Here at Beckley’s Camping Center, we love toy hauler RVs—they’re among the most versatile rigs on the road today. The signature feature of this unique class of RVs is that its rear portion is designed as a garage, allowing you to bring along your favorite toys and goodies on camping adventures. Whether this includes an ATV, a dune buggy, or a motorcycle, a quality toy hauler can handle the transport with ease. The back door of toy hauler RVs drops open to create a ramp to allow easy access for all your favorite toys, and yes, even grownups need their toys!
Types of Toy Hauler RVs
If you’re in the market for a toy hauler, you should understand the four categories this type of RV can fall under:
Tent trailers: A tent trailer is a combination of a trailer and a tent—its length is divided in two, one half holding the collapsible tent and the other half serving as an open space to haul your toys. Tent trailers usually have the capacity to transport two motorcycles or one quad when the tent is folded.
Travel trailers: A travel trailer is fully enclosed with a rear or side door to load your toy. The trailer hooks up to the towing rig using a regular back hitch, and there is no physical separation between the toy storage area and the living area. Stop by Beckley’s to take a look at KZ MXT Toy Hauler Travel Trailers.
Fifth wheels: A fifth wheel is essentially a larger version of the travel trailer. In addition to the excellent amenities offered by fifth wheels, they feature a hauling area that is separated from the living area by a wall. Fifth wheel toy haulers allow you to pack in your toys without having to worry about imparting the smell of dirty gas to your living area. Take a look at our inventory of Keystone RV Raptor Toy Hauler Fifth Wheels.
Motor homes: A motor home goes one step beyond a fifth-wheel—it combines the size and amenities of the fifth wheeler with an even more spacious living area. Think of a motor home as a large bus with a dedicated living space and a hauling section. View our popular Newmar Canyon Star Motor Home Class A Toy Hauler.
Uses of Toy Hauler RVs
Beyond having the ability to transport ATVs, dune buggies, and motorcycles, toy hauler RVs are great for recreational travel on their own. You can take them out to camping adventures, and they can serve as temporary housing in case of an emergency. They’re great for either the laid back family or the more adventurous one. Families that prefer to go somewhere and then stay put have the luxury of extra space to enjoy. Adventurous, motorsport-minded families can, of course, bring along all their toys.
