Toad setup

I recently bought a MH and am now looking for a tow vehicle. Can someone tell me what type of shop should I look for that can set the vehicle up for towing?
Thank you.

The manufacturer of the toad's base plate will have a list of installers. Any RV dealer will know who in the area that can install a base plate.

What model MH do you have? The hitch weight rating as well as the Gross Combined Weight Rating will determine what toad you can haul. I would suggest fully loading the coach including water, propane and fuel then having the unit weighed at the local truck stop’s Cat scale. With that info in hand you can make a more informed decision about what toad will work for your rig.
