictures to me at

Phone calls to Dan at 217 753 0518.

 

Thank you very much!

Saturn Vue SUV-4 or 6 cyl-FWD or AWD We had one for several years- Easy to setup and tow- Good choice

HHR- Not a real fan- Several folks we knew had some problems.

Jeep- Not real comfortable with these any more. Some of the past models have had software issues making it difficult to get the transfer case to shift properly when getting read to tow. Don't need that aggravation on the road or when home.

Chev Equinox- 4 or 6 cyl- FWD or AWD- Our current toad- 6 cyl AWD

24ft Class C? You need to first look at weights. I doubt you can tow more than 3500 lbs. That rules out a lot of make/models immediately. Newer automatics have CVT which rules out 4 down tow for the most part. Sorry about being so negative but as a former owner of a 24ft class C, we found there just isn't a heck of a lot out there that will comply with the limited GCVW.
