Awesome Cargo RVs That Aren’t Toy Haulers 347

2022 Keystone Cougar 290RLS

Why should toy haulers have all the fun? Known for having maximum space for your outdoor accessories like ATVs, toy haulers are the go-to RV when you need storage space. But they’re not alone.

Cargo RVs are becoming increasingly popular among RV enthusiasts who crave additional storage space without sacrificing living space. Suitable for the weekend warrior as well as the full-time RVer, a Cargo RV is arguably one of the best RVs to travel in.

Not sure which one to explore? No worries! We’ve rounded up a few awesome Cargo RVs that aren’t toy haulers, but still manage to pack in plenty of fun.

What is a Cargo RV?

Before jumping into our round-up of awesome Cargo RVs, you might be wondering what exactly a Cargo RV is. While the definition varies from model to model, the one thing that remains the same is storage capacity. If you’re into it, chances are you can make it fit — think kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, dirt bikes, and more.

With a Cargo RV, you’re able to store bigger items and more gear than you normally can in a Class B or small camper. Much like the toy hauler, the use of space is only limited by how much you plan on bringing with you. The more the merrier? In a Cargo RV, that sentiment rings true.
