Full timing in a toy hauler

Recommended Posts

Any one out there doing this thinking of buying another travel trailer and continuing to use the bed of my truck to tote the toys. The problem with a toy hauler is I'm thinking of living out of it with a family while traveling the us for work for about a year longest I'll be in one spot is 6 months. I'm worried about how comfortable a toy hauler would be for an extended period of time. Looking to spend around 20k max for a travel trail maybe 25k for a toy hauler pretty much willing to drive 500 miles for one.

I say toy hauler. You never know how much room you will need. Firewood, bikes etc. You can get a pretty nice hauler with all the amenities of a travel trailer and you will have the space if you need it. What are you towing with it? Toy haulers are heavier than a typical travel trailer so factor that in to your purchase. With that price point at least in my area that will buy a nice rig. Shop around and make sure you look at floor plans prior to diving in.

I'll be stepping in to a new rig next year myself. Good luck with purchase!

I have a toy hauler and I wouldn't full time in it. We did 2 months in a 27' bunkhouse trailer waiting for a house to be built. It was a lot harder than taking a vacation in it but I say no to the TH.

I'd be towing it with a one ton gas dually with a built big block. I know the gas milage will be sub par but it would take alot of gas to make up for the truck payment.

I'd go 5th wheel and add a enclosed behind it. They are a lot nicer to live out of.
