New Toy Hauler, What to look for?

I am new to Toy Haulers and wondering what to look for. I am thinking one of the biggest problems is door or garage dimensions. I am looking for something small 25 to 27 ft bumper pull and only needs to sleep 2 adults. Any hints on what to look for or stay away from?
Thanks,
Rick

you just need to get out and look at them to see what you like and the diff layouts.

Brent at Eclipse RV can steer you in a good direction.
Eclipse Recreational Vehicles Inc.

Onan gensets are a plus IMO

Booyaa crew sent ya.

Stay away from cheap shit! with that being said buy a Weekend Warrior! FS2500 is what I have....will sleep many more than 2 but will give you plenty of room for hauling your rhino and a small quad or a Rhino and a few bikes...I recommend it because thats what I have and I love it....i have been fortunate enough to not have any problems so far!

When you shop around and look at them you will see the difference in craftmenship. I would say a ONAN genny is a MUST. I think the rear door heights are pretty much all the same. Make sure that the rear bed swings up high...I guess that could be a problem......You will find what you like. I bought my WeekendWarrior for 2 reasons. 1 they have been on the market forever ( which that may be changing soon ) and 2 The craftmenship seemed 2nd to none. Good Luck

joey, you couldnt pay me to get into WW right now, they are having huge issues right now, no warranties at all, no warranty work for 60 days minimum, go to GD.com and search weekend warrior, some bad news over there. check it out for yourself...
Weekend Warrior Warranty Is Gone - GlamisDunes.com
Weekend Warrior Is Gone? - GlamisDunes.com

this might influence your decision.
when i was in pismo last weekend, i saw more attitude and stellar trailers than any other brand even warrior, thats unusual.. Eclipse is making some real sick shit lately..

dont buy my video. it sucks anyway!!!!

nevermind the creature comforts, bring a towell to lay on,get underneath and look at the size of the chassis members,the weld quality,the supporting members of the holding tanks,the routing of the wires through the steel,grommetted or just rubbing on steel...its the chassis first then the creature comforts....some members are only welded on one side,good quality trailers are welded all around the unions....there's more to a good quality trailer than just fancy counters and nice graffics....later,cameron..

well said, i dont like any superlite trailers, they are weak, thay save weight by cutting huge holes in the frame, its not like they are made of titanium or graphite to make them light, they skimp on strength to make them light!

I have looked at the GearBoxes by Fleetwood and the Next Gens by Holiday Rambler, they appear to be nice units!

These are both nice units. There are a lot of nice trailers out now days compared to 5 years ago. I have a Fleetwood Nitrous Hyperlite which is the light version of the Gearbox. They don't skimp on the materials on these trailers to save weight... they used a lot of aluminum which adds to the price. Mines fully insulated for the winters, smooth side, built in pressure washer, fuel station, plumbed for a BBQ, Onan 4k, built in air compressor, Line-x'd ramp dual electric rear beds with a front sleeper, alloy interior, 720 watt surround sound with outdoor speakers, flat panel TV, all LED exterior lighting and constructed with stainless screws unlike many others. Sleeps 6 on a 23' and is 1500 towable... maxed out but I did it last season before the Dmax. Never an issue and love it.

People who couldnt afford a WW or people that own other generic trailers always talk shiat! Just drive out to the desert and tell me how many WW you see over anything else....there is a reason! As for the warranty thing....go read the post over on RF....They are restructuring the company right now...I called and my warranty is still valid I just cant bring it in until Augusat IF i need to do that.....otherwise i can go have warranty work done anywhere I want and they will OK it after this restructing is over. There is no warranty void, they are not going out of buisness. They have been around the longest and still make IMO the best trailers out there. I didnt buy the WW name, I actually shopped around and was honest with myself....the other trailers like attitude and Rag'n are cheaper for a reason!!! WW is the shit.....Quit hating!
