Howdy to Everyone!!!

Just wanted to update the travel page with our latest edition to our camping and road equipment. This update is purely for the camping enthusiast and for the folks that are contemplating towing a car behind their RV.

Just recently we purchased a "TOAD" to pull behind our CONCORD. We selected a used 2003 Saturn ION-3 for our TOAD. This vehicle has a 5 speed manual transmission with a 4 cyl engine. Runs good and has great MPG figures (~35 MPG).

The tow package has just been installed, and today, we took the CONCORD and TOAD out for a road test. The road test went just fine and I really like the way the TOAD tracks behind the motor home.

The tow package is a BLUE OX brand. Package includes Tow bar, Tow base plate, brake light system wired. See the photos attached. Chillhowee RV installed the package. The entire package cost around $2K. I thought the cost was very competitive and reasonable.

Let me know if you have any questions concerning towing a vehicle behind your RV.

This is a short update and hope everyone is having a great summer and staying cool. We will be pulling out here soon for a road trip. I will update the page when we pull out.

In Dad and Mom's memory.....the ADVENTURE continues..........

Later Alligators,

Archie, Chris (and TOBY the traveling pup)
