No issues at all. It worked great as a Toad. We pulled it 8,000 miles behind our 3051S.
Before buying the Forester we pulled a Travel Trailer. I had a brand new 2015 Ford Expedition EL for my Tow Vehicle. We were not thinking Motor Home but fell in love with the layout in the 3051S. So after we sold the Travel Trailer and bought the Forester I was left with no car act as a toad.
We bought a 2013 Fiat Pop and while it worked perfectly the Expedition was too big and unnecessary as a daily driver. And now we had 3 cars to insure, etc just to use as a Toad. The Fiat is fine but not going to be my daily driver.
So, we were looking for a nice flat-towable vehicle to replace both the Expedition and the Fiat - when I saw the Lincoln on the FMCA's new Toad list I bought one.
Tomorrow we have the base plate installed and take it and the RV on our first trip with the bigger car - we're headed out to West Texas for a week before it gets too hot.
Assuming that the Lincoln is easy enough to tow and works good as a toad we'll be selling the Fiat when we return from our trip. We bought it cheap so it should be super easy to sell.
