Toyhauler Q's

I have been looking for quite some time now for a good used toy hauler and after many close buys, I think I finally found one.
2004 KZ Sportsman Sportster 22

I have been looking at these for awhile now since I will be pulling this with my Dodge 2005 Hemi and it's 4000lbs.

What do you guys honestly think?

That's why I finally stepped up to a Cummins to tow my 23-foot Stellar.
BTW it weighed 9300 lbs. on the axles recently...add the tongue weight into it and I was close to 11K lbs for just the trailer.

Never heard of that brand. I would stick with a major manufacturer if it was me.

KZ has been in the business for a while now. alot longer than other manufacturers. mainly an east coast deal until a few years ago. Can't go wrong with the kz, nice trailers, good quality. They are now making the inferno toy hauler, too big for what you are looking for, but at least you can see the quality of work they do.

Steller is an Attitude they are reputable.
All manufactures will have issues so just buy the floor plan you like! Within your towing specs, Everyone would like to think the brand they bought is the best one otherwise they wouldnt have bought it it is a matter of personal choice and what you can tow.
Sounds like you have a good tow vehicle just remember you will bring more than you tought you would

Toy Hauler Question

What is the height of the rear door on the average toy hauler in inches & do they vary by company? also how many inches tall can a rhino be and still fit inside?

I ended up buying a Thor Tahoe 21tb and the rear door when the bed is in the up position is 76. Width isn't a problem but the depth is where I ran into most of the problems with the TH's I was looking at.

Well our last trip to Johnson Valley we were sitting under the easy ups and somebody said, hey wouldnt it be nice if we had misters?
So i ran to the toy hauler and broke out my portable misters! Was a big hit that weekend!
If anyone saw our rhino when it gets loaded (well a few here have) it would be worth many laughs, I call it the beverly hillbilly rhino

BUT I MIGHT NEED IT! So i am bringing it!
