Just bought 2016 Thor Citation 24SS

Hello!
Newbies to RVing but have cruised our sailboat for 20 years (part time).
Land Ho! Here We Come!

Super excited for this new chapter!

Will be learning from you so thanks for the forum!

Our first task is to outfit our Citation and choose a tow vehicle.

Any ideas?

Congrats and welcome.

Before choosing a tow vehicle you may want to consider how you will be towing that vehicle (dolly, four down)? For some toads it doesn't really matter (pretty much any FWD car that is four down towable can also be dolly towed).

I'll put my usual plug in for the Ford hybrid and plug-in hybrid models here (C-Max Hybrid, C-Max Energi, Fusion Hybrid, Fusion Energi, and Lincoln MKZ Hybrid). All are four down towable, front wheel drive (and thus can also be dolly towed). The Energi models are a bit heavier (C-Max Energi is ~3900lbs) but you can also plug them in at the campground and get 20+ miles for "free" (in quotes because the cost of electricity is usually included in the site rental).

We've had good luck with our C-Max Energi towing it for a good 2000 miles now give or take.
