Have you ever wished you had a mobile garage that you could take around with you whereever you want? Well with the use of utility and cargo trailers you can! In a few words, a toy hauler is an RV that boasts a sizable storage space in which you can store your “toys”—boats, mopeds, quads, bikes, golf carts, snowmobiles, ATVs, and the like—while on the move.
Who needs a toy hauler?
Basically, if you’ve got big “toys”, such as snowmobiles, water sports equipment, lawn mowers or bikes of any form and intend on moving them about then you are in need of a toy hauler. Toy haulers let you avoid double-towing and gives you the storage space that you need in order to keep all your possessions safely stowed away. They are great for convenience as you are able to store and transport heavier toys around.
Toy haulers are great for people who spend a lot of time on the road with work. The cargo area provides plenty of room for all your tools or equipment and means that you can easily transport it from different locations with little hassle. For people with families who like to travel a lot and want the ability to bring whatever they want with them wherever they go a toy hauler is a great way to ensure they can.
Cargo Trailer Toy Haulers
Cargo trailers generally use a side entry door and a ramp that allows you to load and unload your gear without difficulty. Cargo haulers are a good choice for anyone who simply needs a large, safe enclosure in which they can transport their toys. They are much better with fuel consumption than other types of toy haulers that are on the market. Starting at a couple of thousand dollars they are an affordable option for those on a budget. There is a wide range of sizes available to help fit your needs.
Things to consider before buying a toy hauler
The first thing you need to think about is what are the weight of the items you will want to be carrying at one time. When looking at the potential vehicle you want to buy you need look at its towing capacity and see if it is more than what you need. It is best to factor in for any additional toys you might be buying or wanting to put in there in the future.
Along with weight you need to ensure that the trailer you choose is a big enough size to fit all your toys in. You also need to decide what size you are going to be comfortable driving.
As mentioned above, you need to find one that you feel you will be able to drive. Width, length, and weight all play a big part in determining drivability and, as a general rule, the lighter, narrower, and shorter a hauler is the more manageable it will be on the road.
A very important factor that you need to consider if what your budget is. Once you have worked out all your requirements you need to find a trailer that will fit in with your budget. Look at what you can afford in terms of buying or renting the trailer but also factor in things like fuel consumption, warranty and any customisation you may need. Shop around and see what deals and prices you can find.
