Hello all!

I am new to the RV scene and am in search of my first hauler.

I will be living out of this full time just myself and a 90lb lab. With this in mind, I would like to have enough room to be comfortable since it is not just for weekend trips. I will be hauling my 2 seat X3 along with products that I sell and some show display equipment. With this in mind, I would think having the separate garage of at least 14-16ft would keep all that out of the way without having to constantly unload to enjoy the living space.

Trying to keep it below 30k, looking to buy used. If you have any specific models to look for or avoid please chime in!

Hi there. Welcome to the forums. “For Sale” posts and advertising are a no-no.

Yes, you’ll definitely want a dedicated garage for your x3 and gear. Take a look at the sticky thread for the complete list of toy haulers. It’s pure gold.

Sorry about that!

I saw the thread, but it only consists of current models with lacking information on older stuff which is what I'd be looking for in the used market.

Really hard to find any sort of list of models that only offer separate garages.

Which just so happens to be awesome!!! [emoticon]

We love our pig of a toy hauler. Sure it's big, but it's comfy.

when looking at used units, look for any sort of water leakage from the roof. Any of that can cause you a lot of grief.
If I was to offer one other piece of advise, AVOID any weekend warrior product like the plague.
Good luck with your search - you can tow quite a decent sized toyhauler with that truck.

If you want to stay within the tow ratings of your truck, you might be out of luck with a 40'+ toy hauler with slides.
They get heavy real quick.
If you don't care about tow ratings, then your truck will do just fine.

LOL. I love my Warrior.
Not all of them are bad.
