Recently got a toy hauler for reasons other than having a toy...but since we have the capability, considering if we want to get a toy.

We aren't into harleys and are too old and fat for dirt bikes or quads.

We could get a side by side but not sure we would use it enough to justify the hassles when not in an area with a lot of off road trails. It's a smaller toy hauler and the garage is also part of the living space, so it would have to get unloaded most stops.

Ideally, would like something that would be street legal so it could get more use but could do some modest trail riding (like forest roads, not heavy duty stuff like mud bogging or rock crawling).

So far the only thing we've come up with would be a motorcycle with sidecar (high ground clearance version).

Thoughts?

tough one. I was going to suggest golf cart but that won't be street legal. you can plate/use a SxS in some states but not most. Having to unload every night though, for something you use occassionally would be a deal breaker for me, way too much hassle.

One option is a small 4x4 like a Suzuki Samarai, hard to find though

A couple tw200s strapped down sideways in the back.

Or maybe those new fancy electric mountain bikes.

I agree about the electric mountain bikes...hard to find nowadays however. Get the biggest battery you can find.

If you don't already know what toy you want, then I'd second wopachops recommendation -- go with a pair of mountain bikes (electric or not).

They are street legal for a quick jaunt to town (add rear baskets or even a bike trailer if you want to haul groceries back), or you can take them on trails.

We have a RZR SxS and love exploring off-road locations. It's also licensed for street use. Lots of trails out there.

Along the Oregon Coast this summer I saw one couple with a Polaris Slingshot, though they had theirs on a trailer behind a motorhome. Another couple with a Toy Hauler had a Can-Am Spyder. Both are 3 wheel vehicles, might be something to check out.

Thought about a sling shot but too big to fit, plus heavy.

Can-Am is about the best thought so far. Fits in a relatively small area and low weight.

It is limited to 4.5" ground clearance, so it does qualify as street legal but off road would be pretty limited. Not the end of the world losing off road capability but a consideration.

Now if they made a higher ground clearance version, that would be near ideal.

We just got a Spyder and it is an excellent choice for toodling around on. Much better choice than a sidecar or regular trike. And much fun too.

There are ways to increase it, quick search for "Can-Am Spyder increase ground clearance" will lead you to those. Easy to get a couple inches, not sure about much more.
