Welcome to the Outpost, Today I’m sticking with 1987 but a bit of an odd vehicle. The G.I.Joe Road Toad. This was an odd vehicle but it was one I had as a kid so I still love it. It’s a trailer, it’s a tow truck, and it’s a cannon. So it looks like this vehicle is designed to clean up damaged vehicles as it is called the Road Toad B.R.V. (battlefield recovery vehicle.)
I love the tow option on this vehicle and the little side seat for the controls seems a bit odd, and the feature of it being a trailer is also a bit strange but it is still a cool design and I know I got hours of play time as a kid towing vehicles around with this. I think the Road Toad would have been awesome as just a tow truck. No need for the trailer hitch if there was a cab on the front half of this vehicle. The tow cable is one of the coolest features on any G.I. Joe vehicle. Either way, love it or hate it, this is a pretty cool vehicle in my book. Who likes the Road Toad?
