Opinions on Avon Redstart dinghy

Anyone have any experience with Avon dinghies, specifically the Redstart?

Looks like the selling point is lightweight (41 lbs) and the ability to roll this dinghy up easily into a small package because of the lack of a solid transom and hull/floor. However, I wonder how well they'll tow without a hard bottom or inflatable keel. I think if we had one we'd occasionally deflate and stow it, but I'm guessing we'd primarily tow it.
