    I always think that the use of the word 'Toad' for your tow car makes it sound a bit down market.
    Looking through the CC magazine (yes I know,sad) I noticed they where mentioned as a 'support car' Now doesn't sound better'
    "I have a Recreational vehicle and a support car":thumb:
    Any more names to uplift the Toads status? :Smile:

    i,m not scoffing have been using one since the 70,s .and lots of other forms of vehicle recovery gear.
    i believe they are legal but many sold in uk arent .
    the automatic reversing is wrong on many .
    but its easily remedied to a legal system that works .

    Always thought the name 'Toad' just came from the fact it was 'Towed' and nothing to do with the ugly amphibian
