What to Consider Before Buying a Toy Hauler Travel Trailer

Before you head to your nearest RV dealership, there are a few things to think about when you decide you want a toy hauler.

  • What vehicles or equipment do you want to carry in your toy hauler?
  • Do you have a tow vehicle? If so, what are your vehicle ratings (stopping power, towing capacity, payload, etc.,)?
  • What terrain will you be driving on?
  • Is there a certain length of trailer that best serves the places you visit frequently (Think state and national parks, as well as trailheads, etc.)?

Towing Capacity and Cargo Carrying Capacity

Obviously there are other things to consider including the price of the rig you decide to buy, but it’s important to nail down exactly what you want to carry inside your toy hauler to avoid carrying more cargo than your trailer or towing vehicle is capable of.

If you don’t have a tow vehicle, and even if you do have one, it’s important to double-check which vehicles are in your price range and also if it’s capable of towing a toy hauler. Not only will you be carrying people and a trailer, but you’ll also be adding the weight of another vehicle (like an ATV) or other outdoor equipment.

Where Will You Take Your Toys?

Last but not least, you should think about where you want to take your toys. Will you be off in the back country unloading motorbikes or dropping your kayaks and paddle boards at the marina? You’ll want a toy hauler that makes it easy to adventure, while also considering the size limitations of the places you visit.

State and national parks have limitations on the size of vehicles entering and camping inside their boundaries, so it’s important to know the length and size of your toy hauler to avoid any issues.
