And check this one out. Spotted at Oshkosh 2011.

I thought it was the COOLEST thing, as it matches my Cherokee colors EXACTLY!

Well, the coolness wore off after I heard the price.

I think they wanted over $14,000 for the tug.

You can see the manufacturer's name in one of my photos.

Thank you all for your replies! I am looking for something specifically remote control. I did check out the link and I must say the prices are quite reasonable.
