A toy hauler is more than just an RV. It is an RV with garage storage space to hold all your gear for your favorite outdoor activities. They can store kayaks to mountain bikes. Bigger ones can even store four-wheelers and jet skis. Many also have overhead storage in the garage to store helmets or smaller outdoor accessories. What makes toy hauler's garage space unique is the ramp. The ramp makes it easy to drive or carry your gear in and out of the RV. Toy haulers are extremely convenient for travelers who love to be outside and prefer to bring their own toys with them and they can be taken anywhere your RV can go. These types of RVs are ideal for families who love to travel and play outside.
Not only are they the perfect storage space and form of transportation for your stuff, but toy haulers are also your home on wheels. They are just normal RVs with a garage. They offer a kitchen, living and sleeping areas. Many toy haulers also have fold-down beds in the garage space when it is not being used.

The extra storage space makes it possible to always have your favorite outdoor toys with you, so you are always ready for an adventure.
