These Small Toy Haulers Are Big on Fun
Small toy haulers are an awesome way to get the most out of any trip, even if you don’t have an extra heavy-duty truck. These super versatile trailers provide the amenities of a normal RV, plus a place to store “toys” like ATVs and dirt bikes.
First, let’s take a closer look at small toy haulers and what to look for when shopping for one. Then we’ll show you 4 great toy haulers under 25ft.
What to Look for When Shopping for Small Toy Haulers
Put simply, a toy hauler is a towable RV that has a rear “garage” for keeping various vehicles that are accessed via a large ramp door in the rear. ATVs, dirt bikes, and even small golf carts and motorcycles are a few examples of the kinds of things people put in their toy haulers. While many toy haulers are quite large, the lightweight toy hauler travel trailers on our list are small enough that some can even be towed by SUVs!
When shopping for a small toy hauler, there are a few things to consider.
First is the length, height, and width of the trailer. A bigger toy hauler means more space to store your things, but it’s also going to be heavier and harder to tow. Height will also affect how much standing room you have.
You’ll also want to consider the UVW and GVWR of the toy hauler. The UVW, or Unloaded Vehicle Weight, is the weight of the toy hauler when it leaves the factory. This value doesn’t include cargo, water, or any extra equipment. GVWR is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and is the maximum possible weight the toy hauler can handle when fully loaded. You should never exceed this limit, or you’ll negatively impact performance and safety.
Subtracting the UVW from the GVWR gives you the CCC or Cargo Carrying Capacity. These weight limits are important because they decide how much you can load into the RV. And because toy haulers are often loaded with heavy extras like ATVs, you’ll want to make sure the weight limits suit your needs.
