They make just about everything. They take a standard car hauler and outfit it with living quarters in the front (you ask for a "living quarters trailer". If the garage is for a car, figure 18 ft, and the rest is left for the living quarters - it can get pretty tight unless the trailer gets long.

Not sure if it is considerd 4 season, but you can get storm windows as an option, and it has heated tanks. Fuzion 300/301.

With any towable, you have to order/ask for something like an "Arctic Package" to get real 4 season equipment.

Thor has several brands under thier control thanks to the economy:
I had a Dutchmen and it was a very good TT. Dutchmen now has 3 bumper pull Toyhauler models with varied prices and dress levels.
Dutchmen Manufacturing, Inc
You need to ask for the "POLAR PACKAGE"
• Heated and Enclosed Underbelly Protects Bottom of Trailer from Road Debris and Damage
• Enhances Aerodynamics of Trailer
• Beauflor Flooring - Cold Crack Resistant

I also looked as Forest River because they have a wide variety of Touhaulers including the XLR and Viper ("V" Nose) series.
Toy Haulers by Forest River

For Forest River, they call the cold weather package the "Extreme Package"
  • 12V Heated Holding Tanks
  • Dual Pane Windows
  • Enclosed Underbelly
  • Double Insulation In Roof
If looking for used, those with a cold weather set-up will be rare but well worth having, because the extra insulation keeps you warm in the Winter AND cool in the Summer...I used the fact that I had the Arctic Pack in my Duthcmen Denali as a selling point.
Bst of luck

he key word on that keystone was "customized". Many manufacturers will make what you want. Pace, Featherlite, Haulmark, they'll make whatever you want, just bring money. I believe forest river made a nice toyhauler at one time as well. I used to have a Carson. If you call them and spec it out Bill Modisette will make pretty much anything you want.

Arctic and Polar packs do not necessarily make a unit 4 season. A true 4 season unit has a lot more than a layer of aluminum foil bubble stuff in the floor.

So true, so true...foil bubble wrap won't make a rig stay warm.

I trusted that Duthmen knew what they are doing and my Denali with Artic Pack (now named Polar Pack) had a very good ducted furnace, a fully enclosed belly (enclosed with a triple-layer epoxy molded material), heat pad equipped holding tanks, and extra insulation in the box and appliance ports.

I boondocked in the Sierra Nevada during winter ('cuz all the campgrounds were closed during snow season)...the snow just slid-off the slightly peaked roofline. -AND- My trailer was the only unit to NOT burn in our RV storage area during the terrible 2007 Witch Creek fires because the enclosed belly protected the rig from the burning/blowing fireballs from the nearby wood and homes...MAN I loved that trailer!!

There are Naysayers on the forum...I don't get it. In fact the Naysayers even said I shouldn't be able to winter camp in my Outlaw, but I have. And did it in Washington! And, it was WONDERFUL in OEM set-up. All, I had to do was add a small thermostatically controlled floor heater in the garage so some guest could sleep back there

Knowledge is power and I was just trying to give Ryan some good feedback. Hopefully they will be able to make informed decisions and find their dream RV too.

I appreciate all the feedback. I'll check out the links. I knew that some toyhauler brands had models with enclosed garages that were bumper pull.
