    I'd like to hear about Toy Hauler pros or cons.

    How much do they get used?

    Are they convenient?

    Do they tow well, loaded?

    an interesting travel concept.:)

    If you go to forestriverinc.com you will find that they manufacture many different toy haulers in steel frame and aluminum. In their UScargo division they build a lower cost toy hauler that looks like a cargo trailer from the outside. They also manufacture a nice luggage trailer to tow behind your bike.Anyone interested in any of these can pm me and I will get you the best price on them. Sorry about the self promotion .

    Steve0,
    Thanks for the best price offer.

    What I'm looking for is some feed back from personal travel experience with a toy hauler RV.

    I've checked out almost every brand I could find on the Internet.

    We have a Desert Fox 19' Toy Hauler and love it. Very convienent and well laid out with lots of storage space. I use it a lot because I am a photographer and sell my work at Art Shows etc. This not only hauls my bike but also is my living space at shows.

    It does cost extra to pull a rig like this and Toy haulers are heavy and high as the Queen bed goes up against the ceiling on rails and the 'toys" go under. You know you are towing. Mileage on my Diesel 4x4 Dodge goes from 20mpg unloaded to about 13mpg with the rig behind.

    Also I am 61 so I invested in this unit because we plan to travel more when I retire next year.

    My 2 cents worth is this: If you figure the price of a Toy Hauler and the extra fuel price and something to haul it you are much better off driving your bike, just getting a Motel and eating out in most circumstances. If you just want to haul your bike you are still better off getting a SMALL tow behind trailer. BUT, if you got time and or a business where you can call it a business expense and 'use it all the time it makes a lot of sense.

    Back when I was in the Air Force, I spent some time at Mildenhall RAFB and we called it moldy hole RAFB. Always raining or foggy.:D

    I have a 25' 5th wheel sportsmen sportster by KZ. I love it, we go to NASCAR races with it and have the bikes get around with, much better in traffic.We do long weekends to ride other places.My dad has land on a lake that we use it for and it's nice to have the bikes. And hopefully Daytona next year. I love it but you have to use it to be worth it.
