My first year with the MH I did not pull a toad. Used only rental companies that would pick me up at the campground. Worked great.

What about public transportation closer to metro areas like Cherry Hill campsite in College Park md. that offers hourly shuttle service into DC or 2 campsites out side of downtown New Orleans, must be many others, just saying. Not much into the camping aspect as into sightseeing the larger metro areas.

Wrangler Unlimited with Blue Ox setup and M & G Engineering brakes...easy hook up and disconnect, no boxes or brackets to mess with for the brakes. The Jeep makes a great toad....

Two summers ago we camped about 45 minutes west of Marquette. Stopped at Marquette airport and rented a car for a week. Travelled the whole western half of the UP in the rental car, returning to camp each night. Most airports have car rental agencies. Mackinaw City has rental agencies that serve it--some a short distance away at Pellston airport.

Sure, but I don't travel through Pellston on my way to Mackinaw. It's just easier for us to tow.

I tow a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with blue ox base plate and roadmaster Blackhawk all terrain tow bar.

Tows very nice. I did increase the air pressure in the air bags to 75 psi from 60 psi. For some reason that made a difference going over bridges in the back and forth rocking.

So far towing has been very easy.

2014 CRV behind our Class C. Complete Blue Ox setup including brakes. Wish now I had known about the braking systems you don't have to hookup all the time

2013 Cherokee Trailhawk Jeep behind our 3050 motorhome. 4 wheels down and not as hard to get into as the Wangler. We towed this summer without any problems. Takes us about 10 minutes to connect the car to the motorhome - I usually do one side and my husband does the other side. I took pictures so we could remember where all the connections go, and was glad I did.
