The best toy hauler motorhomes have expanded slightly since our last article on the late model versions. While the toy hauler industry, in general, is expanding, toy hauler motorhomes are a bit slower to catch up. Toy haulers are specifically designed for the most adventurous of us.

Unfortunately, to make it work, some concessions are made in the manufacturing process. Mostly in terms of living space in exchange for garage space.

The best of the best manage to do one while minimizing the other. With that being said, here are some of the best toy hauler motorhomes in the market for 2024.

Class A vs. Class C Toy Hauler Motorhomes

The difference between Class A and Class C motorhomes is pretty big. With Class A toy hauler motorhomes, you are getting a true home (with a motor) that moves. These models measure up to 45 feet long and are designed with all the same amenities found in modern mobile homes.

Class A motorhomes also include full-size kitchens with all modern appliances and large bedrooms and bathrooms.

Class C toy hauler motorhomes, however, as similar as they are in some manners, are much smaller and less luxurious than Class A motorhomes. That is because Class C motorhomes are built on smaller chassis, more or less the size of vans and small box trucks. 

Class C toy hauler motorhomes aren’t exactly small, though. In fact, many Class C motorhomes measure 21 ft. to 41 ft. long.

While they do offer up all the basics for living in comfort, as well as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room, they are just not big enough to put up much competition for the much larger and luxurious Class As. 

Another way to look at the differences between Class A and Class C toy hauler motorhomes is to remember that Class C is what comes to mind when most people picture an “RV” while the image of a Class A springs to mind just as quickly when one hears the word “motorhome.”

6 Best Toy Hauler Motorhomes: 2024 Models

We have six 2024 toy hauler motorhomes for your viewing pleasure. Keep in mind, that some of these are not your traditional motorhome toy hauler variations, such as the Renegade and the Show Hauler. They’re unique and usually highly customizable, which makes specific specs difficult to lock down.

1. Newmar Canyon Star 3957

Newmar Canyon Star 3957 Floorplan

Our Pros and Cons

✅ This massive toy hauler motorhome is capable of sleeping up to 10 people

⛔ Ramp has a bulge when closed, which reduces the interior garage space by just under a foot

  • Engine: Cummins I6 Diesel Pusher
  • Length: 39′ 11″
  • Tow Capacity: 6,000 lbs
  • Garage: 8′ x 8′
  • Chassis: Freightliner XC Series
  • GVWR: 32,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 10
  • Ramp: Unlisted

One of the first stand-out aesthetics of the Newmar 3957 is the incredible graphics. The motorhome looks super fine, even when it’s a bit dirty.

One of the best benefits of the newer toy hauler motorhomes in the Newmar lineup is the replacement of the Ford 53 gas engines with the Cummins diesel. More torque, overall power, and better gas mileage are always a plus,

The ramp features quick disconnects to convert from a patio to a ramp quickly. The patio is plenty large, with a screen separating it from the garage and an HDTV for evening entertainment. The rest of the interior is incredibly spacious, with a lot of counter space, lounging space, and sleeping areas.

2. Thor Outlaw 38KB

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The Tilt-A-View king bed helps to open things up near the garage

⛔ Patio setup involves a few more steps than some others on this list

  • Engine: 7.3L V8 Ford
  • Length: 39′ 8″
  • Tow Capacity: 8,000 lbs
  • Garage: 8′ x 10′ 2″
  • Chassis: Ford F53
  • GVWR: 26,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 12
  • Ramp: 7′ 2″ x 8″ 4″

When it comes to toy hauler motorhomes, the Thor Outlaw is always the first that springs to mind. There are multiple variations of the Outlaw, including suped-up versions like the Wild West edition, and even some Class C models as well. The amount of space in this version is incredible, with enough room and accommodations to sleep 12!

The counter space and storage options are very extensive, and the overall interior aesthetic is very colorful, with more visual pop than some Class A’s offer.

The exterior is just as loaded, with an HDTV (one of four HDTVs), exterior speakers, dual-awnings, and extensive storage options. If you enjoy spending more time outside than in, the Outlaw 38KB caters to that mindset.

3. 1492 Coachworks Super C

Our Pros and Cons

✅ One of the coolest aesthetic vibes in the entire industry

⛔ As a massive, niche Super C, the cost is……high

  • Engine: Cummins X15
  • Length: 35′
  • Tow Capacity: Undisclosed
  • Garage: Undisclosed
  • Chassis: Freightliner
  • GVWR: Undisclosed
  • Sleep: Custom
  • Ramp: Undisclosed

Stepping inside a 1492 Coachworks Super C is like stepping into a refined nightclub, or a rustic barn magically discovered in the middle of nowhere, or a bougie, upper-class condo that can only be found in the upper echelons of the French nobility throughout the Renaissance. The point is, you can have it any way you want it and it’s awesome regardless.

This is a truly unique Super C and the pinnacle of toy hauler motorhomes. The specs are a gray area because there are several customization options.

No matter what route you take, you’ll get four slides, two baths, bunks, and a master. The layouts are unique and the materials and methodology that go into the build are, bar none, some of the best in the industry.

4. Show Hauler

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Massive toy hauler with a state-of-the-art, loaded interior and exterior

⛔ Roughly a year and a half wait time on a new build order

  • Engine: Detroit DD13 505hp
  • Length: 32′ to 45′
  • Tow Capacity: 20,000 lbs to 30,000 lbs
  • Garage: Undisclosed
  • Chassis: Five variations of the IWS Signature Series Freightliner Cascadia 116
  • GVWR: Undisclosed
  • Sleep: Custom
  • Ramp: Undisclosed

Like 1492, the Show Hauler toy hauler motorhomes are highly customizable, with many builds and no specifications on anything in particular.

You’ll get those specs once you order your build. As a family-owned business, their focus is mainly on converting semi-rigs into Super Class C toy hauler motorhomes, with a focus on levels of premium luxury not found in traditional RVs.

Needless to say, the interior aesthetic is mind-blowing, with enormous space and designs that dazzle the eyes. These toy haulers will be the talk of any campground they show up in.

There’s no need to worry much about hauling vehicles or parking your favorite toy within. Depending on what build you order, you’ll have the capacity to haul a tank and stuff your favorite ATV inside.

5. Thor Outlaw 29T

Our Pros and Cons

✅ 13-year structural warranty, 6 years for the lamination, and a year for the whole thing

⛔Latches on the exterior bays are finicky

  • Engine: Triton V8 7.3L
  • Length: 31′ 2″
  • Tow Capacity: 8,000 lbs
  • Garage: 8′ x 8′
  • Chassis: Ford Chassis
  • GVWR: 14,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 8
  • Ramp: 7′ 2″ x 6′ 2″

One of the very few Class C toy hauler motorhomes out there, the Thor Outlaw 29T is the perfect representative for this class. It’s smaller than the Class As and semi-rig conversions above, yet it still manages to sleep up to 8 people comfortably.

Thor set up the garage section to completely seal off from the interior, with its own environment that you can use as you will.

Whether you want to haul a motorcycle (the limit is 1,000 lbs), set up an office space, or use it as a second bedroom, the 8′ x 8′ space provides ample room. The Outlaw 29T also comes with a warranty that is well above average. You may not squeeze a large ATV in here, but it will definitely handle a mid to small range, or a regular motorcycle, with weight to spare.

6. Renegade Classic With Garage

Renegade Classic With Garage Interior - Toy Hauler Motorhomes
Renegade Classic With Garage Floorplan
This is the floorplan for the 2509GS, and Renegade RV offers several other variations with garages.

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Enormous amount of living space with a large, two-part bathroom and shower

⛔ TV placement is an odd choice, over the cab bunk and at a 90-degree angle from the couch

  • Engine: Engines are specific to the below-listed chassis
  • Length: 45′ (2509GS model)
  • Tow Capacity: 20,000 lbs (2509GS model)
  • Garage: Undisclosed but varies with model
  • Chassis: Freightliner Cascadia, Volvo VNR, Volvo VNL, or Peterbilt 567
  • GVWR: Undisclosed
  • Sleep: 8
  • Ramp: Undisclosed but varies with model

Renegade RV offers 15 floorplans to choose from, five of which offer a garage space for hauling your favorite toys. These include the 2509 Garage, 2509GS Garage, CS120 Toter, CS150 Toter, and the DL-170 Toter. There are numerous brands to choose from, with four different engines and four different chassis.

Renegade, like 1492 and Show Hauler, is on the specifically niche side of the toy hauler motorhomes spectrum. Also, like the other two, it’s a magnificent finished product with a focus on heavy customization.

Renegade RVs prioritize space and, as you can see in the interior pic, the living area is very spacious, with a luxury interior that screams luxury and relaxation.

Things to Consider When Buying a Toy Hauler Motorhome

There are numerous important factors to keep in mind while shopping for and purchasing a motorhome with a toy hauler. Depending on your specific circumstances, and desires, these considerations may vary a bit regarding their overall importance in your case.

Here are a few of the most significant things to think about before purchasing a motorhome with a toy hauler:

1. How Much Garage Space Does the Toy Hauler/Garage Offer?

How Much Garage Space Does the Toy Hauler Garage Offer - Toy Hauler Motorhomes

Most motorhome and toy hauler combinations have what is more or less an actual built-in garage. They are normally located on the rear of the motorhome. Depending on the model, the size of these garages ranges from spaces large enough to fit a few bikes or ATVs to spacious units large enough for a full-size vehicle.

Considering this feature, and just how much space you actually want/need is a crucial first step when shopping for a motorhome with a toy hauler.

2. What Is the Maximum Weight Capacity of the Toy Hauler Motorhome?

In addition to the physical dimensions of the garage/toy hauler, another critical question to research is how much weight the unit supports. Many garage units in motorhomes with toy haulers range from 1,600 lbs. to somewhere 2,500 lbs. That said, some motorhomes are capable of supporting 3,000 lbs or more. 

Make sure you know how much your toys weigh and how much any potential motorhome and toy hauler is capable of towing or carrying before making a purchase. 

3. Does the Engine Run On Diesel or Gas?

As with the purchase of practically any vehicle, the question of whether it runs on gasoline or diesel fuel is a huge consideration to take into account before making the purchase.

The differences between the two are massive, and consumers find several pros and cons associated with each one. More or less, gas is cheaper, performs similarly to diesel, and requires more maintenance in the long run.

Diesel, on the other hand, costs a bit more than gas but promotes a smoother and more consistent performance level and does not require as much maintenance (as often).

Which you choose is best for you and your particular situation is your business. Just be sure that you’re fully aware of what sort of engine and fuel type you’re signing up for before you make the purchase. The budget difference will be pretty big, no matter which one you choose.

4. How Much Sleeping Space Does the Toy Hauler Motorhome Offer?

How Much Sleeping Space Does the Toy Hauler Motorhome Offer

It should go almost without saying that how much sleeping space any potential motorhome purchase provides is pretty important. Depending on if you travel solo, as a couple, or as a group, the amount of sleeping arrangements you need varies greatly. 

That said, a solo-RVer, or a couple, will do well with just about any motorhome, as far as sleeping spaces go. However, those with families or groups will want to invest in a motorhome that offers additional sofa beds, bedrooms, or other alternative overnight-sleeping surfaces.

5. How Much Extra Storage Space Does It Offer?

Extra storage space is another important issue to consider before getting yourself into a motorhome that you can’t back out of. And, let’s face it, all motorhomes are not created equally. Meaning that your choice is important and will not magically include everything you want or need unless you personally make sure that it includes those things.

Storage space is normally built-in and tucked away out of sight but where it is easily reachable throughout the entire rig. But, even in motorhomes with extra space for storage, space is limited drastically compared to what you’ll find in your homes.

So, be realistic when shopping. The last thing you want is to be cramped into a house on wheels with no room for all your stuff (let alone to move around and enjoy yourself).

Can You Rent Toy Hauler Motorhomes?

You can definitely rent toy hauler motorhomes, depending on the company you go through (Outdoorsy, RVezy, etc.) and the availability. The latter is the tough part. Since there are not a ton of toy hauler motorhomes out there, just finding one to rent is sometimes difficult.

It also depends on the season, with toy hauler motorhomes being available throughout the winter and fall more often than in the summer and spring. Anyone who wants to bring a toy along for the ride will want to do so when the weather is nice and warm more often than cold and wet.

How Much Weight Can You Put In A Toy Hauler RV?

How Much Weight Can You Put In A Toy Hauler RV - Toy Hauler Motorhomes

How much weight you put in a toy hauler depends on the toy hauler. The above Outlaw 29T and the 29J models are capable of carrying up to 1,000 lbs in their respective garage spaces. The 1492 Super C can carry much more.

Many of these toy haulers, especially the custom-designed ones, don’t list their CCC because of the variations in builds.

It’s a spec that you’ll want to pay careful attention to, however, so you know what you can handle and what you can’t from the get-go.

A Final Word About Toy Hauler Motorhomes

If you’re in the market for a motorhome with a toy hauler, hopefully, our list can aid you in your research. We selected these four particular models due to several factors including their superior size, garage units, weight capacities, luxurious interiors, and more.

  3. Thanks for covering those huge haulers. I just wish they can make something similar to
    the vintage Bigfoot 3000: 24-6+foot motorhome with built-in garage & tons of storage!
    There’s no reason American manufacturers can’t come up with something like that.

  4. Curious why no American motorhome manufacture has never done a design like the Ketterer 12000 car hauler. The concept and design to me is awesome and dies not cost you living space in the length of the Motorhome.
