In the beginning, a toy hauler was a basic trailer for carrying heavy loads of snowmobiles, quads, and other small outdoor recreational vehicles to a place where their owners could enjoy them. Since then, some of them have developed into so much more. You can purchase a toy hauler with just the basics, or you can buy one with all of the space and amenities of a Class A Motorhome, plus the advantage of having a built-in garage to go.
What are some of the uses of a toy hauler?
Beyond the obvious use of carrying around ATVs, jet skis, and dune buggies, these Sport Utility Recreational Vehicles are good for recreational travel on their own. You can take them camping, and use them for temporary housing in an emergency. They are great for families who have different interests. Those who prefer to go somewhere and then stay put have the luxury of the motorhome. Motorsports enthusiasts can take their toys along, and enjoy exploring the great outdoors with like minded enthusiasts.
Getting full use of the garage
The garage of your toy hauler will have an easy to clean floor, and you can utilize it in various ways. You may have utility cabinets for storage and work benches for projects. With chairs and a sofa added, it can serve as a large living area. Hideaway beds transform it into extra sleeping space for larger families or guests. Optional fuel tanks in the garage facilitate refueling your toys.
