What is a Toy Hauler?

The last several years have brought about a revolution in the RV industry. Many RV owners in the past have always wanted to take motorcycles, scooters or ATVs with them on their camping trips. However, they had to add an additional hitch on the back of their camper to pull a trailer for their “toys” along with gas and tools and everything else that goes with that. Pulling a third trailer is dangerous to say the least.

Several years ago, many RV manufacturers began making travel trailers and 5th wheel trailers with a built-in garage area in the back of RVs just to enable RV owners to take along their motorized toys when they hit the outdoors. These are called “toy haulers“.

Toy haulers come in almost every size; from a small 23-ft camper, to a 40-ft, totally decked-out 5th wheel that has all the comforts of home. Some include king size beds, full bathrooms with garden tubs, a full kitchen with solid surface countertops, microwave ovens and big flat screen satellite TVs.

Toy haulers have a fold down ramp for loading and unloading your toys and equipment. Being lined with diamond plate and tie downs, they are extremely sturdy and well-built. These RVs are designed to haul a lot of stuff and to get you where you want to go. Most will have a place for a built-in optional generator so you won’t even need any hook-ups as they are completely self-contained.

When you are finished your outdoor activities, you will be able to relax on the inside in air-conditioned comfort as you watch for favorite show, cook a great meal and sleep in total comfort. You have all the comforts of home while living all the excitement of your outdoor adventures.

Toy haulers are comparably priced with other types of RVs. When buying a toy hauler it all depends on what toys you want to take long and where you want to go and how much you want to spend. There are new and used toy haulers that will fit every budget.  You will need at least a ¾ ton truck to pull most toy haulers safely as they are heavier than most RVs because of the extra construction needed for sturdiness.

Toy haulers provide RV owners with many more options for fun and adventure exploring the great outdoors as they travel this great land of ours. Find a local RV dealer in your area, ask them questions, look at some of the models available. You will be impressed.
