What a loaded question, right? What’s best for one isn’t best for all, so you’ll find plenty of toy hauler travel trailers on this list. Our hope is to highlight a wide variety of floorplans to help prioritize your decision, whether you’re buying your first toy hauler, upgrading from a small camper, or downsizing from a fifth wheel toy hauler to a smaller floorplan. 

First, let’s compare fifth wheel toy haulers and travel trailer toy haulers. 

Toy Hauler Types: Travel Trailer or Fifth Wheel?

tt-vs-fifth-wheel-best-toy-hauler-travel-trailer-10-2023

The two styles of toy hauler campers require different hitch components for safe towing. The best choice for you depends on your tow vehicle and what it’s set up for – or what you’re willing to spend to set it up.

The main advantage of a toy hauler travel trailer over a fifth wheel toy hauler is eliminating the need for installing a fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your truck. Fifth wheel hitches are generally more expensive and require a more lengthy installation process. They also eliminate your ability to use your truck bed for gear storage.

You’ll still need a proper weight distribution hitch for these travel trailer toy haulers, but the installation process is easier, and they’re easier to get familiar with if you’re a first-timer. You also retain the ability to use your truck bed for storage. And with that important point covered, let’s look at some toy haulers!

Forest River Grey Wolf 27RR

Consistently one of our perennial best-sellers, the Forest River Grey Wolf 27RR is a stick-and-tin toy hauler with a unique queen-sized Murphy bed that helps maximize interior space during the day. In addition to that bed, you’ll have a convertible dinette and two fold-down sofas in the garage as alternate sleeping areas to accommodate up to five overnight guests. 

This toy hauler’s 90” x 76” rear ramp door converts to a patio deck once the garage is unloaded, and the garage boasts twin beds that convert to a dinette. It also has its own dedicated entrance to the trailer’s single bathroom, which is a walk-through design with a door into the kitchen opposite the garage. 

The Murphy bed turns into a comfortable sofa during the day, but there’s also a privacy screen you can pull across once you convert it to a bed at night, ideal for when you’re hosting guests. It also has an exterior TV mount and an outside kitchen under the 15’ powered awning. There are multiple feature packages available for this model, but some of our favorite features in the Limited package include: 

  • Tire pressure monitors
  • Cherokee backup camera system
  • External porch scare light

This Forest River Salem FSX 270RTK toy hauler is all about comfort for two and room for the crew. You’ll love the queen bed in the main sleeping area and the fact that the extra spacious bathroom has a private entry just for you. The crew will love the 30” x 72” sofa sleepers that can be used independently or converted to a king bed in the garage once the toys are unloaded. 

Speaking of loading and unloading, this toy hauler has a 3,000-pound ramp door that converts to an outdoor patio with a 1,500-pound load capacity. The garage also has 1,500-pound tie-downs for securing dirt bikes, ATVs, or other outdoor equipment. You’ll find TV locations in the living room and main sleeping area for your entertainment convenience. 

The standard 270RTK boasts garage mode and sofa seating/sleeping mode with a removable table for dining. If you need additional sleeping capacity, you can upgrade to the Stow N Load Quad Bunk System, retaining all that garage space when stowed and dramatically expanding your sleeping capacity in camp. Our other favorites on this Salem FSX include: 

  • Outdoor kitchen with propane griddle and mini-fridge
  • External spray port for rinsing toys and equipment
  • Spare tire winch system

Forest River XLR Boost 2114B

xlr-boost-garage-best-toy-hauler-travel-trailer-10-2023

With the versatile ramp door patio system and a single slide-out in the main sleeping area, the Forest River XLR Boost 2114B is built for indoor-outdoor comfort. That ramp boasts a 3,000-pound weight capacity when loading and unloading and can still hold up to 1,500 pounds when converted into a patio deck. 

The main sleeping area situates the queen bed in the slide-out across from the entry door into the trailer’s single bathroom. This layout accommodates overhead cabinets above the bed, his-and-hers shelves for nightstands, and a huge dresser below the front window. Plus, you can enjoy a private entry into the bathroom, which hosts a 30” x 36” shower/tub. 

The garage is where the dining action occurs but it also converts to your extra sleeping areas. The opposing sofas create a comfortable dinette, but when the table is removed, they convert into a second queen-sized bed. Don’t forget about the queen-sized drop-down Euro bed above that, but here are a few other noteworthy features of the 2114B:

  • Docking station located in the outside storage compartment on the off-camp side
  • 30-gallon external fuel cell with pump
  • Renewable energy package with 200-watt roof-mounted solar panel and 30-amp interior monitor

Grand Design Momentum G-Class 21G

For those who want to maintain privacy in the main sleeping area, the Grand Design Momentum G-Class 21G offers a sizeable garage combined with the kitchen and living areas. The single bathroom has a separate entry to the right of the entrance, allowing easy access for guests or kids without entering the main sleeping area. 

The main sleeping area boasts a queen-sized bed, a full bathroom, a residential walk-in shower, and a skylight for extra headroom. The living room features two Euro-style swivel recliners with a flip-up pet dish between them for your furry RV companions. They’re situated across from the kitchen with a three-burner range, an oven, a high-rise kitchen faucet with a sprayer, and a stainless steel microwave.

In the garage, two fold-down sofas sit opposite one another and can be used as beds or to create a dinette with a central table. Another power-lift drop-down bed above offers a third sleeping area, so six people can sleep comfortably. Other features that stood out include: 

  • 30-gallon fuel station with interior and exterior gauges
  • Motion sensor lighting over entry steps and in the exterior storage compartments
  • Heated and enclosed underbelly with suspended tanks

Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pack 32PACK13

fr-wolf-pack-garage-best-toy-hauler-travel-trailer-10-2023

For those looking for maximum living space, the Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pack 32PACK13 is the longest floorplan on this list. The garage is spacious, the kitchen and living area feature a slide-out with theater seating, and the main sleeping area has another slide-out for the 67” x 74” Wolf Pack king-sized bed. 

Capable of sleeping up to six people, the 2024 floorplan offers a full bathroom off the main sleeping area and a half bath off the garage. That makes it easy for whoever sleeps on the convertible garage dinette or the Happijac power bed above it to use the restroom at night without disturbing the main sleeping area. 

With a dresser and a wardrobe in the main sleeping area, a central storage cabinet and overhead cabinets in the kitchen, and the large 13’ x 97.5” garage area, storage is far from lacking in this model. Other features that caught our eye include the 30-gallon fuel station, generator prep, a 21’ powered exterior awning, and the rear ramp door that converts to a patio deck.

Keystone Outback Ultra-Lite 240URS

Most toy hauler floorplans feature the ramp door and cargo area in the rear, but not the Keystone Outback Ultra-Lite 240URS. They flipped the script and put your cargo area in the front, accessible with a side ramp door that measures 56” across and includes an extension for easier loading and unloading. 

The full dimensions of the cargo area measure 93.75” across, 83.625” from front to back, and 121.625” from corner to corner. When unloaded, you can easily take advantage of the 34” x 74” flip-down bunk beds and the wardrobe closet in the cargo area.

You’ll find this toy hauler’s 72” x 75” king-sized bed in the rear slide-out, with a step up from the main living area for more comfortable access. This floorplan also boasts a sofa sleeper and a convertible booth dinette, allowing you to comfortably sleep up to seven people without setting up a tent outside. Some of our additional favorites include: 

  • Keystone’s standard SolarFlex™ Protect 200 package
  • Cargo rack prep on all bumpers
  • One-piece polypropylene heated and enclosed underbelly

Keystone Carbon 29WFO

The 29WFO is the longer floorplan in Keystone’s new 2024 Raptor Carbon Aluminum travel trailer toy haulers. The placement of the tie-downs in the garage area allows you to keep your motorized toys secured while still utilizing the convertible dinette and/or the drop-down bunks at the rear of the floorplan. 

For those with gear or toys that fit in that tie-down area, that’s a major benefit for trips where you need to stop for a night on the way to, or home from, your destination. You won’t have to completely unload the garage in order to dine inside or set up a secondary sleeping area, unlike many other toy hauler floorplans. 

The Keystone Carbon 29WFO also boasts a spacious L-shaped kitchen layout, making meal prep easy and efficient. The main sleeping area features a 60” x 74” bed, a privacy door, and a separate entry to the unit’s single bathroom. Some of the other features that stood out include: 

  • A hot and cold exterior shower with a 25’ coiled hose
  • The 6’5” interior height in the living room and garage
  • 5,000-pound frame-welded tie-downs in the garage

East to West Alta 2400KTH

Compact and yet somehow incredibly feature-laden, the East to West Alta 2400KTH is an ideal toy hauler travel trailer for boondocking, tailgating, or seasonal camping. The 97” x 92” ramp door can be equipped with a patio kit to expand your indoor-outdoor living space considerably. 

The off-camp side has a 30-gallon fuel station, a universal docking station, and a generator prep. On the camp side, you’ll find an air compressor to keep tires filled easily, a 19’ electric awning for shade, and an LP quick connect for setting up a portable griddle like this Blackstone.

This camper boasts a single bathroom but has separate entry doors to access it from the living room or the main sleeping area. That main sleeping area boasts a king bed in the slide-out, and you’ll also have fold-out sofas and a drop-down bunk in the garage for sleeping kids or guests. Our other favorite features include: 

  • Oversized windows with blackout shades
  • Heated and enclosed underbelly
  • 8’ interior ceiling height

Coachmen Catalina Trail Blazer 26TH

Coachmen’s new 2024 Catalina Trail Blazer 26TH comes in at that magical 30’ length which means you won’t be as limited on campground selection as you would with a longer toy hauler. It offers some functional standard features and a number of upgrades you should highly consider. 

That starts with the rear ramp door, which can handle up to 3,000 pounds when loading and unloading your toys. But you can upgrade that ramp door with a party deck kit to create an ideal outside lounge area once your toys are unloaded. Check out some of our favorite RV deck ideas for inspiration. 

Another upgrade worth considering is the set of pushback recliners for the living room, giving you a secondary place to sit beside the fold-down sofas in the garage. You can also opt for a solar package with a 200-watt panel and a 30-amp charge controller. Some additional standard features to note include: 

  • A Smart RV Tech monitoring panel that allows remote operation using the LCI OneControl smartphone app
  • Blackout screen wall with zippered walk-through and windows at the rear of the garage
  • Lockable ramp door latches and a 15’ Toy-Loc cable

Forest River Stealth 2530SLE

fr-stealth-best-toy-hauler-travel-trailer-10-2023
Photo by Forest River

By now, you might notice that many of these toy hauler travel trailers feature a similar convertible dinette with opposing fold-down sofas in the garage. You’ll find something a little different in the Forest River Stealth 2530SLE – swivel recliners in place of what would normally be the camp-side fold-down sofa. 

From a functional perspective, that opens up a massive amount of floor space in the kitchen. Of course, you’ll sacrifice some sleeping capacity, but with a single flip-down sofa, an electric 54” x 80” bed above that sofa, and a king bed in the main sleeping area, you can still comfortably sleep four to five people. 

What you use that extra floor space for is up to you. Maybe it just makes it more comfortable for meal prep. Maybe you can put a mat down to stretch inside before it warms up. Maybe you can set up a temporary table for hosting a holiday gathering in your RV. The beauty is that the choice is yours. But don’t forget these other stand-out features of the Stealth: 

  • 40-gallon fuel station
  • 335-watt solar panel 
  • Flipped axles with no interior drive on the wheel wells

Highland Ridge Open Range Conventional 25TH

The Highland Ridge Open Range Conventional 25TH features a similar floorplan to the Stealth but with one noticeable difference in the living area – a flip-up bar top with stool seating for two people. So you’ll have that, plus the swivel recliners and the flip-down sofa in the garage when everyone wants to relax inside. 

That bar top also makes an excellent workstation if you need to pull out your laptop for a few hours while the rest of the family is out playing. And when everyone gets hungry, you’ll have a three-burner range with a glass cover, a 17” oven, and a microwave to heat up meals. 

The drop-down bunk bed over the convertible sofa and recliners is the best place for the kids to sleep. You’ll also have separate entries from the main sleeping area and the living room to the trailer’s single bathroom. With an 8’ x 7’3” rear ramp door, you should have plenty of room to load in your motorized toys. Other features that caught our attention include: 

  • Marine-grade exterior speakers
  • Enclosed, insulated, and heated underbelly
  • Prep for a backup camera and a solar package

Jayco Jay Flight 265THW

Jayco sees that flip-up bar top and raises it with the Jay Flight 265THW floorplan that includes overhead cabinet storage. That provides a workstation or dining space for two while offering two jackknife sofas with a removable table in the garage’s 5’11” x 7’7” cargo area. 

Those sofas are larger than you’d find on many comparable models, mainly because you won’t find a drop-down bunk in this toy hauler garage. You will, however, find a 60” x 75” queen bed in the main sleeping area with its own private entrance into the trailer’s single central bathroom. 

There’s an entertainment center mounted in front of the kitchen for enjoying your shows from the sofas or the bar top seating. The kitchen also includes a three-burner recessed cooktop with an oven, a microwave, and seamless countertops. Our other favorite features include: 

  • 200-watt solar panel with a 30-amp digital charge controller
  • Pre-wiring for an inverter
  • Exterior TV mount and bracket

Our Picks for the Best Small Toy Hauler Travel Trailer

For those of you looking for the most lightweight and compact options out there, check out these two floorplans: 

Which would you choose? Tell us in the comments. 

Forest River Ozark 1900THK

Our lineup of small toy hauler travel trailers starts with the Forest River Ozark 1900THK because of Forest River’s wonderful Stow N Load bunk system in the garage. This system makes it simple to convert the garage into a functional living space and then into a comfortable sleeping area once it’s unloaded. 

You’ll also notice that the kitchen on the off-camp side of this trailer offers a wonderful amount of counterspace, making meal prep and serving easier in a toy hauler that sleeps up to four people. Plus, the ramp door converts to a patio deck if you want to enjoy your meals outside at any time of the day. Our favorite additional features include: 

  • Quick-drop stabilizing jacks
  • Dual-swinging 12-volt refrigerator
  • EZ Winch spare tire system

Forest River No Boundaries 10.6

It doesn’t get much more petite in the world of toy hauler travel trailers than the Forest River No Boundaries 10.6. Affectionately known as the “NoBo,” it earns its name with a superior off-roading ability compared to many of the larger models listed above. Plus, you still have excellent sleeping capacity when equipped with a rooftop tent. 

Capable of hauling two dirt bikes or a single four-wheeler, this miniature toy hauler features an outdoor kitchen with a two-burner cooktop and a combination 12-volt/110-volt refrigerator. When unloaded, the cushions seamlessly convert the interior to a 60” x 82 queen bed, allowing you to sleep guests or use that instead of equipping it with a rooftop tent. 

Many models, however, boast a rooftop tent, kayak racks, and a manual awning. The best upgraded models feature a 270-degree awning for shade on the camp side and rear of the trailer. With the most ground clearance in its class, the NoBo 10.6 is made for off-grid exploration. Our favorite additional features include: 

  • Aluminum wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires
  • JBL portable Bluetooth speaker
  • TST tire pressure monitoring system

Coachmen Freedom Express Select 17BLSE

It’s not quite as compact as the NoBo, but you’ll have the luxuries of an indoor kitchen, a 70” rollover sofa, a full dry bathroom, and an entertainment center with a 32” HDTV. The Coachmen Freedom Express Select 17BLSE still gives you plenty of garage space for your motorized toys or recreation gear. 

That rollover sofa is the secondary sleeping space at night and the lounge seat by day. It even turns into your dining area with this trailer’s removable freestanding table. The main sleeping area boasts a 54” x 80” bed with overhead shelving and a storage cabinet on the camp side. 

A full pass-through storage compartment at the front provides room for your smaller equipment, and it has a heated and enclosed underbelly for extended-season camping. You’ll also appreciate the powered exterior awning for shade protection and the sizeable holding tank capacities for boondocking. Our other noteworthy feature selections include: 

  • Interior and exterior speakers
  • Solar prep
  • Winegard AIR 360+ Antenna with optional 4G LTE Gateway Router add-on
