Just What is a Toy Hauler?  Put simply, they have all the comforts of home and an enclosed rear cargo space for the toys.

Let's look inside. The forward section of a toy hauler has the creature comforts. Like a place to sleep, kitchen, bath, and storage. Not to mention; AC, furnace, refrigerator, stove, shower/tub, and toilet.

The cargo area is served by a ramp that folds down from the back of the trailer. The ramp is spring loaded for easy operation. Just drive 'em in, tie 'em down, close the ramp and away you GO!

And to personalize it to be your Toy Hauler, you can customize it with accessories. Let's say a generator, TV, or better yet a satellite TV.  Might as well go for broke with a complete stereo system and computer desk.

The cargo area of your RV needs a few goodies, too. Tie downs are usually standard, but how about some nice diamond plate pieces to set off your toy hauler: Shelves, cabinets, racks, helmet hooks, and the like.

What more could you ask for? AHHHH! A built-in gas station complete with pump for your toys! And, how could you forget an awning to keep everything cool on those hot playground days. Now we're talking!
