Bring the fun wherever you go

Part of the fun of getting away from it all is that you can partake in outdoor activities you just canít do in the city. But these things sometimes require extra equipment, such as ATVs and dirt bikes, and you need a way to bring them with you on your camping adventure. Thatís where the 2012 Dutchmen Voltage Toy Hauler comes in. Offering a flexibility thatís sometimes not available with recreational vehicles, the Voltage gives you maximum comfort and enjoyment.

2012 Dutchmen Voltage Garage

There are eight different floorplans to choose from, so weíll be taking a closer look at the V3905, one of the larger models in the series. It has an exterior length of 42' 7", an exterior height of 13' 4" and a garage length of 14'. The Voltage weighs in with an unloaded weight of 14,277 lbs, a net cargo capacity of 4,432 lbs and a hitch weight of 3,071 lbs.

On the 3" thick vacuum-bonded one-piece floor youíll find  5/8" Structurewood floor decking and radiant foil insulation, while the walls are made using welded aluminum sidewall construction and finished off with a high gloss gelcoat FG exterior.

The Voltage comes with a host of features that make outdoor living stress-free. This toy haulerís standard power package includes an eight-function LED remote that controls the landing gear, rear stabilizer jacks and power patio awning in the central control panel when itís not in use.

In the utility docking station, youíll find fresh and city water fills, black tank flush, by-pass valves, 100V outlet, light, cable and satellite TV hookups, and an exterior shower with quick control hose and sprayer.

Since the garage area is one of the main reasons youíre going with a toy hauler, letís look at what the Voltage has in store for you.

You can even choose to add on the Happi-Jac picnic table/bed combo if you want to convert your garage into additional living space. Other garage features include a 3,000 lbs capacity rear door and a sliding glass door.

Inside the Voltage, youíre treated to a 7' 6" interior ceiling height, thanks to the super slide. To make it that much more inviting, the Voltage dazzles with puck lighting throughout, solid maple cabinet doors and residential brushed metal cabinet hardware.

The U-dinette also includes 18" sofa extension, cup holders, loose-pillow cushion design and a store-away dinette table. Thereís even a large drawer under the sofa for extra storage. To keep you entertained, youíll find a premium entertainment system that comes with a Samsung 40Ē LCD widescreen TV, Samsung 1000 watt 5.1 Dolby digital stereo system with sub woofer and five surround sound speakers. When you want to crank the tunes, the AM/FM/CD/DVD player with an iPod docking station lets you keep the party rocking.
