From spartan and functional to large and luxurious, there’s a toy hauler that’s perfect for your next RV adventure.
When your RV travel calls for staying on the move, even when you’re parked, look to a toy hauler. Toy haulers, available from simple bumper tow models to lavishly appointed fifth wheels and motor coaches, let you take your off-road fun on the road with you without the hassle of double towing.
What Is A Toy Hauler
For those just merging onto the RV highway, toy haulers are RVs with a built in “garage” or cargo area, generally to the rear, for carrying everything from canoes to small cars. Toy haulers range from simple travel trailers with kitchens and a garage area that converts to a simple bunkhouse to lavish fifth wheels with tricked out living quarters up front and a separate, spacious garage with drive up gate at the rear. Gates, in some models, can even be set up to provide outdoor patios for relaxation after a long day of play.
Choose the right toy hauler by considering your travel habits, budget, what you’re stowing in the toy hauler garage, and your tow vehicle and at home storage space.
Choosing Your Toy Hauler
For weekend warriors there may be no better choice than a toy hauler travel trailer. Affordable and flexible smaller, bumper-tow travel trailers are available in ultra lite models that don’t require a heavy -duty towing vehicle, offer flexible sleeping areas, ranging from separate living quarters models to models that feature fold down beds that convert the garage space into a bunk house as well as models that combine the best of both options.
Ultra-lite towable toy haulers are ideal for hitting the road with friends and family — and their bikes, kayaks, canoes or even a light-weight motorcycles.
Heavier duty travel trailer models are an affordable and livable choice for the show and competition circuit. Hit the motocross circuit or the car show trail with a work-and-play style trailer that combines the best of RV living with open living quarters. Flexible spaces and multiple floor plans mean there’s a trailer that’s right for buddy travel on the race circuit or family trips to the car show.
Why Do I Need A Toy Hauler
Head to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Bike Week or a smaller club rally in style and comfort – and keep your bikes protected and secure in a fifth wheel toy hauler. Top RV manufacturers offer fifth wheels with homelike designs to the front and spacious garages to the rear. Look for large slide outs to create living spaces big enough for entertaining and group travel.
What To Look For
Look for crown moldings, upscale window treatments, fully appointed bathrooms and master suites, kitchens fit for a chef, and home-like furnishings in the living quarters. Most fifth wheel toy haulers will feature wide-body construction making room for side-by-side motorcycle storage, room for a snowmobiles, ATV or utility vehicles in the garage. Look for a study tie-down system and flexible design elements, such as roll down screens and fold down seating or sleeping to expand your lifestyle options.
Motorhome or Towable Toy Hauler?
For long hauls, long stays, and comfort-forward travel, consider a Class C or Class A toy hauler. With a motorcoach toy hauler, travel with all the convenience of home – including your garage. Carry your golf cart in the garage for tooling around the park and tow your compact car for trips to the grocery store with a beefy motorcoach.
Once settled in, convert the garage area to a workshop, lanai for entertaining and lounging, or even a kennel for traveling pets.
Motorhome toy haulers range from family-friendly Class Cs, with cab over beds for younger travelers, open living spaces, including optional slides and separate generous garage area for storage and towing action toys. Unload the toys and create additional living space and look for models with optional patio decks for grilling and sunning.
Class A Toy Haulers
Expect a smooth ride and luxury living in a Class A motorhome with the added convenience of an attached garage. Choose an affordable Class A motorhome from a quality manufacturer or a smooth-riding diesel pusher for the ultimate in luxury. The innovative floor plans will be the envy of the park and extra storage space will be a boon during long stays.
