What does everyone's crystal ball foresee in the next five years or so for class A toyhaulers? I am thinking about picking up a nice used 07-08 Outlaw and was dreaming about what I might find in 2019?

I'm pretty sure they'll no longer have wheels since the hover craft will have taken over by then

A few months ago, I posted what I thought would be the future of Class A Toy Haulers...something smaller, like the new Thor Axis/Vegas with just enough room for a couple bikes.

But now, I think that we will see rigs exactly the Outlaw and Canyon Star 3920/1 riding on chassis made by Ford and hopefully some competition like Spartan's Extol and Revel chassis, with an internal combustion engine and conventional driveline. What will change is the engine will run on renewable and very clean burning LNG/CNG.

They just have to figure out how to produce the fuel tanks that must hold over 3000lb psi or stay cold to below zero for reasonable costs.

But I could wrong...the tree huggers want to take your RV away from you now

Safe travels

We have a 08 Outlaw on a Workhorse Chassis 8.1 and Allison 6 speed. We have had it now for 4 years and it was just luck that we decided on this MH over others. We have had 5vers and trailors so this was a big move for us. You find you learn a much more after you own than when your looking. In our opinion it was good value for the cost and with good maintenance it has been doing well. Anyone that has owned a MH knows the amount of TLC they require if you want them dependable.

Bounty Hunter

Bounty Hunters are rare from my searching, so I grabbed these photos to share. See Post #3 on this thread for a model overview:

(Mod Edit)
The toy hauler area is sealed for the most part from the rest of the MH. Yet many of them route the a/c and heater ducts into the toy area from the main units. In fact, many owners complain about the poor quality of either air or heat being pumped back to that area. A few of the newer Thor Outlaw models have an optional added a/c mounted into the drivers side rear to eliminate or improve that, but again, for the most part, most units on the road simply duct the main back there.

The seal is meant to eliminate exhaust fumes from entering the main area of the MH for safety reasons as you state. But Im unaware of any casualties being reported from the large number of units on the road. Toyhaulers are versatile and popular and are extremely safe if the toys are properly stored.

I can't speak for Thor, but I can assure you that Newmar does not do this. The main coach has A/C and heat that are not routed to the garage on either toy hauler floor plan.

It's a bit of an issue if you are dry camping, it's cold out, and people are using the garage beds. The propane main furnace doesn't heat the garage at all, so you either have to leave the door open or run the generator because the only heat in the garage is electric. (I understand the need for safety, but since I don't have motorized vehicles in the garage, it might be nice to have an option like a duct to the main coach with a shut off.

I would consider switching if Newmar came out with a toy hauler on a Spartan chassis. Hoping to see one.

Well, come to the other side my friend. We always welcome a new Outlaw owner, and you wouldn't have to worry about carrying extra blankets.

EarthRoamer ยป EarthRoamer Xpedition Vehicles

It looks like there may be a new toyhauler available next year. Scroll to the bottom the the text on this page. It's based on a Ford 650, only about $750,000. I wouldn't want to take that first year's hit of depreciation!

I saw the new F650 based Earthroamer on a 2013 episode of Extreme RV's...they are taking orders now.

While it is impressive, it is still not a Class A...I believe most would call it a Super C.

I'll keep my wide screen windshield in the Class A, and use what's in my garage for exploring the outback. Can you imagine what the cost would be to rescue that monster if stuck off-road?

Safe travels

Lightbulb Fun Mover & Outlaw Super C & Class C Toy Haulers (Gas & Diesel)

I didn't see the Four Winds/Thor Fun Mover Super C or the newer Outlaw Class C Toy Haulers: Literature Downloads | Thor Motor Coach #1 Brand of Toy Hauler Motorhomes

I believe the Four Winds International Four Winds/Kodiak/Chateau/Dutchmen/Fun Mover series were available in Super C (Ford & Chevey) w/ Diesel Engines and Class C's w/ Ford Gas Engines.



Fun Mover Toy Hauler RVs (1997,1998,1999,2000?)


The Outlaw Class C Toy Haulers are available in Ford F-550 Super C Diesel's and Ford Gas Class C Motorhome chassis (2014 First Year & 2015's too):

Thanks for the post, JTraveler!

But, please notice this thread is Titled and all About Class A Toy Haulers.

The iRV2 staff even made the thread a "sticky" to stay at the top of the Class A Motorhome Discussion Forum.

Class C and Super C Toy Haulers are awesome!! And iRV2 has separate Forums for those type RV's.

I hope you take all your great info to one of those Forums. I know I would enjoy reading all about these great RV's!

Safe travels
