We finally broke down and bought a tow vehicle. We have always pulled our motorcycles in a trailer. I still need to get a hitch riser and figure out the brake and tail light deal??

You will probably need a converter Eric, that makes it simple. Roadmaster makes a good one.

Eric, You don't need a white toad with a 60 series. They are only needed as an oil leak indicator with a 2 stroke detroit !!! Time for a matching paint job ! :lol:

Eric,

We bought a used 2002 CRV right before our trip to Rushmore. Bought a Roadmaster Stowaway tow bar that mounts on the front of the toad and put the Roadmaster "invisibrake" unit in it. The set-up worked sooo good on our trip we couldn't believe it. Less than five minutes hooking up or un-hooking and you're good to go. Call me next week and I'll give you low down but it was one of the best decisions we made. It's so hassle free we want to just hook the toad up and leave! Be prepared to wash the windows though on the toad after a few hundred miles of bus wake...lol Oh, make sure you don't care about the windshield or paint job on the toad cause they will get "experienced" over time.

Looks good....

Jim Smith one of club members has a remedy for that Randy he sprays the front of his and his other friends toad with a smooth bed liner materiel looks sharp Jim is a master with the stuff in all colors

All the Eagles around Albuquerque have the roof sprayed also with bed liner looks sharp

Ever see a Harley sprayed with bed liner his looks sharp so does his boat and everything else he owns lol check his gallery out http://www.smithsultimate.com

I thought the same Clifford!LOL I would paint it but it is pearl white and does not have a scratch with 60k miles. While at the eagle rally in Nasheville we went to a yard sale at the camping world next door. I passed a sterling all terrain with a bunch of brackets on a table. It looked almost new.I walked past then backed up and asked the guy how much. He said $250.00 and I offered $200.00. Dang if he didn't take it. Said he used it four times. He said the rest is in the truck?? I got the tow bar and brackets for a jeep wrangler as well as a chevy colorado. I ordered the quick detach brackets for the liberty. You just stick them in and twist. I think it the same as Randy bought. Cant even see them!! Boomer, I think I have a converter on my bus. When I bought the trailer the dealer mounted it in back to operate the lights. I am wondering how do you make the toad tail lights work. I got a connector that runs through the tow bar. I need to get all this figured out soon. We have decided to tow the car to Branson and leave the bikes here. Gona be strange!! I may have to take the moped!!LOL

Already thought that one out. The new trailer has a 4' front door to put bikes sideways and the liberty in the rear!!

I put our Lexus on a trailer and the Harley would fit got to be to much of a hassle so I bought a Wrangler

If not for the weight the GMC Envoy is a nice tow vehicle flip a switch remove the key lock the doors and go

I planned on using my 911 for a toad but I tore the front spoiler off twice loading it on the trailer and you would not believe what Porsche charges for those lol

Any one looking for nice 500 hp Porsche 1985 model I have it for sale trade it has been climate control storage for 5+ years in Scottsdale

I installed new tires and batteries had it detailed and been driving around Phoenix in it for the last couple of months 23,000 miles all for 30 grand hardest part of old age is getting rid of your toys but it has to be done

I sold my Harley a few years ago 1985 with 5300 miles that one made me sad lol the bus was without doubt the easiest to part with I have no idea how I got off on this LOL
