Those who enjoy grown-up, gasoline-powered toys — ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles and personal watercraft — discovered the RV world years ago. But what began a couple of decades ago as a handful of builders making a handful of trailers designed to haul powersports vehicles and provide residential amenities, has turned into a booming trend surging though the core manufacturers of the industry.

We’ve sampled the toy-hauler trailer market and come up with a cross-section of current products. The units we’ve highlighted are, for the most part, the lighter and smaller models, but in many cases larger models are available.

Product descriptions include as much basic information about construction, size and weight, capacities, standard and optional equipment as was available from the manufacturer. Note that specification and equipment information provided to us by the manufacturers is subject to change without notice. And new floorplans are always being added, while others may be discontinued. For more details, including where to find your closest dealer, refer to the manufacturer’s websites or customer-service phone numbers.
