I'm guessing you can't fit the toys in the bed of your truck for the short jaunts to the trailhead? I bet that ranger takes the whole bed by itself...

How about a toyhauler to get you to campsite, load the quad in the bed and get a joehauler or the like for the KX (might have to go front hitch though).

Seriously though.. I got a non-garage toyhauler (Ragen SS2400) and thought that it would be a pain. Like mentioned earlier.. hose the toys off and the dirt isn't that big of a deal. Also, converting from cargo to living area takes me about 5 minutes max (2 minutes if my 13 y/o son is helping... Sweep the dry dirt out, roll out the carpet, press the button on the electric beds, drop the dinette and couch... And, (with my Rage'n at least), you can drop the beds partway, just above the toys and still have plenty of room if you are stopping enroute and don't want to unload the toys for the night.

If price is a concern, Carson Trailers makes a good lineup of low-priced/lightweight haulers...
