Fifth wheel and travel trailers are the most common toy hauler RVs, but the Class C toy hauler is also a great option.

A toy hauler is just what it sounds like. It’s an RV featuring a garage in the rear with a ramp door for access that can haul all kinds of adventure toys. Generally, these aren’t just any toys. Many RVers use a toy hauler for motorized vehicles such as ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles, or dirt bikes.

These RVs can also easily carry mountain bikes, kayaks, golf carts, and much more.

You’ll find that fifth wheel toy haulers have the widest variety due to their heavy Carrying Cargo Capacity (CCC). Travel trailer and fish house trailer toy haulers are great for one or two motorized adventure toys.

The Class C toy hauler combines excellent drivable RV living space with a garage that can haul an ATV, UTV, kayak, or other equipment.

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 are the primary manufacturers 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 8X10 garage so you can bring your toys, as well as a 7X8 patio deck which is perfect for entertaining. 

This motorcoach 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 stovetop 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.

2. 2020 Thor Outlaw 29S

  • Garage: 8 x 6 ft.
  • Chassis: Ford E-450
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs.
  • Sleep: 1-6
  • Ramp: 4.5 x 6.1 ft.

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 x 6 feet, and the ramp measured 4 1/2 x 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 cup holders 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!

Exterior Features of the Outlaw Class C Toy Hauler

Exterior Features of the Outlaw Class C Toy Hauler
With its solid construction, V8 engine, and many outside features, the Thor Outlaw is a great Class C toy hauler.

Exterior features of both Outlaw models include the Ford E-450 chassis. The 2020 29S used the 6.8L V10 Triton. When Thor continued on in 2021 with the 29J, the Ford chassis came with the new 7.3 liters V8 Triton (previously known as the Godzilla engine). Either way, the towing capacity stayed at 8,000 pounds.

The Outlaw’s chassis uses welded tubular steel, and the skeletal coach frame uses welded tubular aluminum. The coach also features a vacu-bond laminated roof and block foam insulation in the walls and floors.

Owners can enjoy lighted storage compartments, power patio awnings with LED lighting, slide-out room topper awnings, and a removable interior and exterior table that can be mounted in the garage or patio.

Other exterior features include:

  • Spotlights over the ramp door
  • Accent lights under the entry step
  • Patio railings for the drop-down ramp door
  • A manual awning
  • Bug screen curtain in the garage.

The garage on the 29J is versatile with a flip-down cabinet that doubles as a worktable. It also has its own air conditioner, a Bluetooth radio system, television and a 12-volt station for charging up the toys stored there.

What Are the Benefits of a Class C Toy Hauler? 

There are many benefits to a Class C toy hauler, and you don’t have to have the typical “toys” to love the extra storage and entertainment space. You can convert your garage into a workspace.

With the technology aboard these units, you can really make your work remote from the office and off-the-grid. From top-of-the-line WiFi capability, built-in wireless hotspot, Bluetooth radio in the cab with a touch screen, built-in USB charging ports, and solar charging systems, you can stay connected anywhere you go.

Use it for smaller toys such as bicycles, dirt bikes, golf carts, or a smaller ATV, or make it ready-to-go for a tailgate party with barbecue, chairs, televisions, tents, and anything else you need for an awesome party.

You won’t need to leave behind bikes, strollers, scooters or anything else that will fit in the space. Some people have even turned it into a quilt or craft room. A friend of mine even makes their garage into a space for their cats.

The sky is the limit, or just your imagination, on the many ways you can use the garage space.

A used RV is a great option. You get a rig that is already broken in and doesn’t have that new model depreciation when you drive it off the lot.

These Thor Class C models can be found at your local RV dealer, but also check out RV trader, and other sites for a great used model.

Don’t let your jaw hit the floor when you discover these beautiful machines’ costs. A typical Class C RV toy hauler will be in the six figures. Used Class C toy haulers could be well under that since RVs depreciate around 20-30% each year for the first 5 years.

Of course, when buying an expensive RV, you must consider higher RV insurance, campground sites that can accommodate you, and maintenance issues, to name a few. After doing some research, you’ll see that used RVs are worth buying.

Final Thoughts About Class C Toy Haulers

If you love the benefits that drivable RVs give you, but need the storage of a mobile garage, look into a Class C toy hauler. Thor’s Class C Outlaw has the family space you need and the cargo carrying capacity you want.

  • It’s great for the traveler who has toys to haul.
  • Toys are easily accessible from the main cabin.
  • Garage space can easily be used for an office to work remotely or a host of other options.

  2. The toy hauler could carry a electric wheelchair walker char chairs and so forth. And probably cheaper than the big one that has a wheelchair lift on it. And I would think it might be easier to handle driving?
