Is there a website where people list their toads for sale? We are looking for a toad and prefer finding one that's already setup for towing.

Be aware that there are multiple different ways to connect lights, battery charging, auxiliary brake and tow bars. Toad weight may be a factor. Some may not be adaptable to your MH.

Thanks for the tips. The Escapees' website has nothing current and FMCA only has one high-mileage listing with no date.

you might try craigslist, FB marketplace, auto trader if you know a make and model, IRV2 forum/market place, etc. A careful detailed Google and Bing search may yield results. Escapees forum is limited compared to this forum and IRV2. Good luck

What are you looking for in a towed? Is there a web site telling us what rv you have and what you want a towed to do.

Thats enought of the snarky answers, there isn't a specific site that lists towables for sale. If you can do the work to convert a vehicle to a towed, there is a yearly listing of vehicles that can be towed four down. I believe it is by MoHo magazine, it is part of Affinity.

If you can't do the converrsion, there are folks that can. Most mobile rv techs for instance.

One thing about milage is that most new towables have electronic speedos. They do not show the miles towed. What a used towed's speedo shows may be much less than the total miles the vehicle may have endured.

New vehicles that I would use are way over the weight I would like to tow. My current towed is a 2009 GMC Canyon and is over 4000 lbs. The only good thing about it is that it is towable four down without any mods to the vehicle. I gave my Daughter my 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara because I wanted a 4x4 truck that was towable. I am going to buy it back and give her the Canyon for a down payment on a new car. I'll buy a 2wd F150 beater truck DD and keep the Suzi for towing. Oh, by the way, it is my wife who wants the towed to be a 4x4 and I want a truck for z DD.

I towed for several years in the past. I'm open to different vehicles, provided they're newer and small to medium size, and within reasonable distance from where I live.
