Maybe we should consider the same for our BMW Z4. We love cruising through the mountains with the top down. I never thought about the other wear and tear on the other components besides tires. We've been thinking of getting a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, soft soft because it would be fun.

At this point in life, it should be a lot about the fun. There is always "UBER" for a breakdown or another wonderful RVr willing to help out. Of course it is just the two of us most of the time. When the kids join us we just leave the Mazda at home and rent a van or whatever. thomanddebbie

TOAD

We've rented from Enterprise and used Uber also. We just picked up our new Georgetown in June and are working through these additional transportation issues.

Don't forget the cost of the base plate and size of the tow bar. Some cars base plates are a lot more expensive then others. You ever get your RV back from service.

TOAD

Hey Bill, we're just doing the research on this and I appreciate your insight. We got the rig back Saturday. The refrigerator ice is still screwed up but Daves tried hard and purchased us portable ice machine until they can get this fixed. So we are going to do a couple of the steering and suspension modifications this week and next. So, I'm
pretty jazzed about that. We want to have those complete before we head out before Labor Day. Hope you're having a great summer and everything is working fine on your rig. You take care look forward to connecting up.

Bought a 03 Honda Pilot with 190K miles for $5k, my wife likes driving this more then her Porsche Cayenne Turbo! We needed 3 rows of seats so this is perfect.

For us the TOAD wouldn't be driven daily once we were back in town and that is why we started looking at recommended tow vehicles with a little and age and typically higher mileage. That's why we wondered if the mileage mattered as much but now I understand that just because it is not running there are other components that are wearing on the vehicle besides the tires. Thank you for your insight and expertise.
