Class C toy haulers are notoriously difficult to find. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that the industry just doesn’t make very many of them. In fact, there are only two new Class C toy haulers on the market, so shopping for a used (or late model) Class C Toy Hauler is your best bet. And everyone knows that used Class C RV toy haulers are less expensive than the new ones.

The good news is that there are some out there, if a Class C toy hauler is something you really want to get your hands on. These toy haulers represent the smallest number of floorplans in the industry, but that just means you won’t waste a lot of time finding the one for yourself.

Do Class C Toy Haulers Actually Exist? 

Do Class C Toy Haulers Actually Exist
Some manufacturers have released a Class C toy hauler floorplan in their motorhomes. For example, in 2004, Jayco released a toy hauler in their Seneca. It was short-lived since their customers preferred their diesel Super C with a full-length interior.

Thor Motor Coach has been the only one continuously succeeding with their Outlaw Class C toy hauler.

Some of the best Class C toy haulers combine a luxurious interior with functionality, so you take in all the best outdoor adventures and enjoy a beautiful place to wind down at the end of the day. Class C toy haulers also solve the problem of needing a large truck and trailer to haul your large stuff.

Since these drivable toy haulers combine spacious and beautiful living with heavy-duty storage capability, you really need to check these models out.

Thor Motor Coaches is the primary manufacturer of the Class C Toy Hauler. You have to look at the Outlaw 29J and 29S and see the differences between the models. Each of these can sleep a family of 4-8 with different sleeping options.

Check out the Thor Outlaw 29J with an 8 × 10 garage so you can bring your toys, as well as a 7 × 8 patio deck which is perfect for entertaining. 

This motor coach is 31 feet long with a GVWR of 14,500 pounds. Built on a Ford E series chassis, this Class C toy hauler is great for a family and sleeps 8 comfortably.

The cab-over bed can easily sleep 2, has plenty of headroom, and even a 32-inch TV for optimum movie watching. The couch’s slide-out makes this Class C feel very roomy.

The kitchen is cozy and has a full deep single sink. While this RV is pretty light on counter space, a counter extension helps to give you a little boost.

There is a three-burner stove top and two deep drawers underneath but no oven. A separate refrigerator and freezer will handle all the goodies, and mom and dad can watch their own shows on one of three TVs, with another located in the living room area.

This motor coach has a full bathroom, although small, with a shower curtain on a sliding track which keeps the curtain from sticking to you while you shower.

A door separates the garage area, which features eight tie-downs, and a queen bed descends into the garage area. The coach features two air conditioners for the main area and one specifically for the garage.

The Thor Outlaw 29S was discontinued in 2020, yet it was quite similar to the 29J. It was about the same length as the 29J, but the garage area had a different configuration.

The garage was 8 × 6 feet, and the ramp measured 4 1/2 × 6 feet. The S stands for side loading garage, meaning it opened on the camp side rather than being a rear-entry hatch.

This model slept 6, and the front sofa bed couch featured convenient cupholders and a tower for charging electronic devices.

To maximize space, the layout featured a Murphy bed that you could raise and lower at the touch of a button. The bed kept all the linens in place, so you didn’t have to prepare the bed each night.

Under the short queen-size Murphy bed was a 3-seater couch that gave you a perfect angle to watch the large LED TV. While enjoying a movie, there were plenty of household outlets and USB ports for charging devices.

Those RVers with mobility challenges could find the Outlaw 29S beneficial for wheelchair or mobility equipment storage since the ramp slope is shallow enough. Only you and your professional medical team can decide if this is an option. Note, though, that there is a step or two from the garage to the inside living space.

If you’re interested in the Thor Outlaw 29S, you may find one at your local RV dealer in your area. Our friends at GoRollick can help you find the very best deals on new and used RVs in your local area!

Why Aren’t Class C Toy Haulers More Popular?

It’s not that Class C toy haulers aren’t popular. There would probably be a fairly dedicated following if there were more of them. But they are more expensive than traditional Class Cs, thanks to the necessity of a stronger framework, using more expensive components to add strength without too much weight.

As such, most RV manufacturers don’t bother with them to a large degree. The ones that do, outside the well-known names, such as REV (Renegade RVs), manufacture them for a specific clientele who are more eager to part with a lot more money.

Class C toy haulers also require a stronger engine and consume more fuel on the road, especially if hauling a toy in the garage and towing your vehicle. With gas prices the way they’ve been for the last decade or so, that’s not a huge draw. This leads us to the next point.

Is A Late Model Class C Toy Hauler Better Than A 5th Wheel Toy Hauler?

It depends on what you’re looking for. One of the obvious advantages of Class C toy haulers is that it’s an all-in-one option. One of the first roadblocks people run into while looking for a 5th wheel toy hauler is the need to upgrade their vehicle first.

Ultimately, if you have to do that, the price of a new truck and a 5th wheel will probably outweigh the price of the Class C. If you already have a truck capable of hauling a 5th wheel toy hauler, then that’s probably your better option.

It just depends on your current situation and what you want to do. Obviously, setting up a Class C in camp is not as complex as setting up a 5th wheel, so there are some small things here and there that make a difference.

Are Class C Motorhomes Good On Fuel?

The average miles per gallon on an average Class C motorhome (not including Class C toy haulers in the equation) are between 14 and 22. Diesel pushers will cover more real estate per gallon than their gasoline counterparts.

That’s better than your average Class A motorhome. However, The addition of the garage saps that overall amount, especially if you have a toy in there as well. The additional hardware that has to go into the construction adds weight, which obviously affects the range of Class C on a full tank.

Final Thoughts About Used Class C Toy Haulers

Unfortunately, shopping for Class C toy haulers doesn’t present a ton of options. That number is a little more extensive in terms of newer models, especially if you include jumbo luxury Class Cs in the equation, such as the multiple offerings from Renegade.

However, Thor and Coachmen are generally your go-to options. They’re not bad options either, far from it. A Class C toy hauler caters to a very specific consumer base within the RV market and you don’t have to search far and wide to find one.
