RE: Toy Hauler Door Capacities

for the vast majority of indiana built toyhaulers, it's either 2500 lbs or 3000 lb distributed evenly. for atc, sundowner, merhow, lakota etc etc it's 7k lbs to 11k lbs. i load a 1960 lb sand rail in mine. you can see the door bow a bit and mine is rated for 3k lbs. my cargo area states 2400 lbs on the wall. i removed the happy jack beds and couches so i could add 750 lbs to that #.

RE: Genesis Supreme RV Overnighter

i know it's a lot to ask but if they would give the shell a v nose front like the raptor 21fb they could actually make a much better use of the space.

RE: Genesis Supreme RV Overnighter

i have been eyeballing one of these models. this model in particular but with a couple small changes. i wanted the couches removed and the happy jack bed swapped out to a full height model. they said no but i then realized they thought i was asking for bunk beds. i do not want bunk beds just a single i can roll up and out of the way. it is just i and my wife so a couple rocker recliners would be perfect especially out on the deck. i would of course turn the bed 90* so we could walk around the ends of it but not a full walk around of course. i called the plant and he said he would check to make sure they could get a full length system for that model since the wide body overnighter model is only 8' wide. so come to find out the 2020 models will prob be 8'6" wide which is what a wide body actually is. so i think i would wait for the wider model. easier to load my sand rail and an extra 6" of width in the length of the sleeper!

RE: Just wondering

go right to the f450, it doesn't ride any rougher than the f350 imo. get the wheel balancers for it, they help a lot you will have the better brakes, betterturning radius and better payload from the f450 drw vs the f350. i have seen some nice f450's for the same money as the f350's just fewer options.

RE: Heartland Fuel vs. Cruiser Stryker

i have never looked at the heartland fuel and apperantly do not need to since i have looked at the stryker. stryker doesn't build a unit with enough ccc for a sxs or sand rail so i didn't look at any of there other models. looked like a decent toyhauler for smaller toys.

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

Genesis Supreme i have been looking at those and the attitude toyhaulers. how do you like yours so far? i ask as the eclipse toyhaulers and genesis seem to be the leaders in toyhaulers ( for full sized toys) compared to anything built in indidana.

RE: New 2020 Grand Design Momentum G-Class 29G

The 29G has a GVW of 12,000 lbs. Seems most come in weighing around 9200 lbs. with generator. That leaves 2800lbs of CCC. @ 1000 gallons of water, that's about 800 lbs alone. All ready to camp probably another 800 lbs leaves about 1200 lbs of CCC. We make 40 gallons work now, so probably carry 60 gallons at most usually which gives me 200 lbs back. 1400 lbs isn't much, but enough for a golf cart or my Harley. It is a tow-behind so there are sacrafices. Total CCC is one of the compromises. I don't have a 2000 lb side by side so it doesn't matter. If I did, I would have to travel with no water to make up the difference. I have city water at home so I am a little snobby on bringing my own fresh water. You don't have to clean out the lines or bleach them as bad as well water which gets pretty gross after being left for several months at a time. Did you have a sway bar on the wolfpack 30wp? I don't want to turn this into a truck war, but I had a loaner F250 last month and the suspension was way softer than my Ram 2500. I really struggled keeping it in the lane on the expressway, even with the bars at full crank. The Ram really has no problem towing without the sway bars on. I only hook them up when I plan on interstate towing. Truck makes a big different. A 5th wheel takes a lot of the drama out of towing. It comes with a price and sacrifices though. yes i did have a 12k load leveling hitch with 2 sway control bars. i also added shock absorbers and dexter ezflex to the axles. stepped up from factory 8 ply to 10 ply tires and added air bags to the truck. truck had front and rear sway bars also. prob was that trailer had to much tounge weight loaded or empty. imo it should've been a tri axle or a spread axle atleast.

RE: Pacific Coachworks Sandsport

i do not but that brand seems to have the better ccc for sxs's or sand rails. most all the other models really don't.

RE: New 2020 Grand Design Momentum G-Class 29G

i pulled a wolf pack 30wp sometime back with a f250 diesel. i WILL NEVER do that again. it was 35' overall in length and rated as half ton towable by forest river!! that thing was 1 ton dually only imo. with a f350 dually why anyone would go with anything less than a fifth wheel or gooseneck is beyond me. i sold mine and went to a wolf pack 295 fifth wheel on the same truck and it was a night and day difference!same length and weight or really close. now maybe if i had purchased a hensley anti sway hitch then it might have been better. either way 25 mph gusting side winds would put me in the other lane where with the fiver i can hold perfectly fine in 45 mph gusting side winds! i too have been looking at the momentum toyhaulers by grand design but the fifthweel models. they look pretty good overall. the real issue with there line of toyhaulers is they are not meant to carry much weight! look at the ccc rating very closely and you'll see that a built 2 seat sxs plus a few spare parts and tools puts you dangerously close if not over gvwr and you haven't even added food or close yet. i actually contacted them and said they are 1000 lbs short on ccc ( info in this link ) in there toyhaulers. they said most don't know there toy's weight as i do and finished by saying that model just wouldn't be a good fit for myself lol so make sure you know the loaded weight of your toyahuler (th'er) before deciding on a bumper pull model. not sure what toys you are hauling but the 1000 sxs models are all 1500 lbs to 2000 lbs depending on options and 4 seats a bit more. you beat something relentless and you'll need a couple parts and tools so 2500 lbs for a turbo 2 seat built or turbo 4 seat and parts plus tools isn't to far off. doesn't matter if you travel with a full tank of water or not as it should still be rated for it in case you have to drive down the road to get water when you get there. having looked at MANY toyhaulers now, i see that most do not have the ccc for anything more than 1 fully dressed road bike like a harly or gold wing, a golf cart or a couple quads. pacific coach builds for offroaders but have limited floor plans. weekend warriors were king of the toyhaulers for finish and gvwr. if grand design were to step up the ccc they may be one of the top ones but i doubt that happens.

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

sorry, didn't know GD made that model. now if they would offer this model with a 14' garage and put a queen size bed sideways on a happy jack lift, i would buy that one for sure. forest river did one similar but they won't don't use a 14' garage so my sand rails doesn't fit. so i am still using our wolf pack 295 until i find something new. i do not under stand why all the roofs ( ac included) are 13'5" tall! cut 12" off of that and reduce wind drag.

RE: The Complete List of Toy Haulers this company is a step above sundowner imo. they atleast offer opposing slides a better price. the weekend warrior line will never be beat on decor and function. they were built haul large toys that had some weight and were not decorated like retirement homes.
