Author Topic: Anyone have advice on purchasing lightweight toy hauler? Which one? :-)  (Read 2574 times)


  • Posts: 2
I have an '05 GMC Denali and am looking for my first toy hauler.  From what I've read, my towing capacity is 8,100-8,200 and of course almost everything available (and nice) is over that limit. 

Any advice on lightweight manufacturers other than Weekend Warrior or Skyline (which I loved but only has a 60 gallon fresh water tank).   

I'm planning on mainly 'dry camping' so a larger water tank is important.

Really appreciate your help !

60 gallons is a lot of water unless you plan on frequent & lengthy showers. My motorhome has a 100 gallon fresh tank and that will easily last us for several days. That's with conservative water use, of course, but we do the dishes and don't neglect personal hygiene.

Just about every trailer maker has toy haulers these days, though the best of them seem to be fifth wheels rather than travel trailers.   I'm not really up on the various brands, so will leave the recommendations to those who own toy haulers.
