Do you want to hit the road in a travel trailer, but bring along a motorcycle too? Toy hauler travel trailers are a specific type of travel trailer built just for that. If you want to bring along your motorcycle, ATV, go-kart, or other small vehicle, a toy hauler is the perfect option for you.
How is a toy hauler different from regular travel trailers? It simply has a space in the rear of the trailer that will carry your “toy.” Usually the rear of the trailer folds down and acts as a ramp so you can load the vehicle into the trailer. Toy haulers provide the amenities that normal trailer provide – but obviously they trade a little interior space for the toy hauling capability.
If you think a toy hauler is the best option for you, then the next step is to compare different toy haulers. It’s best to research all the brands and models and see which ones you like best.

Now about buying a toy hauler….
If you see a few here that you like, that’s a great starting point. Now visit the websites of those trailers and check out all the details. Compare the floor plans and think about which might work best for you.
Make sure the trailer doesn’t weigh too much. Check if your tow vehicle can handle the weight of the trailer fully loaded. You want to leave a lot of weight room between the trailer’s weight and what your vehicle can tow. Leave room for the weight of interior accessories and water tanks. Also, you must factor in the weight of your “toy.”
Also, be sure to check out the storage area and make sure it’s big enough for whatever it is you’re hauling.
Finally, the most important step is to go to a dealer and actually check out a few trailers. Step inside and spend some time in them. This will give you a feel for what it’s really like to own and live in a trailer. You can even pretend to do everyday activities – like cooking, sleeping, using the bathroom – to really get a feel for what living in the trailer will be like.
We hope this guide helps you in your search for the perfect toy hauler. Best of luck in finding a great one!
