Toy Hauler or Travel Trailer?

Looking for your guys opinions for which I should get. The toy hauler is cool because it holds everything, but where I go riding you can't park the toy hauler. So I was leaning toward getting the travel trailer. I could haul the grizz's in the bed or tow them behind the travel trailer so I could go riding anywhere I wanted to. Any advice?

??? You could park a travel trailer where you camp but not a toy hauler? Needs a little more explanation.

Their is no campgrounds where I ride or room for campers. Just trucks and atv trailers. So I normally camp at a campground and drive to the trails.

Easy choice, Toy Hauler. It gives you options, you can just use it to camp if you want or you can haul the toys and camp. A travel trailer does not.

We have a 2008 Weekend Warrior FS3000 and it is a great Toy Hauler and just as nice as most of the travel trailers made in the last few years.
It does not have the dedicated garage area like some, it instead can convert the back 20' from hauler area to what would appears to be a regular travel trailer area with 2 queen bunks that lower from the ceiling.

It has 2 - 75 gallon fresh water tanks so hauling enough fresh water in is not a problem if there are no hookups.

It also has an outside shower for rinsing off/showering outside as well as a 10' coiling wash hose for rinshing off machines if needed.

We also have a 20 gallon fuel station so we can haul in all the fuel we need for a long weekend or week stay.

It really is a fully contained get away trailer.

Unfortunately WW went out of business a few years ago but there are other brands out there that will be very similar and you can look for used o rleft over ones that fit your needs..

Easy choice. Travel trailer. Although a toy hauler is convienent, a travel trailer gives you more options. Too many times I have seen guys in toy haulers have to pack up their toy haulers and leave the campground in order to get their ATV's to the trail. Too much trouble for me to break camp everytime I need to trailer over to a trailhead.

I have a 2006 travel trailer, Keystone Springdale that I camp in and pull a 10 X 8 trailer with 3 ATV's. Tows like a dream and gives me all the flexibility that I need to zip around when I get to camp. There are some states that do not allow double towing but out west where I travel I am good to go.

I had a weekend warrior, now I have a raptor. This for me is a easy answer, toy hauler. Like mentioned already, 120 gallons of water, 40 gallons of gas, built in generator. No need to pay to stay in a camp ground. Heck of a lot nicer places to camp than a rule filled camp ground!!! And NO TOY HAULERS DON'T SMELL LIKE GAS INSIDE!!!

I would still get a Toy Hauler over the Travel Trailer and do what you are doing with it when legal and had to, pull the 2nd trailer behind the TH. For all the other times, you just load the TH and won't need the 2nd trailer.

I have actually been thinking of how I could use the truck to transport the 3 atv's from camping area to trailhead if we needed to someday like you mention in places that don't allow double trailers.
I know they make the Bedcover that will carry 2 ATV's on top and then I could probably make or modify a receiver mounted rack for the third one that I just carry in the truck bed when towing the TH.

110 gallons of water, generator, AC, heater, crapper with showers indoor and out, 2 recliners, complete tool box, and no smell of gas/oil in the living quarters. Over 1/2 of the used toy haulers I looked at smelled of gas and oil. I guess it depends on the model and how you take care of it. Only downside I would posssibly see is I only carry 30 gallons of fuel because I only have 6-5 gallon jugs for fuel.

I prefer boondock camping also. Spent 7 days in Wyoming last fall in a ton of snow during hunting season. Plenty of water, fuel, and heat and a great time was had by all.
Each unit has benefits but for me and my family and friends, hands down it is the travel trailer over the toy hauler.
