I really don't understand the question. MOST TH's have living rooms. SOME are so small that the toy shares living space.

We wanted the same thing and found the Raptor 425ts to our liking.

We went into the dealer in July set on the Grand Design 376TH. The floorplan was perfect for what we wanted and I could carry a golf cart in the back with a little modification to the cart's roof. The downfall for us was the lack of a second exterior door. I set up a ramp for my Bassett's on the second door. We went round and round and decided on the Grand Design 395M. Great mid living area seating and we got the second door. Take a look at the floorplan of the 395.

Ours is like most newer models. The back has drop down sofas and bed and also a carpet that rolls out. Folding table as well. Not sure what you mean exactly.

That said, it's either a garage or a living area. With dirt bikes we roll up carpet and use as garage. For camping without bikes we roll out the rug and set up table.

When I hear "living room" I think a living room set up like a non-TH 5th wheel might have... stationary couches, recliners, etc. We have a "living area" in our TH, but it's just a 4 seat couch in the open area with the kitchen. Garage is separate, we have the drop down sofas/beds out there. I don't consider either one a "living room", as I wouldn't want to live in them full time [emoticon]

Exactly how we felt. We wanted a living room when the toys are out, not a separate room that we can use as kind of more room, but not part of the living area. We have a full size living room, with reclining love seat, sofa, dining area, entertainment center with 40" TV, and room to dance around if we want to. [emoticon]

Fulltiming in our toyhauler is eminently doable.

I can't seem to find it again, but I had run across a toy hauler that held a motorcycle in the slide-out and the back of the trailer was all finished living room. It looked perfect for those that only want to carry a motorcycle rather than dedicating so much room for a "garage" for ATV's and SxS's.

Maybe someone can identify the camper.

Those seemed short lived, I don't think anyone is making them now. Evergreen Alpha Gold was one (they are now out of business) and I think there was another. Over the years there have been several non-standard garage styles of Toy Haulers none of them seem to last long I think the market niche must be to small to support them, but some very creative ideas.

I think part of the problem with the non-standard garage styles is the dealers aren't informed about them. Our local dealer had no idea Keystone made a toyhauler like ours. He carried the Raptor and other Fuzions, but had no idea about the 383. You can't sell what you don't know even exists.

We've talked to other people that think it is a great idea, and one couple we talked to was going to buy one without seeing it in person. In fact they traveled from Ohio to Knoxville to buy it, but it was already sold...to us.

I guess I really didn't understand the question either. Nearly all toy haulers I've seen have a living room but it is also part of the kitchen. What it sounded like was the OP was wanting a garage that was also part of the living area maybe, non dedicated garage model. Those with the dedicated or separate garage usually have carpet that covers the garage floor so the room can be used as a living area when toys are out or rolled up when toys are in.
