I am looking for a 40 ft triple slide Toy Hauler and have no idea what to start looking at. We now own the unit in my sig, and like it alot, but some damed fool took me out to the mountans on a quading trip and I got hooked. I need a toy hauler that is a triple slide and has a big enough garage for 2 quads (1 700 lbs and 1 550 lbs) and a 750 lb Harley if there is room. The OL has insisted on a wall between the garage and living area. Anybody have any good suggestions on units?

Cheers
Bear

Bear,
SWEET !!!

if i had an ol'lady who gave me the green flag to get a Volvo conversion and a 40 footer with triple slides just as long as it had a garage wall, buddy i'd put in one of WWFan's fancy French doors as the garage wall that afternoon!!. Thank you ma'am!
(actually, that is a pretty decent idea ... Sean, you want to do some custom work for Bear?)

Bear, you truly have the TV for a 40 with slides and toys. Good job with that planning.
I would really like to hear more about your conversion.
And I also think that Raptor has a long model with 3 slides. I have always needed to be a little more weight concious with my F350 and my bikes in tow, so i have never really checked too much at the 40's with 3 slides. Sean has two slides i think in his 40' Weekend Warrior, and it isn't shy on comfort either, just no garage wall.

Let us know how things develop,
Mike

Sunny Booke just came out with a 39' Triple. One slide in the bed room, one in the dining roon/living room, street side, and one in the kitchen. It has a separate garage with 2k lbs load and I think its 8x10 or 12.(cant be certain). My buddy just bought one from Saddleback RV at Travel-Land USA in Irvine CA. The last time I was there they had another one, I think they were having a hard time selling it (they want't like 55-60k for it) Dry weight was around 13k with a hitch weight of like 1700lbs. The only drag was it only had one 50 gal. water tank, which is not nearly enough for a rig of that size.

I think K-Z came out with one this year as well, but I havn't seen that one. I don't know how you would work that out living in Canada.

Good Luck

Rod

Better look at KZ. They have a 41 ft, 3 slide with 14ft garage. It is really nice!
