Breaking away from The Beach House...

I started on this forum a few years ago when we were researching RV brands, particularly National RV, to see how difficult or not it was going to be in owning a unit from a company gone under, and I have to say I've found some very awesome information from some very cool people on here. Thank you!!!
So I'm throwing ya'll my next life's question. I'm almost thirty, single, and love to hop in the RV and head out and usually we have our ATVs with us. I say we in reference to me and my parents whom I ventured into a deal with on the national we own. But now it's time for me to get something of my own and move off my parents couch and out of their living room slide!!!
I've been 1/2 interested in getting an RV but not sure if I want to go toy hauler or MH and trailer with toy. I've got a Yukon XL 1500 so in not looking for a 40 foot fuzion.
Ii think I'm looking for a 16-22 foot toy hauler that has a permanent bed and a decent bathroom with a couch (or cold up bench) and a place to keep my stuff... I say I think I'm looking for something like that because I'm just not sure. I've a had a MH for a large majority of my life, but but also enjoyed the times we had a TT as well.
One thing is for certain, what I purchase has to be able to accommodate at least 1 ATV if not two, who knows maybe ill prove my dad wrong and get married some day!!!
The problem I'm running into is finding something like what I've described. We were at the RV show this weekend and there was one trailer that fit my bill, however it was $20k...
What should I be looking for? Any particular horror stories from one brand to another? I know I'm buying used, what should I look out for??
So many questions so little money!!! Hahahahahahahah
I look forward to hearing some feedback and comments on this venture!!
Thanks in advance!!

I've owned a MH for ten years now towing an enclosed trailer for my business which is in the motorcycle industry. I travel anywhere from 12-20K miles a year and the DP I currently own is draining my money like a large whole in a swimming pool. I doubt I'll own another. Back in November I made a deal on a VRV 26 FB toy hauler that I'll pull with my Chevy 2500 crew cab 6.0 gas. They have many sizes and since their made out of ALL aluminum their also very light. I didn't want anything with wood in it as I have had too many bad experiences with it like rotted floors, cabinets falling apart, etc. These toy haulers are not cheap, but it's a great time for a loan ( you'll never see rates like this again) and you have to remember about resale. A light well built toy hauler will never go out of style. It's been almost eight weeks since I ordered it and it's still not here, hoping it's going to arrive in the next week or two. More info VRV Cargo and Camping Trailer for ATV, Motorcycles, Quads, GoCarts and much more
