My better half and I went to a fiver about seven years ago. Got the itch recently to go back to a motorbike. We found a very well loved 2003 Tiffin Paeton 40GH and made the jump. I would be glad to hear any suggestions for this vehicle as we as suggestions for a toad.

That's...a rather unusually large motorbike!

Congratulations on the new RV! Hope it works out well for you. In terms of a toad, I would suggest giving some thought to what sorts of things you'd use the toad for. Many probably would suggest a Jeep, for example, but if you have no interest in going off road or on rough back roads it may not be the best option for you as the on-road handling is necessarily compromised to a greater or lesser degree when compared with many other vehicles.

We're not here to judge other members. If he wants to call his Tiffin a motorbike, then it's a motorbike. [emoticon]

Perhaps he meant motorbike and plans to put it on the back of the motorhome, either towed in a trailer or on a platform attached to the motorhome. If that is the case, his motorbike is his toad!

[emoticon]Some things never change, I was not aware that “ride” is specific to motorcycle. My bad it’s not a new old ride it’s a new old motorbike.

LOL.. .I call mine "smarter-than-me phone"

Congratulations on your Phaeton... Those I know who have them, love them.

I used a Fiat, manual transmission for a toad. A friend uses a KIA Soul, manual transmission for a toad.

With a handle of ”Jeepman71” poster must be familiar with the ride.
We just towed our Jeep Liberty out west and found it to be a great choice
Easy to set up for towing.
We are not big off-roaders but did enjoy riding fire lanes and other lesser used roads,
some of which suggested 4x4 and high ground clearance for watching wildlife.

2017 Big Horn FL3750
Arctic Fox 811
'10 Yellow Lab to keep us on our toes.

That handle is about 25 years old. My Jeep days are behind me. I finally learned it is one of those expensive hobbies..... kind of like RVs. I have been looking at a 2015 Renegade. Anyone useing one of these?
