10 Best Travel Trailer Toy Haulers

The travel trailer toy haulers we have in store for you today are fantastic toys themselves. Since everyone wants to get the most out of their RVs, why not go with a toy that hauls toys?

From Black Series to Grand Design’s new MAV travel trailers, this is a lineup for pure, unadulterated fun. If you’re looking for a solid travel trailer and you love the great outdoors, this is your dream list, with the best travel trailer toy haulers on the market. Enjoy!

What is a Travel Trailer Toy Hauler?

A travel trailer toy hauler is just what it sounds like, a towable RV that features a garage-type design for holding ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, kayaks, and just about any large, outdoor adventure vehicle you can imagine (depending on the size of the garage space, of course).

The fact that they carry around our favorite toys is not the only thing that separates travel trailer toy haulers from traditional travel trailers. They’re typically built with more durable frameworks, premium shocks, premium axles, and an eye toward off-grid lifestyles.

As a result of the additional weight they are capable of hauling, cargo-carrying capacities are much heavier than traditional travel trailers as well. A good travel trailer toy hauler features a design focused on adjusting the interior for space and toy accommodations.

It’s way different than your traditional travel trailer, from the roof to the tires. With that being said, let’s check out what’s on offer.

10 Best Travel Trailer Toy Haulers

Once you see what these travel trailers have to offer, don’t blame us for making you green with envy. Sure, a standard travel trailer will definitely take you places and you can do a lot to turn one into an outdoor machine.

However, these are built from scratch with outdoor living in mind and it shows in even the tiniest of design features.

1. Black Series TH19

Black Series TH19 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ 360° exterior camera system

⛔ The Black Series is a bit hard to get with limited availability

  • Length: 22′ 3″
  • UVW: 6,172 lbs
  • GVWR: 9,000 lbs
  • CCC: 2,828 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 900 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

What better travel trailer toy hauler to start with than the Black Series? These are popular, relatively new, and hard to get your hands on. Unfortunately, supply has yet to meet demand.

The Black Series TH19 is smallish yet loaded. The wet bath might not be everyone’s style but it’s nice, convenient, and spacious, with an outdoor shower available as well. Capable of sleeping 6, there’s more than enough space and style to accommodate a mid-size family.

One of the best aspects of the TH19 is the 360° camera system. It’s not designed for parking. You can lie in bed and check out everything around the camper before you head outside. If you’ve ever spent a lot of time well off the grid, you’ll know how significant this feature is.

With a roughly 10′ x 7′ garage space, you can haul anything from a mid-range ATV to a number of dirtbikes. Once the toys are outside, the dual-opposing sofas convert into bunk beds for 4.

2. ATC 2419

ATC 2419 travel trailer toy hauler- Exterior
ATC 2419 - Interior
ATC 2419 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Rock-solid, all-aluminum frame

⛔ The factory converter-to-battery cable is often too small for charging needs in bulk mode

  • Length: 30′
  • UVW: 5,900 lbs
  • GVWR: 11,440 lbs lbs
  • CCC: 5,540 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 700
  • Sleep: 4

There are some who don’t dig the all-aluminum RVs out there, however, in this case, it’s a boon. The all-aluminum frame is rigid, sturdy, and won’t suffer from the elements in the way a wood frame will. Remember, the ATC is designed to get out there and be a workhorse in the wilderness.

With a massive CCC (Cargo Carrying Capacity) and 11′ x nearly 8′ garage space, you can park a large-class ATV or UTV in here with room to spare. Another plus on the ATC 2419 is the cabinetry. A lot of RVers complain about toy hauler cabinetry—the cabinets lose their ability to stay closed during travel. That’s not the case here.

The ATC is very stable within, built for years on the road while remaining functional and safe within. It also features three-season plumbing, a Progressive Dynamics 9560 converter, an ‘intelligent system’, 600W of solar paneling on the roof, and 13.5v water line heating pads. It’s ready for the wilderness whenever you are.

3. Heartland Torque T285

Heartland Torque T285 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Tie-downs are welded directly onto the frame for exceptional holding strength

⛔ No solar or converter comes with the Heartland Torque T285

  • Length: 35.9′
  • UVW: 8,360 lbs
  • GVWR: 12,800 lbs
  • CCC: 4,392 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,240 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

Of the 10 travel trailer toy haulers on our list, the Heartland Torque T285 is the quintessential party house as much as it is a toy hauler. With the power queen out of the way, the ramp drops down into a party deck with a railing. With a garage space that’s 16′ deep, the additional party deck combines into an enormous, open space.

This monster can sleep 8 and host even more for a massive grill out or a serious ATV event. In fact, this is so spacious that even if you don’t have a toy to haul around, it’s still an attractive option for those with large families or who appreciate a large guest list.

If you do have a large ATV or UTV, don’t worry. You can very nearly park a car in this rig. The 4,392-lb CCC opens the door for a variety of large ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles, etc. If you own it, odds are good the Heartland Torque T285 will haul it.

4. Forest River Work and Play 29SS

Forest River Work and Play 29SS - Interior

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The zero-gravity ramp door is awesome

⛔ The dometic thermostat isn’t the most renowned thermostat in the world

  • Length: 32′ 11″
  • UVW: 6,790 lbs
  • GVWR: 10,500 lbs
  • CCC: 3,710 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,312 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

What an interesting name among the large list of travel trailer toy haulers. The Forest River Work and Play is just that—a workhorse and a toy. Want to take it hunting? Perfect. Want to go on an off-road adventure with the kids? Perfect.

The 29SS is a larger model in Forest River’s lightweight toy hauler lineup but it can hold its own in most scenarios. The spacious, interior design features a dual-entry bathroom, flip-up sofas, plenty of counter space, and massive garage space that’s nearly 16′ deep.

There’s enough width to park a large ATV and the zero-gravity ramp door transforms into a party deck in case you decide to grill out after a day on the trails and in the woods.

When you’re done picking the ticks off, you can hit up the spacious bathroom with a large, stand-up shower and skylight. Its large master bedroom features a king-size bed with plenty of walk-around space. In fact, the entirety of the 29SS feels spacious. Feel free to stretch out after a day on the road!

5. Coachmen Adrenaline 23LT

Coachmen Adrenaline 23LT - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Heavy-duty Dexter axle with Nev-R-Adjust brake system

⛔ King bedside and foot space are nowhere near as wide as they look on the floorplan

  • Length: 29.6′
  • UVW: 5,752′
  • GVWR: 9,600 lbs
  • CCC: 3,788 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 948 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The Coachmen Adrenaline 23LT is another fine and spacious addition to our list of best travel trailer toy haulers. The garage space is a shade over 13′ deep and there is plenty of width with the roll-over sofas and the power Queen.

The dual-entry bathroom is spacious and you won’t have any problems cleaning up after a day outside. The ‘Alumicage’ construction is rock solid and the 23LT also includes a beefed-up, Dexter axle, and Nev-R-Adjust brakes.

It’s clearly designed to take it off the beaten path and while it couldn’t hold its own against the Black Series, it’s capable of far more than just highway travel. For those that like to pack big, you’ll appreciate the pass-through storage as well.

6. Forest River No Boundaries 19.1

Forest River No Boundaries 19.1 travel trailer toy hauler- Exterior
Forest River No Boundaries 19.1 - Interior
Forest River No Boundaries 19.1 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Loaded for outdoor adventures including a J-cradle kayak rack

⛔ The floors are a little bouncy

  • Length: 24′ 11″
  • UVW: 4,941 lbs
  • GVWR: 7,896 lbs
  • CCC: 2,955 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 896 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

The term ‘no boundaries’ insinuates quite a lot, especially in the mind of someone with adventure flowing through their veins. You can bring a lot with you as well, as the Forest River No Boundaries 19.1 is heavily focused on storage capacity and compartments.

While it only sleeps four, it feels even more spacious, with 6’6″ of headspace, a 10.5-foot deep garage, and 5.4 feet between the wheel wells. There’s no fancy power bed in the rear on this one but you’ll hardly miss it.

The fold-up sofa works fine and is quick and easy to stow away and pull out when it’s needed. The bathroom feels a little tight but Forest River did a great job offering a full dry bath in an RV this size.

7. Heartland Fuel F-305

Heartland Fuel F-305 travel trialer toy hauler- Exterior
Heartland Fuel F-305 - Interior
Heartland Fuel F-305 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Excellent entertainment space for guests and parties

⛔ The ramp doesn’t convert into a party deck unless you purchase the upgrade

  • Length: 35.9′
  • UVW: 8,620 lbs
  • GVWR: 12,800 lbs
  • CCC: 4,132 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,380 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The Heartland Fuel F-305 is another excellent travel trailer toy hauler from Heartland. If it makes it on our list twice or more, it means that the manufacturer is putting out some excellent products.

Like its Heartland Torque T285 counterpart, the garage depth on the Fuel is 16′, so you’ll have plenty of room to park a large ATV.

Theater seating, across from a large sofa and dinette, and plenty of counter space don’t detract from the overall roomy feel of the Fuel. Even the king bed can’t take up all the space in the master bedroom.

The bathroom is dual-entry, large, and accommodating and the back features a power queen that drops down over dual-opposing sofas (which also fold out to form a bunk bed).

With the ramp door forming a party deck, combined with the immense amount of room, you’re only limited by your imagination in terms of what you can do.

8. Jayco Jay Flight Octane 222

Jayco Jay Flight Octane 222 travel trailer toy hauler- Exterior
Jayco Jay Flight Octane 222 - Interior
Jayco Jay Flight Octane 222 - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Aluminum-lined exterior storage compartments are pretty beefy

⛔ The queen bed is a tight fit

  • Length: 26′ 6″
  • UVW: 5,785 lbs
  • GVWR: 8,250 lbs
  • CCC: 2,465 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 820 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

It wouldn’t be a list without Jayco and the Jayco Jay Flight Octane 222 is a prime example of what Jayco can do with limited space. The ramp is a 7′ party deck conversion and it features an interior table that shifts out onto the deck.

If you’re down for an outdoor meal on the patio, you can do that. If you need some shade, the 18′ power awning handles that nicely. There’s not much counter space and the Queen is a little tight fitting but it makes sense when you have a large garage space and a full, dry bath to cram in as well.

You can’t quite lie down in the large shower, but it’s a close thing. The fold-out queen bed/sofa in the back creates enough sleeping space for 4 and you have to love the 8′ 1″ worth of width in the garage space.

9. Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE

Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE travel trailer toy hauler - Exterior
Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE - Interior
Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Easy-on, easy-off magnetic rear screen wall

⛔ A weird design decision to include a wooden stove cover over a three-burner gas stove

  • Length: 20′
  • UVW: 3,500lbs
  • GVWR: 5,900 lbs
  • CCC: 2,400 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 426 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

The tiny Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE is the little engine that could. It’s one of the smallest on our list of travel trailer toy haulers but it definitely belongs here. You can tell that Coachmen put in the work to create a small frame toy hauler that still manages to be roomy.

The 70″ roll-over sofa also features a free-standing table so you can convert an entire garage space into a dinette or sleeping quarters. It also features plenty of storage space, including pass-through storage access on the exterior.

It’s tiny enough that you get the feeling you’re experiencing life in general in a small forward section with a garage on the other side of the door. However, once the toy is out, the living space is far more accommodating and spacious.

10. Grand Design Momentum 27MAV

Grand Design Momentum 27MAV travel trailer toy hauler- Exterior
Grand Design Momentum 27MAV - Interior
Grand Design Momentum 27MAV - Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Roof warranty increased from 12 to 18 years

⛔ Headrests in the bench seats turn into lumps when converted to a queen bed

  • Length: 32′ 3″
  • UVW: 6,835 lbs
  • GVWR: 10,995 lbs
  • CCC: 4,160 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,200 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The Grand Design Momentum 27MAV is a brand-new model option from Grand Design and the chatter is quite loud on this one (in a positive way!). There’s plenty of sleeping space for a mid-size family.

Grand Design made sure to focus on the hallway, allowing for enough width so you never feel claustrophobic, despite the size of the bathroom and the shrinking of forward space to compensate for the garage area.

The bathroom is spacious with a large shower and skylight. There’s also an incredible amount of storage space, including a massive storage box hiding under the Queen bed. The L-counter runs back beside the fridge, accounting for less space while providing more surface area to work on.

How Much Does a Travel Trailer Toy Hauler Cost?

The cost for travel trailer toy haulers is a bit expansive, from smaller models priced in the $20,000 range to much larger, more luxurious models around $100,000. That’s an $80,000 disparity in between so the true answer is dependant on what you want in a toy hauler.

For instance, you will find the Coachmen Freedom Express 17BLSE priced between $24k and $28k in most places, while the Black Series TH19 is closer to $80k and the Heartland Torque T285 is somewhere in between.

What Size Vehicle Do You Need to Tow a Toy Hauler?

A healthy mix of half-tons and 3/4 tons will take care of your toy hauler towing needs. It just depends on the GCWVR. Half-tons will handle most of the sub-6,000-lb toy haulers out there. Plus, many of today’s half-tons are capable of hauling a lot more.

Today’s Ford F-150s are capable of towing up to 13,000 lbs when capably equipped and GMC, Dodge, and Chevy offer comparable models as well. Some of these travel trailer toy haulers can get heavy fast, however, especially if you throw a large ATV in there on top of everything else.

In those cases, a 3/4 or 1 ton is the better bet.

Can You Put a Car in a Toy Hauler?

Can You Put a Car in a Toy Hauler?

If the shoe fits… In reality, if you have the towing capability and you can fit the car in there, it’s possible, sure. These toy haulers are really designed for ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, motorcycles, and things of that nature.

However, if we’re talking about a Mitsubishi Mirage, Hyundai Venue, Chevy Bolt, Smart ForTwo, or Ford Ka (Just to name a few examples), it’s certainly possible. Some of these toy haulers have a CCC of well over two tons and some of these cars weigh far less than a single ton.

If the width, depth, and weight are all well within the specs, do your thing. Just be very careful and make sure you know the exact weight of the car. Another thing worth noting is the weight capacity of the ramp. Just because a toy hauler has a 4,000+ CCC, doesn’t mean the ramp does as well.

Will My Toy Hauler Smell Like Gas?

Whether or not your toy hauler smells like gas depends on a few things. Number one, how old is the toy you’re parking in it? Does it have a few slow leaks? How clean and well-maintained is it? Did you just finish topping it off with gas? Maybe you spilled a little bit in the process.

If there is exposed gasoline, even a small drop, the vapors will fill up the room to one degree or another. Try and make sure that whatever you park in there is clean as a whistle. You may not want to sleep in the RV if you just pulled an ATV in there and it has a small oil leak.

Can You Rent a Travel Trailer Toy Hauler?

You sure can. There are a growing number of RV rental agencies out there that would be happy to hand over a toy hauler for a weekend of fun. You’ll have the best luck going with a peer-to-peer option like Outdoorsy.

Peer-to-peer opens up a lot of avenues in terms of choice and you’ll have a broader selection range across the US, wherever you live.

The point is, that there is something on this list for everyone. There’s no reason to hook up to shore power in a quiet campground with these puppies—they’re built for adventure and lots of noise. Have lots of fun out there and always remember to stay safe!
