GMC Sonoma for toad
Permalink Closed


I have a very low mileage (65,000) 2005 GMC Sonoma with topper. Should I keep it for my new toad or is it not a good candidate? Also, why don't more RVrs put the toad on a trailer vs dolly or 4 wheels down. Wouldn't the trailer cost be less over time than wear and tear on toad?

When you get to an RV park, you have to find a place for your and your toad. Sometimes this is a problem and there will be an extra charge.

Check into it.  I looked at the Motorhome magazine's Downloadable Dinghy Guide site, and they didn't list the Sonoma among the GMC products that could be towed four down.  If you were to stay with the Sonoma, you would have to have either a dolly to put the drive wheels on or a trailer to carry the whole vehicle.  With that in mind, you would need RV sites with enough room for everything.

Thank you both for the input. Might just go ahead and sell "snoball". She was a good little girl while I needed her!

 I think if it has a standard transmission, most of that would go away. Also, look to see if they list the Chevy S10. If they do, the Sonoma is GMC's S10.
