Americans are more on-the-go than ever, with the sudden availability of remote work allowing for maximum flexibility among many families. If you’re looking to hit the road with your family in the near future, you’ve likely looked into purchasing a toy hauler.
A toy hauler is a great RV for a variety of reasons. The extra space that this model of RV can provide can be highly advantageous. You can use it, as the name implies, to bring along a bunch of entertainment options for your family. You could also convert this space into a home office for the road.
What do you need to consider when looking into toy hauler options? Read on and we’ll walk you through a few factors to look into.
1. Garage Size
It should go without saying, but the first thing you’ll want to look into when it comes to your toy hauler is the size of the extra garage space. Not all toy haulers come with the same size space, so some will be larger than others.
As you might imagine, a larger RV is more likely to have a larger garage space to boot. On average, the garage you’ll find on these vehicles will be somewhere around eight feet wide and twelve feet across, with some variation.
However, massive RVs could have garages that get as big as twenty feet across.
You’ll need to consider how much space you need to get what you want out of this additional area. You’ll also need to consider how much you can really spend.
2. Fifth Wheel Option
How toy haulers support this additional space often varies by vehicle model. Generally, you’ll find toy haulers with one of two design options. These RVs will connect to a driving vehicle in different ways.
Travel trailer toy haulers are much-loved and work great if you’re hauling something like kayaks or bikes.
Fifth wheel options, however, tend to be more spacious and offer more to the purchaser. For this reason, they are also more expensive much of the time. They also tend to weigh more, which might mean they may require more out of your truck and gas mileage.
3. Sleeping Capacity
You’ll also want to consider how much space there is for sleeping in your RV space. Obviously, you’ll want to ensure there’s a spot for each member of your family.
Will you need even more space, however, if you decide to invite a friend along on some trip? Another extended family member? You’ll have to consider how much sleeping space you’ll really need before making a purchase.
