Let me just say a couple of things:

Toyhaulers are long and they're typically heavy.

Toyhaulers require a dual rear wheel truck to tow them--at a minimum. If the toy load inside the garage are heavy items, sometimes even medium size trucks are better towing them.

Let me say, we own a '13 27 ft Attitude Toy Hauler made here in Southern California by Eclipse RV. We have had a couple issues with plumbing and minor stuff that I repaired myself.
I honestly do not believe the toy haulers are any more trouble prone than other types. Windows flying off is definitely a build quality issue.
Depends on how you treat it, and use it. A lot of folks that use these abuse these, from what I've seen here in our local deserts. Other like myself take good care and stay on top of any issues.

Toy Haulers Do Not Necessarily Need a Dual Rear Wheel to tow them. Max GVW is just that Max Gross Vehicle Weight. The Dually Losses a couple Hundred Pounds Compared to my 15 F350 SRW because of the extra wheels etcetera. I pull A 15 Carbon with no issues, and I have an issue trying to keep it down to 70mph. The truck just likes to pull. Harley limited and golf cart in the Garage.

....if you have a Regular cab SRW 350 you are good for 16.5K, I am good for 26.5K (by the numbers, you can tow what you want).

I have pulled with a SRW and a DRW. Despite the parking issues, I will stick with the DRW.

We just sold our 05 toy hauler. It stood up really well for us. We used it for snow birding and occasional weekends.

One of the early things recommended was to balance the tires. Several tires were substantially out of balance. Would have shaken the unit apart if left untended IMO.
