Do you and your family love to be active when you go on trips to the lake or mountains? Toy haulers are great for families with ATVs, motorcycles, jet skis, snowmobiles, kayaks, bikes, and similar items because of the garage space they offer for these. Toy haulers are flexible, meaning they can be towed as either a fifth wheel or travel trailer.
Fifth Wheel RVs
Fifth wheel RVs are exclusively designed for pickup trucks because they attach to the bed of the pickup. These are unique because of the extra space you get in the portion that rests atop the pickup bed. Fifth wheel RVs are typically among the most expensive but also the most luxurious. Because of their size, only pickup trucks with true towing power can handle them.
The alternative to a fifth wheel RV is a travel trailer, which (while it can be towed by a truck) can also be towed by a large SUV or van. Travel trailers are typically more affordable than most fifth-wheel RVs and still offer many of the same luxurious amenities. These trailers are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations.
