Following Bobís exampleÖ.

Iíve been towing a 2004 Jeep Wrangler LJ for a while now but the other day a dyed in the wool Jeep guy came up to me on the street and made me an offer on it that I couldnít refuse. Never happened to me before! So now, following Bobs example (well, sort of), Iíve replaced it with a micro car. A PURPLE micro car no less. Turns out a Chevrolet Spark is even easier than the Jeep to tow. And even In the strange current market a purple 2017 Spark is cheap as bark!

What about Bob? Bob has supposedly posted pictures of his toad several times, and I have yet to see it No matter how big I blow it up, or zoom in the picture, all I see is where some kid left one of those matchbox cars in the driveway behind his Tiffin Wayfarer

You're absolutely right...

Yup. Put it in neutral, flip the battery disconnect switch (that I havenít installed yet) release the parking brake and youíre ready to go.

Pete, I have question if you would allow?

I have noticed that on Interstates... mainly in Tenn, Ark, Tex, & Miss that every time I see one of those Tiffin Allegro buses; when I get close enough they have Alabama tags/plates and one of those fancy Jeep Wranglers or Opticons in tow. Is that an Alabama thang, a club or something? They sure seem to dominate the highway? I would ask one, but often times they have those Elephant / Roll Tide flags; so I stay away from them.... I get enough beat downs from them one Saturday out of every year
