From what I have found posted here looks like Keystone is a good TH. Any issues with side loader toy hauler? or aluminum frame?

Weight capacity and size toys are a little limited. Big Road Bikes are sometimes to long to fit. Garage weight is nearly all on the tongue.

Visually inspect the pinbox where it meets the frame at the rear edge. If you see signs of tearing or lack of welds, run away.

No issues with ours except crappy floor vents replaced under warranty. We love ours. Some idiot designer put a bed in the garage, but dealer removed it per request before we picked it up. Bed took up too much room. Be sure to check your toys fit. Ours fit fine without bed hogging space.

This one replaces our former rear ramp toyhauler. We have found the side load to be MUCH easier for us. Most sites seem to assume an awning or whatever, so there is ALSO room for the ramp. With the rear ramp we often needed to load/unload toys before backing into our site. If we then unhooked to tour a bit, toys had to be left out, not our favorite idea. We never had anything stolen, but we did chain toys up. Beter to be inside TH IMO.

Tongue weight easily adjusted by amount of water in fresh water tank on ours. Tank in rear, toys in front, we adjust for 13% tongue weight, it was simple.

Remember that the side load limits your size of toy you can put in there. My Outback (280RS) is pretty much the same as the Kargaroo, with a 54 or 56 inch wide door. I sold my 4-wheeler recently snd just a purchased a golf cart to use on our seasonal spot. The golf cart is too long and will not fit. I never got to put my ATV in there, and it probably would have fit, but not by much.

quad seems to fit fine and checked roof for staple problem noted in other threads.. Hadn't considered venting and shall look into it. Not sure of the 13% tongue figure mentioned, as I have always subscribed to 60% front 40% rear loading of my equipment trailers.
