Best Toy Haulers of 2018

Whether you like to travel with your motorcycle or go off-roading with your ATV, a model from our list of five of the best toy haulers will fit your needs.

At a recent local RV show, I was walking through a toy hauler and there was a guy inside who was analyzing every aspect of the RV. He was taking measurements, inspecting tie-down points, checking storage and more. While the sales people worked at getting him a quote, I asked him what he was looking for in a toy hauler. It turns out he is a collector of vintage Harley Davidson motorcycles and he likes to travel around the country to ride them and show them off at bike shows. The bikes are too valuable to ride across the country, and he was looking for a very specific toy hauler RV. With the popularity of toy haulers up, there are now plenty of options to choose from, making 2018 a great year to select a new RV for the motorcycle guy and for you, too. Here are five of the best toy haulers for 2018 worthy of a look and what makes them so special.

Here are five that I am going to ask you to hold me to.

RV Roof Crushed: Snow Damage

Snow can accumulate quickly on an RV roof and can cause some serious problems. Fortunately, you can easily avoid unwanted snow damage to your RV.

I was toying with the idea of doing this article, but started thinking that folks who live in the southern states wouldn’t see much value in it. Then I watched the weather and saw that Texas, Alabama and other traditionally warm states were dealing with loads of uncharacteristic snowfall. When the white stuff starts to pile up, you need to be careful how much of it lands on the RV, regardless of where you live.

We all probably need to get more exercise. Ok, I really need to get more exercise. At home, we can have a fitness routine and even head to the local gym for a workout. When you go camping in the RV, however, staying fit gets a little harder. Or does it?

RV Roof: Leaky RV Roof

A leaky RV roof can not only ruin your camping trip, but it can cause major damage to your RV if left unchecked for long. Fortunately, we are here to help with some roof repair options.

It stinks when you find them. Of course, I am talking about leaky RV roof. And now is not the time of year you want to be dealing with them, either. It’s cold and conditions for exacting a repair are not great. It happens, though, and it can be enough to make you want to cry, or drink, or both. Such was the case recently when we were tarping our camper for the winter. I noticed that there was a seam by the vent that looked suspect. Sure enough a branch had broken off a tree in high wind and had thumped the roof just enough to loosen a seam. Rather than hope that the tarp would be enough to keep water from getting in and laying waste to my RV over the winter, I decided to opt for a fix now in hopes of saving later headaches.
