We lost our toad in Hurricane Michael (and a couple other vehicles), so now I have to find something else to tow. I am having no luck with Craig's list or eBay finding cars already set up to tow. Any suggestions?

Did you look in the for sale section of irv2 .com?

Vendors typically remove towing equipment before selling the vehicle, most buyers won't pay extra for it. You would probably do better buying a suitable toad and having the proper kit installed.

Really look over any used vehicles. From the floods last year many of those vehicles were sent all over the US for resale.

Go to the well respected full timers club Escappes website. Plenty of already set up toads from RV'rs retiring or upgrading their toads.

Toads go fast, so check daily for new ads. I sold my toad in less than an hour on this forum!

You don't have to join their club to access their classified section.
It is the only place I buy or sell RV equipment. It is a pleasant experience to talk to real RV people when buying or selling.

Here is the link:

You do NOT have to join the actual Escapees Club to use their forum classified. Just join the forum for free.


1. Go here:

2. Upper right hand corner click: create an account

3. After you joined go to Forums.

4. Scroll all the way down the page near the bottom to:
RV MARKET PLACE

Good Luck finding just the right new to you toad. [emoticon]

I've had a Honda CRV with tow hitch for sale for a month on CL, and not one call.
