Our Toad is going to be a 2016 Smart Fortwo, and it'll be carried on a 12' Aluma trailer.

A gas powered smart car is also built to be flat-towed. This means that all four wheels can be left on the ground so you don't need to use a flatbed trailer or any other additional towing devices besides the hitch. Jan 8, 2019

We did look at the flat-tow option...
Since we also have a golf cart that might be taken on trips (as an alternative); we felt that the trailer offers us more flexibility.

First time we saw a Smart Car we thought it was a golf cart...

Shout-out to Roadmaster! We just picked up our 2020 Honda Civic Sedan Sport MT (6 speed manual) after a custom baseplate installation (first for this vehicle) at Roadmaster HQ. We were looking for a (fairly) lightweight toad to pull behind our 2019 Thor Freedom Traveler A30 and came across this Civic, which isn't (currently) listed in the Toad guides I reviewed. The Civic's Owner's Guide specifies that the manual transmission version of this vehicle is indeed towable behind an RV, but our local CW and a small hitch shop weren't sure there was a baseplate that would fit. Fortunately, Roadmaster is just a two hour drive from our home so after communicating with them they were happy to create and install a baseplate for us...for free! This now means they can now outfit any such Civic with an identical baseplate. They also installed (at our cost, of course) the Invisibrake 8700 with remote monitor (module under the driver's seat), hooked us up with a Falcon All Terrain tow bar, and sent us on our way. Plug-N-Play! The customer service at Roadmaster was second to none. They answered the phone and responded to emails right away and were just very friendly and helpful. So if you're looking for a 4 wheel down toad and a very nice Roadmaster setup I recommend the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan Sport MT and Roadmaster without reservation.
