My wife and I have just purchased  small motor home
23 ft.Coach House.  We plan to use it three to four
times a year.  Are there special procedures that have
to be cared for in order to use a Prius as a "toad"

As the owner's manual says, it can't be done. At least the front wheels have
to be off the ground when towing.

 The Prius cannot be towed as a "toad" - all 4 wheels on the ground (as
is common with many automatic transmission vehicles).  You have to tow
with the front wheels off of the ground, so you will have to rent or
purchase a towing dolly.

If you use a towing dolly be sure to check the rear clearance.
