  1. That's how I basically find a Boondocking spot. ..lol good job. I have to agree with the previous statement. when I had my tow vehicle I just lugged it around. It's much easier to get around now that I don't have the toad anymore, but I am in a class C. Good luck what ever y'all decide and thanks for sharing. Happy trails. :)

  2. if you guy did not travel some much, would you be able to save money living in your rv? I am thinking about buying one and traveling some but nowhere near as much as you guys lol.  nice videos keep up the good work

  3. G mumbling with vocal fry, chris rambling. I Love your Alaska videos, but the driving ones seem tooo long, blah blah blah, static view. I want to take a nap after about 3 min.
    Troll comment, but perhaps a constructive comment. Edit Edit Edit!
    Go Discover something! Hate being stuck on that youtube windsheild listening to a one way phone call.

  4. Chris, since  I am on the fence between a Piaggio or using my Nissan Leaf as a TOAD.  I am looking forward on how you fair with a used tow kit and vehicle or even the process of attaching it to Atlas.   I see you and G's story as a quick read so thanks for the preface of what's to come.

  5. We have a Class C and pull a full size Cargo Van with a Tow bar. No issues at all, just have to put van in neutral and let engine idle. Yes it used gas but not much, cheaper than a $1500 lube pump or a quick drive shaft disconnect. Also use a Blue Ox brake setup. Not real happy with the brake setup, as i find myself over riding with manual button a lot.

  6. Someone else mentioned a scooter as a possible alternate option, the little Yamaha Zuma's are real good on fuel (80-100 mpg) and easy to stow on the RV..just a suggestion..Look at the used 50cc two stroke models..

  7. Learn to read those mirrors like Chris did.
    You did good parking but many can't get any sense of distance with spot mirrors or even a good West Coast Mirror.
    But having G check was a waste of her energy! LOL!

  8. I'm not sure if you can tow a vehicle with a automatic transmission with rear drive. With some jeeps you can put the 4×4 transfer case in neutral and they can be tow.. Do some research before you purchase a vehicle. Safe travels.

  9. Chris in my research I found info that you may or may not have utilized.  http://www.motorhome.com/download-dinghy-guides shows autos by the years 2000-2015 that are towable.  Also,   webcontent.goodsam.com/2014DinghyGuide.pdf.   Being a Sr. Blonde I thought any car you could hook on to could be towed..Education is amazing !  I found just because an auto was towable one year, the next year it might not be, then the following year it might again..This is why I found this guide to be so helpful because it does categorize each model and year.   Stay Safe !..

  10. The only YouTube videos I watch all the way to the end, is yours. That "nailed it!" Sound bite is the cherry on top of your video sundaes. I also like when G says, Hello Everybody, in the beginning of the videos and your playful chatter during the video gives me a chuckle. Keep up the good work!

  11. I know I am probably in the minority here, but we have had 3 motorhomes. 2 class C and 1 class A. When we got the Cass A we thought it would be a good idea to get a tow car and equipment,  which we did. But honestly, we spent most time just lugging the tow car around and used it far less then we ever thought and it dragged our already poor mileage down and was always a hassle to park it where we wanted. In campgrounds most of the time we had to disconnect the car, park it some other place, park the MH and then reverse the process. It was hard on the MH and on the car. This was of course many years ago and I am sure the technology has changed. Your life style is probably different than ours as we stayed mostly in parks and campgrounds. You may find it handy but think about it real hard. How many times did you REALLY need a car when your bikes could do the same thing? Or use public transportation? We are going to California and Arizona next month for a couple of months and will use a rent-a-car company when we need it. In the long run those few times is cheaper than lugging around a car. Just my observation guys don't hate me for my opinion.

  12. Have you confirmed that your car is flat towable?
    When we were picking up our RV at the dealer there was a very unhappy customer that had just learned that the dealer had installed the tow plate brackets on his brand new Jeep Cherokee only to discover it was not flat towable. The Cherokee has to have the Active II drive to be towable and his did not have that. I never did hear who paid for that mistake.
