Today's Toy Haulers
This week, Jeff checks out three different size toy haulers in three different price ranges, from a smaller entry-level unit to a high end larger model at Jeff's friendly RV dealer, Sutton RV . Check out this story and who knows, you may just decide that a toy hauler is just what you need.
Toy haulers have been around for almost as many years as there have been trailers. But back in the old days, the term ‘toy-hauler’ meant just that. It gave RVers a means to haul their dirt bakes, quads and even golf carts to their events or destinations and also gave them a place to eat and sleep.
Over the years, toy haulers have gradually got bigger and more luxurious but until the last half dozen years, were still mainly used by people with toys. Well now that has changed. Today, RVers are finding that a toy hauler offers a lot of flexibility as far as additional space and the use of that space.
Take that garage area. At first it was simply the ‘garage’ where everything was stored. Now once the toys are out of the garage, you have fold-down couches, and overhead electric powered beds that drop down to create a good size, comfortable sleeping area. Some garage areas even have a bathroom and small kitchen area.
Another useful area that was ignored until recently was the tailgate. Before it was simply used to load and unload the garage area. Now that same tailgate can be lowered flat with the garage area and has railing that folds up to create a good size, off the ground patio. Try doing that with a normal trailer. So as you see, a toy hauler can offer a lot more flexibility and space beyond just hauling your toys.
Great Local Campgrounds
There are times when you just don’t want to drive half day or more to find a great campground for a short camping trip. Michelle and Laurie from Two Gals And A Dog wanted to get away for just a few days and didn’t want to waste a half day getting there so with a little research, they found the Walker Island Campground and it was only a couple of hours from their home. Actually, they enjoyed it so much they even spent an extra day.
Next time you’re thinking about getting away for a couple of days, do check around and you may be surprised how many nice locations you can find less than a tank way. More at WalkerIslandCamping.com
RV Education 101 and Safe Drinking Water
