Is that a "toter"?

But, why not just skip to a full size trailer and do this:

Like TTs fifth wheels top the list if your going to park for a few days or more at a time. Motor homes are better suited if your moving every day or two. Motor homes dictate a toad to get around. Meaning two drive trains to maintain. Motor homes are probably the most expensive RV to purchase and maintain. Motor homes still need maintenance even when parked. Fifth wheels unless its a toy hauler dont offer anyplace for toys. Fifth wheels need a lot more truck to tow them.


Assuming you have a MH with a toad, it's a myth that there is any significant advantage if you move frequently.

Since the OP is asking about hauling toys, it pushes him to toy haulers right off the bat.

That is one magnificent set up there! Wow! I can't imagine how much $$$ is invested into that arrangement!


I bet for the price of a shop custom building that trailer, you could pay for the toy hauler.

Looking at the Monaco Winsdor motorhome, the Jeep and the Ranger bass boat I bet that picture is at least 10 years old. At least the stuff is that old, probably older. I wonder how much all that would cost today.

When you say "toter" are you referring to a truck and trailer combo similar to a racer rig?
A medium or heavy duty truck (toter) with living quarters pulling a trailer with toys?
Look at Elliot's custom trailers In Warsaw, Indiana.

Thanks Everyone for the feedback and insight!!

My wife and I have decided to go with a used 40-45ft DP. I have a few questions.

1. Which brand of DP is the best manufactured and most reliable to buy used?

2. If we chose to use a Trailer to carry car, bikes and golf cart, where does the RV Parks allow their customers to park the trailers if the lot is to small to store there?

And Yes, a Toter (Super C) is used heavily in the racing community. Right before I stopped racing Toters were just getting popular. If I can find a used Toter with the amenities and interior quality I need, I would buy instead of a DP.

Thank You to All!!! Blessings to Each of You!!!
