Wanted: 5th wheel toy hauler with at least a 16' garage and over 6000 CCC

I have a 2010 ford Shelby gt500 that I want to haul in a toy hauler to road race courses for track days. I need at least a 16' garage and my Shelby weighs 4200lbs. I want a 5th wheel toy hauler loaded with slides. I just bought a 2011 Ford F350 super duty 6.7 diesel drw 4x4 crew cab king ranch to tow with. Does anyone make a toy hauler for my application? I want to be able to haul my shelby or 2 horses or my RZR S too. I need at least 6000lb CCC. I appreciate any help.

Hauling hayburners is a whole different animal, literally.

I don't think your F-350 will work with a toy hauler hauling a 4500# car too. The pin weight is around 20% of the 5th wheel weight and a Rapture with a 12' garage is 18,000# without any toys. Add in the extra weight of a 16' garage and a 4500# car and you will be way over your towing limit. You would have to find a very light toy hauler to start with....

The Keystone Raptor grosses at 18 k. With the average ccc being just over 4k. I just looked all of the toyhaulers over in Hershey at the show. The strongest ramp was 3k.
You would be better off with a haul trailer with accomidations. While not as nice as a toy hauler they are first designed for hauling.

The other consideration with a conventional toyhauler is that their ramps are in general not really set up for cars -- especially not low ground clearance cars with big lip spoilers. Some friends of ours have a toyhauler and haul their 2008 Mustang GT raceccar and personally, I worry every time I see all the wood planks they use to "flatten" the ramp out enough to get the car into the garage.

I'd vote for a conventional hauler -- I've seen some with a slide out to make it nicer.

Have a work and play 38fk. I put a 71 chevelle prostreet in the back, it has only 4 inches of ground clearance. 18 foot cargo area.

What are you pulling it with and what does it weigh?

Your truck should be more than able to pull most any trailer you pick as it is rated to pull up to 26k.

A gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26K does NOT mean that "....it is rated to pull up to 26K." Rather, it means that the combined weight of the loaded truck and loaded trailer cannot exceed 26K.

Yep, and since his truck weighs in around 8500# dry ( he has around 17,000 max that he can pull safely with a tank of fuel and just him in the truck.

This is the set up he needs:

I understand that but the trailer towing capacity not the gross combined is 26k. Do research! Don't just spout off with limited knowledge and send somebody in the wrong direction.

To give the accurate gcwr it is 33,000 lbs so I am not completely correct either with a 2011 f350 you can tow up to 24,500.

33,000 lbs GCWR on a 2011 F350 with an unspecified axle ratio??? Really???

3.73 rear gear. Really! Just do research you obviously have Internet access use it to learn a little as opposed to again spouting off inaccurate information. Some people take what is said on these forums as the accurate truth. When someone asks a specific product knowledge question it is not open for your interpretation nor is this type of question something that requires an opinion, the numbers are the numbers. If you have specific and related experience to the specific subject (I.e. you pull a trailer the same size as they are asking about or have the same exact truck) then please tell about your experiences. But since you didn't know the tow rating and got confused with the difference between the tow rating and gcwr I assume you do not have the same truck.
