Have Toad Will Travel
No, not with the amphibian. A toad in this case is a car towed behind a motorhome. This way we can set up our home on wheels and use the "toad" as a way to explore, run errands, etc...
Our toad, “Sarge”, is a 2011 Jeep Wrangler and is the one and only car we ever special-ordered. That way we got the options exactly how we wanted them (Crank windows! Yes!) as well as the hard top and color we wanted. Little did we know when we bought Sarge back in 2011 that we would be towing the Jeep behind a motorhome!
And what a bonus that proved to be as our Jeep is flat-towable (That means all 4 wheels on the ground…no dolly needed.) Just a set up with a tow bar. (We have a Blue Ox tow bar and base plate)
Another advantage....Sarge is a 2 door Jeep with a very tight turning radius. That's a big plus when it comes to finding parking!
Sarge only got his name a couple years ago. How?
From a character in the first “Cars” movie. Our church did a “Trunk or Treat” for the community, and we dressed up the Jeep as Sarge from “Cars”, and the name stuck.
We’ll do another post about our journey into our choice of RV at another time.
