Actually Mark worked for Alpha Leisure who already was building Toyhaulers prior to opening up WW.


Alpha Leisure Toyhouse was the very first toy hauler I saw. I remember when I saw it - a dual sport motorcycle event in Oregon, July of 1995.

Later on I heard about Weekend Warrior. After the same dual sport event, in 1996, I went to a dealer in the Portland, OR area (Big Boys Toys) and looked at a few WW models. I couldn't believe how cheap looking they were at the time.

In 2003 I bought a Desert Fox 21SW. I kept it through 2009 when I decided to downsize to a truck camper and cargo trailer. I was getting tired of having to unload the motorcycle and leave it outside all the time when camped.


2009 Silverado 3500HD Dually, D/A, CCLB 4x4 (bought new 8/30/09)
2009 Arctic Fox 811 (bought new 11/9/09)
2018 Timber Ridge 24RLS (bought pre-owned 3/12/20)
2008 Haulmark 8.5x20 toy box trailer

I agree, WW was Mark Warmoth. The RV Factory acquired the name, nothing more. I'd tried to follow his lawsuits to get them to stop using the name, but never found out the final results since Omega RV went out of business and Mark passed.

Riding near Ridgecrest/Inyokern this weekend (near the two shooting ranges) we started seeing a lot of horse poop on the trails, and then we saw a HUGE camp of horse trailers.

I told my wife & friends that I'd never seen so many LEQs before, as if I've known forever what that means. [emoticon]

Somewhere around 20 years ago or so I would hunt Elk with my brother when he would come to Colorado. He had his cattle hauler set up so we had an LQ in the front of the trailer after taking the horses out. Tarps hung to keep out the weather and a goose blind heater and camp stoves. Lived like kings in that. On a group camp trip 2 years ago at a nearby lake one of the group had a 3 horse slant with LQ. The quarters in that were nicer than any of our campers / 5ers / trailers. Times have changed a bit. Of course my brothers trailer probably cost him around $6K this trailer was no doubt over $50K.
