The wife and I are looking to upgrade to a toy hauler 5th wheel so we can carry more of our toys without double tow. Currently we have a 34' Keystone 2 slide conventional floor plan and can only carry our kayaks and bicycles when we are not towing double trailers (which you can do in Arkansas). We are looking to be able to take a Can Am 3 wheel motorcycle, jet ski, two 10' kayaks, a 10' aluminum jon boat and 2 bicycles. I have it figured that if you back in both the can am and the jet ski they should be opposed triangles that will fit nicely on the floor.
I know it sounds like a lot of toys but just think about being able to spend 20 days in Florida, sometimes riding the motorcycle around sometimes using the jet ski in the bays.....
I was thinking perhaps to use the couch lifts in a toy hauler garage to build a second floor frame that would lift the jon boat and two kayaks (less than 500lbs) up overhead above the motorcycle and jet ski provided of course the frame and mechanism would support the load. Either that or simply install 4" square tubing between the walls at about 6' high and slide the boats in overhead.
My other thought was to find a floorplan that is a true 2 story unit with a 3'-4' basement with full living space over that. If the basement extended from the tail to the 5th wheel rise it could give you upwards of 30' of storage basement! If the floorplan was a rear bedroom front living and the bed was N/S you could also use the 18" under the mattress to raise the back of the basement to clear a motorcycle windshield! There is a mfg. that has a floor plan sorta like that now but the garage is only 9' deep which is way to short to carry anything other than a motorcycle
All the rest of the floorplans we have seen so far seem to cater toward a young family with 4+ kids that want to sleep max people while the rough it in the desert riding dirt bikes. No on seems to be building anything for empty nesters that happen to have more than one toy they would like to haul at once. All the floor plans have those dang couches staring at the kitchen that make you break your neck to look at the tv and are not worth a flip for entertaining other couples......Only exception we have seen to that is the Weekend Warrior with the "L" shaped couch but we haven't actually stepped into one of those yet.
So this is a call out. If any of you have seen a "different" floorplan that might be more what we are looking for let us know! Please!
