PostSubject: Toy haulers   Fri Aug 07, 2015 9:50 am

I was wondering what are the good brands on the toy haulers and what are the bad brands out there. I have been shopping and looked at a bunch here lately. Just tough to tell whats good and whats bad. I know a bunch of you guys have them for your side by side so lets hear how the ownership is going.

Which ones are built the best and which ones suck?

TBone - Make sure you measure the garage carefully to make sure your Jagged X will fit. The garage in most toy haulers is too small for the Jagged X. That's why I went with a custom built race trailer setup as my toy hauler.

Don't think any of them are built great. I've got a small work and play that has 13' garage.

I've had a few and found they are all pretty much the same only some have better options. The one thing to remember, get a floor plan that you like. If you do not like the floor plan when you purchase, you will never like it.

well my main love is the Fuzion from Keystone. They look like they are built ok. Just tough finding one with a garage that will hold the jagged. I don't get why these toy hauler builders make an rv for the family knowing we are going to probably be taking our families so we will have a 4 seater sxs. Well the 4 seater doesn't fit. Thats just weird to me. If I wanted to dominate the toy hauler world I would build a fuzion where a 4 seater sxs will fit.

the living quarters are real nice, the room is also nice, but for a week end,,, the living quarters could be a little smaller, and the garage larger for the toys so its not so close in the front and back of the sxs. with the slide outs they have now they could shorten up the living quarters just a little. (more room in the back) just my 2 cents, works for us.

The more I think about it, the more sense that a class C motorhome makes. There's plenty of living space and plenty of towing capacity for my buggy. They are also much more common around here so there's more to choose from. You can find them all day for $30k-$35k that are 5-6 years old and most will be built on a Ford E450 chassis with the V-10 gasser, which is a darn good motor.

We have thought several times about a motor home, but then we count how many times we have parked the trailer, then took off in the truck to go shopping or site seeing. That way the dogs stay behind in the trailer.

so what do you do if the power accidentally goes out while your gone and the temp rises real bad in the trailer?

We always come back if we know a storm is coming, or pray that nothing happens to the little ones.

Yea, my XP 900 2 seater does about the same in my 10 foot garage. Ranger Pat has to let air out of his tires to squeeze his ramp door closed.

I have a 2007 Keystone Raptor 3712 triple slide. Absolutely love the trailer. Gimpy is correct. We just purchased a 2015 RZR 1000 4 seater. The machine is 11'-10" (bumper to bumper); 12'-3" (overall). The garage is 11'-11"! I simple drop the air pressure to 5 pounds, back it in, close the back door and strap it down.

We have put about 40 to 45,000 miles on the trailer with no mechanical issues

Renee has been researching Grand Design Momentum trailers. I'm thinking that is the direction we're going.
