Welcome to our campfire!
How much Toad do you need?
How many people do you need to have room for?

This is a good source for info on popular "toad" vehicles, the basics of towing, towing equipment, towing laws, etc.

i would start with the listings from Motorhome magazine or Good Sams. They give weights and technical information on towing setups along with tons of tips and tricks.

Transportation only, 2 door, & 2WD is fine. Just 2 people and a medium dog.

Hello Roger. I use a 2020 Chevy Spark LS with manual transmission. It is a small 4-door vehicle but surprisingly seats 4 comfortably. Very inexpensive and practical Toad. Works well for us.

Depending on the dog:
2016 or later Smart
You can tow them four-down; but we trailer ours.
Total combined weight is only about 3,000 lbs.

There's a couple of Ford Focus toads listed in the classifieds here all ready set up to flat tow. The Checvy Sonic is a great toad as well with automatic transmission at 2700 lbs.
